Yamaha 2007 C3 Scooter

Yamaha 2007 C3 Scooter

With gas prices going up and up, scooters are a great alternative vehicle for in-town travel. The latest one we're looking at is the Yamaha 2007 C3 ($2000). A liquid-cooled, three-valve four-stroke engine keeps you running for a long time on just 1.2 gallons of gas, while the old-school "box" design does more than just look great — the underseat storage compartment holds up to nine gallons of gear. Add to the mix a motorcycle type fork and push-putton starting, and you've got a fine-looking vehicle that will get you around without breaking your bank account. [Thanks, Jon!]

  • 2006 Victory Hammer

    There are few options in between a sporty Asian crotch rocket and a Harley Davidson hog, but the 2006 Victory Hammer (starting at $16,900) slides right in there with its killer custom chopper looks and performance. It boasts a 100 CI Freedom V-Twin engine with 6-speed transmission, a huge 250 mm rear tire with a super-wide fender covering it, dual front Brembo brakes, and an aggressive riding V-bar. It doesn't matter if you push pixels all day long in a cubicle, this bike will instantly turn you into a bad-ass.

  • Honda Ruckus

    There are times in your life when owning a scooter instead of a car just makes sense — especially with the price of gas as high as it is right now. The Honda Ruckus (starting at $2,000) has just the right mix of toughness and hipness to make it our absolute favorite. It has a tubular steel frame, oversized double headlights, tough off-road like tires, and a 49cc four-stroke engine with automatic transmission and electric starter. The Ruckus comes in all-black or black with silver and gray camouflage. And since it's a lightweight scooter, you can ride around for weeks with hardly any gas money — and since it's Honda, it will last forever so you can sell it to your little brother when you're done with it.
