What is the best scooter for short rider (5')? I sat on the Oxygen Lepton and it felt pretty good. I was wondering about all the others (e-max, chinese scooters....). If anyone could give me seat heights on any of these and on the oxygen Lepton for comparison, that would be great. I haven't been able to find this info online. I would really like something that goes over 35 mph, Atlanta traffic is horrible!

leefa,
Welcome to the V is for Voltage Community.
Others will probably provide better more detail answers. I don't believe when you limit your selection to 35 mph, there aren't that many options .
What price range are you looking for, is a good place to start? Atlanta is fairly flat isn't it? What will you mainly use it for? Other than maybe looks, why not a E Bike?
I don't think your height will be a problem, most E Scooters from China were built for there smaller local riders.
Our new V is for Voltage Forums Community Hand Books is a good place to start.
Also check out EV Club Of The South

Re: What is the best scooter for short rider (5')?

where I will be riding (midtown) is very flat. but people drive very fast! I will use it for "scooting" around town a couple of times a week. Looks happen to be VERY important to me. I would like to pay less than $2500, but would consider more for the "perfect" scooter :) As for the chinese scooters, I've read they aren't as reliable as some of the others, I am a little wary about them. I would consider one though.

thanks for the quick response!

That helps, I'm sure others will chime in on this. The Over 35mph will be the difficult part. You might want to get on the Z 20 waiting list, just in case they finally keep there promise.

About to make its appearance in the US Market by this Spring 2007, EVTAMERICA is proud to present the Z-20, the State of the Art two-wheeled All Electric Vehicle. This electric motorcycle manufactured by EVTAMERICA is powered by a 2000-watt 48-volt hub motor capable of allowing it to reach a speed of approximately 45 miles per hour (equivalent to 75 kilometers per hour)*. Translating experience into functional innovations, the Z-20 is arguably the most remarkable electric vehicle expected to hit the market this year 2007. The 48-volt 2000-watt hub motor is significantly more powerful than the 48-volt 1500-watt hub motor used in our motor-driven cycles therefore providing the Z-20 with the necessary torque to tackle steeper inclines and carry more weight. The hub motor has over 90% efficiency rating.

Currently there is no EVTAmerica Z-20 E Scooter Collaborative Hand Books aviable here yet, suggest you read some of these to get up to speed.
