It was easy to put together, just the handlebars and front wheel had to be assembled. After charging up it ran perfectly. Looks great, it's quiet and pretty quick. My 7 year old is a perfect size for it. She was a little cautious of the speed at first, but she got used to it quickly. She loves riding it ! As a motorcyclist myself, I recommend getting a real motorcycle type helmet instead of just a bicycle one. Youth full face dirt bike type ones can be found online for $20. They will provide face and head protection in the event of a fall.
