As far as the price of tires go, I'm paying $40 for a 13 inch Shinko rear that lasts around 4,000 miles and the same for the front that lasts over 10,000. As far as maintenance goes, it's brand specific but on my Daelim you change the oil every 1200 miles (takes less than a quart), the belt and gear oil every 12,500 miles, and adjust the valves when you hear them. Really not different than a bike IMO.
On my 1st scooter I ignored the 12,500 belt change interval and had the 1st belt brake at 20,000 miles and the 2nd belt break at 42,000 miles.
