Types of Scooters

Scooter Engine Size — The size of the engine, from the little 49cc scooters to the maxi-scooters of 650cc or greater, is one way of classifying scooters. Learn more here.

  • 125cc/150cc Scooters — 125cc and 150cc scooters are some of the most popular scooters today. Small enough to be easy for just about anyone to ride (even shrimps like me!), but large enough to hold their own on city streets and even the highway, you'll have tons of choices of styles, colors, and brands.

  • 250cc & Larger Scooters — Scooters with these larger engines tend to resemble motorcycles more closely, along with the power to go fast and travel unimpeded on just about any road around.

How You'll Use It — This page looks at some of the different uses of scooters... from riding on the road, to off-road adventures, to long distance touring. A scooter can do it all... provided you choose the right type.

How It's Powered — Most people think of gas propulsion when they think of scooters, just as they would with a motorcycle, but the truth is, green is in. And scooters are becoming more green too. Find out more...

  • Gasoline-Powered Scooters — Gasoline scooters are the most common, but even the type of gasoline may be changing in the future. Also, today's gasoline scooters are already more environmentally-friendly than the old 2-stroke Vespas of WWII days... read more about 4-stroke engines and beyond.

I appreciate everyone's contributions over the past few years and I apologize for having to do this.
