Spruce Up Your Scooter

By: Barney Garcia

Scooters are the most common form of two wheelers and are a safe mode of conveyance for those who cannot afford the luxury of four wheelers. So what is it about the scooters that make them so desirable over their other counter parts? Well, technological advancements these days have been successful in converting a simple scooter to a glorified two- wheeler. Not to forget, the various add-ons and upgrades that have elevated the position of scooters to a far more respectable level.

The scooter world has undergone a major evolution and this has resulted in the origination of motor scooters, electric scooters, mobility scooters and so on. The upgrades available for the scooters mentioned above are specific to each scooter and may be available with the manufacturer or other retailers that he might suggest. Arm-rests, cushions, baskets are some add-ons that can greatly increase the appeal of scooters while motors, engines, tyres and brakes are those accessories which can enhance its functionality and performance.

Baskets, lockable trunks, handle bar grips, mirrors, seat covers, kid's seat, extra battery charger are some of the extras that you can add on to your scooter.

However it is always recommended that you buy your scooter from a reputed dealer and ensure that all its accessories are covered by a warranty. This ensures that if the scooter parts suffer any wear and tear during the usage they can be easily replaced without you having to spend a fat sum on them. Moreover buying accessories from a genuine dealer will also guard you against buying duplicate parts, which are rampant all over the market at cheaper prices.

Before buying any upgrades for your scooter always mention your model number to the dealer so that he is able to supply you with only those parts that will be compatible with your scooter. Buying mismatched parts would mean a wasteful expenditure since some dealers adhere to very strict exchange policies and don't readily want to exchange the parts that have once been sold.

To ensure that all your scooter parts and accessories are in a good condition remember to get them serviced at regular intervals. This will be helpful in bringing to your notice those parts that need to be immediately replaced.

So if you already own a scooter and are thinking of all the ways and means to spruce it up, then go the stores to find out about the latest add-ons and accessories that can add a touch of class to your possession.
