Razor E125 Electric Scooter Review

The Razor E125 is a solid performer for the smaller or younger rider. Geared to the 8-12 yr old market, this electric scooter is a great introduction to powered riding or for light duty use. For some, it may be their first scooter. Others may find it meets all their needs, now and in the future.

E125

Silver E125

Larger riders and more experienced operators who want higher performance probably wouldn’t go for this model. But for younger/smaller kids, the E125 could be a fine choice. As with most Razor age recommendations, they tend to run a little high. A properly trained, equipped, and supervised 6 or 7 year old could handle this if they’re ready. As always, use your best judgment.

The E125 is available in a sharp-looking black, silver, and red combo, on sale today at Amazon.com with FREE shipping.

Features of the Razor E125

  • 8 inch width and 18 inch length of the deck for comfortable operation
  • Averages up to 10 miles or even more on a single charge
  • Hand brake and throttle on handlebar for intuitive operation
  • Adjustable handlebar adapts to riders of all sizes
  • Up to 40 minutes of continuous use, keeping you on the road
  • Motor engages with an easy kickoff to 3 mph
  • High torque motor to get you going as quick as possible
  • Max speed up to 10 mph, keeping younger riders safer and in control

Other specs

  • Includes two 12 volt sealed lead acid batteries and battery charger
  • Battery charge time 12 hours
  • 125 mm polyurethane rear wheel and an 8″ pneumatic front tire
  • Dimensions: Height: 36.0 “; Length: 35.5 “; Width: 16.0 “
  • Product Weight: 29.0 Lb.

Again, this kid-friendly scooter is ideal to get around the neighborhood, heading over to a friend’s house, or going to the park. Older users or those who need faster speed, higher end performance, etc., would probably be better off with the Razor E300 or similar model, though.

Things that are great about it:
  • Solid performance, reliable Razor quality
  • Speed limits and size to match younger/smaller riders
  • Easy to assemble and use, lightweight
  • Adjustable handlebar to accommodate a wide range of riders
Things that could be better:
  • Kids may outgrow it relatively quickly
  • Users have noted that chain cover can scrape ground during sharp turns
  • Good but not great battery life and performance

Again, this model still requires a small kickoff start. Not the end of the world, but many riders like the convenience of a standing start. For most users, it becomes second nature, though.

Actual users are very pleased

A parent from NY thought the E125 was an easy-to-use, great value:

For starters, ignore the comments that rate this item poorly; they didn’t like the color! I purchased the Razor e125 for my nine year old son. It assembles easily in a few minutes. He loves it and it is easy to use. It moves him along at a good speed, but not too fast. The motor has plenty of torque and it holds a good charge, lasting about 40 minutes or so. The Amazon price is a bargain, I could not find it anywhere else for less. I recomend this for anyone with “tweens.”

Another parent, H. Reed, (an Amazon-verified buyer) thought it was the perfect scooter for his 7 year old:

This is a great little scooter. I got it for my son who is seven and he loves it. I like that it is easy to charge and he can hook it up himself. It is the perfect speed and size for a child unlike other models. He has used it everyday and has not has any problems.

Differences with other entry-level Razor scooters

Final note: this review admittedly sounds a LOT like those for the more common Razor E100 or the Razor E175. If you’re confused whether to go with those or the E125, don’t be. As far as we can tell, they’re all pretty much the exact same scooter.

It just seems that different brick-and-mortar retailers get different models (the E175 is found at Target, etc). Amazon sells them all, and I’ve tried to make the reviews a bit different (different user reviews, videos, etc) to give you a better feel for it. But the only difference seems to be the label.

Conclusion:

The Razor E125 (or the nearly-identical E100/E175) is a good choice for the light-duty, average younger or smaller rider. It gets you there fast enough to have fun, but not fast enough to be a menace on the street or sidewalk. Especially for lighter kids or youngsters, this entry level model may be all the scooter they need.
