Why are scooters and mopeds so popular?

A moped is classed as anything under 50cc, while a scooter is a specific style of motorbike, usually with a step-through frame and small wheels. Such bikes can be a great option for young riders and many other people - they can be stylish, economical, speedy for commuting and urban travel, and more environmentally friendly than a lot of other vehicles, some capable of achieving fuel efficiency figures of much more than 100mpg. Bear in mind that mopeds for 16-year-olds are limited to 30mph and cannot be taken on motorways.
To get a moped or scooter insurance quote, follow the links and complete our straightforward forms with the basic personal information of the rider(s), the details of the bike to be covered, and the type of use it will be put to.
