Razor E200 Electric Scooter

Product Report

This is a review of the Razor E200 Electric Scooter (E200S with seat).Razor E200

This is a scooter for young teenagers of age 12+. Its stronger than the E100 and E125 both with respect to the chasis, and the motor. It can reach a top speed of 12 MPH with its 200W motor. Its running time is longer than the aforementioned models, with around 45 minutes of continuous battery usage.

The E200 has a full sized deck, an adjustable handlebar and is capable of carrying a rider of up to 200 lbs, so most consumers report that Dad uses it almost as much as the person the E200 was bought for.

The standard version has no seat, however, the Razor E200S model has a built in seat, which costs approximatelly $20 more. Download the Razor E200 owners manual.


Consumer Feedback

"I bought this for my 8yr. olds 7th birthday to replace the blue electric scooter, "Razor E100" he had. He loves the color green and really likes the scooter but the battery did not last long and the chain came loose a couple of times. It would probably be a good idea to get an extra battery and tighten the chain a bit."

"Bought this hunk of metal in November 2007 for my 5 year old. I call it a hunk of metal because thats basically what it is now. Under a year I have had to repair the rear end because of some grinding noise that began to happen within a month of riding it. Now the battery won't even hold a charge."
Marsicano - Amazon.com
"When we received the scooter everything looked fine. However, after we put it together and charged the battery it would not run more than 30 seconds. We contacted Razor (paperwork which came with the scooter said to contact them with any problems)and they told us the entire battery/charging housing would need to be replaced."
R. Lown - Amazon.com
"Easy to assemble, followed instructions exactly as far as charging the battery, etc., and have been extremely pleased - my 12-year-old daughter LOVES it, and we've had no problems with the battery not lasting.Would definitely recommend this product to anyone whose child wants a motorized scooter. "

"Purchased this for my goddaughter who is 9. SHE ABSOLUTELY LOVES IT. It charges quickly, is easy to ride and it goes much faster than I thought it would! Got the same scooter for my nephew but with the seat (E200), but it does not go as fast, and charge runs out quickly !!!"
D.Reilly - Amazon.Com

Based on the above consumer testimonials, we can say that the e200 has an adequate price/quality ratio. There are issues with the battery running out of steam or being faulty, but the manufacturers 90 warranty means that bad batteries will be replaced within that time frame. The E200 costs around $160, which is a good price for the all around value.

Some users reported that they needed to adjust the break lever, to make it easier to squezze by young children.
