How to Start Riding a Scooter or Motorcycle
First Choose Your Vehicle
Motor Scooters are usually offered by manufacturers in three engine sizes: 50cc; 150cc; and 250cc (“cc” stands for “cubic centimeters”).
The size of the scooter’s engine will determine how fast your scooter can go. So your choice of engine size should be based on how fast you need to drive. Higher CC, faster bike!
Some manufacturers have other engine sizes like 125cc, or more than 250cc (which are sometimes called “Maxi-scoots”).
Now that you know what size of engine you need, you’ll likely see there are several models to that offer your size of the engine. The model you choose should reflect your style.
Motorcycles vary more widely in their CCs which is also called engine displacement. (“cc” stands for “cubic centimeters”).
The larger the volume of the cylinders (or the higher the CC), the more air and fuel the engine is able to suck in at once, and the more power the engine will be able to generate. Higher CC, faster bike!
However, a motorcycle tends to sacrifice fuel efficiency for higher CCs, as larger cylinders will deplete the amount of gas in the bike faster.
Conversely, a smaller CC number may generate less power, but likely increase the motorcycle’s miles per gallon. (This is also true if you opt for a scooter)
As of 2015 – All Motorcycles & Scooters will require a Motorcycle License.
