You want to buy a scooter and that is why it is good that you ended up on this page! There are many differences, so that sometimes you can no longer see the forest for the trees. With the aid below, we may be able to steer you in a certain direction and get you started.
Little use, mainly pleasure rides
Do you want to use the scooter purely for fun rides, for example to tour around in good weather? And is the scooter always dry in the garage or shed? In that case you can opt for a scooter, especially if you have a small budget. If your budget is a bit larger and reliability is very important to you, we recommend stunt scooter.
No idea yet how much the use will be?
You may not yet know how much you will be using the scooter. Our experience shows that after using the scooter for the first time, many customers end up using it quite a lot. Driving a scooter is really fun and convenient. You save a lot of time in a busy environment, and it is a cheap means of transport. With a two-wheeler you can park anywhere without costs.
To avoid disappointment later on, we advise you to buy a good product, which you will not regret later.
Daily to weekly use
You are going to use the scooter daily or weekly. This for commuting, school, or other purposes. In that case, we recommend that you buy a reputable brand with low fuel consumption. Injection scooters have a low fuel consumption and are easier to start than scooters that don’t.
An electric scooter, or e-scooter, is currently not ideal for long distances or daily use. You can only drive a limited number of kilometers on a full battery charge. When the battery is empty, you have to wait an average of 6 hours until it is fully charged again. The distance you can cover with a full battery is around 60 to 80 kilometers. It is therefore better to buy a petrol scooter with frequent use.
Of course you want to buy a good scooter for as little money as possible. But how important is reliability and quality to you? Scooters have more problems (unfortunately) than the European or Japanese brands. Of course you always have a warranty, but the manufacturer only reimburses the parts, not the labor to install the parts. So you still have low costs.
Are you Big or Small
The length of your body also plays a role. The scooter that suits you well should therefore not be too big or too small. If you are small in size, it is best to choose a scooter with a small wheel size such as 10 inches. Do you have an average height, or are you tall, and / or would you like to be able to take someone on the back? Then we recommend that you choose a scooter with at least 12 inch wheels.
Many scooters have a 10 inch wheel size. This is partly due to the fact that are somewhat smaller than the average person. Most European scooter brands have 12 inch wheels or larger.
