If you are looking to buy a scooter then you sure have picked the right time to do so. With spring and eventually summer right around the corner using a scooter as a mode of transportation makes a lot of sense. Scooters can take you almost anywhere that you need to go for a fraction of the cost when compared to your car. There are many different models of scooters on the market. Consumers have the option of choosing between gas or electric scooters and the numerous options among the two. When purchasing a scooter roughly around $2000, or just a bit less, you will be getting a better quality vehicle than ones costing around $300. These higher end models tend to have more power and are street legal (which means you can drive them on the road with regular traffic). Here are 5 street legal scooters that will have you zipping around the roads to all of your favorite destinations.
