    Haha, Welcome to the world of Confusion (Just kidding). I have been through this.

    Jupiter or Wego is best bet IMO. My neighbour bought the Jupiter for his wife very recently and she is utterly comfortable with its handling and riding. She is a bit short (infact shorter than your better-half). She tip-toes at times. But in your case, it should be ok.

    Currently Jupiter is very good. I personally dont like the new look of the Ray.

    I bought RayZ last year for my wife, but I only riding as she yet to learn riding. So based on my experience, the engine and handling is good, foot space is less (if at all if you keep any luggage in front)

    Jupiter looks sturdy - observations base on seen only, not rode

    I hope your wife rides, so take her and do a test ride

    My wife is about 5'6" and she is very comfortable with Jupiter. Body balancing works well and helps in slow moving traffic a lot. She is done with 14k Km and no complains.

    I would suggest Jupiter in this segment for overall satisfaction.

    +1 to Jupiter. Checks all your needs and has proven its worth.
    I would like to thank my legs for supporting me, my arms for being always by my side and my fingers; I could always count on them.

    Yes Honda Activa 4G misses out front telescopic suspension but its is a hell reliable scooter. My sister is a bit taller than 5'6 and she is very very confortable with her Activa. Its been more than 2 years and the scooty is still the same with not even a single issue. The only thing which is worse in activa is its headlight. So i would suggest Activa.

    Go for the test ride, you should be able to make out which one your wife can handle
