Gasoline Powered Street Scooters
Gasoline Motor Scooters, Pros & Cons:
The early motor scooters used the ubiquitous 2-stoke, 47 or 49cc gasoline engine. This little powerhouse first put the putt-putt into millions of Euro-scooters and then even more Japanese, Korean, Taiwanese and Chinese scooters in the years since. Later upgraded and improved into the common 149cc, and even 249cc editions; most gas scooter engines are now of a lower emissions 4-stroke variety.
The greatest advantage of the gasoline engine is the same advantage that it has always had -- pure speed and horsepower. The absolute superiority of the internal combustion engine cannot be denied when torque and acceleration are the determining factors. However in these more enviro-conscious times, the (relative) pollution, noise and dependence on expensive fossil fuels can also be seen as a liability for many people. For those folks, the greener electric motor offers an alternative.
