Many gas scooter manufacturers have come and gone in the last 10 years. It has become a very competitive industry; especially since the influx of cheaper Chinese brand clones entering the US market. That said, the quality gap between US-made and Chinese-made scooters still tips heavily in favor of American-brand scooters. It’s no surprise that 10 of the top 10 gas scooters are all scooters made in the USA.
1.EVO 2X Power Board
The Evo 2X is a third generation petrol scooter from Puzey Design. Evo brand powerboards are the highest quality products on the market and the fastest scooters ever built. The 2-speed gearbox is a unique and patented transmission system that is the heart of the Evo 2X. Is he world’s first two-speed scooter.
Until now, the range of applications for power boards and scooters has been limited by low-power, low-rev engines. Now, with the 2-speed gearbox, you can have the power starting off or going up a hill in first gear and have top speed in second gear. Steep hill climbs for riders over 250 pounds are no problem for the Evo 2X.
Another technological advance found on the Evo 2X is the patented Cam-Link suspension. It is a true suspension system that offers a smooth ride, while offering excellent resistance when landing after jumps. Once you try it, you will simply see that there is nothing like it. This suspension is the strongest and most robust front suspension in the industry today.
The Evo 2X is one of the most reliable scooters ever produced. The T6 aluminum and steel frame is nearly indestructible. There have been reports of Evo scooters going 1300 miles without even replacing a belt.
Things you’ll never have to replace include:
The frame and suspension – Although this scooter is largely designed with lightweight aluminum, it is reinforced with steel where needed. This makes the frame and structure of the scooter almost indestructible.
The Engine: The Active 50 is not only an impressive power plant, it’s also one of the most reliable engines available. A properly maintained engine running on 91+ octane fuel with a proper mix (1:40 – 1:50) will last the life of the scooter.
The Deck – The Evo 2X comes with one of the strongest decks available for a scooter. Although it is aluminum, it is incredibly scratch resistant and will never bend or crack.

Utilizing the patented Trail Ripper adjustable suspension system front and rear, it offers riders great off-road capabilities with 6″ of travel at each end.

4. Martin’s Monstrous Beast
The Martin Monster Beast is the most powerful MMI production scooter available. It comes standard with a 52cc Mitsubishi engine that has nearly twice the torque of RC230 powered scooters. Each beast is hand built by a single technician.

5. Go-Ped GTR Roadster
The Goped GTR Roadster is a budget version of the Goped GTR46i. With the exception of the smaller Chung Yang GPL290 engine and welded T-bar handlebars, the GTR Roadster is the exact same scooter.
This cool scooter features the race-proven, patented, adjustable and bulletproof CIDLI 6″ GTR full suspension frame. For that, we’ve fitted the incredibly light, yet powerful and quieter GPL290 engine with TT tires and gear ratios. of the GSR Cruiser sprocket.

A cross-drilled front disc brake provides quick and sure stopping power. The Martin Monster Super Shocker’s power comes from the Komatsu Zenoah RC230 engine with 2.5 .
7. EVO 2 power board
The Evo 2 is a third generation petrol scooter from Puzey Design. Evo brand powerboards are the highest quality products on the market and the fastest scooters ever built. The 2-speed gearbox is a unique and patented transmission system that is the heart of the Evo 2X. Is he world’s first two-speed scooter.
The Evo 2 is a high performance two speed scooter launched as a cheaper version of the Evo 2X. Unlike its big brother, the Evo 2 has no front suspension and no scrub board to protect the area under the bed. Instead of the impressive Active 50, the Evo 2 sports the smoother Active 40 engine.
Since the Evo 2 has the two-speed transmission from the Evo 2X, it still runs impressively despite the lack of performance in the Active 40 motor. If the Evo 2 is used solely for hauling, the Active 40 will provide plenty of power along with the two-speed transmission, but if any real speed is desired, the first step should be an engine upgrade.
That said, the Evo 2 is one of the most reliable scooters ever produced.
8. Go-Ped Super GSR46R
The Go-Ped GSR46R is one of the most powerful street scooters released by Go-Ped. It is intended to be a street-only scooter as it lacks any form of frame-based suspension. When the GSR46R was released, it was marketed by Go-Ped as the fastest production scooter in the world. Although the claim is debatable, it very well could have been true due to the high speeds possible with the large R460 engine.
Built on the legendary GSR40Tsi – Go-Ped Interceptor -, the Super GSR46R is powered by the same engine as the intrepid Trail Ripper GTR46. Equipped with a patent pending 6/76 geared centrifugal clutch chain drive mechanism, the GP460RS engine delivers 4.2HP and 2.31 ft-lbs of torque with a redline of 17,500, providing excellent performance at high and low speeds.
