This is the LITE version designed for younger riders (ages 6+). There is a max payload limit of 176 lbs. One of the main physical (non-battery related) differences in the MiniLITE and the MiniPro is that the MiniLITE has a lower/non-adjustable control bar to make it easier for younger riders to control the device. There are no adapters available to add handlebars to this device. This device(miniLITE) retails for $499.99, but often is available for $399.99. This is the lowest price i have seen this device so far this holiday season.
