The Cheapest Form of Personal Transport
Actually, the cheapest personal transport contraption is the pedal-powered bicycle.
You might even say thats not correct, the skateboard is.
Okay, no argument there, but when it comes to motorised vehicles, few will argue that scooters make the most economical sense for a personal vehicle. Until they can make a two-seater car even cheaper, the scooter is king of the road.
Fuel Efficiency at Its Best Not only are scooters the cheapest personal transport, but you can enjoy the best mileage anywhere between 60 to 100 miles to a gallon depending on the model.
The money savings are just too dramatic to overlook. People have known the scooter to be a sensible way to get to their destination ever since they became commercially available after WWII with the Italian Vespa scooters. The Japanese Honda and Yamaha brands extended that across a broader market around the world starting in the 1960s.
They had developed a good following for people commuting on short distances and have maintained their appeal. But the technology remained as they often use 4 stroke 50 cc engines on a light body that accounts for much of their fuel efficiency.
