Times When a Scooter Comes in Handy in Malaysia

Nope, not this.

Wouldn’t want embarrassing mishaps like this to happen:

OK, now we’re talking.

Here are five situations when a scooter comes in handy in Malaysia

1. When you’re stuck in a jam


Familiar sight on Malaysian roads? Get a scooter and maneuver in between cars on the road to get to your destination on time!

2. When you need to look for parking

The struggle of looking for parking. Go any day to places like SS15, Damansara Uptown and Bangsar and you would know the struggle of looking for a place to park your car.

But if you’re on a scooter, it would be so much easier as there are usually spaces available at the bike parking.

And if you want to avoid paying for parking in shopping malls? Not giving you any ideas, but …


3. When petrol prices go up

Every Wednesday we’ll be Googling “petrol price in Malaysia” and let’s be honest, it’s usually not good news.

At the rate the petrol is now, the average cost of filling a full scooter tank is around RM9.00. And that should be able to last you a good 300km.

Affordable, isn’t it?


4. When you don’t want to make Malaysia hotter than it already is


We complain about the weather getting hotter and hotter every day. One of the reasons it’s so hot is due to high amount of carbon dioxide in the air.

According to studies, if you switch 10% of your annual commute to a scooter, you can help to save almost 325 million tons of carbon dioxide and 15 million gallons of petrol per year.

5. When you go sightseeing on your holidays

Cruising in the towns of Penang, Melaka, Kuala Lumpur, or even in Langkawi, and seeing everything there is to see by scooter with your significant other riding behind. How convenient and romantic.

Remember the scooter scene from The Lizzie McGuire Movie? Bet you wanted a romantic sightseeing like this since you first watched it.
