Consumer Reports on scooters

A disappointing Consumer Reports’ video comparison of scooters accompanies a review in their February issue. Consumer Reports is a trustworthy source, and their findings are accurate, but you just can’t sum up the wide variety of scooters available right now in a 3:45 video. (Thanks for the tip, Matt.)

If you’re looking for a more detailed report, Nathaniel Salzman just updated his Buyers’ Guide, which features very good basic advice. 2sb’s “So You’re buying a Scooter?” doesn’t compare models at all, but there’s some good advice there. ScooterDiva has a good Buyers’ Guide with specs for current models from the top makers, but no hands-on info. Also: POC’s Phil Waters sent us a great writeup comparing many highway-legal scooters, we’ll post that soon.
