Is there a better combination than saving money and having fun?
In that regard, motor scooter owners do indeed enjoy the best of both worlds - keeping their money in their pocketbooks while experiencing the joy of two-wheel transportation on the open road.
Studies show that owners are evenly divided on their main reason for making the decision to purchase a scooter – economical commuting or entertainment. Of course, there can be a bit of both depending upon one's needs and lifestyle.
The scooter has an interesting history with its origin essentially dating back to the 1930s and its development primarily for military use. The popularity of the vehicle exploded in the post-World War II era, especially in Italy and other areas of Europe.
The style of the classic scooter was never more vividly captured than in Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn enjoying an exhilarating day motoring around the Italian capital in the 1953 blockbuster movie "Roman Holiday".
The "Mod Scene" in Britain in the 1960s featured the classic (and heavily-accessorized) motor scooter as one of its key elements.
Today, the scooter is the vehicle of choice in many parts of the world, and it's growing in popularity in the United States, too.
Scooters are a common sight on most college campuses because of their positive impact on student budgets, and they're fun to ride. The're equally at home in urban settings as well as the city streets and highways of rural America. Scooters are great for running errands around town or tooling around the campsite. Ample storage room under the seat in many models is another significant plus.
Scooters are an excellent entry vehicle into the two-wheel world for young riders. They are relatively simple to operate, with automatic transmissions being the norm.
