Though small vehicles are easy to park, most people reap the benefit by switching to scooters instead of investing in shrink-ray start-ups or sawing the bumpers off of their cars. Embrace carefree conveyances with today’s Groupon: for $2,400, you get a Buddy International 150cc Scooter at The Scoot Shop (a $3,199 value).
The Scoot Shop's array of personal people movers set rambles rolling, and its full-service garage keeps each scooter in roadworthy condition. Zip around avenues at up to 60 miles per hour on the Buddy International 150cc, which gobbles up pavement at the behest of its air-cooled 150cc 4-stroke engine. Driving an economic 90 miles per gallon, the International saves money for other types of fuel, freeing up dollars for revivifying iced coffee. An automatic transmission lets riders focus on the road ahead without the distraction of manual shifting, and the front disc brake combines with the rear drum break for precision stopping prowess. The International arrives clothed in one of three stunning color schemes: the Saint-Tropez steals a slice of sky with three shades of blue, the Pamplona’s burgundy and cream harkens back to Old World refinement, and the Italia’s green and cream comes ready to traverse a tree-lined street or camouflage itself in the middle of a key lime pie. Each new scooter comes with a two-year warranty and two years of roadside assistance.
