Scooter vs Motorcycle: Which One is Better for You?

What Are the Differences Between Scooters and Bikes?

Parameters

Scooter

Bikes

Usability

Ideal for shorter distances.

Meant for longer distances.

Convenience and Comfort

Smaller structure, gearless feature, ease of manoeuvring and lightweight framework.

Bigger structure, high engine capacity, bigger fuel tanks, shock absorbers, and powerful headlamps.

Price

Generally lower than motorcycles.

Higher than scooters.

Ease of Learning

Easy to learn for beginners as they usually pack in an automatic transmission system.

Harder to learn because of their manual transmission system.

Fuel Efficiency or Mileage

Scooters usually give you less mileage than bikes.

Motorcycles can produce higher mileage even with the same engine capacity.

Engine Size

Engine displacement of top scooters can be around 80-150cc.

Engine displacement of top bikes available in India can go all the way up to 1000cc.

Wheel Stability

Scooters do not provide enough wheel stability as they have smaller tyres.

Larger tyres and longer wheelbase of motorcycles provide higher stability in high-speed as well as on rough surfaces.

Speed and Performance

Scooters have a lower top speed as compared to bikes.

Motorcycles can produce higher top speed owing to their larger wheels and engine..

Storage Space

Every scooter brings along an adequate storage space under the seat.

Bikes come with little to almost no storage space.

Frequency of Refuelling

The smaller fuel tank of scooters holds less fuel which makes you refuel them frequently.

Larger fuel tank of motorcycles allows you to ride for longer distance without worrying about refuelling.

Mobility

Its smaller wheelbase allows better turning and manoeuvring.

Longer wheelbase of a motorcycle does not allow preciseness to manoeuvre and turn at a low speed.

Safety

Scooters are safer because of their low top speed.

Bikes are considered less safe due to their much higher top speed.

Maintenance

The simple design and mechanism of a scooter do not need much maintenance.

A motorcycle has a more complex mechanism that costs more to maintain.
