The Many Advantages of Scooters

In today’s economy most people are looking for ways to save money and economise. Transport has become one of the most expensive things in today’s modern life and really makes some people break the bank. The best and most economical transport on our roads today is perhaps a scooter! Unlike quad bikes, this vehicle is allowed on our main roads and they are becoming a popular transport choice for many people in South Africa. It is safe to say that soon more and more people will be using this type of transport.

If you are interested in learning about some of the obvious and less obvious advantages of owning your own scooter, then read on:

  • Insurance: Insurance isn’t cheap these days, but no one can do without it in South Africa. This is especially true when living in a big city with a lot of traffic. Scooters under 50cc, however, will have very affordable insurance rates. This can add up to a lot of savings when you compare conventional car insurance with that of scooter insurance.
  • Petrol: Everyone is feeling the pressure of petrol increases in South Africa as of late and it doesn’t look like things will be changing for the good any time soon. Depending on the types of roads you will be travelling, you will find that the petrol consumption of a conventional car far exceeds that of a scooter. Thus, you will save a lot of money on your monthly petrol bill simply by making your scooter your main mode of transport.
  • Parking: Parking spaces can be an annoyance, especially in busy areas, at malls, commercial buildings and at offices. The scooter is so compact and mobile you might even be able to fit it into your office, keeping it safe and saving on parking fees at the same time.
  • Far cheaper than a car: It’s not difficult to see how the price of a scooter and that of a car compares to one another. In fact, there really isn’t a comparison to make at all. The price of a decent scooter can run in the thousands, but a car can run in the tens or hundreds of thousands.
