Yeah, motorcycles are fun, but they're also incredibly practical when it comes to commuting. What's even more practical for commuting than a motorcycle? That's right, a scooter. They have all the traffic-busting abilities of bikes, with added ease of use, weather protection, comfort, and underseat storage.

These are some of the best scooters currently available at


BMW C650GT, £5695

Suzuki GSX-R1000 K5 motorcycle for sale

MCN says

“BMW's maxi-scooter is a great option if your riding environments are varied. It's got the size, speed and comfort to feel right at home and the motorway, but it's not too big that it struggles in town. The engine is a peach and provides plenty of useable torque for quick getaways.”

Piaggio Vespa GTS300, £3999

5 cracking litre sportsbikes

MCN says

“If you prefer your scooters a little more stylish, then the GTS300 is for you. The perky 300cc engine is perfect for city riding and returns 70mph. It's way more basic than maxi-scooters like the BMW above or the Suzuki Burgman, but that's not why you buy a Vespa. You buy a Vespa to look undeniably cool.”

Suzuki Burgman 400, £3295

BMW S1000RR motorcycle for sale

Seller says

“Suzuki's legendary Burgman is the Rolls Royce of scooters. Just look at that enormous seat! The Burgman is the polar opposite of the light and nippy Vespa. The Burgman is all about comfort and refinement. The huge seat is a great place to be and while the scooter is a little on the big and heavy side for filtering, it's right at home on the motorway.”

Honda Integra 700, £4795

Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade for sale

Seller says

“For people that don't really want a full-on scooter. The Honda Integra has larger wheels, so it handles more like a traditional motorcycle, no underseat storage and uses the same engine and frame as the NC700 range of motorcycles. It's got a great, engaging engine but when it comes to practicality it can't hang with proper scooters.”
