When doing research for our electric scooters for commuters guide, we came across the Vokul Hudora RX-205. It seemed like a great commuting option, so we decided to do a bit more research and write up a quick review. If you are looking for a transportation method for your commute but don’t want to spend the money on an electric scooter, this might be a great option. It is also great for commuting around campus or anywhere else really – it seems like the best kick scooter for adults out there right now. Read on to find out why!
RX-205 or VK-205?
The Vokul Hudora RX-205 is the same as the Hudora VK-205. Vokul is the actual manufacturer (it’s the name you’ll see on the box). We weren’t able to tell the difference between the names, but you might find it referenced as both. The wheels say RX-205 on them though, so that is what we’re sticking with.
Some quick stats before we get into what we thought of this kick scooter: It weighs just under 9 pounds and is made from aircraft grade aluminum. The 8″ plastic (urethane) wheels are a great, and overall it has a really high build quality. It can be folded just like the Razor kick scooters you’ve seen before, and even comes with a carrying strap. The Hudora RX-205 has a deck that is 14 inches long and 4.5 inches wide. Its handlebar is adjustable between about 30 inches and 30 inches tall (from the deck, which is about 4 inches off the ground).
Does all this make a good scooter though? We definitely think so. There are a few things that we think are important for a good kick scooter for adults.
Comfortable, Smooth Ride
The Hudora RX-205 rides very smooth, especially compared to any scooter with smaller wheels you may have tried out. The large, relatively soft wheels make it great for handling rough roads or dirt paths. I wouldn’t want to take it through grass or anything too crazy, but it can definitely handle the worst your sidewalks or city streets have to offer. The deck sits about 4 inches off the ground. This isn’t too high to be awkward or hard to balance, but it does let you not worry about scraping the bottom of the deck on anything. The Hudora RX-205 is probably one of the most smooth, comfortable to ride scooters for adults that you can find.
A Stylish Scooter?
There aren’t any kick scooters out there that could be accurately described as stylish or trendy. The Hudora RX-205 makes a good attempt though! It is similar in overall design to the popular Razor kick scooters that were everywhere 20 years ago. However, they did some work to make it look appropriate for adults and college students. Its sleek finish, larger wheels, and carrying strap definitely make it so you won’t be embarrassed to take this up to your office with you.
Vokul Hudora RX-205 Review
The best part of this adult kick scooter is that you aren’t really making any compromises in quality or style, but it still comes at a great price. The RX-205 has an MSRP of $190, but you can find it for under $100 usually (at time of writing, it is $89.90 on Amazon). The Hudora RX-205:
- rides smooth and comfortable
- folds and is easy to carry
- stylish (for a kick scooter)
- great price
If you are looking for a cheap way to get around campus or take over your commute, and you don’t want to spend the money on an electric transportation device, then you really can’t go wrong with this scooter.
