South Pasadena, CA, November 16, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- The Go-Ped Sport gas scooter is now available in The UrbanScooters.com Marketplace. The Marketplace connects customers with the lowest price on thousands of transportation products across the web. The Sport is the first model manufactured by Go-Ped over twenty years ago. These many years later, the simplicity of design and product quality have allow it to remain as one of their top selling models.
The Go-Ped Sport offers many exciting features, including; 22 mph top speed, excellent torque for great hill climbing, reliability, efficiency, a simple direct friction drive system, 400 lbs. carrying capacity and solid Go-Active rubber tires.
The direct drive system on the Go-Ped Sport gas powered scooter removes the need for a centrifugal clutch, any drive gears and the chain. The simple direct drive system is so easy to use and efficient Go-Ped never changed it. The wheel that drives the motor is on top of the rear tire. When the scooter is stopped, the motor stops, too. To start moving, the rider "bump starts" the Sport to engage the motor. Bump start means push. This may sound like a lot of work, but it is an extremely powerful and efficient method to deliver power from the engine. The need for transmissions, chains, or clutches that drain power from the motor is eliminated. The Go-Ped Sport has found simplicity to be the key to its success. It set the bar so high, no other manufacturer could compete. It took new innovations from Goped itself to take stand-up scooter technology to the next level.
The Go-Ped Sport gas scooter is built different from other brand name scooters. Most brands come from China and offer low price, low quality product with lots of features. The quality varies. Some are good quality, but most are very poorly built. Goped's manufacturing process focuses on quality from start to finish. They build the Sport frame with a straight piece of 4130 Seamless Chromoly tubing which they then use a mandrel tube bender to configure the frame. That means no welding or crimping of the tubing. A durable powder coating technique is used to paint the frame. Most Chinese made scooters are built with cheap angle iron. They are welded, spray painted and covered up by a cheap plastic body. The difference in quality is significant.
Go-Ped brand scooters are made in the USA, by people with an extensive background in stand-up scooters and go-kart racing. Their knowledge translates into products that are both high performance, extremely durable and ready to provide years of reliable fun and transport.
