    Now, if all these scooters with the lowest ride heights still make you uncomfortable, there are a couple more options to try out. One, is once you have zeroed in on one of the scooters and bought it, you can take it to a shop that does seat upholstery and cut away a bit of foam from the seat. This will lower the seat further.

    Another idea is, while stopping, be it at signals, while commuting or anywhere for that matter, you could sit a little forward, towards the edge of the seat, which will help you reach the ground. This method is not very advisable though.
