This contest is fueled by the following news: Chinese scooters: A huge number of scooters are manufactured by Chinese companies, representing the local processing of old Japanese models as well as new designs based on them. Notable is the predominant of the four-stroke engines (but also two-stroke engines), similar in design from most manufacturers, but also greatly differing in quality of assembly and in set making parts from different brands, that manufacture externally indistinguishable models. Chinese scooters are made from more brittle plastic and have less durable motors, when compared to Japanese motors. In case of improper usage, Chinese scooters can start developing small defects, giving lots of troubles to the owner. Nonetheless, if properly used, Chinese scooters have a long service life. The cost of repairs, compared to Japanese models, is relatively less but the quality of the repair kits sometimes leaves much to be desired. Some pretty good decisions of the automobile industry of China the modification of the famous scooter "Honda Cub" (it was popular in the scooterette series). The manufacturing plant is "Chongqing Wonjan Motorcycles" The claimed service life of the engine before the first major overhaul is 20 000 - 30 000 km. The main criticism of the Chinese motor industry is inappropriate quality of their products; but statistically, many of these "critics" turn to scooters in a totally unacceptable way - not observing run-in, using "non-native" components, exceeding the scooter capabilities according to certificate etc. Load-carrier scooters: In India and East Asian countries, three-wheeled scooters are often used as small load-carriers and other types of commercial transport, being in fact, the embodiment of motorized rickshaws and touring taxis. The three-wheeler cabin versions can also be attributed to this market segment. The most popular load-carrier scooters are used in places with a critical degree of congestion on urban roads such as Delhi, Bangkok and Mumbai. Interesting facts: Due to the specific seating facility, this kind of transport is often referred to as "stools", "chairs" and even "toilet bowls". Scooters, subjected to engine tuning (or "sports" class) are called "Furious stools"; In city conditions, hiding from the police officers is easier on scooter because it is small and maneuverable and can be easily driven and maneuvered where a car or even a bike cannot go. On straight roads on scooters, it is useless to avoid police but if you can take advantage and drive on narrow paths, courtyards, where many closely positioned turns are found, then it is very difficult to overtake a scooter. These advantages of scooters are often used by British adolescents in different situations. The electric scooter is a two or three-wheeled vehicle, which uses an electric motor for moving. The "Water electric scooter" (variety of motor ship) and "Underwater electric scooter" is an electric transport means for moving on water and under water respectively. Power supplies: Rechargeable batteries or hydrogen fuel cells are used as a source of power in electric scooters. In the beginning of 2009, the vast majority of electric scooters used lithium-ion or lead-acid battery (inexpensive option). The average charging time required to fully charge the battery is 4 - 8 hrs. The distance which can be covered in a single charging, ranges from 30 to 150 km. Manufacturers: Most of the scooters and electric scooters are manufactured in China and Asia. They are used within the country. For example, in early 2009, about 22 million scooters were used by 85 million people in Vietnam. In 2008, about 100 000 electric scooters were sold in India. Around 21 million electric two-wheeler transport means were sold in 2008 in China. The production growth of electric scooters and an increasing number of manufacturers is currently taking place quite quickly in order to identify the leaders. Advantages and drawbacks: Advantages when compared with petrol scooter: Low noise level; Low operating costs (electricity is cheaper than petrol; no need for regular oil replacement etc.); Absence of road tax and parking fees (European Union and the U.S.); No release of combustion products into the atmosphere (environment-friendly if electricity is used, which is obtained from ecologically pure sources of energy); The possibility of using it in closed premises Drawbacks when compared to a petrol scooter: High initial price; "Small" distances in a single charging; Longer charging durations. History: The first mention of patents for electric scooters appeared in 1860. Experimental models appeared in 1911 (EM History: 1911 Popular Mechanics). The first mass-scale produced electric scooter was released by Peugeot in 1996 under the name Scoot'Elec. The power of this vehicle was 2.8 kWt (4 hp). In 2007, the motorcycle "Killacycle", using a lithium-ion battery, set a new world speed record for a distance of 1/4 mile - 7.824 sec (270 km / hr) in Phoenix, USA. The electric scooter is also a version of handicapped electric wheelchair. Particularly, Alexander Kashin is traversing the distance from Vladivostok to Moscow on this scooter. The electric scooter achieved huge popularity in the beginning of the 21st century.
