How tall are you? A 150 scooter is a little smaller than a 250 scooter. I would ask, that you take a pic of yourself on your scooter, to help me decide on buying a 150. Any help would be appreciated. I see the Roketa 75 150T scooter, it looks alright, but looking at a picture with no body in it, well it makes it hard to judge the size of it. I would hate to order a scooter that is to small for me.
I'm 6 feet tall, and kind of heavy, and I ride with a passenger all the time on my scooter. It is a sunny style body, so has a small seat, but it works for us. It's really up to the rider and how you feel about the feel of it.
cycle-ergo.com/ -- they have some scooters. I have an LX150, same size as the 50, and they show that I can flat foot with my 5'8" / 30" inseam. ...yeah... I can flat foot wearing my cowboy boots, not quite wearing penny loafers.
Go on Craig's List, look at scooters, see what scooters you can fit.

I had the same concerns before purchasing my scoot three and a half years ago. At 5' 11" and 210 lbs, I didn't want to look like John Wayne riding a pony. I found the following video helpful.....and actually ended up buying from the people who produced it.
That one in your picture is about as big as I have seen in a 150. The 250 Rocketa style is about the same size as the 150. I think they have pretty much the same frame. If you are over 6 feet tall, you might like a CFmoto250, a Honda Helix 250. The CFmoto Fashion and Honda Helix 250's have nice leg room but they are an older style. For longer rides, I find the CF/Helix style to be WAY more comfortable than the Rocketa style, but the Rocketa style is more maneuverable and sporty. I have not tried a Grand Dink or a Burgman 400+ so I can't speak on those.
On the CF/Helix you can stretch your feet out far forward. I could not do that on a Rocketa style 150 or 250.

I'm 5'10", and I cannot sit flat footed on my 16" wheeled 150cc scooter both feet on toes unless I lean (which I don't do). And the dual rear shocks are adjustable, so you can raise it a bit, though that also stiffens the suspension. There is not a ton of floor space, due to the front storage box, so no streching the legs forward.
