Now available via Indiegogo, the Dragonfly Hyperscooter features full-tilt steering and 4-wheel dual independent damped suspension, two 550 W motors, and a total peak power of 1,650 W to all wheels for a top speed of up to 25 mph. The price tag reads 1,750 GBP for DF and 2,100 GBP for the DFX variant (US$1,878 and US$2,254).

Today, London-based personal recreation vehicle company D-Fly takes e-mobility one step ahead with the Dragonfly Hyperscooter, which is described as "a technological marvel and a triumph of human ingenuity and innovation." This e-scooter was developed by an award-winning team of British and American engineers and features full-tilt steering, 4-wheel dual independent damped suspension, as well as a modern design.

Jez Williman, founder and CEO of D-Fly Group: "The urban mobility industry is burgeoning, and we realized a need for a more advanced, high-quality product that would usher in a new era of e-mobility. With Dragonfly, we are confident that we have created something truly special that will change the way people move around cities and not only today but forever."

Thanks to its design and features, the Dragonfly Hyperscooter syncs with the motions of the rider and improves handling at any speed. Its two 550 W motors can push a peak power of up to 1,650 W to all wheels, allowing for speeds of up to 25 mph (40 km/h) across various surfaces. The list of technical specs also includes a 3.5-inch digital screen that shows speed, range, speed mode, light status, and battery performance, 10-inch pneumatic tires from natural rubber, 80 km autonomy, GPS tracking security, and more.

The two versions available are the urban DF and the DFX, which targets off-road lovers. The price of the DF is 1,750 GBP (about US$1,868) and its adventure-ready sibling retails for 2,100 GBP (the equivalent of US$2,241). However, these are the early bird prices available via this Indiegogo page. The full retail pricing is noticeably higher, with 2,500 GBP (US$2,668) and 3,000 GBP (US$3,202) price tags for the two Dragonfly Hyperscooter models.
