Scooters have come a long way since the days when they were nothing more than a skateboard with a steering pole attached to it. These days, you can buy scooters with gas or electric engines that are capable of going over 40 miles per hour. While scooters this fast are usually intended for racing purposes, there are still plenty of models out there that will get you around in style

Varieties of Extreme Scooters

The most advanced scooters on the market today are starting to offer two-speed shift drive systems. This allows for much higher speeds and reliability than you'll find on normal one-speed scooters. These high-end scooters also come with amazing features like disc breaks and forged aluminum rims. They are truly the best of the best.

If you're looking for something cool but not quite so over-the-top, you'll be able to find a nice gas or electric scooter that suits your style. Many scooters these days actually feature a small seat on the back, so you can stand up or sit down on your scooter, depending on your preference. They also feature headlights, which allow you to drive them in the evening and at night.

Gas scooters are a bit more powerful than electric scooters, so they are faster and also substantially louder. No matter which type of scooter you choose, just be sure that whoever is riding it is going to be safe. That means that the rider should always wear protective gear like a helmet, elbow pads and knee pads.
