Razor E200 Electric Scooter Full Features Review
I loved the idea of the electric scooter so much I had to upgrade. Before I had the E100 which was a very nice scooter, but when I heard there was a faster option I knew I had to go for it. The E100 has a top speed of 10 miles per hour but the E200 boasts a top speed of 12 miles per hour. This is a pretty significant increase in speed, going from a jogging pace to a full on sprint with just the turn of your wrist. The scooter attains this speed with the help of its high torque, chain driven motor.
The deck of the scooter is also sturdier. Razor E100 had a recommended weight of 120 pounds but the E200 has a much stronger frame allowing it to hold up to 154 pounds. I think this is important especially with this scooter being designed for slightly older people. I’m sure a bunch of the people who use this scooter are well over the weight limit for the E100 so this is an important improvement.

Razor E200 Recommended to Experienced People
One awkward part about this scooter is the age range. I know its not a big deal and maybe no one even pays attention to me but I think it is worth taking into consideration. The scooter is recommended to people over the age of 13.
That means that your kids will have max 3 years to use it before they are allowed to drive (after they can drive they will never touch a bicycle or scooter until they’re in their 30s). I think this is okay considering the fact that this can clearly accommodate adults. I personally enjoy the scooter and it feels great to zoom around at top speed.
Great Scooter For Older Kids
Like I said in the review before, this is a great product for your kids if they are a little bit older. It adds a certain cool factor that I’m sure kids don’t see as much in the kick scooters. If your only goal is to get your kids to get out more and they think kick scooters are “dumb” then this is the perfect product for them. You’re happy because they get a toy that keeps them outside all day and away from the video game console and they’re happy because to them it’s like their own miniature motorized vehicle they can drive around whenever they want.
This could also even replace the bike that kids use to drive to their friends houses. This is not only a good product to play with, but it can also be a useful vehicle of transportation to help your kids get around before they get their driver’s liscenses. If you really want to you can have your kids run down into town on their motorized scooters and run some errands for you. This might be a good way to recoup some of the costs.
Razor E200 is Great Scooter For its Charge Ability
Of course you have to be careful with this electric scooter. It is not as easy to control as a bicycle and it is not as fast as a car so it should be never used in a busy street. If you live in a small town it might be a viable option to run errands with this but otherwise I would steer clear of it (no pun intended).
Analyses the Reviews of Razor E200 Scooter
The reviews on Amazon are very mixed. 9% of the ratings are 1 star which is the highest we’ve seen so far. A vast majority of these seem to have to do with the battery or charger. Because the battery and charger are covered under a warranty, this issue seems to be easily avoided. To be fair, a lot of the customers said that customer service at Razor is not great which may or may not be true.
Either way it doesn’t hurt to do research on a product before purchasing it. 71% of the reviews on the other hand were positive with one customer even writing a page long testimonial stating that it has been his primary mode of transportation for the past 8 months! Wow!! That’s just about as much as you can ask for from a product.
