Ever imagine that maybe you could buy a super cute or sporty gas scooter to zip along your local streets? That thought has occurred to a lot of people. Some have even taken action to make that happen. For many it’s just a passing fancy, not really a serious thought, so they just dismiss the notion. Sometimes it is because they don’t know how to start. In other cases it is because the whole idea is really a huge unknown area. Other times they forego doing so simply because they feel that they can’t do it.

Hold up a second and let’s relax and explore this idea a little. Here are 5 reasons why you should consider buying a gas scooter.

1. You’ll Save Money Up Front and at the Pump

First of all, for the “Pro” side, I would mention that gas scooters save you gas money, plain and simple. Imagine filling your tank for around $3 and then driving for 80 to 100 miles on that one fill-up! Can’t beat that.

And on top of that, you can get a high quality scooter with a 125cc engine (which is plenty big enough for most around-town driving) for around $3000 or less! If you do highway driving, you’ll need to go bigger, but even a 200 or 250cc scooter is highway-legal and safe enough for the interstate. And even these larger scooters can be had for under $5000, in most cases.

2. You’ll Have Fun Riding a Scooter

Secondly, you truly should consider that gas scooters are really fun to drive. There’s nothing like the feeling of the wind on your face and the sun on your shoulders, not to mention that you can actually hear the birds and see the squirrels playing on the side of the road, up close and personal.

3. You’ll Be Helping Save Our Environment

Also, gas scooters are environmentally friendly, much more so even than compact cars, and certainly more so than those huge gas-guzzling SUVs! The modern 4-stroke scooters have low emissions and use much less gas than cars, trucks and sport utility vehicles do.

After all, if scooters weren’t environmentally-friendly, you wouldn’t be able to drive them in the state of California, which has super strict emissions regulations.

4. You Can Park Scooters Almost Anywhere

Plus, even better, gas scooters are so easy to park. In fact, often times you can park right near the door at a shopping mall or center… maybe even on the sidewalk right outside. At any rate, scooters fit where cars and trucks never will.

5. Gas Scooters Pave the Way for Social Interactions

Lastly, you will get tons of admiring stares, smiles and comments when you ride a gas scooter. Which means that you might even make new friends. At any rate, when you buy a scooter, you instantly become part of a friendly community, both locally and world-wide of other scooter lovers. You might even want to join a local scooter group or go on some group scooter rides in your area.

I hear you if you say, “But scooters are so small and dangerous!” I suppose you could make a point for that argument, but keep in mind that how safe you are in riding a scooter is largely dependent on your scooter driving skills and your defensive driving skills. Sure, there are some aggressive drivers out there who may try to bully you… or worse, don’t see you. But my experience is that those types of drivers and few and far between.

Once you have had an opportunity to review the reasons for buying a gas scooter, and give thought to them, you’ll notice that a very good case can be made in favor of buying a scooter.
