The joy of scooter ownership extends to all those who love the open air ride, who have a great deal of self-confidence and don’t feel threatened or intimidated by their bigger motorcycle brethren, and are comfortable with sharing the road with all the other traffic out there, including oversized SUVs and trucks pulling multiple trailers.
Today, however, perhaps the most relevant benefit offered by 250cc scooters is their incredible fuel economy. Since gas prices began climbing so significantly, so have sales of the various scooter brands sold in and across the country. New owner/riders have included many people who rely on their vehicle for their job, above and beyond the traditional commute to and from work. Got a paper route? Get a scooter. Appraisers, meter readers, couriers—the list could go on and on; the delight felt directly in the wallet.
Another clear advantage of the 250cc scooter is their size. Intimidating when coming up against an SUV perhaps, but those feelings quickly evaporate when the rider is in search of parking. For those with a short commute, particularly college students, the ease in securing a parking space is simply an added bonus. And depending on the location, a parking permit for a scooter is a lot less than for a car.
Scooter riders must possess a motorcycle license in most states. And some states or communities may not allow one to ride a scooter on the freeway, or at least the smaller versions, which may be classified as no more than a motorized bicycle.
Safety is always a concern. To many, it’s the love of riding and doing so in a neat, little two-wheeler. Owning a 250 cc scooter can be a fashion statement. It’s not who you are, but what you drive, or ride, in this case. And, with the many values, these little vehicles offer, especially in today’s volatile economy, the choice for transportation may be an easy one. Concluding, Scooters, for lack of a better word, are cool.
