Scooters have been quite popular in Nepal. If you have noticed the streets of Kathmandu, you must have seen a drastic increase in the number of scooters.

People now have come out of the stereotypical thought that scooters are only for the ladies. Looking at the trend, it seems that regardless of gender, a scooter seems to be an easier choice for the youth today. Why? Affordability, less fuel consumption, no clutch and gears, smooth and easy rides and much more.

Scooters are probably the best commuter vehicles for the city. Not only it is easy to ride, but it is also light as well. Also, the rider gets ample space to put their belongings. With the new emission system implemented, various companies are launching their products compliant with the BS6.

Today, we are bringing you the updated list of the best scooters you can purchase in Nepal in 2021.
