Here are the final 3 photos, they got stuck in my cell phone. It gives you a good idea of the size of these scooters compared to each other. The newer one is about 10" longer overall.

Interesting is that the small one has a storage area under the seat that is large enough to hold a full size helmet. The larger scooter barely has enough room in the storage area for a couple baloney sandwiches!

I notice no license plates. Are they exempt? Do you need a motorcycle license to operate them? You mention that it is a 2 person scooter. What is the weight limit of the two people???

Under Indiana law, any scooter up to 50cc is exempt from needing either a license plate or a motorcycle operators permit. By law you must also be 15 years old (so my daughter is breaking the law). The 3 person scooter has a 330# capacity, the single person scooters about 200#.

I should dig up the Illinios law, we've driven the scooters to the state line, but have not crossed it (yet). Hmmm???

That's not three person and one person, that's 1.26 person and .76 person.
