Gas scooters have been a favorite form of affordable transportation in European countries for decades. The low-power vehicle wasn't that attractive to the power-hungry American market until recently.

Sleek styling of the modern scooter combined with the product being seen in a variety of films has opened the door to the American urban market.  Increasing gasoline prices has added to the small vehicle’s appeal.  Competition among scooter manufacturers and continuing sales has led to unique design features,Guest Posting such as miniature, low-powered, Harley-Davidson style motorcycles. The smaller version of the grown-up bike has made it a choice ride for older children, leading to the scrutiny of police departments and parent groups.

Gas scooters are considered low-power motor vehicles by many municipalities and are subject to state and local regulations. Some scooters meet Department of Transportation regulations for operation on streets and roadways while others are prohibited from being on the streets. Any time a motorized vehicle is introduced into traffic areas, appropriate cautionary measures must be taken and proper safety gear must be worn.

Scooters can be easily found in the retail market, however not all retailers may carry all styles. Major discount or department stores may only carry a couple of models that they believe will be the most popular among their shoppers. A scooter store could specialize in a variety of recreational scooters with gas or electric engines. Many motorcycle retailers will also offer some gas scooters alongside traditional motorcycles. Retailers also offer scooter accessories to enhance the riding experience as well as replacement parts and service.

Any style of scooter can be purchased online for retail pricing. The current market demand for scooters makes it hard to find them at wholesale prices for a single purchase, but there are many opportunities for an individual to become a scooter dealer.
