250cc Scooter & Larger

Larger, More Versatile Gas Motor Scooters

A 250cc scooter is one of the larger gas motor scooters class, which can go up as high as a 850cc gas scooter engine size.

This size was too large for me to handle (I'm under 5 feet tall), but for a more average sized person, it'd probably work out just fine! And you'll definitely have good power and acceleration, no matter how you decide to use your scooter.

The 250cc scooter is sometimes called a performance scooter and may have enhancements and upgrades to prove that fact. This size of scooter will have no trouble going the speeds needed on expressways, so if you need that, then this size might be right for you.

Other Sizes of Gas Motor Scooters

They emphasize space, comfort, and features, such as sound systems and raised passenger seats. The design of these monsters may even be different from the usual scooter design.

In Summary...

In summary, if you're looking for a scooter that is more motorcycle than moped, but still maintains some of the features and advantages of a scooter, then a 250cc scooter or larger might be the right choice for you...
