I'd check their legality in every country you intend to use it before buying one. In Australia they're quite illegal to use on a public street. Better bet is a sub-200W electric scooter.

These are not intended for street use. If I wanted a battery I would have posted one with a battery thanks.

Problem with these Razor EcoSmart Metro Electric Scooter is the battery life.
40 minutes is not long enough, but we could use them as bona fide mobility scooters and ride indoors, so there's that. The one posted above meets weight restrictions for air travel, likewise the 49cc one, but the gas one would have to be shipped in the original unopened box, whereas the battery one we could actually ride out onto the tarmac; at least last year according the the airlines.
The idea here is to save al the walking without looking like a geriatric gimp, while still reaping the bennies of old age lol.

We had one on Chiara Stella in NZ and a trip to the shops was much easier.

What were you intending to use it for anyhow?

AHahaha, can you see my wife and I motoring along the quay in Marseilles with this beast???
We're heading more towards the portable, fold it and put it (them) in the trunk of a rental car, or in the quarter berth till we reach the beach. I believe that puppy would weigh too much to be lifted easily; but yea, what a gas!!
