Klima vs Mantis – Conclusion

The Mantis King GT is clearly the winner based on speed/$ and range/$, which are two of our favorite metrics. However, the Klima isn’t far behind, and it certainly makes up for it with its added high-tech features, and is a newer scooter. Overall, we’d recommend the King GT for racing + off-roading, and the Klima for city cruising.
