This scooter comes with a powerful, quiet motor estimated at 250 watts that can hit the amazing speed of 15mph. You can ride this scooter for about 40 minutes before the battery turns out empty. After that, the battery needs to be recharged for 12 hours.

This is one of the best electric scooters for teens 13-year-old or older and it weighs less than 220 lbs. It comes with a twist throttle transmission which makes it easy to use. You are going to be able to hit different gears with the twist grip throttle which can make the scooter a joy to ride for just about anyone.


The large deck and wide 10-inch tires make the ride on this Razor electric scooter smooth and comfortable. The breaks for this scooter are located on the rear and they are enabled with the handlebar handbrake.

This scooter is not foldable so I wouldn't recommend it for someone who needs a scooter that is supposed to be carried around, like for school. Of course, if the battery dies and you don't want to carry it, you can always ride it like a classic kick scooter.

Pros

You are going to get a very solid and sturdy frame that comes with a variety of colors to choose for your teenager's personal style.

Cons

This is not the ideal portable scooter to take on the go simply because of its weight.


Xprit Electric Scooter

If you don't want to give a fortune for a fast electric scooter for teenagers than this model is a great choice for you. This scooter comes in black color and it has a  modern design. It is a recommended motorized scooter for 15-year old teens but you have to be aware that the weight capacity is maxed at 200lbs.

The scooter is made from aluminum so it's durable and strong. The IP55 certification makes sure that the scooter can survive rain or other wet conditions since it means it is drizzle-resistant. The youth motorized scooter is equipped with a 250w motor which results in 12.4 mph. Your teenager can ride it for around 8-13 miles, depending on many conditions and once the battery is empty, it has to be plugged in around 5 hours.


The scooter comes with 3 gears so your teen can adjust it to the morning traffic which is a great feature. When your teenagers reaches his destination, he can fold the scooter and carry it with him since it is only 25lbs.

You don't have to worry about night rides because the motorized scooter for teens comes with a big LED headlight in the front. Also, there is a small LCD screen which shows the battery condition and the time he can ride on the scooter before he has to charge the battery.

Pros

I would say the main advantage of this scooter is the affordable price which gives you great performance and mileage.

Cons

The handlebars have low-quality handles.


Hiboy MAX Electric Scooter

This powerful electric scooter for teenagers comes with high performance and strong power to ensure quality rides for anyone's needs. This is a very lightweight scooter with only 25 lbs. That makes it perfect for going to school or the gym.

The easy to fold and carry design makes it very portable. This scooter adapts to all-terrain conditions like asphalt or lawn because of the rubber wheels and the strong aluminum frame. You can expect to get up to 17 miles per single charge because it comes with the long-lasting lithium battery. The battery needs about to 3 hours to get ready for your teenager's next adventure. The battery has the overcharging protection against overcurrent and high temperatures which can damage and shorten the batteries life.


Cool light up LED effect for riding in the dark makes this ride even safer and more fun. The Bluetooth speakers can be connected with the phone and play continuously for 72 hours which is great for any teenager who likes music.

The anti-slip pedal and deck make sure that no accidents will happen. The USB power bank can be removed and replaced and great for any chance of an empty phone battery.

Pros

The Bluetooth speakers make a great feature which most teenagers adore. The folding mechanism makes this scooter portable and easy to transport and store anywhere.

Cons

This scooter is a bit expensive than the others with similar features.

Best Electric Scooters For Adults in 2020

Razor E200 Electric Scooter

This motorized scooter from Razor is made for teenagers above 13 years of age. Razor E200 electric scooter is started with a speed throttle with which you can also change speed. Very quickly, your teenager can achieve speeds up to 12 mph.

Specially Made For Teenagers

Not only quick, but also very quiet because of the chain-driven high torque motor.  The speed is not too fast but it is still fast enough for a teenager that wants an adventure and that is why it is a recommended for 14-year or older teens.

The E200 electric scooter has hand operated rear brakes which it is easy to use and learn. The scooter weighs 40 pounds, so it can't be quite fitted in the category. This vehicle combines good price, performance, and safety.

This scooter comes in green and white color. The ride can last up to 40 minutes for anyone who weighs up to 165 lbs. There is also a seated version available with the padded seat and a seat post that can be removed.

Pros

It is relatively light and still sturdy to carry the rider. For instance, if the battery dies mid-ride it isn’t hard to carry the scooter back to the charging point.

Cons

The battery takes up to 12 hours to charge the scooter completely giving it a 40-minute continuous run. This is relatively slow compared to other motorized scooters in this range.


Razor E125 Electric Scooter

This is a great electric scooter for kids and teens alike, as it is recommended for rider’s age 8 or older. The real limit is the weight, so the rider needs to weigh less than 120 lbs. Your child can enjoy 40 minutes of the enjoyable ride with the top speed of 10 miles per hour.

This electric scooter for teenagers comes in black, navy blue or pink color so you can choose between a unisex, girls or boys option. This particular scooter comes in pink color and it has a modern design so I would recommend it for a teenager girl.

This scooter is also very light, and it weighs 25.2 lbs which is really little compared to some more expensive models.

The handlebar is foldable for easy storage and transport. In addition, the handlebar is adjustable for growing kids and teens. Charge cycle of the battery that runs a chain driven motor is 12 hours.

The front brake is hand operated which means it is easy to learn and use. Another safety feature is the kick off which is required to engage the motor. This way, there are no accidental takeoffs. The twist grip throttle will ensure smooth and easy acceleration along with the 8-inch pneumatic tires.

This is the last electric scooter for teens on this list and it is also made by Razor. 

Pros

The motor is capable of hitting max speeds of 10 miles per hour which isn't much, but it is safe for your teenager.

Cons

The wheels are small so they can't handle all terrains.


Conclusion

An electric scooter is a great gift. Don't forget to buy a helmet and some safety equipment, too. Choose from a variety of colors for him/her and make sure to check the weight limit maybe you can ride it as well. Modern technology makes motorized scooters for a teenager even cooler as they can have a blast with Bluetooth speakers and you can keep track of their rides through mobile apps.
