It’s generally assumed that when you reach retirement age, life starts to slow down. But not for mechanics David Anderson and Mathew Hine, who spent six months upgrading a 10 MPH mobility scooter into a record breaking dragster that officially hit a top speed of 107.6 MPH.
A little scooter isn’t exactly a vehicle that conveys a lot of status. That’s why you have to dress it up a little with something that really shows your position, like, say some big chromed mirrors. If you really want to do it right, like this guy, you could get a specially-trained dog-valet to ride with you, holding…
In Italian Vespa means wasp, and for 70 years, scooters like today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe candidate have been buzzing around cities all across the globe. Let’s see if this pink Piaggio also has a price that stings.
For some reason Restoration Hardware only sells a version of this sleek Roadster Scoot that accommodates kids aged two to four—not adults. So if you and your partner have ever thought about having or adopting kids, you’ve now got a perfectly good reason to expand your family.
As you can imagine, most scooter owner/operators are very interested in having the best possible exhaust note from those 250cc monsters. With exhaust pipe diameters about the size of an average drinking straw (possible boba-sized) this can be tricky.
Vespa has unlocked a market secret: people who want to get around on a super small motorcycle want it to look cute. That’s why “Vespa” is the only brand of scooter everyone’s heard of. Looks like Honda just might adopt that strategy themselves with this new EV-Cub, and I say they’re on to something.
These scrambler-style 50cc Honda Grom scooters won’t be very fast on-road. They won’t be motocross competitors. But holy crap do they look like fun. And since that’s the whole point of motorcycling, this might secretly be the ultimate bike.
If you believe a scooter should be made of lightweight aluminum instead of plastics and have Italian origins instead of Japanese, old Lambrettas and Vespas await you out there!
With a range of 10-15 miles, a top speed of 15 mph and a charging socket integrated into its holder for your smartphone the Mini Citysurfer Concept is an ingenious solution to the challenges of owning a car in an urban area.
At 8:30am, I fall in with the masses being herded into Las Vegas Convention Center for the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show. More than 135,000 people will pass through these limo-tinted doors before Saturday, and I'm told there's no way any one meager man can see everything that's inside. It's the…
We all know that scooters are incredibly popular in southeast and east Asia, but it's hard to understand just how popular they really are. Until you see this traffic jam.
So. Many. Scooters. If you like motorized bikes, then Taipei is the place for you. Well, unless you hate traffic, that is.
If I started telling you about a new all-wheel-drive, turbodiesel-powered off-roader, you'd probably think I was talking about a 4x4 truck or SUV, right? Wrong. Check out the RNT, a concept from Indian motorcycle company Hero that could be the only back-country survival tool a motorcycle adventurer would ever need.
If the only thing stopping you from riding around town on a Segway is, well, looking like someone riding around town on a Segway, this enhanced version might make you a little less hesitant about being seen in public on one. And it's all thanks to a handful of Vespa scooters that had to sacrifice their lives for this…
One of the things I like best about working at Jalopnik (other than Chili-Chuggin' Tuesdays) is that we'll happily cover almost any form of transportation. Cars, planes, trains, hovercraft, submarines, spaceships, whatever. Which is why I was able to test out the pre-production Acton M Mobility Scooter.
The 1980s were a weird time, what with its big hair and even bigger rock 'n' roll, but one of its greatest quirks was its pure, unbridled commercialism. People think Wall Street created an era, but that film was more a product of its time. And who better to sell a product from these times, than Lou Reed?
This sweet little electric scooter hits 30mph in seven seconds, has a 50 mile range and is made from... hemp?
When a Nissan Skyline GTS-T lines up with a mobility scooter, what's gonna be faster? The mobility scooter of course!
Watch this video to the end. You will not believe how bad this scooter rider is.
