This is one of the trickier purchases you could make. It’s called the Razor E325 electric scooter so the obvious assumption anyone would make is that it’s better than the E300 and the E300S. I mean the more expensive one HAS to be better right? We’re here to warn you why buying the Razor E325 electric scooter is a waste of your time and which scooters you should get instead. We’re still going to go in depth and review the E325 just like we would review any other scooter so you can compare it to the others.
Key Features of the Razor E325 Electric Scooter
- Maximum speed of 15 miles per hour.
- Weight capacity of 220 pounds
- Travel distance on a single full charge is roughly 9 miles
- The maximum constant use time is 45 minutes
- 12 hours charge time to full. Even if the charger battery turns green before then keep it plugged it for a full charge.
- Twist throttle transmission
- 55 pound is the scooters weight
- Retractable kickstand.
- Front controlled hand brake
- Rear braking system
- 24v battery system
- 250w battery
- Variable speed control, This feature is not available even though advertised. Do not let yourself get fooled. There is no speed control throttle.

- Free toolkit included for assembly.
- Wide deck for lots of leg space
So it goes an average speed of 15 miles per hour and is powered by a chain driven motor. The motor is a 300w motor that runs fairly quiet, but not any quieter than other razor scooters. The target age group is 12+ and can hold the weight up to a max of 220 pounds. If any of this sounds familiar, that’s everything the E300 and the E300s do. As a matter of fact, at least the E300s has a foam padded seat and it still cost less than the E325. What a joke right?
The battery lets you go around 45 minutes before recharging and takes twelve hours to charge. That’s not great, but it’s normal. The tires are the same exact extra wide 10 inch pneumatic tires. They will require maintenance but so will any inflatable tire. It’s brakes are located in the rear and are operated by the front handlebar hand brake. Some of the smaller razor models have polyurethane wheels which are entirely puncture proof. They also require no maintenance like pneumatic tires do. If that’s something you’re interested in look into the e100, or the e200, however those are targeted closer for kids and go slower.
The con of polyurethane tires is the lower max speeds the scooter gets because it can’t compete with pneumatic tires in that department. If speed outweighs maintenance in you’re opinion the pneumatic is definitely the right choice. Just make sure to frequently check the air pressure and obviously avoid any and all sharp objects. In the case of a flat tire, replace that tire ASAP or your wheel will be next in line. Then who knows what’s the next thing to break off your scooter.
Like most other scooters, the e325 can hold the weight of most adults or up to 220 pounds. This scooter geared more towards adults or stronger teenagers because moving it while it’s powered off is going to be really tough for a child. This hefty scooter weighs in at 55 pounds. The throttle is a standard twist throttle unlike certain scooters which have the safer push button throttle.
The deck is extra wide for good leg space and plenty of room to avoid slips and falls. The handlebar height is not adjustable which can be tedious and annoying to people whose height makes riding this a bit uncomfortable. One of the biggest flaws in the E325 is the lies posted in its description. It’s supposed to have variable throttle control. Which means depending on how far you twist the throttle is how fast the scooter accelerates. IT DOES NOT HAVE THAT.
It operate just like the E300 and E300S and accelerates at one single speed when the throttle is twisted. This is what is supposed to be the game changer. This is what is supposed to differentiate those scooter from the previous models but it’s not installed in this scooter. Razor has admitted themselves it doesn’t have this feature. It’s a specially marked version of the E300 make for certain shops to upsell a more expensive model. Several reviewers have called out razor on this flaw and no response has been issued.

Overall after reviewing this scooter it’s not worth your money. We find that it would be better well spent on used electric scooters for sale like the E300 or better yet the E300s. To add insult to injury, the used model of this is more expensive than new models. What does that mean? It means buyer beware, avoid this model at all cost. We at ScooterScouter give this model an abysmal 1 star out of 5 stars.
