Scooter Warranty and Country of Origin Guide


If you're reading this, you've probably already decided to get a scooter. Awesome! Congrats! If you're still unsure of what scooter to get, below is a handy guide for determining the differences between all the brands out there. 

For scooters, there are two main things to look at when purchasing: Warranty and Country of Origin.

Warranty greatly dictates the level of backing the manufacturer has in their product. In essence, it shows how much they believe in their product. Warranties can be parts and labor, or for parts only. Warranties cover manufacturer defects, and never cover crash damage, neglect, scheduled maintenance, theft, etc.

Country of Origin dictates the overall quality of a scooter. Taiwan produces some of the best quality scooters in the world, on the same level as Japan and Italy. China is also catching up. The most important things to pay attention to with Chinese scooters is the factory where they're being made, the stability of the importer, and again the warranty!

As a note, "comprehensive" or "tire-to-tire" coverage means that all non-wearable components of a bike are covered under warranty. Non-wearable components are any item that does not wear naturally as the scooter is ridden, such as but not limited to: transmission belts, engine oil, gear oil, cables, light bulbs, brake pads, paint finishes, chains, racks, brake fluid, tires, and tubes. These items must be replaced periodically during scheduled maintenance.

Anyway, let's dive in! Each brand is labeled separately below with where the parts came from, where the scooters are made, and a quick summary about each brand.
