If I haven't alluded to it enough yet, I want to state this clearly: the Razor Ultra Pro is the best scooter for the money for beginner riders. If your kid is just starting out, make the jump to the Ultra Pro as soon as you can financially make the investment.
Motor scooters are a fun and gas-friendly transportation alternative and drive easier than motorcycles. Scooters became popular in Italy after World War II and today can be found all over the world. Finding the best scooters for the money involves researching the best scooter makers. Experts generally suggest sticking with scooters made from trusted brands, rather than the many smaller brands who offer cheaper prices but poorer quality.
