The Ultimate Childhood Ride of the Early 2000s has Grown Up, Featuring Bright Colors, the Original Design But With Specs to Accommodate the Adult Rider
October 17, 2022 — The original Razor scooter is back – bigger, faster, and electric and this time, all grown up! Over 20 years later, Razor, the foremost trailblazer and innovator in the scooter industry, is going back to its roots by electrifying its very first kick scooter which burst onto the scene and quickly became a household name for kids and parents everywhere. Now sized for adults to ride, the new Razor Icon is available at Razor.com and Target (red only) for $599.99.
The Razor Icon was originally unveiled in early March via a Kickstarter that was fully funded in just a few days and drove huge buzz and anticipation across social media. Available in four different colors- blue, red, pink, and black- the Razor Icon allows adult fans 18+ to experience all the joys of the early 2000s again, but with the ability to cruise around the neighborhood with a grown up style and feel.
The electric scooter offers enhanced e-mobility, featuring an easy hand-carry that allows users to take it on the go or quickly fold for storage at home, in the office or car. Thanks to a powerful 300-watt motor, the electric Razor Icon can go faster and farther, reaching up to 18 mph (29 km/h). Its long-range 36.5V lithium-ion battery pack will take you up to 18 miles on a single charge and on top of that, its 8.5-inch airless tires provide a smoother ride. No need to worry about flats or tire pressure, just get on and ride. Safety is always held to a high standard, and with the LED headlight, and brake-activated taillight, that stands true for the Razor Icon as well. Made from Razor’s quality aircraft grade aluminum with a sleek and modern take on the classic scooter design, the electric Razor Icon cuts no corners with a smooth ride, long distance range, and quality you can trust.
“We were thrilled to see the amazing buzz around Razor Icon when we first unveiled our plans via Kickstarter back in March. It’s incredibly modern and sleek design, and bright color scheme makes it the ultimate ride, while also paying homage to the iconic scooter from the early 2000s. We’re looking to give our fans who rode the original Razor “A” as kids, as well as newer fans, the most joyful ride ever with this launch,” said Ian Desberg, VP Design and Development at Razor.
The Razor Icon electric scooter is part of Razor’s incredible line-up of adult electric scooters which also includes the recently launched EcoSmart Cargo, C35, Jeep® RX200, E300 HD, E Prime III and more.
