I received the Mongoose MGX 250 24 Volt Battery Powered Ride On free in exchange for providing an open and honest review of the product. My family received this little rechargeable electric motorbike almost two weeks ago. Based on the maximum weight capacity of 150 pounds, three out of four of us were able to try it out. Both my nine and twelve year old boys tried it out as did I (mom). I must say, even though this bike says that it is for ages 8 plus, my nine year old definitely fit on it the most comfortably out of the three of us. My older son and I are both around 5'4" and our knees come up quite high on it. My younger son is about 4'7" and he fits on it perfectly. He loves it as do some of his little buddies. My son took a few minutes to get used to the bike so being able to lock it into 5 mph is very helpful to start. He rides wearing a helmet and feels like he is on a little motorcycle. We have since adjusted the bike to the 10 mph setting as he is very comfortable with it now. The bike itself is rather lightweight, very easy to flip to the on position and just requires the turn of the right handle to keep it going. The charge really seems to last a while. I think my son and his friends have used it for about an hour at a time. I also like the indicator letting you know if the motorbike needs to be charged. We charge it for about 12 hours or so after a good use and it is definitely ready to go. The bike was also very easy to assemble. Only the handlebars needed to be attached and all necessary tools were included in the box. The cables were already connected for the brakes and throttle. The bike was also packed very well for shipping. I would definitely recommend this little motorbike for kids from about eight to ten. Lots of fun!
