Street legal mopeds and scooters are an ideal alternative to gas guzzling cars. These lightweight machines pack enough power to get most riders from point a to point b without breaking the bank in most cases.
Another perk is long-term savings. Shoppers in the market for an adult moped may notice the scarce amount of fuel they pay for, which typically occurs in gas scooters thanks to the vehicle not being overloaded with weight. Mopeds in South Carolina also only require a moped license or a standard drivers license, so no motorcycle license is required!
Now, let’s combine and review these two benefits. Little money required upfront to move about town in a fast manner, and fewer dollars spent on gas over time. Sounds good right?
Well, guess what? These vehicle investment worthy properties are exactly why many cheap mopeds are for sale on the market these days. Let’s take a look at the hottest moped and scooter brands out today so you can start racking up the savings as well!
Bintelli Scooters and Mopeds
Bintelli’s founder was the first person in the USA to import gas scooters from China. The Bintelli brand of mopeds was created to give Charleston Scooter shoppers (and those all around the world) an affordable means of transportation without cutting corners on quality!
Bintelli Scooters include a wide variety of upgraded components including name brand belts, carburetors, and batteries. They also use LED or Halogen light bulbs to ensure you are nice and visible to other cars on the road!
One of the reasons Bintelli Mopeds are so popular in Charleston is their starting price point. A 49cc Charleston Moped begins at only $999 in the Bintelli line up of scooters and mopeds! You can view all of their available models by clicking here.
Adly Moto Scooter and Mopeds
In case you are not familiar with the Adly brand, this vehicle manufacturer is based in Taiwan. When they started out in 1978, Adly Moto mainly produced motorcycles. Since then, the Taiwanese manufacturer expanded their production to include scooters, ATVs, and quad bikes.
Adly prides themselves on making scooters look sharp and almost like a motorcycle in some cases. This aesthetic charm combined with major fuel savings and a powerful 50cc engine is definitely worth dishing out big bucks for. Not that you have to.
The benefit of an Adly Scooter is its powerful two stroke motor. With top speeds around 45mph, you’re able to easily keep up with traffic.
There’s also a strong market for used Adly Mopeds in the Charleston area. A good portion of used Adly scooters are under two grand. That said, you may be a bit hesitant to purchase a second hand black moped, even if it is of the Adly brand. After all, there is no point in investing in something that is just going to stop working a few miles down the road.
Due to this, we would advise shoppers looking at scooters for sale to be leery of those over 10,000 miles. At this point in a motor scooter’s lifespan, the battery or other parts will likely need to be replaced. So be sure to factor in these extra expenses when purchasing a used one.
However, if you are buying a brand new gas scooter with a seat, the Adly brand is one to be on the lookout for.
Vespa Gas Mopeds
Class, sophistication, and a world-renowned brand. Those keywords are frequently associated with the Vespa brand. However, most people are not familiar with the history of this scooter. See, this particular motor scooter is made by Piaggio, an Italian manufacturer.
They started producing motor scooters approximately 70 years ago, and since then, Vespas have made their way into the hearts of many. Or at least their minds. See, this iconic brand is movie and animators go-to vehicle.
But putting fame aside for a second, Vespas actually live up to the hype. On average, Vespas can get over 30,000 miles, which make them a delightful investment, especially when fuel savings are factored in.
That said, Vespas should not be confused with the Wasp 50. Although Vespa does mean “wasp” in Italian, the two are not the same. Be sure to keep that in mind when looking at mopeds for sale.
