With the way gas prices fluctuate, people have been looking for alternative modes of transportation. Enter the scooter, a perfect substitute for people who do not need to drive long distances on a daily basis. Scooters have become the “it” item on many college campuses, and with the customization options available, it makes sense why.
Scooters are from the family of Motorcycles, but are generally considered safer and easier to ride on.
Elements of scooter design have been noted in some of the earliest motorcycles, and motorcycles identifiable as scooters have been made from 1914 or earlier. Scooters were originally intended for low-power personal transportation with engines between 50 and 250 cc.
Trends around the world have seen new variations on the classic scooter, some with larger engines and tires. High-end scooter models now include comprehensive technological features, including cast aluminum frames, engines with integral counter-balancing, and cross-linked brake systems.
The classic scooter design features a step-through frame and a flat floorboard for the rider's feet. This design is possible because most scooter engines and drive systems are attached to the rear axle or under the seat. These are the scooters most people easily identify with.
Different from a motorcycle though, the engine is mounted on the frame, with these front-hinged arrangements allowing the engine to swing vertically together with the rear wheel. Most vintage scooters and some newer retro models have axle-mounted engines with a manual transmission and the gear shift and clutch controls built into the left handlebar. Most newer scooters use a Continuously Variable Transmission.
If you’re looking for a Scooter, there are many different variables you need to take into account. From how much you want to pay to how fast you want it to go, to what style you want to ride on.
Unlike most motorcycles, scooters usually feature bodywork, including a front leg shield and body that conceals all or most of the mechanicals. There is often some integral storage space, either under the seat, built into the front leg shield, or both.
Scooters are classified by their engine size. Most scooters have small engines, 50 cc to 400 cc with a single cylinder, although maxi-scooters might have twin cylinder 400 to 800 cc engines.
Vespa is an Italian line of scooters manufactured by Piaggio. The Vespa has evolved from a single model motor scooter manufactured in 1946 to a full line of scooters and one of seven companies today owned by Piaggio, Europe's largest manufacturer of two-wheeled vehicles and the world's fourth largest motorcycle manufacturer by unit sales.
From their inception, Vespa scooters have been known for their painted, pressed steel unibody which combines a complete cowling for the engine, a flat floorboard and a prominent front fairing.
Some of these scooters have comfort features such as an alarm, start
button, radio, windshield, heated hand grips and full gauge instrumentation.
