This is about the best I can find for less than €400. Honestly, I'm impressed with what they can do for the money. Engineering quality isn't terrible and it's super light and seems like it would last me a year or two of daily commuting and I'm around 85kg. I would say that it's more of a "last mile" scooter, commuting no more than 5-6km per day maximum. These are becoming fully road legal FINALLY this month as the somewhat overly letigous fols in the Dáil pass the bill through towards completion. (The last country in Europe to do so) See link HERE
