Top 4 Commuter Scooters of 2008

It’s summer time and many people are looking for the latest and greatest commuter scooters. These are my personal top 4:

Gilera Runner ST

125cc, £2,699


“This is at the heart of cutting-edge-of-the-art engine, modern dashboard graphics and an anti theft immobiliser. Its sleek rear-view mirrors and streamlined-profile headlamp show it’s no design slouch either.”

Vespa S 125cc, £2,749

“The classic lines of the Vespa are as alluring as ever, and this Seventies-inspired model is perhaps its most desirable yet. It boasts market-leading performance, while offering a stable and robust ride. The seat is available in two versions: the more dynamic ‘Sport’ and the ‘ Touring’, with increased comfort for longer journeys.”

Piaggio X7 125cc, £2,599

“This distinctively designed scooter comes in lightweight design and agility with a liquid-cooled four-stroke engine with advanced four-valve cylinder heads, giving it unprecedented performance while conforming to all European emission standards. The fact that it’s also an elegant and smooth ride makes it particularly desirable.”

Peugeot Sum Up

125cc, £1,569

Peugeot sum up

“This is big on comfort and practicality as well as looks, with the broad two-person seat comfortable for both rider and passenger. It balances stability and maneuverability, the 220mm front-disc brake offering reliable stopping power. At only 115kg it’s also one of the lightest scooters in its class, meaning it won’t suck up too much fuel.
