Scooter Reviews

Scooters are two-wheeled vehicles that are unique in the fact that the engine is usually under the seat and directly attached to the rear axle. This allows the rider to not have to straddle the engine but puts a limitation on rear suspension quality. Scooters, in contrast to many other classes of motorcycles, have bodywork to conceal all the mechanicals. These make for great runabouts in the city and are amazingly prevalent in Europe and Asia.

2012 Yamaha Zuma 125 Review

If riding a small-bore scooter leaves you feeling emasculated, consider the Yamaha Zuma 125: rugged, aggressive styling (especially in black), fat, semi-knobby tires and power enough to shoot its rider across an intersection faster than the average car.

2012 Piaggio Typhoon 125 Review

Piaggio claims the Typhoon can achieve an astonishing 90 mpg from its tiny 124cc single-cylinder engine. Another notable figure is its price. At just $2699, the Typhoon is a natural choice for anyone looking for cheap, reliable transportation.
