With a gas scooter, you can get around, have fun, and spend much less on gas when compared to driving by car. Once you've decided to buy one, you've got to find the one that's best for you.

Here's a Top 10 list of the most widely acclaimed sit-down and stand-up gas scooters on the market.

ScooterX 49cc X-Racer

The ScooterX 49cc X-Racer Gas Scooter is a great entry-level stand-up model. It carries a powerful 49cc motor, suspension, and a number of other features.

Monster Moto 80cc Classic Youth Mini Bike

The Monster Moto 80cc Classic Youth Mini Bike from the '60's is back! Kids are having as much fun riding them today as they did back in the old days. Monster Moto has updated this classic trailblazer with 21st-century performance and safety features.

MotoTec Wheelman V2

A unique cross between a gas scooter and skateboard, the MotoTec Wheelman V2 comes in at number 8 on our Top Ten list. Slide your feet into the spokeless wheels, squeeze the cable connected controller, and away you go. This off-road gas scooter/skateboard hybrid is a wild ride. MotoTec has been manufacturing gas powered scooters since 2009.

X-Treme XG-575-DS

The XG-575-DS A-Blaze Signature Series gas scooter is a high-quality, low-priced option from X-Treme. This stand-up gas scooter is fitted with Puzey Design components, including 2-speed shifter transmission. A 50cc, 2 HP engine gets you to a top speed of 30+ miles per hour with the X-Treme XG-575-DS!

UberScoot 2x 50cc Gas Scooter

Puzey Design has been delivering high-quality, feature-rich, affordable gas scooters since 1998. The UberScoot 2x 50cc Gas Scooter is their latest endeavor. Prior to UberScoot, Puzey was responsible for successful product lines like Big Boy, EVO Powerboards, and BladeZ.

Go-Ped GSR Cruiser

If you're more interested in comfort than speed, the Go-Ped GSR Cruiser is the best ride for you. This is Go-Ped's commuter model. It's solidly built, durable and easy to maintain. The 29cc GPL290 engine is also quieter and therefore more neighbor friendly than the engine found on their racing models.


Not your conventional gas scooter, this sit-down model was inspired by pit bikes. The Go-Ped RIOT is an off-road scooter fitted with Go-Ped's 4.5 HP racing engine and revolutionary CIDLI suspension.

Go-Ped Super GSR46R

Go-Ped's premier racing scooter, Go-Ped Super GSR46R, takes the number three spot on our Top 10 list. It's compact, lightweight and lightning fast. A GP460RS racing engine powers this 35 lb. scooter to speeds up to 30 mph. Aftermarket mods drive you even faster. When you're standing on top of this gas powered scooter, no patch of pavement can survive your wraith.

Go-Ped Sport

This entry-level model is almost identical to the first gas scooter Go-Ped ever built. It remains a top seller today. The Go-Ped Sport is reliable, sturdy, lightweight and comes in at a fair price. It's driven by a simple and durable direct spindle drive system. The engine is light but powerful, and boasts a top speed of 22 miles per hour. This model is also available with a centrifugal clutch, see the GSR Sport.

Go-Ped Trail Ripper

This top-of-the-line, award-winning, stand-up gas scooter is famous for its patented Cantilevered Independent Dynamic Linkless Indespension (CIDLI) suspension system. It delivers an unbelievably smooth ride. As its name suggests, the Go-Ped Trail Ripper was born to tear through the off-road terrain. It's also fitted with the GP460RS racing engine and delivers a 30 mph top speed. A street version called the Interceptor is also available.

It's no mistake the Top 5 gas scooters on our list are all Go-Ped brand models. Go-Ped has been dominating the gas scooter market and racing scene since 1985. No other brand comes close to delivering their level of quality or performance.
