Bottom Line Up Front:

The Razor E200 electric scooter sits squarely in between the smaller E100 and the larger E300 in size, capability, and price.

It isn’t too big for many first-time riders yet still offers enough performance and size that they won’t outgrow it too quickly.

For some, the E200 could be the perfect first scooter if they’re ready. Others may find it a little too small and just pay the small premium to step up to the full-sized E300. Either way, you won’t go wrong, but for the right rider, the E200 will make a great choice.

Razor E200 Electric Scooter Review

The Razor E200 is their mid-level electric standing scooter, sandwiched by the smaller E100 and the larger E300. The E200 is about $50 less than the E300, depending on who’s on sale that day, and about $70 more than the E100, again give or take. Similarly, it’s a few mph faster than little brother, a few slower than big brother. It can carry a slightly heavier rider than the E100, but can’t really handle the larger riders over 150 lbs or so that can ride the E300 with ease.

You can probably see the pattern here. With 8 inch tires in both front and back and a generously-sized deck and frame, it’s more like a scaled-down E300 than an upscaled E100. All in all, that’s pretty good. It goes fast but not too fast to be truly dangerous. If a kid can handle a bike, they can probably handle this or other electric scooters.

Razor E200 Scooter

With a larger deck, frame, and tires, the E200 can handle riders up to younger teens, while still being suitable for younger riders that are ready.

As with other Razor products, many users find the official age rankings a bit high. But make no mistake – this has the speed and size to possibly get away from very inexperienced or small riders. Use your judgment and wear all safety gear, just to be safe.

This model includes 8 inch pneumatic tires in both front and back, unlike the E100 which has a polyurethane drive wheel. Given the extra 30 lbs or so in rated capacity, that’s a good thing – though admittedly both models will struggle a bit if you get too close to the limits.

Also, just like the E300, with this model you don’t need to push off to engage the motor. Once you turn the power switch on, just twist the throttle and go.

All in all, the E200 is a durable, mid-ranged scooter that will provide you with speedy performance in a sturdy package. If you don’t see the desire to upgrade to the full-sized E300 anytime soon, then you could save a few dollars and still get a full-featured scooter in the E200. Similarly, if your rider can handle a little bit more speed and size than the E100, then the E200 may be a good first choice as well.

One issue that came up for a few users was the ground clearance for heavier riders on bumpy terrain. It’s not as low as the E100, but the solid rear wheel of the E100 and the smaller riders that usually use it make it less of an issue on that model. With the E200, riders too close to the weight limit may have the motor scrape the ground on some bumps. Not likely a huge issue, but something to think about if you’re torn between the E300 and this.

The Razor E200 stacked up against the E100

Here’s another video that fortunately has the E100 as a comparison, with a younger sibling on it. Not the most exciting footage, but it does show the two scooters in action and how they size up.

Things that are great about it:
  • Very good performance, reliable Razor quality
  • Ability to handle larger riders than E100 but still ok for many younger riders
  • Full-sized frame, full-sized tires both front and back
  • Eco-friendly electric power on the wildly popular and proven Razor scooter
  • Adjustable handlebar to accommodate a wide range of riders
  • Pretty good battery power
Things that could be better:
  • Size may still be too big for very small riders
  • Larger riders may have a little bit of an issue with ground clearance on bumps

E200 owners considered the options and are satisfied with their choice…

Valerie Jo debated over the E100 or the E200 and is happy with her choice of the E200…

I bought this for my 9 year-old daughter and she loves it. I was considering the E100 because of the age recommendations but decided to go with the E200 because of the weight capacity. I’m glad I did. My daughter can handle it just fine and I don’t have to worry about an older child getting on it and breaking it.

“businessbroker” loves his/her E200 purchase and addresses some issues others have had…

Great deal on Amazon for a awesome scooter. Got it for my 6 year old, its perfect for him. Easy to assemble, trouble free after 1 month. I read other reviews and the reported problems, and went ahead and bought this scooter anyways. Here is my take on the reported problems:

1) Low ground clearance: could be a problem, but I showed my son what happens if he tried to drive it up or down a curb, and with any reasonable amount of care, or an absence of stunt riding, it will be fine.

2) Battery life: We have gone on 1 hour rides, up and down hills, and it is still running strong. My son weighs 55lbs, so maybe with heavier riders your battery life would be less, but no complaints so far. Also, we find the recharge time is significantly less than reported, the charger light goes from red to green in just a few hours. We do charge it right after returning from each ride, as suggested in the manual.

3) Speed: it really goes like a casual bike riding speed 10-12 mph, and a child under 13 certainly could get injured if he crashed into something stationary, but basically I equate it with a similar risk to a bicycle. On the plus side, my boy can now keep up with mom and dad on their bikes, without whinning after 15 minutes that he is tired and wants to go home. Also, some neighbors have the lower model, and its pretty slow and cannot take the weight of an adult.

4) Assembly/tire inflation: This is like a 3 minute assembly. Yes the valve stem adapter (inside the handle bar grip as per instructions) is difficult to use, but if you flex the valve stem so it is straight before trying to screw on the adapter its not too difficult. I wouldn’t let this influence my decision to buy.

Overall very pleased with the E200, and with Amazon its a great price. Neighbors ask about it alot and they are surprised at the reasonable price!

Conclusion:

The Razor E200 is a full-sized scooter that is approachable enough for many younger riders while still offering decent performance and challenge for older riders that aren’t too big yet. It doesn’t have quite the performance and size of the E300 but for many riders, that’s ok.

Some may find this a bit too much and be perfectly happy with the E100. Others, again, may be happier with the larger E300. But for quite a few riders, the E200 is the Goldilox choice – just right (ask your parents about Goldilox if you’re unfamiliar with the story).

Please note: The buyer and rider of this or any scooter are responsible for knowing and obeying all local, state, and federal regulations regarding the riding and use of scooters.

WEAR ALL APPROPRIATE SAFETY GEAR AND FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS FOR SAFE OPERATION.
