Try Them Out

The seat height measurement is only half the story. Seat & scooter design also play a part. When I was buying, I sat on two different makes of scooters that supposedly had the same seat height. However, I could notice a significant difference in my comfort level sitting on the two different scooters. The one I didn't like had a seat that tilted back very slightly and also had a knob on the front.

So visit a couple of different scooter dealers and sit on different brands. Test drive them if you can. Make sure you feel comfortable.

I can tell you, though, that I feel very comfortable on my 125cc scooter even though I can only stand on tip toe/ball of foot (not flat foot) when straddling it at a stop. I drive a Genuine Buddy.

This sounds pretty short to me. There are numerous variations of this type around from different manufacturers.

Battery Tender Junior in package

A battery tender like the Battery Tender Jr. can make all the difference in whether your scooter will start right up each spring, after being stored for months.

Just about every scooter owner needs to have a battery tender, sometimes called a trickle charger. Unless you are lucky enough to live in a climate where you can ride all year long, chances are your scooter will be put on ice, figuratively-speaking, for at least a couple months every winter.

One of the key steps in winterizing a scooter is to protect your battery from draining during its "rest" period. This can – and will – happen if you leave your battery sitting untended in your cold scooter over the winter, even if it's in a garage or shed.
