Razor® Pocket Mod™ Bistro Electric Scooter


Okay, when those Razor scooters first came out I thought they were cool. You know, they folded up kinda neat, the chrome finish looked hot - I have to admit, I wanted one. Then the deluge of scooter riding perpetual adolescents (those aged 9 - 45) flooded the sidewalks of New York City, killing any ill-conceived feelings of covetousness I might have had for those wheeling tray tables of pedestrian doom. Well, Razor has come out with an offering which has once again whetted my appetite for one of their products, but this time I'll keep my cynical distance until I can be sure I won't be dodging these things while trying to cross the street. Still, there is something movingly aspirational about the Razor Pocket Mod. I mean, anybody can kick-wheel themselves along using an ordinary scooter, but the Pocket Mod has a 250W/24V motor which can travel as fast as 15 mph and as far as 10 miles on a single 8-hour electric charge. It can accommodate riders of up to 220 lbs. And then, the Vespa-like styling has a European feel that speaks to fantasies of summers spent exploring little Italian villages and reclining under the Tuscan sun.

Ha. Who am I kidding? But still, it's a cute little scooter isn't it?
