Are scooters reliable?

It can be a concern that if you are going to spend your hard earned money on a scooter for commuting or pleasure that it will be a good investment and a reliable form of transport.  

The simple answer is YES, Scooters are reliable!

The key to reliability is always regular servicing and maintenance, but also choosing the right scooter for the job. A small engine scooter is not going to perform well on A roads at high speeds, equally so a large cc maxi scooter  could struggle when faced with regular busy start stop traffic. The choice will depend on its use and will help maximise your enjoyment and reliability experience.

If you are going to commute mainly in the centre of the capital, a smaller cc, nimble bike may be the best travel option.

However, if you are going to need to travel further out of London at potentially higher speeds and distance, a larger cubic capacity machine may be the best option to get you from home to work and back in comfort and with greater safety.
