I'm so dissapointed that the maxi scooter industry has not yet come up with a 600 or 650 for a short person. I'm 5 feet 1 inch and would love to own a scooter. I have a Honda Shadow because I can reach the ground. My husband has a Suzuki Bergman 650. I rode it once and dropped it on the ground because of the height. That being said I enjoyed the ride while I rode it. Please, please, please someone put a hint in these CEO's ears. Short people want to ride too.

Regarding the seat height, even if you can't flat-foot the scooter, it's still easier to ride than a similarly sized motorcycle because instead of having to hang off to one side and only get one foot down, all you have to do is slide forward at your stops and you'll have both feet down.

I'm 5 feet 2 inches with a inseam of 28 inches and ride a Piaggio BV200 which has a seat height of 31 inches and I do fine. Adding a pair off good boots helped me to the point of not even thinking about it any more. In addition, the seat will crush down a bit after a year of riding.

I decided to go with a scooter because at 56 I don't really feel like throwing my leg over every time. Not having to shift is enjoyable and they're fast off the stop. I've had bigger bikes but none as fun as this one.

Great article. Sadly my motorcycle days may be behind me due to a major hand fracture and not able to use the clutch. This was written in a positive spin which I really appreciate and has lifted my depression. Thanks for all the info. I am very curious.
