What is a scooter?
Scooters are small, compact, sporty and versatile motorcycles that have a small motor attached to the front wheel, allowing them to be used as a motorised scooter.
Scooters can be powered by a petrol engine or electric power.
They are popular in Japan and Australia and are being used to transport tourists around the country.
Where do scooters come from?
Scooter makers are known for using high-tech materials, such as titanium, which allows them to achieve a strong body and to be lightweight and compact.
They use high-strength aluminium alloy for their frame and body parts.
Titanium is also a good material for body and chassis parts.
How does a scoot function?
Scooties have an integrated steering system which helps them navigate around corners and over obstacles.
They also have a camera system, which lets them know when they are about to hit a curb or stop in traffic.
Scootys are equipped with a range of electric power, such a motor, brakes, pedals and steering wheels.
They can also be equipped with cameras and GPS navigation systems.

Scotch scooters are available in different sizes.
A scooter weighing up to 4.5 kilograms (8lbs) can be used for everyday riding.
