I love the motorcycle look of this scoot, and if I was younger, it's what I would want. Unfortunately it kind of defeats the purpose of riding a scooter for me...bad knees and getting older makes throwing my leg over much more difficult than just stepping through. However, I like it! This will probably get more young people into riding scooters and even middle aged and older folks who think scooters just don't look macho! I say good on it!
