pallmer Not sure why they dropped the base X7. Though you’re better off with the X7 Pro and get quite a bit more range for just a bit more price-wise.
Scooters are definitely not as stable as bikes and other two-wheeled vehicles. You nailed it with rake + trail, a consequence of tiny tires, compact sizes, and trying to maximize standing space.
I think the Boosted Rev. nailed the geometry as best they could for dimensions, but man there isn’t much standing space on that deck b/c of handlebar intrusion.
Some the. big scooters are quite a bit better, but the tiny tires still require some getting used to and also accepting that a scooters are never going to be as forgiving as the other two-wheeled transportation modes.
