The Razor Electric Scooter fulfills that childhood fantasy of a self propelled device, and in this case it’s a scooter. When you were a child how many times did you wish your bicycle would magically pedal itself, or the push go-cart you and your friends made wound some how grow a motor?
You see, when you were a child, you knew that you have to wait until at least your sixteenth birthday before you can have a crack a getting behind the wheel of a car. But, with the Razor electric scooter, you can have the taste of motorized population at a much younger age. All of a sudden instead of concentrating on peddling or pushing, you are riding along looking around at the changing scenery. You can hear the hum of the small electric motor driving you to school or the baseball field. It isn’t going to break any land speed records, but that doesn’t matter, you have broken the shackles of having to self propel yourself.
Now some may say that the Razor electric scooter just helps to add to the obesity problem in North America. Well, I have a different opinion. The electric scooter will promote much more exercise than playing video games in the basement. The electric scooter gets kids outside and exploring, interacting with their environment. Also, these scooters don’t have unlimited power supplies. It is inevitable that the battery will run out, and to keep riding the scooter you have to push it, old school style.
I initially purchased a Razor electric scooter for my 9 year old son. What I soon found out is that I liked riding the scooter too. I live less than one mile from work. On the days my son leaves his scooter at home I often ride it to work. You should have seen the look on some of my co-workers faces as I glided by them in the parking lot with the smooth whiling sound the electric motor makes.
This brings me to my next point; these electric scooters are a fantastic, fun, and environmentally way of speeding up small commutes. I have to admit, I purchased a Razor E325 Electric Scooter for my self, even with the funny looks my wife keeps giving me, I love riding it.
Some people spend tens of thousands of dollars during their midlife years trying to recreate experiences of their childhood. I spent well under $200, and I would argue it’s the best 200 bucks I’ve spent in awhile.
