Hi all, I'd kind of like to buy an electric scooter. It would just be for basic commuting from my home to certain places. I'm only 16 and just have a basic job on Saturdays so I don't want to get a car or something and have all those added expenses that I couldn't even afford. I live in a pretty small town, so the farthest I would need to go at a time is 2 or 3 miles (one way). I don't want a gas scooter because they're noisy, smell bad, heavier, more complicated, you have to buy (and sometimes mix) your own gas, etc. I went around town today and looked at a few electric scooters. One that I liked was the Quazar, which I might be able to get at the store for $199 (though price isn't really an issue, anything in the 200 to 400 range is cool), but my friend said I'd probably only get up to 10 miles an hour a lot of the time (its max is 15) so it wouldn't be that good. I found a couple online that look good: this one and this one. So what do you guys think? Are you familiar with any of those models, or electric scooters in general? Are they really as useful as they look? The only things I really "need" in the scooter (meaning I wouldn't buy it if it didn't have them) are at least 15 to 20 mph, at least 6 to 8 miles on a full charge, and a comfortable seat. Thanks for any input.
