Very Cheap Electric Scooters Can Be Fun For Kids and Adults Too
Unless I miss my guess anybody who wants a very cheap electric scooter has to check out the Razor line. Starting with the E100 that retails for $149, this is basically a snazzy kid's toy. Top speed is 10 mph, you have to weigh less than 120 lbs to ride it, and it's built for ages eight and above.
Razor's E200 has a list price of less than $200 yet delivers speeds up to 12 miles per hour and runs for 45 minutes on one charge. You control the speed with a twist throttle accelerator, the motor runs super quiet, and the handlebar height is adjustable. It's a stand-up scooter, but you can also get the E200s model that comes with a seat.
For a few dollars more, but still cheaper than $250 is the Razor Electric Scooter E300. We have seen it on sale new for $220.99, and you can go onto eBay and get used ones for a good deal less. The E300 boast a higher performance motor and variable speeds up to 15 mph. Unlike the E200's 8-inch tires, this scooter has 10-inch tires that are extra wide. Recommended rider weight is 220 pounds.
Razor also makes E125, E150, E175, E225S, E300s and E325s.
Razor is not the only manufacturer. Currie Technologies makes the e-Zip for ages 13 and up and a weight limit of 240 pounds. It retails for $299, has 10-inch tires and a top speed of 15 mph.
I think if I were buying one, I'd go onto eBay and see if I could pick up a good deal on an MX Mod scooter. Top speed is 17 mph, the range is 10 miles, and it has a seat that's comfortable enough for an adult, just as long as you don't weigh more than 180 pounds.
You don't need to have a driver's license to ride one, but you are making a mistake unless you wear a helmet and protective clothing.
