Safety Information
Important Safety Information
Understanding the challenges that you will face when operating a scooter will greatly improve
your safety and enjoyment on the roads. There are many things that you can do to protect yourself when riding. You will find many helpful recommendations throughout this manual. The
following are a few points that we consider most important.
Always Wear Protective Gear
It is a proven fact that helmets significantly reduce the number and severity of head injuries.
Always wear helmets, eye protection, sturdy boots, gloves, and other protective gear when
riding.
Make Yourself Visible
Some drivers do not look for scooters while driving and are often unaware of their presence on
the road. To make yourself highly visible wear bright, reflective clothing while riding. Position
yourself in traffic lanes so other drivers can see you easily. Always signal before turning or changing lanes. Use your horn to alert others on the road.

Safety Information
Ride Within Your Limit
Pushing your limits is a common cause of scooter accidents. Never ride beyond your personal
abilities or faster than conditions warrant. Remember that alcohol, drugs, fatigue and inattention can significantly reduce your ability to make good decisions and to ride safely.
Keep Your Scooter In Safe Operation
For safe riding, it is important to inspect your scooter before every ride and perform recommended maintenance in accordance to the maintenance chart or when needed for safe operation.
Load Limit Guidelines
Your scooter has been designed to carry you and one passenger. When you carry a passenger,
you may notice some changes in acceleration and braking. Exceeding the weight limit or carrying an unbalanced load can seriously affect your scooter’s handling, braking and stability.
Improper modifications and poor maintenance can also reduce your safety.

Engine Break-in Period
The most important period in the life of your
scooter is the period between 0 to 500 miles.
For this reason we ask that you carefully read
the following recommendations on how to
properly operate and care for your scooter
during this critical time. Because various parts
of your engine adjust themselves to the
correct operating tolerances, prolonged full
throttle riding, or any condition that might
result in excessive stress or heat to the engine
should be avoided.
Keep the riding speed below 50 miles per
hour within the first 500 miles.
1. 0 - 100 miles:
Keep the prolonged throttle speed below
35 mph.
2. 100 - 200 miles:
Keep the prolonged throttle speed below
45 mph.
3. 200 - 500 miles:
Keep the prolonged throttle speed below
50 mph.
