Yeah, but isn't that mostly because of gas costs and taxation on cars? Those videos show an urban setting and I'll bet parking costs are nuts for 4 wheeled vehicles. It would seem that having a small scoot would be the only 'smart' transportation choice.

If I see another scoot on my commute, that's saying something. Granted, my ride is only 8 miles each way. Plenty of idiot drivers though.......

That sure would take all the fun out of riding a scooter. Can't imagine what the air would smell like as well.

Wow.

The first things that occur to me watching those are:


This would sap every bit of joy out of riding.

Owning a scooter repair shop might be a lucrative business over there.

Now I understand why all the PCX accessories seen to come from Taiwan.

Air quality must be impressive.
