Aside from being cheap and environment-friendly, this electric scooter is easy to use.

Razor also designed the EcoSmart Metro electric scooter with the convenience of the rider in mind as it added a well-cushioned seat to this scooter. Thus riders will be able to use this for longer commutes, like going to a neighborhood store or perhaps a short trip to the city.
Riders will have their need for speed satisfied as the scooter can accelerate up to speeds of 20 miles per hour. This is one of the fastest electric scooters around, and Razor made sure that its speed won’t be put to waste as it provided a 500 watt, high performance motor to this scooter. The motor enables the scooter to accelerate quickly, yet it is also quiet when operating so the scooter won’t be bothering the entire neighborhood at all. And even when it speeds up to 20 miles an hour, the scooter can be stopped immediately due to the presence of a rear disc braking system.
This scooter is especially designed for adults, as seen by its maximum weight capacity of 220 pounds. The scooter has standard bicycle sized tires that are also easy to replace. There is a detachable luggage rack that can store various items.

Cons of the Razor Ecosmart Metro Electric Scooter
The Razor Ecosmart Metro Electric scooter will have some difficulty moving on steeper hills, as it could only accelerate up to 10 miles per hour on such type of terrain. Of course, the scenario is different on a flat terrain as the scooter can achieve its maximum speed of 20 miles per hour. When coasting on rolling terrain, the scooter can even hit 25 miles per hour although riders should be careful in accelerating at this pace.
The scooter weighs 67 pounds, which makes it one of the heaviest electric scooters around. The weight may seem to be a small issue to some riders. But for those who would like to put this scooter at the back of their cars for a quick trip to the park or to the countryside, the weight may be a bigger issue than it seems.
Still, the Razor Ecosmart is a scooter anyone would love to have. This electric scooter is a great gift for people who have had enough of driving a gas guzzling vehicle. Its stylish design is another reason why you’d want to have your hands on this scooter. This cheap and environment-friendly electric scooter makes for a good ride for a short commute.
