For some it is simply the unwillingness to keep paying higher and higher prices for gasoline. For others perhaps, it is a more altruistic motive, lowering their carbon footprint by living a more earth-friendly lifestyle. Often it is a combination of both factors that explain the heightened interest among commuters in owning and riding a scooter for basic transportation. Scooters provide economical transportation, are environmentally friendly and are just plain fun to ride.
Aside from being a stylishly hip way to commute, scooters are low on gas and emissions as well as being a freakin balls out blast to ride! Scooters are usually operated by a small 50 to 200cc engine. The limited number of mechanical parts on these smaller vehicles has made them very dependable, functional and ideal for low mileage commutes in downtown, suburban and recreational settings.
Traditionally scooters have relied on the smaller of these engines to provide their power. MaxiScoots are a relatively new type of scooter that combines a modern scooter style and frame with an engine of 250ccs or above.
This allows the scooter to travel at speeds close to 100 mph, allowing for travel on interstates and highways as well as making them more fun and fuel efficient. The average fuel consumption for MaxiScoots is between 50-69 mpg, depending on the manufacturer.
Beyond the personal satisfaction of experiencing significant savings on gasoline, adopting a motor scooter as an alternative form of transportation offers much in the way of societal benefits. Eco-friendly scooters reduce fossil fuels consumption, pollution in the form of carbon dioxide emissions and help to relieve traffic congestion.
What’s really great about the maxiscoot style is that in addition to the better performance you get more miles to the gallon compared to a car. Helping to reduce pollution and fatten your wallet at the same time makes these scooters an environmental hero.
Depending on the make and model you choose you may get an average of 50 to 69 mpg. This is quite a big difference compared to a car getting anywhere from 15 to 25 mpg.
So get out there and get started saving money and the planet by riding a maxiscoot. The fun you get just from riding a maxiscoot will have you feeling like a kid again and you’ll be cleaning the air as you ride!
