Scooters are a great form of urban transportation. They are quick and nimble plus they get fantastic fuel mileage. Most modern day scooters have continuously variable transmission (CVT) drive systems. This means no gears and no clutch to worry about in traffic.
Even the smallest 50cc scooter is peppy enough to handle downtown traffic. Bigger scooters range up to 650 cc engines, making them suitable for highway speeds. Most scooters have under seat storage and many scooters have grocery bag hooks for that quick stop at the market on the way home.
Many urban centres have free parking for scooters. Scooters may have different licensing requirements than regular motorcycles depending on the province. These requirements are province-specific. For more information about licensing click here.
