The short answer to this question is an undeniable ‘Yes’.
At Hunted Scooters we are often asked by prospective owners;
How fast our Hunter Scooter goes?
How much does it cost to fill up a tank and what range will that give?
How much is costs to register and insure each year?
These are all very valid questions and let me start answering them with our vision when starting our business. We wanted to offer Australian riders a uniquely styled scooter, that not only offered the owner and alternative transport solution but the opportunity to reduce their carbon footprint while allowing their individuality and style to be represented in the form of their vehicle.
Top Speed and Fuel Consumption:
The speed is an important question; if I’m going to commute I want to know that I can go on a highway or a cross city tunnel.
Our scooters can do the speed limit in Australia 110klm/hr, at this speed their rated 2.1ltr/100klms fuel consumption is slightly increased. But when cruising between the average speed limits of 60-80klm/hr the engine performs very efficiently. When considering the average speed through traffic is 20-30klms/hr the fuel efficiency is fantastic.
A 5.5 litre fuel tank can go as far as 130-140klms urban travelling and when tested on the Royal National Park road from Loftus to Thirroul without the stop start of city traffic we have been able to squeeze close to 200klms. That’s a $7 full tank at today’s petrol prices.
To keep your 150cc scooter registered annually this can depend on your license, age and where you live in Australia, but working on an inner city suburb in Sydney on a full riders license that cost is $146 for a green slip through QBE and $150 for registration a total of $296, with standard plates
Now that you have the running cost it’s good to factor in services at approximately $250 every 2000klms or every 6 months, time saved in transit is invaluable and parking in most places is free within the allotted time limit.
Let’s wrap this up!
So for a fill up of $7 annual rego under $300 and parking mostly for free! The verdict is in… A scooter is a much more economical transport solution and is a heap more fun to commute and offers the rider an ability to reconnect to the world around them in a disconnected world.
