Scooters with a seat, also known as gas powered mopeds, are typically operated by adults. This trend occurs due to the fact that most mopeds go too fast for pre-teens and children to safely operate. Nevertheless, children’s mopeds do exist, and as one can imagine, these cheap scooter models do not go as fast as adult gas powered mopeds.

Unfortunately, the aforementioned scooter with a seat appears to be the only moped on the market that is specifically designed for 10 year olds. Now that we know a bit more about which motor scooter models exist, let’s take a look at a few cheap pre-teen e mopeds from Razor.
The Pocket Mod from Razor contains a 24V lead acid battery and a 250W motor. Collectively, these two components generate a max speed of 15 mph.

- Max rider weight of 170 lbs
- 12” wheels
- 40 minute run time
- 10 mile range
- Weighs 50.5 lbs
Asking price for the purple Pocket Mod is currently $300.

Weighing in at 76.35 lbs, the Pocket Mod Bellezza is quite a bit beefier than the other kids mopeds from Razor. This extra poundage appears to be related to the inclusion of a 36V lead acid battery and a 500W motor. Other traits are listed hereafter.
