After one month the back wheel has stopped turning. It is completely seized up. The scooter powers up but the motor doesn’t turn the wheel. In fact the back wheel doesn’t turn at all. It was underpowered from the get go but now it just doesn’t work.
When I got this my first thought was to give it to my oldest son. But wasn't sure if it would work well because of his height and weight. So after my husband put it together he got on it to try it out and it worked well. He is almost 6ft and 150lbs. The only thing it did was slow it down. But other than it being a little slower, my son rides it almost every day. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
I bought two of these scooters during the Black Friday sale. One scooter arrived with no instructions or charger included in the box. When I finally found a way to charge it, the scooter would not run. Upon returning it, Target would not allow me to exchange for another one (there was one available in store for the non-Black Friday sale price). Rather, I was given a gift card for the sale price.
The second scooter I bought died after only three rides, so I am about to return asap.
Please stay away from this product. I suggest shelling out a few more bucks for a better product like Swagtron.
My kids love this Viro electric scooter. It was very good easy to put together. Minimal assembly. Very easy to ride. They just wish the charge lasted a little longer. Other than that it was a great purchase. Would definitely get another in the future. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Our 8-year old daughter was disappointed because the scooter for a few reasons. Most noticeably it doesn’t come close to the advertised speed of of 10 mph. The actual speed was closer to 3-4 mph. It might hit 10 mph down hill because the tires are hard rubber and really wide.
The weight of the Viro is 29 lbs which is heavy compared to similarly priced models. The battery is so big and heavy that the scooter scrapes around every corner.
On a positive note the brakes do work well, it was easy to assemble, & it looks great. I might recommend this model for a 6-year old but it is woefully slow for an 8-year old.
Target was great with returning the scooter and we got a different brand which is similarly priced and way nicer in every way.
They get 1 star because you cant give them "0" stars. Bought 2 for my kids for Christmas this year and they are both junk. They will both be going back on 12/27 as soon as the store opens. My son ways 60 pounds and they won't hardly even pull him. They are fully charged and still no power. I would not purchase these scooters at ANY price, they will not be ridden. Kids were very disappointed for Christmas. Not what I had planned. ******* And these reason you are not seeing more of these reviews is you have to create an account to leave the review. I almost didn't leave the review because I have already wasted too much time on them.
With my kids growing up, many of their friends have owned an electric scooter and they have always wanted one like their peers. When I got this and started unboxing it, I knew how excited they would be as this scooter is so fun and it is very well built. Putting it together was very easy, I placed the handle bar into the main frame, and secured it nice and tight. It came with a slight charge already, and I was able to turn it on and give it a quick test before the kids got home from school. It is made of a nice quality material, as this electric scooter is not light and has a nice weight to it from the board area. The handle bar is also nicely made with a thicker material than I was expecting, which is nice because it helps my child have better grip and is more secure on this scooter. I charged it up for them, and surprised them while they were outside, and they were so excited to ride it around our neighborhood. They quickly drew a lot of attention from neighborhood kids, as they wanted to also try it out and ride it. It says it goes up to 10 miles an hour which I believe, as the go speed on this is nice and the speed is consistent as well. I like to go jogging, and now my kids like to ride beside me using this electric scooter which is nice and gives us more time to enjoy each other's company. The brakes work great as well, and slow down when needed and it slows down easily to a halt. I like the included lights on the foot board, as I like knowing that cars will be able to see this scooter easily with the lights shining. I have to also mention, the included kickstand is very appreciated as it helps keep the scooter in great condition. I recommend this scooter, it is great for my 8 and 10 year olds as this is easily their new favorite toy and they get plenty of riding time out of it.

My sons who's 10 years old is so smitten by this electric scooter by Viro rides and love it as well ! Not only does it keep him happy but it's also quite sturdy and to be frank very safe and easy to ride. The brake once squeezed in (just like a bike brake) responds instantly and the button on the right handle to speed it up does not go lightening fast but at a safe and steady speed. My son mainly uses his scooter in the evening hours when we walk our dog and the safety lights on this scooter are ultra bright and visible from far distances. When we first received our scooter I charged it an entire 8 hours and my son used it 3x for approximately 70 minutes before this scooter began finally lost battery. From a parents point of view the battery life is pretty awesome on a full charge, it lasted a lot longer than I expected it would before having to recharge it. Overall this is most definitely a really fun and safe electric scooter for kids to ride wether experienced or not I found it user friendly. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
