If you’re looking to buy a 50cc scooter for sale, or maybe a 150cc scooter or larger… this super easy article will give you some very good tips to make sure you make all the right choices, and that your purchase won’t end up biting you in the as*.
Article Bullet Points:
1) Price Point – Economy, Mid-Range, Luxury
The first thing you will need to decide is your budget. Do you want to spend $1,000, $3,000 or maybe $5,000 and up?
Of course, as with anything, usually the more expensive, the better quality you will get. But there are some Brands out there that give a lot of bang for buck too. A Wolf RX-50 or Islander, retails for around $1,099 and comes with a 2-year warranty, excellent parts availability and a large network of quality dealers to choose from.
Or you can go more mid-range, in the $2,200-3,000 price range with let’s say a Genuine Scooter. Those also come with a 2-year warranty.
Your high-end pricey scooters will of course be… Vespa. Be prepared to spend upwards of $3500-$11,000 for one of these iconic Italian scooties. Pretty yes, but pricey too.

2) 50cc (aka 49cc) or 150cc Scooter- which is right for you?
A 50cc will go around 35-40mph on average and are good for light day to day inner-city travel. Stay off highways with a 50cc!
A 150cc will go around 50-55mph on average, and are better for longer commutes, or when riding on busier streets and larger roads. I would still stay off any major highways with a 150cc scooter though! They’re a little bit more expensive than a 50cc as well, so keep that in mind. However, if you can budget for it, they are much faster and peppier, and I would personally go for a 150cc when possible.

Get a product with a good warranty. That means they stand behind what they sell. No warranty means they don’t want to be financially responsible for your piece of shi*. A good warranty is minimally 1 Year on all parts, preferably 2, and labor coverage a huge bonus but will usually cost you more of course.
4) Where to buy scooters? Buy at a local scooter dealer (not online)!
Buying a motor vehicle of any kind on-line is always a risk. You really have no recourse and are at the disposal of the company responding to, or not responding to your emails. Buying in a trusted local brick and mortar shop gives you the ability to go in and get maintenance or have repairs done, as that is inevitable with any motor vehicle you will purchase. When you buy on-line, you will still have to find a local service center anyways, so why not kill two birds with one stone and buy local!
