Most scooters have rear wheel drive, front wheel steering, and can achieve speeds of up to four miles per hour. As time passes the technology continues to improve. Power seats, flip-back arms, adjustable bases, attractive colors, faster charging batteries, and more powerful batteries are the main scooter enhancements we have noticed over the years.
