SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
RIDING SCOOTERS IS FUN ONLY IF YOU PUT SAFETY AS YOUR TOP PRIORITY.
WARNING: Before you start operating your scooter:
• Be sure you read this owner manual completely and understand all operating
features.
• Take sufficient time training with safe and proper riding technique.
• Practice until you are knowledgeable and comfortable with your scooter.
• Knowledgeable with all road signs.
Failure to follow any SAFETY INSTRUCTION could cause severe injury or even death to
the scooter operator, passenger or a bystander.
Protective Gear
Riding a scooter leaves the rider exposed. Therefore, wearing appropriate protective gear
can prevent or diminish injuries from accidents.
1. An Approved Helmet
The majority of serious motorcycle injuries and deaths are the direct result of a head injury.
Therefore, drivers and passengers should always wear an approved helmet to prevent or
reduce the chance of head injury.
6
An approved helmet needs to:
• Meet U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and state standards. In addition
with labels from the Safety Helmet Council of America, the American National
Standard Institute (ANSI), or the Snell Memorial Foundation to assure the integrity
of the product.
• Fits snugly on your head.
• Have no obvious defects such as cracks, loose padding or frayed straps.
2.

3.

•
Eye and Face Protection
A plastic face shield can help prevent accidents by guarding the face from debris,
allowing the rider to devote full attention to the road.
Goggles can protect your eyes in the same manner. Never use eyeglasses or
sunglasses in place a face shield or goggles.
Clothing
Bright clothing should be worn by the driver so as to be easily seen by other
motorists.
Jacket and pants should cover your arms and legs completely, but not too loose to
flap in the wind or catch on the levers or wheels which could result in an accident.
7
•
•
•
Leather or heavy denim clothing is preferred as these materials help to prevent or
reduce abrasion.
Boots or shoes should be high enough to cover your ankles and sturdy enough to
provide support.
Gloves give you a better grip and help protect your hands from the elements.
Safe Riding
• Keep enough distance from the other vehicles around you as this gives you time to
react.
• Ensure that you have a driver’s license with correct classification to ride this scooter
in your state.
• Always observe the rules of the road. Observe the posted speed limit, and signal
your turns well in advance.
• Know your limits. Do not go faster then you are able to control. Always travel at a
speed that is proper for the terrain, operating conditions, and your experience.
• Always inspect your scooter each time you use it to make sure it is in safe operating
condition.
• Always follow the inspection and schedule maintenance procedures described in
this manual.

•
•
•
•
•
Test your brakes after operation in wet conditions. If necessary, apply the brakes
several times to let friction dry out the linings.
Never attempt wheelies, jumps and other stunts, as these could cause damage to
the scooter and cause a loss of control.
Always keep both hands on the handlebars and feet on the floor board during
operation.
Never consume alcohol or drugs before or while riding scooter.
Limit the travel distance to avoid fatigue that can affect your performance.
Being seen
Many scooter accidents are caused by car drivers who do not see scooter riders on the
road. Therefore you need to ensure to follow these guidelines:
• Wear bright clothing to increase visibility. Bright orange, yellow or green jackets or
vests and brightly colored helmet can help others see you.
• Always use turn signals when you are planning to turn or merge to main road and
turn it off after you have made your turn.
• Flash brake lights whenever you are going to slow down more quickly or where
others may not expect you are going to slow down.
• Stay out of blind spot of other motorists.
• When you come to an intersection, move to the portion of your lane that will bring
you into another driver’s field of sight at the earliest possible moment.

Carrying Passengers & Loading
WARNING:
• This scooter is rated for 2 passengers; total weight of the rider and the passenger
must not exceed 330 lbs.
• Attach the load securely since a loose load can catch in the wheel or rack causing
skidding.
You should avoid carrying passengers or large loads until you have gained sufficient
experience riding alone. Extra weight changes handling, stability, braking performance, turns,
acceleration and deceleration. To carry passengers safely you must:
1. Instruct the passenger before you start.
• Must wear a helmet.
• Get on the motorcycle after you have started the engine.
• Sit as far forward as possible without crowding the driver.
• Hold firmly to your waist, hips, or belt or passenger handle.
• Keep both feet on the pegs at all time, even when the motorcycle is stopped.
• Keep legs away from the muffler.
• Stay directly behind you, leaning as you lean.
• Avoid any unnecessary talking or motion.
10
2. Adjust your riding technique with passenger
• Go slower
• Start slowing earlier as you approach a stop.
• Maintain a larger cushion of space ahead and to the sides.
• Wait for larger gaps when you want to cross, enter, or merge with traffic.
A scooter is not really designed to carry cargo. However, small loads can be carried safely
if they are positioned and fastened properly.
3. The rear luggage rack can carry 11 lbs max. The forward glove box can carry 6 lbs. The
compartment under the seat can carry 22 lbs max. No more than 39 lbs. total.
4. Keep the load low and distribute the load evenly. An uneven load can cause the
motorcycle to drift to one side.
Gasoline & Exhaust Fumes
WARNING: Gasoline is highly flammable and exhaust fumes are poisonous:
• Turn off engine before refueling.
• not to spill any gasoline on the engine, exhaust system or the plastic body.
• Do not refuel while smoking or near any open flame.
11
•
•
•
•
Do not operate your scooter in a closed area as the exhaust fumes may cause loss
of consciousness or death within a short time.
Do not park the scooter near any flammable source.
If you swallow gasoline, inhale gasoline vapor or spill gasoline into your eyes, see
doctor immediately or call American Association of Poison Control Centers at 1800-222-1222 for assistance.
If you spill gasoline on your clothes, change and wash the affected area immediately
with soap.
