Scooters seem to be the latest craze. They are affordable, fun, efficient forms of transportation and useful for many other things. When buying a scooter there are many issues that you may want to look into before dropping the cash.
Ask yourself this first – what kind of scooter would suit me the best, or the person I am buying it for? Consider quality, price and size first and foremost.
Choose only the best quality. Always, you want to get something for the best possible quality for the least possible price. You also usually want something made out of an aircraft grade aluminum or equivalent so that the strength and support is there but not the weight. Aircraft grade aluminum is the primary component in many a well-known scooter brand. To put it as plainly as possible, aircraft grade aluminum is both durable and lightweight – ’nuff said.
Go for something you can afford. Your second priority would be to find an affordable scooter that does not skimp on quality. For this you may want to go with a brand name like Razor. You get good quality without having to pay the equivalent of a tiny island’s GNP to get your scooter.
Size. They make everything from little kids scooters to scooters for adults. Make sure you get the right size for whomever you are buying it for. A bigger scooter isn’t too easy to handle. Likewise, a smaller scooter may give you difficulty as well.
Motorized scooters, as an aside, may be an option worth your time. I happen to like motorized scooters myself. They come in conventional gas powered varieties or electric. As it is with cars, gas will give you more zing and more zoom while electric will give you more bang for the buck. I have an electric scooter I let my kids use for fun rides on our street – maybe you’d like to buy one for your kids too. However, I also have a gas scooter that allows me to do the groceries or pick up something at the store – they’d be good for your errands as well.
Just about anybody can own and ride on a scooter, as these are both efficient on fuel and very enjoyable to operate. But before buying one for your family and/or friends, remember to research and shop around online first!
