With some of these scooters coming out lately its really shattering the wall between the two worlds. I am just waiting for someone to come out with a dual sport scooter.
Next generation might not be asking 'do I want a scooter or a motorcycle' they might be asking nothing more than 'do I want manual or automatic'
I have never understood this big distinction between motorcycles and scooters. If it has two wheels and an engine, that's what's important.
Besides, as our population ages, more and more people will think of scooters as those "personal mobility deathtraps" sold by the scooter store.
