A bit of guidance
- First of all you need to ask yourself what you will use the scoota for. Think about the roads you’ll be using and the speed of the other road users.
- It will help to use the guide below to narrow down your choice. Then, the best bit, you can then think about the style of scoota you like!
- Maximum speeds are a guide only and are affected by load and weather conditions.
- Extended and continuous operation should be around 80 to 85% of the maximum speed capability and maximum speed reserved for intermittent bursts.
- 50cc scootas (mopeds) are speed limited to 50km/h by law and allow car licence holders in Qld, WA, NT and SA to ride on a car licence.
- Your local Scoota dealer also has a wealth of information and good advice when selecting a scoota to suit your needs.
