2010 VIP Scooter Review

My VIP Scooter

My VIP Scooter

Just bought this VIP scooter 2 weeks ago and it was my third VIP scooter ($700) in 14 months. At first this may sound negative, but not at all. 10/09 I got a used one with 1200 miles ($600) and by 5/10 had it up to 9000 miles before giving up the ghost. 5/10 got a new VIP ($800) and by 1/11 had it to 10,000 before dieing.

Yes I am a scooter only person now. I have noticed that each scooter has new small improvements. You still need to be a tinker (not a mechanic) to own one of these and do great maintenance (ex. Change oil every 500 miles and spark plug every 1500 miles) $ for $ I can't find a better deal.

I weigh 280 lbs and put my 120 lb wife on the scooter quit often. So the scooter is put to the test. I do keep the scooter at 30 miles per hour (that's the law) but it can go a little faster.

Hmmm! You say your scoot's engine's are just lasting 10,000 miles...? Could it be possible that they're somewhat over loaded? Just 'sayin! :)

I own a shop and cringe when I see one of these in for repairs. Usually towed.. I've seen bad motors, electrics, carburetors, you name it all within the first year of ownership. Possibly the worst brand I've ever worked on.
But I do honestly hope your good luck continues.

Battery Tender Junior in package

A battery tender like the Battery Tender Jr. can make all the difference in whether your scooter will start right up each spring, after being stored for months.

Just about every scooter owner needs to have a battery tender, sometimes called a trickle charger. Unless you are lucky enough to live in a climate where you can ride all year long, chances are your scooter will be put on ice, figuratively-speaking, for at least a couple months every winter.

One of the key steps in winterizing a scooter is to protect your battery from draining during its "rest" period. This can – and will – happen if you leave your battery sitting untended in your cold scooter over the winter, even if it's in a garage or shed.

Read our review or go right to Amazon.com to buy this highly recommended Battery Tender Jr NOW...


ATTENTION! I have had to delete the Scooter Forum for this site, unfortunately. Despite my best efforts, I could not adequately prevent daily attacks by hackers and spammers. Even though most of their posts did not go public, they still cluttered up my website host's server space, jeopardizing my account. I appreciate everyone's contributions over the past few years and I apologize for having to do this.

Wondering why your scooter question never got posted?

Chances are, there is a good reason. Did you...

If you "checked yes" on any of the points above, then I've deleted your post. Sorry, but I have standards. Feel free to re-submit, following the instructions I have everywhere on the site.

Also... all submissions have to be reviewed by me, and I am currently backlogged. Comments go live without approval, but still take 30 to 60 minutes to show up, so don't repost them, please.
