Why buy a Scooter
Scooters are very economical because they have great fuel economy with some models having a gas mileage of more than 42 kilometers per liter. Scooters are inexpensive with some of the leading models in the country priced between P50,000 and 80,000 and are cheaper to insure. They are also customizable and can easily be personalized with motorcycle accessories.
On the downside, scooters are not highway worthy because of their low ride height, power and acceleration. They have small wheels and are difficult to control, making it hard to traverse the congested roads. If you are looking for a motorcycle to commute to work, a standard motorbike is a better option.
Take note that while scooters have lower speeds than most motorcycles, riding one still requires you to wear safety equipment such as a helmet, knee pads and shoulder pads.
