150cc class scooters are quite possibly the most common type of scooter on the market today. Only 50cc class scooters offer a similar range of models and styles. Here we will be looking at the myriad options in the range of 149cc to 171cc scooters.

A recent addition to the Buddy line is the 149.6cc 4-stroke, air-cooled Grand Tourer 150 ($3,499) which is described as “the point where Nostalgia is made Real.”
Sym offers the 11.8 HP, 169cc 4-stroke fuel injected Fiddle III 200i ($2,899). Sadly, the 15.3 HP, 171cc 4-stroke, liquid-cooled HD 200 Evo ($3,499) and RV 200 Evo ($3,699) have been discontinued. If you find one of these scooters available somewhere, take advantage of the opportunity.
