This Razor E90 Electric Scooter review takes a look at the new electric scooter for kids from Razor. It is ideal for the teen or pre-teen who needs to travel for short distances on a daily basis, or who just wants to ride it for fun.
The Razor E90 is also a natural progression for those kids who’ve been using a non-motorized kick scooter and who want to upgrade to an electrical scooter. My friend bought this scooter for his daughter and I’ve been quite impressed with its performance, durability and overall value for money.
The Ideal Entry-Level Electric Scooter
The E90 has been designed as the ideal entry-level electric scooter for children from ages 8 and upwards. In fact, the scooter can carry children with a weight of up to 120 lbs. In addition, the scooter has been designed to be easy to use and handle. It is more lightweight and therefore easier to handle and manoeuvre than other Razor electric scooters belonging to the same range, such as the Razor E100, E200 and E300.
The Razor E90 comes with a push-button throttle control, a rear footbrake, a kick-start electric motor and rubber handgrips to make it very easy to operate. The scooter is fitted with an easy-to-use spring-loaded kickstand which ensures that the scooter will be kept in an upright position when not in use.
A Durable and Powerful Ride
The heavy-duty (but lightweight) frame manufactured from steel, as well as the wheels made from durable urethane, ensure that the E90 is a rugged and high quality ride that should last for a long time.
Although this is an entry-level electric scooter, it still comes with a powerful 12-Volt chain-driven electric motor that is capable of propelling the rider around at a top speed of 9 miles per hour. The manufacturer states that the scooter can operate for 50 minutes on a single charge of its sealed rechargeable lead acid battery and my friend discovered that the battery will actually last longer if his daughter does not ride at full speed all the time.
Using the Razor E90 Electric Scooter
My friend’s daughter uses her scooter on a daily basis to commute to school and back, as well as to some after-hours school activities and to visit nearby friends and therefore her scooter must be charged every night. It is actually so simple to charge the scooter’s battery with the included battery charger that she now does that every night by herself. She has quickly learned that if she doesn’t remember to charge it, she’ll just have to use her legs to scoot around on her scooter the next day!
In any case, if the battery goes flat during a particular day, the E90 is still light enough to be used as a kick scooter for the rest of the day. However, she also uses the scooter for fun and not just in her daily commute.
The Razor E90 vs. the Razor E100
In design, the Razor E90 Electric Scooter and the Razor E100 seem fairly similar, but as the entry-level scooter, the E90 is obviously cheaper than the E100. As a consequence of its lightweight design, the Razor E90 can actually operate about 10 minutes longer on a single battery charge than the E100, but its top speed is nearly similar to that of the E100, which has a top speed of 10 miles per hour. The E90 is also easier to transport around.
The Razor E100 has a twist-grip throttle as opposed to the E90’s push-button throttle control, and it has a hand-operated front brake versus the E90’s rear footbrake. However, both scooters are designed for children of ages 8 and up, and both can carry riders with a maximum weight of 120 lbs.
When comparing the above-mentioned facts, it seems that the E90 might actually be a better buy than its older brother, the E100.
