Hey guys My name is Ben and since my car has been such a pain in the city I am thinking its time to get a scooter.
This is my situation.
I travel about 5 miles (7kms) to work and back each day.
I do a few trips around the 15-20 mile range (thats there and back, like max 20mile total distance).
Very few hills but the road surface is pretty average at best, plenty of cracks and some bits where the railways go through the road too.
I am 6ft, 5in tall or about 199cm. (I need something with tall handle bars so I am not like having to hunch over all the time).
My weight is 120-125kg so like 250-260 pounds. (depending on the BBQ season lol)
I also live in New Zealand where 1000USD = about $1800 New Zealand so price is a bit of an issue.
So I probably wouldn’t want to spend more than 1500-1800 USD. (cheaper would be better)
The speed limit in town in my country is 50KPH or around 30mph so ideally I would like something that could hit that
30mph speed so I can cruise in traffic if needed.
Oh and I don’t ride off road. so only paved roads.
Ok guys so what do you think?
