Razor RX200 Electric Off-Road Scooter Review
After using electric scooters for a little while now, I was beginning to get used to the speed. It is a bit difficult at first because it feels like you are going a lot faster than you are but after awhile it starts to seem normal. I wanted to take the razor E300 off road a few times but after doing some research I figured this would not be a good idea. What would be a good idea is to get an off-roading scooter for myself so I could try some off-road trails.That’s exactly what I decided to do. I purchased the RX200 and was glad I did.
This scooter is specifically designed for going off road. The biggest innovation is the tires. These tires are much more heavy duty and have been made with a higher PSI and more durability to accommodate the heavy burden off-roading can place on tires. The tires are tightly fastened in by alloy hub caps. These keep the wheels steady which is important considering all of the stress the tires are put under.
Features of the Razor RX200 Electric Off-Road Scooter
Very Strong Motor For An Electric Scooter
The motor has a higher torque than the traditional motors, which helps drive the scooter with more power. The ride might not be completely smooth, but then again off–roading never is. Considering this I would say the scooter is very smooth and quiet for the amount of work it has to do. I was expecting it to be very loud when I purchased it. When I think of off road I immediately think “Wow, this is going to be a lot of noise.” But I was pleasantly surprised by it. I think this would be great for kids that like to play in the back yard rather than in the street.
Customers Love This Off Road Scooter
Of course this review would not be complete if we didn’t look at the other reviews made by Amazon customers. First of all, the total number of reviews is very small compared to the more popular razor scooters. I think this product was designed for a very specific market as a niche product and for this reason not a lot of people bought it overall.
An overwhelming majority of people gave the scooter 5 stars, but I decided to take a look at the 1 and 2 star reviews as well. There were only a few of these reviews to work with, so I tried to see what I could find. What I found was that the big complaint people had was about the battery pack.
A motorized scooter is even far cheaper than a bicycle
This seems to be a consistent theme with razor and is worth thinking about. I personally have had no issues with the chargers but if you had in the past this is possibly a reason not to try this one. If you have had no issues with batteries in the past and have had good experience with the razor customer service, this should be a good purchase for you.
Another review that caught my eye was someone saying that you should just save up and buy a moped. While this may be good advice for some people, I think the two are entirely different products. Scooters provide a much better bang for your buck and can be used by kids as well.
A motorized scooter is even far cheaper than a bicycle! I am not denying that a moped could be a good investment for some but I think for the sake of us, the people who like to ride scooters, this is not something we would consider.

Overall this product is pretty good. I am not as big into off-roading so this didn’t make a huge impression on me but I will make a case for it. If your kids like to play on the grass instead of the street, this is a good product. If you have a big backyard this would be a good product as well. There are many people that the RX200 would work for and it is definitely a good product to fit it’s recommended use.
