Advantages of Razor RX200
The RX200 is a mid range scooter for older children, designed for off-road use. It sits in between the E100 and E300 models in Razor’s extensive range. It was our top choice for Off-road Scooter in our recent review of the best electric scooters for kids.
The RX200 has several advantages over the E300:
Off-road knobby tires – provide more grip on uneven surfaces and for off-road riding
Revised gear ratio – produces higher torque to help ride more easily up slopes and rough ground
Heavy duty alloy wheels – more rugged so should last longer if riding off-road frequently
Unique rear disc brakes – provide better drifting and stopping power.
Lower top speed (12 mph vs 15 mph) – makes it less scary/risky for kids and younger teens, especially off-road when the trail may not be well defined.
Advantages of Razor E300
The Razor E300 won our Ultimate Choice award in a recent review of the best electric scooters for kids. Note: The Razor E300S is identical, except that it has a (removable) seat which is good for those who prefer to sit.
The E300 is a larger, faster scooter for teens or adults, and maybe younger teens who want more of an adrenaline rush. It has quite a few advantages over the RX200:
- Faster top speed (15 mph vs 12 mph) and quicker acceleration for extra thrills.
- Larger frame and more powerful motor – can cope with a much heavier rider (up to 220 lbs) which makes the E300 ideal for most youths and many adults.
- Larger tires – for more comfort and stability.
- Four color options (the RX200 only comes in green) – more chance of choosing your ideal color.
Razor RX200 vs E300
Both these scooters are popular models from Razor and the MSRP (Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price) is the same. They are quite similar in size and share some of the same features. So which is the best?
In our view the answer depends partly on whether you need a scooter that copes well on most surfaces (E300) or one that is designed especially for off-road use (RX200).
However, there is also a big difference in the maximum weight that each scooter supports. With a limit of 154 pounds, the RX200 is aimed at kids aged 10 to around the mid teens. If they prefer a good all rounder instead, the Razor E200 is a better choice – it is very similar to the RX200, but without its off-road specific features.
Heavier people will need to choose the E300 with its much higher limit of 220 pounds – enough to cope with the weight of almost all teens and many adults. The higher top speed is also better suited to older riders.
