One may wonder what a scooter is doing on this list. Yes, scooters were initially rattletraps featuring buzzy engines, little wheels, and spotty braking systems; they were dangerous. Today, it is no longer the case. Modern scooters are safer, more comfortable, tech-packed, and powerful; hence, they are ideal if you want to get around town. This, however, does not mean that you will not find scooters with small wheels today. The wheels may still be small, but it seems the makers of this lightweight machine have good mastery of the rider control art, which is actually good news for all scooter lovers because you will only need some basic practice to ride your scooter like a pro.
The fact that scooter makers are now coming up with large machines is also a bonus for many riders. Today, there are up 650cc machines out there, and with the rapidly evolving motorbike technology, a larger machine may be in the offing; who knows?
It is important to note that scooters have a better weather protection than other types of motorcycles. Plus, most scooters don’t require changing gears; they are simply “twist and go” or CVT machines. So, as your dream to ride on a scooter finally becomes a reality, may you be safe on your two wheels.
