Most importantly, electric scooters are a lot of fun, which also can provide that cool factor you’ve been looking for. When it comes to choosing the right seated electric scooter, there are 4 things you must consider, which include safety, performance, comfort, and cost.

Electric scooter with seat – structure
The electric scooter with seat is equipped with a durable frame that is designed to support up to 220 lbs. The scooter’s frame and fork are made of 100% steel, which can withstand rugged conditions. The deck measures 26.2″ in length and 8” in width. The handlebars measure 26.2” in height and 8” in width. The electric scooter is also extremely lightweight, which weighs less than 55 lbs. It also features a retractable spring kickstand.
Razor E300S Speed
The electric scooter with seat is equipped with a high-torque, ultra-quiet 250-watt single-speed chain-driven motor, which has a top speed of 15 mph.

Chain-driven motors offer a quieter and smoother ride, which has been proven to be 99% more efficient than belt-driven motors.
Electric scooter Handling
The only thing more important than speed, is how it handles. The scooter features a convenient accelerator knob, which is located on the right handle grip to provide twist-grip acceleration. The rear brake is located on the left handle, which provides smoother stopping power. The Scooter is also equipped with rear-wheel drive to provide increased traction, along with extra-wide 10” pneumatic tires for increased shock reduction. The retractable kickstand also adds additional support.
Why stand, when you could sit down. The E300S is designed to deliver the most comfortable riding experience, which features an easily removable padded seat.
Oftentimes, a common problem with electric scooter’s is their short battery life, but luckily the Razor E300S delivers up to 40 hours of juice, which depends on the rider’s weight and the weather. The scooter features two 12V sealed lead-acid rechargeable batteries, which can provide 40 minutes of continuous use. The battery system takes up to 12 hours to charge, but the maximum recommended charging time is 24-hours or until the light turns green. The scooter comes equipped with a battery charger.
