Summer is here, and if you are looking for a fun electric scooter to encourage the kids to get out of the house, you can’t beat the Razor E200 electric scooter. With a top speed of 12 miles per hour, it’s one of the best electric scooters who want to gain some independence and ride around the neighborhood.
The rechargeable battery gives your kid 40 minutes of continuous riding time, while the pneumatic tires and hand-operated rear brake give them a smooth ride and keep your child safe. A handy kickstand lets them park it upright anywhere.
As part of our electric scooter reviews, the full review is below.
The Razor E200 electric scooter is another popular Razor kid’s vehicle with some solid features, and it’s a big hit with kids. Is it worth it? Let’s find out.
The Razor E200 electric scooter has all the features that parents want and everything that kids crave in a scooter. The all-steel frame and fork make this ride strong and durable to the point that your child will probably outgrow this scooter before it has any structural problems. It is a lot tougher than it looks in the images. I also liked that the deck was nice and wide, with plenty of room for your kid’s feet. That makes balancing on this vehicle a breeze for new or experienced riders.

Along with durability, the Razor E200 brings with it a high-torque, ultra-quiet chain-driven motor, and it is all driven by an easy-to-use twist-grip throttle. The scooter weighs about 38 pounds and has a maximum rider weight limit of 154 pounds. That will allow most kids and many small adults an opportunity to ride.
I tested it on several kinds of terrain, like dirt paths, rough asphalt, and grass. It performed decently on all, thanks to those large 8-inch pneumatic tires. If you prefer a seated option, the TAO 49cc is a street-legal moped you can check out, but note it is gas-powered, not electric.
It is powered by a 24V sealed lead acid rechargeable battery system that will deliver up to 40 minutes of continuous use. The downside is that the Razor E200 battery needs to charge for about 12 hours. This is likely not too much of a downside for kids since, after 40 minutes of ride time, they may just wander back to some video games or find something else to occupy their time.
Razor recommends this model for kids over 13 years old, but like most scooters, there is some wiggle room as it is up to the parents to decide if their child can handle it. Some parents don’t mind if their child is a bit small for the scooter, letting them grow into it as they get taller. And some kids are more mature than they look.
This is not technically a kick scooter, since the E200 Razor scooter doesn’t need a kick-off to get it going. It starts automatically. Previous models like the Razor E100 for commuters and the E150 electric scooter did not have this feature. So if your child graduates from one of those models to the E200, it will really feel like a step up. You can also look up other scooter reviews for in-depth knowledge.
Lastly, don’t be intimidated by any assembly that is required. Assembly is easy. Most of the work is done for you before you take it out of the box. I think this review from Amazon says it all, “It comes 95% assembled…. My 9-year-old granddaughter and I assembled it in 15 minutes (I’m a 68-year-old grandma). So, yeah, you won’t have any trouble getting it on the sidewalk in just a few minutes.
Razor makes many kid-friendly electric scooters and has a great track record. Kids love the brand. The E200 is another solid winner. It has all the right features for a reliable kid’s scooter. A solid build quality, large deck, a quiet chain-driven motor, large 8-inch pneumatic tires that grip the ground, and it goes at the perfect speed for adventurous kids. Not too fast, not too slow. It also gives them just enough ride time at 40 minutes per battery charge.
