    QUIET and so fun!, November 13, 2006

    When my 11-year old started begging for an electric scooter, we were very hesitant. A neighbor has one and it’s the stand-up kind with a VERY loud motor that drives us nuts on the weekends. We gave in, and went shopping. While we were reviewing the standing scooter, we noticed the Razor Pocket Mod and it was the SAME PRICE! I, of course, thought it was adorable and my daughter was easily swayed.

    It was easy to put together and charge, however pumping the tires was a wee bit difficult just because of the angle required. The tires are nice and fat/sturdy, too, so riding offroad or over small rocks wasn’t an issue. The biggest thing we noticed though, was that it is AMAZINGLY QUIET! What a blessing compared to the neighbor’s noisy scooter! It practically ‘purrs’ and you don’t even hear it until you are right next to it.

    Seeing her ride it is incredible! It is VERY easy for any child that can balance and ride a bike. The handle brakes/gas takes a bit of getting used to, but after a few days she was a pro! Her papa rides a motorcycle, so he was dying to check it out. Weighing in about 180lbs, he was able to ride it as well! My daughter got a big kick out of that.

    The battery lasts quite a while! An hour may not sound like a lot of time, but if it’s not continuous (kids stop/start chat/ride/play) it can last hours. It charges quickly and easily, and it’s small and fits well in the side of the garage. Though she’s 11, we were told by the salesman that younger kids who are responsible can definitely ride it.

    It IS fast, though, which was a bit unnerving at first. It doesn’t sound like 15 MPH is that fast (I think that’s what it is), but when you see your child going down a hill that fast – it seems quite scary! It doesn’t turn quite as sharply as a bike or standing scooter can, so they have to learn it’s limitations. Definitely get a helmet and kneepads!

    This is the BEST ITEM we have purchased for her in YEARS! Highly recommended!

    My daughter has been asking for a power wheels motorcycle for the last two years. We were hesitant to buy power wheels since the maximum rider weight is so low and she’d quickly outgrow it.

    When we saw the Razor mod, it was appealing for several reasons..

    #1- It has a maximum rider weight of 225 meaning even my husband and I could ride it!

    #2- The price is totally reasonable

    #3- Electric power means we can store it indoors

    #4- The size is perfect for our daughter.

    #5- It looks like a Vespa!

    The box says it’s for ages 12 and over, but I think that’s a bit silly. Our daughter is just 8 and is also the smallest kid in 3rd grade and the scooter is perfectly sized for her. My husband and I both ride full size Vespas, and the scale of the Razor mod fits the same criteria we used when purchasing our bikes- she can put both feet flat on the ground and have room to shift her weight, she can reach/operate the controls easily, and is able to sit squarely on the seat. She can also manage the weight well enough to push the scooter, and get it on and off the center stand by herself.

    The bike handles very similarly to a regular bicycle and has enough power to pull hills. She was able to hop on and start riding like she’d been riding this bike her whole life.

    I can’t recommend this item enough. It’s been ridden daily in varying degrees of cold winter days and was the #1 hit of Christmas at our house. Set up took about 15 minutes.

    The picture shows a regular bike helmet as protective gear, we are using a real youth sized motorcycle helmet since it offers face protection. Our daughter thinks the real helmet is cooler as she feels like she’s riding a real scooter like we have.

    A BLAST FOR THE ENTIRE FAMILY !, May 4, 2007

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    I bought this for Christmas for my 10 yr old. He rides it every day. It goes quite fast and holds the charge for approx 45 minutes. It goes over dirt and grass equally well and uphill with ease. I have to say that I sneak rides on it myself when he is at school. I am 5ft 10 and can fit on it with no problem. I can see that he will be riding it for years to come! & so will I!
