While access to a mature, public transportation infrastructure is nice, over time the filth & noise & stench & rats & all the deplorably rude sexually harassing weirdos with questionable personal hygiene you're packed in like sardines with begins to lose its charm.
Perhaps you'd like to expand your physical range beyond the limitations of public transport.
Maybe you'd just like to turn your commute into a pleasant part of the day, rather than a rugby scrum. Imagine, instead of pushing & shoving for a spot on the train, your morning will start with that picture perfect skyline from practically every NYC movie. & air as fresh as it gets in this town. Wouldn't that be nice?
Well, look no further my friend, for your answer is here.
While it's claimed this scooter has a top speed of 61 mph, that's likely optimistically generous, but 45 mph is realistic, and with the constant traffic, this scooter can be taken on the highway. If you dare.
70 mpg is a realistic number, which means if your daily commute is 10 miles each way, you'll make 6 trips for less than the cost of 1 ride on the subway (gasoline is currently about $2.41 per gallon, while one Metrocard swipe is $275)!
If on average you're swiping 500 times a year (5 work days a week, * twice a day, * 50 weeks in a year), and it costs $2.75, that's $1,375 per year. With this scooter here, that expense will come down to less than $500 - that includes fuel ($90 per year), maintenance (oil changes & whatnot), insurance ($100 for basic liability if you're over 30 years old), etc.
Think about all the time you'll save! This thing should cut your commute time at least in half. And, you can make stops! Imagine picking up a bag of groceries at Fairway, without having to shlep them home in your hands like a peasant!
Has the inaccessibility and/or lack of public transport ever stopped you from going somewhere or doing something you wanted to?
Have you just had enough of being beholden to the fairy tale, make-believe schedules the MTA puts up to taunt the public with a completely imaginary schedule?
It's time to take control of your destiny! And this scooter is just the thing!

The scooter's 150cc air-cooled, four-stroke, carbureted engine has no problem negotiating the hills on campus roads.... The scooter kept up nicely with traffic. Its four-stroke engine also is nice and quiet; a pedestrian asked me at one stop if it was electric powered.
