There's another scooter out there that I use and it's dirt cheap. The Razor electric 200-watt does a great job of getting me around Oshkosh on Saturday and Sunday before the show starts.
It has about a six to eight-mile practical range (they say eight miles or about 45 minutes of run time), eight-inch pneumatic tires, a six- to eight-hour or so recharge. It weighs about 40 pounds, has a top speed of about 10 MPH (they say about 12) and can climb a five percent grade with relative ease.
I got one when they had a sale at Sports Authority for about $90, but you can buy them at Pep Boys all day long for about $120. They make a 100-watt model for a little less and a 300-watt for a little more. The 300-watt would do an even better job, but it weighs a little more and has 10-inch tires. Check them out.
