There are a lot of scooters out there for kids, but adults like to have fun too, don’t they? It’s not fair that the most fun things in life are designed for kids, leaving the adult with all of the, um, well, the adult-y stuff.
And then, the scooters that you will find that ARE designed for adults are going to be for functionality only, it seems. They are going to be scooters that are made as a form of transportation so you can get to your job on time and be all responsible and whatnot.
But what fun is that?
Most of the time when you get a scooter, you can only get one that is specially designed for kids only, or for adults only – but hardly ever do you get both.
Well, now you can with the Razor E300! The Razor E300 is quite an upgrade from Razor’s previously well-known scooter, the Razor 200. And this one is capable of delivering more fun to more people now!
You might be wondering how, and we are going to answer that question, given enough time.
If you have found this review article, then you might already be considering buying the Razor E300. And if you aren’t, then there is a good chance that you will be by the time we get to the end!
We are going to start out by telling you all about the key features of this scooter. You know, the things that make it better than all the rest of the scooters out there. Then, we are going to go through all of the pros and cons.
By the end, we are sure that you will know everything that you could possibly need to know about this electric scooter before deciding to buy it.
So, let’s take a look at those key features, shall we?
The key features are a really important part of this article, and here’s why –
These are going to be the things about the Razor E300 that make it better than its older model, the E200. Unlike in many review articles you will find, the key features that are listed here are actual improvements that have been made to the product by the Razor company themselves.
So when we say that they are key features, we mean it.
Super Sized Deck And Frame
The first thing on our list of key features is the super-sized deck and frame. The E200 did have a large deck, but the E300 has a super-sized deck, perfect for people of all ages and sizes!
This is one of the main features of this Razor model that makes it perfect for kids and adults alike! Remember when we were talking about how this electric scooter was one that was meant for both kids and adults. Well, this is the reason why!
A super-sized deck allows for plenty of spacious foot room so even those with the biggest of feet can ride comfortably on the Razor E300.
The taller frame also makes for a more comfortable ride by making it easier for taller people to reach the handlebars.
Extra Wide 11-Inch Pneumatic Tires
Another feature that changed from the E200 to the E300 is the size of the tires. The Razor E300 has 11-inch pneumatic tires, whereas the E200 only had 9-inch tires.
And, the tires on the Razor E300 are also extra wide. The bigger sized tires really increase the number of different types of terrain that the electric scooter can handle, so you can tackle more distance in less time.
The bigger tires also help to support more weight, so every family member can take a turn on the sweet new scooter!
Longer Play Time
Most scooters only give the rider a maximum of 40 solid minutes of riding time – including the E200 edition. But the Razor E300 had been improved to give you an extra 5 minutes of battery life.
Of course, the exact riding time is all going to depend on a variety of factors such as speed, weight, current battery charge, and the type of incline you are on.
5 extra minutes of running time might not be much, but when added with all of the other great new features of this type of electric scooter, it’s a pretty awesome feature to have.
But we are missing the best part! Not only can the Razor E300 hold more weight and support more people with the super-sized deck and bigger tires, but it can also reach faster speeds!
The Razor E200 could only get up to 12 miles per hour. But the Razor E300 can climb up to 15 miles per hour! It can do this, even with the extra weight and longer battery life. That’s pretty impressing, and quite an improvement.
We can thank the awesome electric motor for these great new qualities. We will discuss everything that this motor can do when we get down to the pros section.

And what would you know, the pros are next! You might be wondering what else the Razor E300 could have to offer you after having already read the key features. You might think – how could there possibly be more great things about this bike?
But actually, there is quite a bit more that we have to share with you. Allow us to do just that.
Before, we mentioned that the motor has a lot more great qualities about it. So let’s start there.
The motor in the Razor E300 is a high-torque, chain-driven motor. So what does that mean for you?
Having a high-torque means that this electric scooter won’t stall out on you, even if you are stopped for a long period of time with the motor still running. Being chain-driven mean that you are guaranteed to have a quiet ride on your scooter.
It’s not fun to have to listen to a loud engine, but on this type of scooter, you won’t have to worry about that. The electric motors that they install in the scooters are nice and quiet. They are also responsible for getting the scooter up to 15 miles per hour, which we discussed before.
But enough talk about the engine. There is so much more important information to cover! So what else does the Razor E300 have?
This electric scooter has a twist grip throttle that makes for fast and easy acceleration. It also has a hand-operated rear brake so you can make fast and easy stops as well. With these two features, you will literally have all of the power of the scooter right at your fingertips!. How neat!
We are going to make a list of all of the awesome things about the Razor E300, but first, let’s go back over all of the key features one last time so we don’t forget anything.
First of all, all of the key features are features about the scooter that have improved from the E200 version to the E300. So these are the things that really make this electric scooter stand out.
The type of motor, the twist-grip throttle, and the hand-operated rear brake are all great qualities, but they are not uncommon for electric scooters to have.
But having a super-size deck and frame, as well as extra-wide 11-inch pneumatic tires? Those qualities are going to be hard to find on any other scooter out there. And it’s the same with having a longer battery life and being able to reach up to 15 miles per hour.
Alight, let’s sum it all up.
- Super-sized deck and frame supports kids, teens, and adults alike
- Extra-wide 11-inch pneumatic tires provide extra support and a smoother ride
- Longer battery life (about 45 minutes) provides for more fun time on the scooter
- Can reach speeds up to 15 miles per hour
- High-torque chain-driven motor provides a fast, quiet, and safe ride
- Twist-throttle acceleration and hand-operated rear brake provide complete riding control
That’s a pretty big list of pros if you ask us! But how does it do against the cons? Are there any bad qualities about the Razor E300? Find out by reading on to the cons section.
We are nearing the end of this review article now, but there are still a few more things you should consider.
This electric scooter has so many great qualities to it that we have had to really think hard in order to come up with something to put into this cons section.
And still yet, we believe that the things that we came up with to put here really shouldn’t even belong here. You will know why in a moment.
One negative thing that we came up with is that this scooter is not meant for really young kids. The shorter the child, the harder it is going to be for them to reach the handlebars and be able to ride comfortably.
But, this is a price that you – literally – pay for getting a scooter that can provide fun for adults too. If you want a scooter that is just for kids, there are others out there. But you won’t have as much fun trying to ride those.
The Razor E300 is a great upgrade if your child has outgrown their previous electric scooter though.
Another “con” that we thought up is that this scooter doesn’t come with a seat. Now, most recreational scooters don’t come with a seat anyway, and no one ever complained because the scooter is only being ridden for fun.
But many adult scooters do come with a seat because they are used for traveling. We don’t think having a seat on a scooter is super important, but if it is for you, you might want to look at buying a different scooter.
That pretty much covers all of the cons that we have for the Razor E300. So let’s get all of that into a list so you can see it better.
- Not ideal for young children too short for the handlebars
- Does not come with a seat
And that concludes our cons section!
