A Guide to Motor Scooters

Scooters were first known as a child's push vehicle that dates back to before 1920. Advancements in technology led to the development of small engines, which, when added to the traditional scooter provided for a practical and affordable means of transportation. Motor scooters have been a favorite in European countries for decades. The low-power vehicle wasn't too attractive to the power-hungry American market until recently. Sleek styling of the modern scooter, combined with the product being seen in a variety of films has opened the door to the American urban market.

Modern motor scooters feature either a small gasoline engine or an electric motor, depending upon the vehicle's design. Modern scooters feature electric and gas motorized models. Competition among scooter manufacturers and continuing sales has led to unique design features, such as miniature low-powered motorcycles. Motorized scooters, whether the rider is to sit or stand, are considered low-power motor vehicles by many municipalities and are subject to state and local regulations. Some scooters meet Department of Transportation regulations for operation on streets and roadways while others are prohibited from being on the streets. Any time a

motorized vehicle is introduced into traffic areas, appropriate cautionary measures must be taken and proper safety gear must be worn.

Scooters can be easily found in the retail market, however not all retailers may carry all styles. Major discount or department stores may only carry a couple of models that they believe will be the most popular among their shoppers. A scooter store could specialize in a variety of recreational scooters, while another store will specialize in the mobility scooters. Retailers also offer scooter accessories to enhance the experience as well as replacement parts and service. Any style of scooter can be purchased online for retail pricing. The current market demand for scooters makes it hard to find them at wholesale prices for a single purchase, but there are many opportunities for an individual to become a scooter dealer.
