A lot of my tech friends have these, so here's a PSA for MR:

Before even reading the article, I thought, I bet they're recalling them because the handlebars will fly right off of their mounting if you stare at it for too long. Sure enough:
The CPSC said Razor recalled scooter models E300, E300S, E200 and E200S, all powered by battery-run motors, because the handlebars can accidentally detach from the scooter, causing the rider to lose control and fall.

Haha, that's great!

Thanks

I've never been a fan of scooters (being a skateboarder) but I've seen some amazing things done on the "trick" scooters. Of course the motorized ones are pretty cool.

When I was in 4th grade, I Accidentally cut myself half way around my ankle by a loose bolt on the back of the scooter. Still have the scar.

For the last couple of years, consumer advocates have been telling consumers to stick with genuine Razors, because the knock-offs are notorious for the handle-bar problem. Ironic that it happened anyway.
