The Right Scooter for Your Joy Riding

Apr 3, 2008
How to choose a scooter depends on its purpose. Do you plan on using it for daily transportation and ride frequently or just something that you may use on the weekend for a quick trip to the store. If your plan is to use the scooter for commuting to work or school you should try to choose one of the newer models which gets good gas mileage and can handle itself on open roads. You also need one that has good brakes and lighting.

The pros of going with newer ones it that the wear and tear on your scooter will be able to hold up longer than if you was to purchase an older outdated machine that would end up needing work sooner than you really want to deal with. There are of course pros and cons to whether you purchase a new one or a used one.

If you are skillful at doing your own repairs then going with an older scooter could benefit you if the repairs aren't to disastrous. This could be a good summer project if you have the time, and mechanical know how other wise if you want something that is worry free driving and more modern then definitely go with a newer one. But brand name scooters, like Honda, hold up well even when used. You will definitely be paying a lot more for a new scooter, but if you need it for a reliable ride then it will be a good investment.

Other things to consider when purchasing a scooter is the size/power that you will need. If you need to drive it on the freeway you will definitely need to speak to your local motor vehicle department about certain laws for engine size allowed. Some scooters are able to go up to 80 mph which is really convenient for motorists who need to travel frequently. If you will be going up any hills or carrying passengers you will definitely want to go with more horsepower. Scooters with 300cc's or more are good for this purpose.

For purely recreational purposes, look at smaller motors. These are actually much cheaper anyway, you can grab a quality ride for under $300. These usually max out around 30 mph. Scooters with 50 to 80cc's are perfect for this purpose.

This is just a small portion of information to help you choose the right scooter for you. Make sure to always inspect the credibility of any person or company that you plan on buying from.
