When I was a child growing up in the beautiful province of British Columbia, the one thing that I wanted the most in life was a bike. My brother had an awesome decked out CCM two wheeler with a chrome rat trap, front head lamp, and the most crazy sounding horn that every kid on my block dreamed of. Meanwhile, all that I had was my old clunky three wheel tricycle. Life was tough.
Today’s young ones have so many more options when it comes to their first mode of transportation. There are ten speed racers and rugged off road mountain bikes just to name a couple. However, if I were someone’s son now, I would want my parents to buy me an electric scooter. Now that sure would be cool. So what is the best gas or best electric scooter for kids?
You do have a choice when it comes to scooting around. There are gas and electric models. For me personally, I would choose electric. After all, us new generation kids need to think about the environment. If we do not start to take our planet seriously… there will be little scooting around for anyone. Most of the major cities are already smogged out. Plus there are also many other advantages to going green.
So what other advantages could there be when deciding on an electric scooter? Well for one thing, you do not need to mix any smelly oil and gas. Which also means that you cannot transport them on their side as all of that expensive fossil fuel would leak out over dad’s brand new SUV. Imagine how a dad would react to something like that?
So what would be the best scooter for kids that my old dad could buy for me? After scouring through all of the ads and articles on the Internet, I have decided to encourage my father to buy me the Razor E100. They also make the models E200 and E300. However, since I am theoretically only nine years old, I will start with the basics. My pop will be pleased at my mature decision as I convince him about all of the money he has saved.
The E100 is featured as a small frame and a big ride. It only weighs 120 pounds and is designed for kids eight years and older. It’s top speed is about 10 miles per hour… just enough to scoot past that nasty pit bull that belongs to Mr. Taylor. Plus can you imagine my friend’s expressions as I coast into the ballpark on my new electric racing red scooter.
When I get a bit older I will be able to trade my E100 in for an E200. It goes a bit faster at 12 miles per hour. The only downside is that it is designed for 13 years old and up. Or what the heck, maybe I could get dad to buy me the ultimate maximum overdrive E300. That definitely would be the very best electric scooter for kids. Here’s hoping.
