You all know them, they are probably the ones you see the most on a daily basis: gasoline scooters. These vehicles are traditionally powered by a gasoline-powered internal combustion engine. They are generally more powerful than electric scooters, offering greater speed and range, making them suitable for longer trips or for travel on faster roads.
Negative points of these scooters: the exhaust (not the most ecological) and the refueling.
The modern touch
Increasingly popular in recent years, scooters have made a name for themselves on the main avenues of Paris. Thanks to their low environmental impact and relatively low operating costs, these vehicles are gradually making their mark on the two-wheeled market. They are powered by an electric motor driven by a rechargeable battery, which makes them quiet, ecological and economical to use. They are generally suitable for urban travel and short distances.
The perfect vehicle if you are looking for a perfect companion for your daily commute.

THE DARLING OF TEENAGERS
In the family of gas scooters, we find the 50cc scooters. These types of gasoline scooters are often used by teenagers, students and novice drivers because of their small size and low power. They are generally limited to a maximum speed of 45 km/h in many countries and often only require a specific driving license for 50cc scooters.
Great for short trips around town, but generally not suitable for longer distances or faster roads. So if you need transportation for short daily trips... you've found your companion!
This is getting serious!
Three-wheeled scooters, also known as trikes, are scooters that have three wheels instead of two (it's not easier).
The small advantage of these vehicles is theirstability compared to the usual two-wheelers. This feature is a real plus for less experienced riders or those looking for a more stable option. Some three-wheeled scooters also offer extra storage space and better stability when cornering, making them popular for longer trips or for users who need to carry luggage!
