When people talk about buying a scooter, many people scoff at them and ask why they aren’t buying a proper motorcycle. They all seem to forget that while the motorcycles are extremely practical, they are much bigger than conventional scooters and so are a little bit harder to handle especially in busy city traffic. Many people are not speed freaks and they don’t need a high CC motorcycle between their legs to feel the enjoyment of riding with the wind in their face and the sun on their backs. For city traffic especially, scooters are just easier to handle and they can weave in and out of traffic so easily and with very little effort on the rider’s part.
They also look amazing and models like the Super Soco CUx-Scooter are incredibly popular and they come in many different colours as well. If you’ve been toying with the idea about whether or not to get yourself a motorcycle or scooter, then maybe the following benefits of choosing the latter can help you to make a more informed decision.
- It will save you money – Not only will it save you a considerable amount of money when it comes to the initial purchase price, but this couldn’t be much cheaper to run and so that is money that you get to keep in your wallet or purse. It costs very little money to fill up the petrol tank, but it can take you far and wide with the bare minimum of expense. They are cheap to tax and ensure and yet they get you to everywhere that you want to go.
- Easy to operate – When you ride a conventional motorcycle, you need to know how to use a manual clutch and to move up and down the gears depending on your speed and circumstances. With scooters, there is none of that and they are simply just twist and go. This means that they are incredibly easy to drive and they are a lot of fun as well. The fact that you’re not concentrating on changing years allows you to concentrate more on everything around you and to keep yourself safe while driving on the roads.
- Incredibly compact – Motorcycles are generally easy to find a parking space for, but when it comes to scooters, the smallest spaces possible will do. Many cities allow you to Park your scooter on the pavement like bicycles and so all you need to do is to find a space where it can fit in and you can park there.
Deciding to buy a scooter is a smart decision as it will save you a lot of money and it is incredibly convenient as well. There are so many different models to choose from and there is bound to be a colour and design that you really love.
