On The Road
Why are your scooter prices so low?
We supply our own brand of scooters direct to the customer, cutting out the middle man. This means we can supply high quality scooters at very competitive prices.
Should I choose a 50cc or 125cc petrol scooter?
50cc – 50cc scooters are restricted to 30 miles per hour. This is ideal for short journeys, nipping around town, getting into central London. The minimum age requirement is 16.
125cc - If you’re an advanced rider or need to go on roads above 30mph and for longer journeys, a 125cc scooter is more suitable. They are not restricted and can reach 60 mph. You need to be 17 to ride one.
Two stroke or four stroke engine?
All our scooters are supplied with four stroke engines. With four stroke machines you can use unleaded petrol, have better fuel economy and lower overall emission levels. Two stroke engines you will need to mix oil and petrol before use.
How much will a scooter cost to run?
A typical scooter consumes between 55% and 81% less fuel than a car for the same journey (SMART guide, MCIA 2002). A 125cc machine will typically cost under 10 pence per mile to run. (www.greenconsumerguide.com. Feb 05)
What does de-restriction mean?
A 50cc scooter comes from the factory restricted to 30 mph. If you are
17 or over with a full bike licence / CBT test, you can have the scooter de-restricted. The restrictors on the scooter are taken out; the scooter is no longer classed as a moped. It will usually go 10 - 20mph faster. Please note derestriction will void your warranty and you will need to inform relevant parties of any such modifications.
