Scooters

Thinking of buying a scooter? What’s stopping you! Thousands of people daily commute on scooters, they are cheap to run, cheap on petrol, cheap registration costs, free parking in most cases, and you can use the bus lane. With soaring fuel costs 5 litres of petrol will give you an average fuel range of (4 stroke engines 180 to 200km)  Now that’s really cheap when you consider filling the car at 30litres for similar mileage.

There are many factors to consider when buying a scooter, What’s best for you? Engines differ from 2 stroke to 4 stroke, the basic’s are that 4 stroke engines give better fuel economy, were as 2 stroke engines make more torque or overall power. Most 2 stroke engines are oil injected so there is no mixing the oil with the fuel, were as 4 strokes engines requires regular oil changes.

In my opinion there is no “better engine” as such, as they both have their benefits and disadvantages

2 stroke engines produce more power, cost more to buy, but cost less In servicing and generally are cheaper to run when looking at yearly costs. 4 Stroke engines are cheaper to buy, and give better fuel economy, they last longer in terms of engine component wear, but do require on going oil changes. Which makes them more expensive when looking at yearly costs, They also offer less horse power for your money when it comes to modifying them.

Overall they end up costing about the same, if you factor in fuel costs, buy price, and serving etc..
