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.' and 'Nifty little scooter that zips you around to anywhere within a 2 mile radius and back again. Battery life last from 35 to 40 minutes with the speed dying down in the last 8 minutes or so. Ultra easy controls, brake on the left handle bar with throttle on the right. Very easy to ride, if you can stand up straight you've pretty much got it.'
One reviewer noted that at very close to the stated weight capacity (220 pounds)the ground clearance was not adequate and the motor tended to strike the ground.

Quote: 'My Son has had a "normal" razor scooter for 2 years, which he rides ALL THE TIME! It is amazing that it is still in one piece. He really wanted this one, so I purchased it for his birthday on June 10th. He LOVES all the things it does that the other one doesn't. It is very durable (so far) and he beats it up pretty good. He likes scooters because of the stability of the handles. He doesn't ride skateboards that much, due to confidence. I would highly recommend this scooter to any kid who is ready to move up from a normal scooter. It took him only a little bit to get used to the feel of it and he LOVES it!!! '
