Notes:
Each scooter is given a use rating ( Suitable to be used for) , a quality/ durability score and an expected maintenance score. Use these numbers for comparison purposes between scooter brands and models. They are not intended as an absolute rating.

Use:

hobby - a general use rating.
daily - high enough quality for daily use and or reliable transportation.
race - suitable for extreme use, generally higher maintenance/wear characteristics.
race/professional - extremely high powered, suitable for pro riders

Quality / Durability:

these numbers are an indicator of quality of components and materials used, level of engineering, overall fit and finish etc. higher numbers are better.

Maintenance:

This number is a relative rating based upon user feedback, number of calls/sales of parts, and our experience gained since 2002. These ratings can vary greatly depending on the rider.
Please note: race rated scooters are expected to have higher periodic maintenance due to expected use and higher wear and tear from that use. lower numbers are better.

Special Notes:

*(t) foldable with tools
*(m) martin monster - from what we understand these are scooters are no longer in full production. it may be possible to order a new one still but we would recommend purchasing a scooter from a company that is actively involved in making scooters.
*(b) bladez and tanaka scooters have not been made for a number of years (4+) new scooters on the market are old production/ closeout/ or refurbished. Early models were made in taiwain and are better quality, later models were made in china. parts for bladez and tanaka scooters are becoming scarce. there is not a full parts list available any longer. this includes some easily broken and critical parts. we would not recommend purchasing one of these scooters at this time at any price.
*(g) newstar / star / g-scooter etc. - scooters under these brands are possibly being imported in very limited quantities. they are inferior product, we would not recommend one of these for purchase unless you would like a project to work on.
*(d) D-rider has extremely limited exposure in the market, they have not been able to supply us with information other than what you see on the 1/2 dozen or so webstores which are offering them. they use a fair amount of proprietary parts so replacements might be an issue down the road. We doubt this scooter is a "replacement" for Bladez scooters as claimed/implied.
