The Motor Scooter Buying Guide
The Motor Scooter Buying Guide can assist you in finding the right brand of motor scooter,
the right model, at the right price, and from the right dealer. Finding the right scooter
for you can be a daunting task, as with OVER 50 BRANDS to choose from the scooter industry is (for lack of a better word)
"crazy". The intent of this guide is to make the process of buying a scooter that's right
for you as simple as possible.
This site maintains a list of motor scooter dealers in all 50 states,
as well as a list of online motor
scooter dealers. Before contacting these dealers, read a few of the articles on this website
so that you are better prepared for this "crazy" market.
Buying a Motor Scooter - Getting Started
To get started, we recommend reading the articles "Brands of Motor scooters",
"How to choose a Motor Scooter",
and then "Where to Buy a Motor Scooter".
If you are like most people
who are new to motor scooters, the process of talking to scooter dealers about what to buy
can quickly turn into a "soup sandwich". Just by reading those three articles and perhaps a few others
on this website, you will be
able to get a grasp on the current motor scooter market, and be able to use the scooter dealer resources
on this website to find the right scooter for you.
Gas Motor Scooter Information
Gas motor scooters have been around for many decades. While their use has always been
extremely popular throughout Europe and Asia, the U.S. scooter market has traditionally been
very small... until Americans started paying more than $4 a gallon at the pump. With these
new gas prices the use of gas motor scooters in America is sky rocketing. The majority of
this website currently focuses on gas motor scooters, but as technology changes in the
motor scooter market, so will this site.
Electric Motor Scooter Information
Electric motor scooters have traditionally been used only in niche situations, as their
top speeds and the distance the battery lasts has been limited. But we are starting
to see new electric motor scooters that are beginning to rival the gas motor scooters.
Like the new
XB-700LI Lithium Powered Electric Bicycle
for up to 35 miles on battery power alone and goes up to 20 miles per hour.
The current number of models
is very limited in this space, but that is quickly changing. [more info coming soon]
Motorized Kick Scooter Information
Razor reinvented the kick scooter, and brought with it the
popularity of the motorized kick scooter. Whether it be
electric powered or gas powered, a motorized kick scooter can be a lot of fun. But fun is pretty much all they are limited to,
as it would be fairly difficult to use them in way to save money on gas. Still, they are technically "motor" scooters,
and as such this site will provide tools and resources for those considering purchasing motorized kick scooters. [more info coming soon]
Cheap Motorcycles / 250cc Motorcycle Information
Every state has its own definition of what a scooter is. Some base it on the engine size, where as others base it
on how fast it can go or whether or not it's a "step through" frame. As such, some small displacement motorcycles
(engine sizes of 250cc or less) are considered to be scooters. The scooter title is even more appropriate when we see that some
of these "cheap motorcycles" are actually just scooter engines on a bike with a motorcycle frame. Regardless
of what you call them, the popularity of these street legal cheap motorcycles is increasing
at the same rate as motor scooters.
