Whether you’re using your moped or scooter for commuting or leisure, it’s important you have the correct level of cover. Moped and scooter insurance often tends to cost less than other types of motorbike cover due to the fact that scooters and mopeds have low power engines and they’re often cheaper to buy and repair!
For peace of mind, you can add additional products and cover to your moped and scooter insurance such as Legal Expenses cover, Personal Accident (PA) cover, PA with Helmet and Leathers cover and RAC breakdown for motorbikes.
A scooter is a specific type of motorbike: containing an engine that’s 50cc or above, plus what’s known as a ‘step-through’ where there’s space for your feet to sit together. A Vespa is popular and iconic scooter that has a stylish shape and often features multiple wing mirrors. Vespas now have a cult status thanks to films like Quadrophenia and its links with the mod subculture. Scooters come with 125cc engines, which are perfect for commuters in cities looking to nip through rush-hour traffic.
A moped is any motorbike under 50cc, which tends to have maximum speed limit of 28mph. Boasting great fuel efficiency, mopeds are useful for commuting and particularly suitable for city riding. They’re often a popular choice for younger people – especially 16-year-olds, who are legally allowed to ride a motorbike below 50cc.
