This is a long term review of the Razor MX350 Dirt Rocket electric dirt bike.
Having my kids go dirt biking is something that I really enjoy. It’s fun to see the excitement on their face. Dirt biking also teaches kids to overcome fear and obstacles in your path.
I choose to buy a Razor MX 350 Dirt Rocket for my kids to learn to dirt bike on.
Top 5 reasons your kids should start on the Razor MX350
- No Noise
- Easy to operate
- No gears
- No heat
Getting a Razor MX350 is a smart move when it comes to teaching your kids how to dirt bike. The stress level is way lower than a standard ICE dirt bike.
No noise means you can chat with your kid while coaching him what to do. It also makes it less intimidating.
Not having to worry about the dirt bike dying on them is also a really big plus.
No gears allow them to get comfortable with twisting the throttle. If fact once I switch my kids to a CRF50 I always had them start and ride in 2nd gear as 1st gear was too snappy and can result in whiskey throttle.
They can ride the dirt bike in the back yard at any time. This allowed my kids to practice WAY more as Mom and Dad didn’t have to start the bike or worry about neighbors.
- Charge time 4-6 hours
- Top Speed 14 MPH
- Run Time 30 mins
- Lead Acid Battery
The Razor MX350 comes with a twist throttle just like a normal dirt bike but it’s not the entire grip. The top speed on the Razor MX350 Dirt Rocket is 14 MPH. This actually quite fast and because this is an electric dirt bike there is no noise. Make sure that your kids are riding this electric dirt bike in areas that are safe. DO NOT LET THEM RIDE IT IN THE STREET.
The Charge time is 4-6 hours and the plug is easy to operate and uses standard US 110V plug.
The battery life on the Razor MX350 is around 30 minutes. This depends on how fast the rider is going and also the type of terrain. If your child is riding in sandy dirt the RAZOR MX350 battery drains MUCH faster.
How reliable is the Razor MX350 Dirt Rocket?
I was actually surprised by how well the Razor MX350 worked.
Is it as good as a Japanese or European dirt bike?
For me, it’s an OK for reliability as I have had a couple of friends that didn’t have as good as luck as me.
It lasted about 4 years before it gave up the ghost so to speak.
It’s important to keep the battery charged as much as possible. With the lead-acid battery, they need to be constantly charged up.
For the money, it actually is a good buy.
