I’ve been seeing more and more people driving around my area on scooters – manual, electric and gas powered. It seems the trend is on the rise, or perhaps it’s the area that I live in where everything is relatively close by – not far enough to walk but no really a justified drive?
Wondering why the huge surge in popularity of these machines I went looking for some online and I discovered Urban Scooters, a company that sells a line of what they call X-Treme Scooters. I’m amazed at the line of scooters that they have, some are very powerful, particularly their x-treme line of scooters.
The X-Treme X-140 is a model that’s suitable for kids, only going 10 mph. It looks much more like a traditional scooter than say the X-Treme XP-700 which looks very much like a compact motorcycle – to me it does anyway.
It’s unbelievable how many types of scooters they have and how different they look from what one might imagine when you hear the word scooter. The X-Treme X-250 is probably the type I would get if I were to get one. It goes about 13 mph and is said to be a more rugged than the x-140 model. Likely perfect for tooling around the city with I would imagine.
I guess, after a looking at a site like Urban Scooters I can see why so many people in this area are buying them. They look like an interesting mode of transportation- and an inexpensive one at that.
