Electric, battery-powered vehicles are not very popular for real transportation right now, or at least not yet. However, the technology has found its way for recreational vehicles. Right now, there are many fun-oriented vehicles that are powered by batteries. The somewhat limited power of batteries is not a very big issue in this application, yet the cost-efficient and environment-friendly properties are very beneficial. One example is battery-powered electric motorbikes, like Razor MX350 and Razor MX500. These motorbikes can be very fun for racing or just driving around the park. However, Razor MX500 is a step more expensive than Razor MX350. So, what is the difference between these two motorbikes?
Both Razor MX350 and Razor MX500 have actually been designed in pretty much the same way. Both models come with extremely rugged and durable stainless steel frames. All the parts are metal except for the bodies. The bodies of Razor MX350 and Razor MX500 are both plastics. Well, that’s understandable, considering the affordability of the products. Besides, there is just a very low chance of the body breaking, since these motorbikes don’t go too fast. Both models are equipped with large knobby pneumatic tires. The tires are quite durable, and the knobby texture promotes enhanced traction and durability. Both models have adjustable riser handlebars. The speed is controlled by the twist grip, and the rear brake is hand-operated from the left handle.
Size-wise, Razor MX500 is bigger, and is rated for ages 14 or older, with 175-lbs weight limit. Razor MX350 is rated for ages 13 or older with just 140-lbs weight limit. In addition, Razor MX500 has been equipped with suspension systems on the front and rear. The rear brake is dual disc brakes, ensuring precise and powerful stopping power.
Razor MX500 comes with more batteries and a more powerful motor. While Razor MX350 has a 24V battery set and 250W motor, Razor MX500 has a 36V battery set and 500W motor. As the effect, it is able to reach higher speeds. The battery life is also longer. Plus, the speed is variable-controlled, which means that you can adjust how fast that you can go by reducing or increasing the twist. The maximum speed is 15 mph. Razor MX350’s speed is single speed, which can go up to 14 mph.
Between these two models, Razor MX500 is the best. It has a higher weight limit, better brakes, better speed, longer battery life, and variable speed.
