This scooter is marvelous for the height challenged, I am only 5'3" and this was the only maxi-scooter I could reach the ground on. It is a wonderful touring scooter with plenty of storage space, two helmets will fit under the seat, as well as a carton of beer/coke, it needs to come out of the carton first. I used to live in Sydney and it was easy to ride in traffic, and after moving to the country has the performance to travel effortlessly and excels at country speeds. It is extremely economical, getting 3.6L/100km. I have owned the scooter since new, and am selling as I have upgraded and she has been sitting the garage.
