Scooters are a kind of alternative transportation you just gotta love

Can the popularity of this new breed of motorized 2-wheelers be attributed to nothing more than the latest trend? I don't think so. I suspect it goes much deeper than pop fads...

Motorized scooters have many things going for them, but the great mileage they get is probably one of the biggest, given today's ever-mounting gas costs. I know it was one of the biggest pluses for me.

Many gas motor scooters now get up to 100 MPG, which is at least 5 times what many of today's gas gobbling SUVs get. If you ask me, that's nothing to sneeze at! You'd have to list scooters among the most fuel efficient vehicles on earth these days.

Other Benefits of Today's Scooters

Whether you get your motor scooter new or used, it's bound to be fun to ride!

As a passionate scooter lover, I think there are many unique benefits. Here are a few of them:

  • Environmentally-friendly
  • Economical, on many levels
  • Easy to drive
  • Easy to maintain
  • Great in traffic
  • Stable and safe on the road
  • Super easy to park, even in small places
  • Lots of secure storage for shopping!

OK... here's 2 more highly subjective benefits, but thousands of scooters lovers everywhere agree with me...

They're just so darn cute AND tons of fun to ride!

I don't know how else to put it... every time I take off on my Buddy motorized scooter, I have this big grin on my face and I feel pure joy. To me, that's good enough reason to own and ride a scooter. But I DO enjoy all the other benefits of having a motor scooter new too.

And There's The Painful Price of Gas Too...

Scooters are some of the most fuel-efficient vehicles on the road

It's a lot easier to take $2 or $3 to fill up than it is 10 to 20 times as much as that, right?

Even though most of today's 4-stroke gas scooters should be filled with premium gas, with such small tanks and such great miles per gallon, the higher price of premium gas doesn't really seem all that bad, does it?

Most scooters get somewhere between 60 and 100 miles to the gallon, and that's not too shabby!

In Summary...

There are so many benefits to buying a motor scooter new or a motor scooter used. Fun, cost saving, more environmentally green than trucks or SUVs... what's not to love! Smile
