FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Do scooters require a motorcycle endorsement?
In Arizona, a motorcycle endorsement is required to ride a scooter on public streets. This INCLUDES 49cc scooters. The exception is for PEDAL DRIVEN bikes or scooters with a helper motor of 50cc or less. Insurance and registration are also required for vehicles ridden on public roadways.
Is financing available?
Yes, we have multiple options for financing. No credit and bad credit, as well as discount programs on select Taiwanese scooters for persons with good credit.
Can you order vehicles if they aren't in stock in the store?
You can order vehicles we don't have currently in stock with a 50% deposit. We will then place the order with the vendor and receive it in about a week.
Are Chinese scooters reliable?
The short answer is “somewhat”. They are inexpensive to purchase and inexpensive to repair but they tend to need repairs more frequently, and have a shorter lifespan than scooters from Japan or Taiwan. We also have Taiwanese scooters available that are extremely reliable (Kymco, SYM, Lance); these come with (limited) two-year parts and labor warranties.
Are they hard to get parts for?
We stock most of the common mechanical parts in our store. Other parts can typically be available within 2-7 days. We usually have parts available to keep a Chinese scooter running. Plastic body parts on the older models may be hard to find. We can suggest websites for you to order from.
How fast will they go?
50cc 4-stroke: 30-35 mph; 125cc Taiwanese: 55 mph; 150cc Chinese: 55 mph; 150cc Taiwan: 65 mph; 200cc Taiwan: 70 mph; 250cc Chinese: 65 mph; 300cc Taiwan: 80 mph
What is the gas mileage?
The range for 50cc scooters is roughly 80-100 mpg. For 150cc scooters, roughly 70-90 mpg. Gas mileage is dependent on the weight of the driver, driving conditions, grade of the road, etc.
