Here are just a few of the many choices you’ll have when you start looking at scooters…
50cc scooters (Honda Cub)
The 50cc scooter size are small and slower, but they DO have their advantages…
If you want a great around town type of scooter, a 50cc scooter could be just the ticket. You’ll be able to keep up just fine with stop-and-go traffic in the city or ‘burbs and some models can even get up to 50 MPH, though 35 to 40 MPH is probably a more average top speed.
50cc scooters are relatively inexpensive and operating Small Scooters May Be Cheaper,too…
Another nice thing about a 50cc gas scooter is that you don’t need a driver’s license to ride this kind a scooter in Vietnam.
For an economical commuter vehicle that can zip in and out of traffic easily and park almost anywhere, 50cc scooters can be just the ticket!
150cc scooter (or slightly smaller 125cc/110cc scooter) is the perfect size scooter… not too big and definitely not too small! Big enough to seem substantial against cars and other vehicles on busy streets, but not too big to lose ease of control and balance.
If you want a gas scooter with more pep and size than the traditional 50cc scooter (and many people do eventually upgrade when they realize the limitations of an entry-level scooter), you might look into moving up to a 150cc scooter. Even if you’re small, you should be able to find a comfortable fit on this size scooter.
250cc scooters & larger
The 250cc size gas motor scooter is larger, heavier and can go faster with more stability. And you’ll definitely have good power and acceleration, no matter how you decide to use your scooter.
The 250cc scooter is sometimes called a performance scooter and may have enhancements and upgrades to prove that fact. This size of scooter will have no trouble going the speeds needed on expressways, so if you need that, then this size might be right for you.
