Chinese scooters & cheap scooters - good value or ripoff?

NOTE: I use the term "cheap scooters" in quite a few places on this site, particularly here in the Chinese scooters hub. If you read my content, I think you'll realize that I try everywhere to provide balanced reporting on what is certainly a passionate issue for a lot of people.

I use the term "cheap scooter" not to be judgmental in any way. I use it because it's a popular search term. How popular? Try 58,672 searches a month! This site is meant to be found. As such, I sprinkle wording throughout it that is aligned with how people search for information about scooters.

I think I provide valuable information about Chinese scooters on this site and I want people to be able to find it. In addition, I don't think of the word cheap as having a negative connotation.

I often search the Web for "cheap" products. I love to save money too!

So I hope that helps my readers understand better why I use the words I do.

Chinese scooters are some of the most intriguing scooters around, simply because they are so darn cheap. Those low prices are extremely tempting when you enter the market as a prospective scooter buyer. These are the scooters you can buy over the Internet or at local locations such as Pep Boys, used car dealers and anyone else who is looking to cash in on the scooter trend.

But are you going to "get what you pay for"? In other words, not much? Well, opinions seem to vary quite greatly on that point. Some people swear by these cheap beauties, while others relate true horror stories.

I present two opposing views here for buying such scooters online:

In the end, only you can be the judge on what works for you. But reading the reviews here may help, so have at it...

WARNING... NO Text Speak Here!

Worried smile

This is MY website, so I make the rules. And one of them is that I don't publish "textspeak" here. If you leave a review or a comment, PLEASE use proper capitalization & punctuation! There's so much free information here, so I hope you'll be respectful and take the time to type intelligibly. I get dozens of submissions every single week & I just don't have time to do heavy editing. If you type your review in ALL CAPS, all lower case, don't use punctuation or spell check, then I WILL delete it! No exceptions.
Thanks for understanding,

Share Your Chinese Scooter Review

Can you speak firsthand about a Chinese scooter? If so, that's great... I want you to share it with our site visitors & community!

Tell us all the ins and outs of what you do and don't like about your Chinese scooter. The more detail you include, the more meaningful this review will be for future visitors to this page.

A review that just says something like "Awesome scooter! Love it!" has no real value because it doesn't tell us what you liked... or didn't like.

At a bare minimum, you should include info on the following factors:

  • Appearance & design
  • How well it runs/performance
  • Reliability
  • Price vs. value
  • Customer support from seller, if applicable
  • How long you've owned this scooter

OK... please share! :)

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.
