Schwinn Hope 150 Scooter Review

by Sam V.
(Lawrenceville, GA)

What I liked about the scooter: it's pink. What I don't like; Schwinn service is awful or non-existent. It spent more time in the shop than on the road. It's had three throttle problems, coil problems, intake problems, and electrical problems.

After the last throttle problem, my insurance totaled it out and I was more than happy to sign it over.

problems with Schwinn scooters NEW
by: Cliff

I have a Schwinn Newport model. It is a 2009.I had a problem with it when I bought it used. the first then I did was replace the cdi and col, and spark plug and got some good carb cleaner and run about 2 tanks of gas through it and I weight 220 pounds and it will run about 40 miles with me. Takes right off. Pretty good for a 50cc. I believe it is a scooter that require a lot of taking care of. And the scooter weights 165 pounds.

Hope 150
by: Cindyjo2009

I bought a Schwinn Hope 150, because I liked the pink color, and it's small. I'm only 4'11", so I needed something I could feel comfortable on. I loved it....when it wasn't in the shop. After a month, it started powering down on me in traffic. I'd let it sit for a few minutes, and then it would crank back up. I took it to the shop where I bought it three different times. You know how mechanics are...if they can't get it to do the problem while they have it, then they can't fix it. Finally, I raised cain, and they said "well, maybe it's a bad CDI". They replaced it and guess what? Runs like a champ!! No other problems so far! Fingers crossed.

Once again a scooter that wasn't given a good pre-delivery inspection at the dealer. Had this been done all your problems would have been abated and you would have had a good relationship with the scooter. Too bad.

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.
