Blitz sells neither the most expensive or the cheapest scooters, we sell the middle brands where price & quality meet.

Dont buy an electric scooter!

       Electric scooters/E-Bikes go dead in 12 miles or less and require a 4 hour charge whereas a gas scooter can drive 80 miles and refill for $3 in 30 seconds. Escooters/Ebikes are also limited to about 20mph (which is an unsafe speed on both bike paths and city roads) while a 125cc scooter can hit 45mph with ease (its safer to keep up with traffic).

 

Consider the lack of suspension, tiny rims seizing on road cracks, unsafe standing posture, no brake lights, no storage, inadequate speed and running out of charge-having to push it to a wall outlet. Imagine no support for tires or tech issues because its some no-name, pop-up distributer you bought from the internet. Imagine not having to ride down sidewalks or lift the scooter over curbs as cars pass you. Imagine not having to take a long, indirect bike path, dodging dog walkers and pedestrians to get where you need to be. The solution is a gas scooter instead!

 

Electric scooters are slow, heavy, inconvenient, expensive, poorly designed and out of place on both bike paths and city roads. There is no market niche between a bicycle and a gas scooter. The 'last mile commuting solution' was a sales pitch. In reality, a plain bicycle is preferable up to about 2 miles -- for any other distance up to 20 miles away, a road legal motor-scooter with storage and brake lights is the solution. Don't try and argue it, I used to sell EVs and ride them. Its the same scam for the last 10 years. Many new distributers pop up and go under every season but not before scamming tons of people. It takes about 5 minutes and $10 to do your own oil change on a scooter, Im not sure why people are afraid of that. Its actually easier and cheaper to service a gas scooter than a bicycle or E-scooter.

 

Electric is not the future; do some math. Factoring in gasoline, oil changes and insurance coverage, a Gas Scooter costs about 8 cents a mile! Razors, E-Bikes and full size electric scooters cost 40 cents a mile! New cars are about 30 cents a mile. The idea that electric vehicles save money is a massive lie. Eventually that battery will need to be replaced and that is when it becomes crystal clear that the inconvenience of it all was not worth it.

 

Save yourself the hassle and buy a gas scooter to begin with; not a junky Chinese gas-scooter, or a hyper expensive Italian one. You can buy the Goldilocks Zone motorscooter brands (Taiwanese or Japanese, not Chinese --yes there is a huge difference). At Blitz, we sell ONLY the leading Taiwanese brands, not Chinese junk. Its sort of like buying a Trek or Cannondale bicycle over some flimsy Walmart bicycle. You dont have to spend $7000 on a Vespa. An amazing, durable, fuel injected scooter is half the price and can last over 30,000 miles (thats about 65 miles a week for 10 years!) It will of paid for itself multiple times over.
