Here we are with a comprehensive review of the Scrambler and the HyperScrambler 2 by the Juiced Bikes. With a slight difference of the Scrambler having a more old-school appearance, these two e-bikes almost look the same. In contrast, they differ a lot by means of the features they offer. You’ll get the idea. Below we have the Juiced HyperScrambler 2 review with a comparison with the Scrambler!
The Scrambler is an affordable e-bike which is ideal for daily commutes, while the HyperScrambler 2 is developed to tackle any kind of ride, as you would figure out from the table below.

On the table below, it is certain that the top speed of HyperScrambler 2 caught your eye. We’ll get to that. Continue reading!
As a start, the suspension fork hydraulic lockout of the Scrambler ensures the smoothness of your ride. On the other hand, the HyperScrambler 2 has a hydraulic lockout fork, yet it is as comfortable as the Scrambler thanks to its powerful features.
The adjustable handlebars on the Scrambler are custom short and customizable to any size, while the upright, high-rise handlebars of the HyperScrambler 2 gives a feeling similar to a conventional motorbike.
The Scrambler is a typical example of the average affordable e-bike with its Bafang hub motor of 750W with a top speed of 28 mph. That’s where the HyperScrambler 2 makes a great difference, as it features a 1000W Bafang retro blade motor which is able to deliver a top speed of over 30 mph!
The battery is another aspect where the difference of the prices of two e-bikes are justified. The Scrambler makes use of a 13.0Ah, 52V battery with over 45 miles range, which is the average value for e-bikes. On the other side, the HyperScrambler 2 adapts a 19.2Ah, 52V battery with a range of over 100 miles!
While the Scrambler features Tektro hydraulic brakes, the HyperScrambler 2 ensures extra safety by its 180mm hydraulic brakes. As you would assume, the Tektro brakes are not as efficient as the 180mm hydraulic ones, but again it’s good for an affordable e-bike.
The twist throttle gives the feeling of a conventional motorcycle. The gear shifter count makes no big difference in two e-bikes: 7 gears on the Scrambler, and 8 on the HyperScrambler 2.
The 20” x 4” tires coming on both e-bikes are perfect to protect the level of smoothness during your ride around the city. While the Scrambler makes use of City or Knobby tires, the puncture-resistant tires of HyperScrambler 2 will make you feel no difference even if you face bumps or potholes.
Resembling more of motorbikes rather than bicycles, the Scrambler and the HyperScrambler 2 come in three color options: black, red, and white.
For the Scrambler, you can get to choose from seven pedal assist modes: 0, 1, 2, and 3 -each has more power assistance. Then there is the S mode (S for Sport) to power up to the legal speed limit. And the R mode (R for Race) is used for determining a top speed. Lastly, the Eco mode is for using enough power only to make up for the weight of the e-bike.
The simple LCD display doesn’t offer advanced features. The Matrix LCD of the HyperScrambler 2 allows you to switch between 7 motor settings, just like the Scrambler. And it is always there to give you information on your ride, such as the battery level and the temperature.
While the Scrambler’s range is also enough for daily commutes, you can’t oversee the difference that the astonishing range of the HyperScrambler 2 makes. A disadvantage might be that it takes too long to charge the battery. You can invest in a fast charger and reduce the time to recharge fully to 2-2.5 hours.
Another thing to consider twice about the HyperScrambler 2 is that it adds almost 40 pounds to the weight of the Scrambler.
