Our Review Of The Razor EcoSmart Metro Electric Scooter
With its 500w motor, 36 volt electric system, it would be a mistake to underestimate the power of the Razor Ecosmart Metro Electric Scooter. The high torque motor is located just underneath the deck and generally doesn’t in any way sabotage the driving and cruising. Since the motor is of only 500 watts, we’d rather recommend to take this Ecosmart metro scooter on a short trip or semi-long commutes instead of big trips.
The Ecosmart metro scooter is ideal for rides around the neighborhood, shopping trips, going to see friends or just riding around town. If you are looking for an eco-friendly companion that will be able to transport you anywhere, whenever you like, the Ecosmart is a fantastic choice. If you decide to invest you can be sure that your commutes will become easier, more efficient and of course more enjoyable.

Rear Disc Braking System
It’s important to note that the Ecosmart Metro scooter doesn’t have a front braking system. It’s only equipped with a rear brake, however its alternative is just as effective. It’s important to pay attention when riding because of this, since you may find it troublesome to break immediately if something jumps in your way.
Shorter braking distances are definitely not a forte here, but the rear brake is just as responsive and can have you halt within seconds, providing the rider has good reflexes.
The rear break is hand-operated and can be used by the rider whenever needed. This allows for great control over when you need to stop. Luckily, the brake is also located on the adjustable handlebar rake and seat for ultimate convenience. All you need to do is squeeze the right adjustable handlebar rake and you will halt within seconds.
The Razor EcoSmart Metro has big, air-filled 16-inch pneumatic tube tires with reliable, tube tires on spoke wheels. The size is comfortable and ideal for every-day rides. They don’t speed too fast, don’t get caught up on small disturbances on the road, and can handle various terrains with dignity. However, due to the lack of suspension, you may experience quite a few rough rides depending on just how rough the terrain you are on is.
The tires can be compared to standard bicycle tires used on the market. The Ecosmart metro scooter can be classified as a perfect transportation device for around-the-city trips. In essence, the ideal city-cruiser for any scooter enthusiast, or for anyone looking for a faster, quicker way of commuting.

Variable Speed Throttle Control
We can easily classify the Razor Ecosmart as being quiet and powerful. Two very important factors that are vital when riding around and maneuvering around crowds. This is mostly thanks to the high-torque, chain-driven motor and then smooth, 16-inch pneumatic tube tires wheels that cruise flawlessly.

The maximum speed of the Razor Ecosmart can result to about 20 miles per hour, depending on the weight of the rider and the state of the terrain that they are cruising on. Downward slopes will naturally initiate quicker acceleration times, which is why we recommend using a helmet for safety precautions.

Battery & Charging
The natural run-time of the Razor Ecosmart equals to about 40 minutes, and on some occasions, 1 hour. This all depends on the weight of the rider, the incline of the roads they are riding on the the terrain surface in general.
The li-ion battery is placed right underneath the strong bamboo deck, which can sometimes be a problem depending on what kinds of roads you are planning to cruise on. It can easily get caught up around curbs, or when swerving around more rocky areas.
However, this design also ensure quick rides, and a light-weight, quick performance whenever you are outside. Should the battery die before you arrive home, you can always kick-push the Ecosmart metro scooter yourself as a kick scooter. This efficiency is definitely something famous to Razor.
The charging times of the Ecosmart metro scooter usually range from 6.5-8.0 hrs. It is, however, important to note that sometimes the battery charge for the metro scooter needs to be purchase separately. That’s why we encourage potential buyers to consider the cost of both of these purchases before investing, and to carefully read if the charge is included within the bundle they are purchasing.
