By Alvin Saldivar

Nothing can compare the thrill of riding a newly bought gas scooter. The feeling is one of exhilaration and thrill. The driver can sense the freedom that comes from riding on an open road. This article will explain the two basic aspects of gas powered scooters - what it is and how it works.

What it is?

Gas powered scooters are scooter that use gas as fuel for their engines. Majority of gas-powered scooters have automatic gear transmission system. These are also called as variable transmission machines. The manual gear transmission scooters are also available which have the gearshift lever and the corresponding clutch incorporated into the handlebar itself.

Gas powered scooter engines have piston displacement ranging from 49cc to 250cc. These displacements are smaller than that of other motorcycles. The engines are available in two types - two stroke cycles and four stroke cycles. The two stroke engines are much faster, having quicker acceleration and are of simple build with easy maintenance. The four stroke versions have complicated build, slower acceleration but have good fuel efficiency. The chief reason for manufacturers to opt for manufacture of four stroke gas powered scooters is to meet the strict emission norms that are getting every stricter.

How does it work?

Gas powered scooters come with manual kick-start or automatic electric start. Many scooters come with both electric start facility and manual kick-start. Most of them have automatic transmissions. To ride them one just has to start the scooter and twist the acceleration grip and lo! You are on your way. To slow down simply release the throttle grip. In many, two-stroke gas powered scooters; you do not have to premix lubricating oil with gas. They have a separate oil container and automatic lubricating system, which takes away the hassle of premixing the fuel. Lubrication is done automatically in the carburetor itself or in gas tank.

Gas powered scooters are popular all over the world as urban and rural means of road transportation. They are easy to use, easy to maintain and have lesser legal restrictions in most countries. They permit easy embarking and disembarking for the riders and hence are a favorite among women riders.
