There are literally hundreds of scooter brands available, especially if you consider the many Chinese scoots that are marketed under a variety of different names. And in each brand, there can be several models. So how is a new prospective scooter owner to know which scooter brand is best?

Truth is, there are as many answers to the brand question as there are scooter owners! I love my Genuine Buddy and I think the Genuine brand of scooters is above much of their competition, when it comes to quality and reliability, but they are a bit pricey. Others, like Jim Z. on the site here, love their cheap Chinese scoots. You'll also find Yamaha lovers, Kymco loyalists and more here.

I think, in the end, answers to what are the best scooter brands are part personal and part based on your particular needs, budget and preferences. Still, we can try to answer the scooter brands questions you have here, but realize what you'll find is largely opinion.

Common Questions About Scooter Brands

Question: How do I choose?

Answer: Well, as I explained above, there is no one right answer to the best scooter brand. What's best for you might be different than what's best for me. You have to weight all the factors, read reviews, take test rides if you can and then come back here and ask informed questions and gather opinions.

Question: How do I know what brand/model this scooter is?

Answer: Try looking under the seat to see who manufactured the scooter in question. Then, try Googling that and see what comes up. If you have the VIN number, you should be able to get more information at one of these websites:

This is MY website, so I make the rules. And one of them is that I don't publish "textspeak" here. If you ask a question, PLEASE use proper capitalization & punctuation! You're getting FREE advice 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 question or review in ALL CAPS, all lower case, don't use punctuation or spell check, then I WILL delete it! No exceptions.
