2012 California Scooter Co. Greaser

2012 California Scooter Co. Greaser Base

Intro

The goal of the production of the scooters by the California Scooter Co was to do something a little different. As a result, the scooter manufacturer came up with a design that looks like a motorcycle while providing the benefits of riding a scooter. The 2012 California Scooter Co Greaser is one of three models, including the Classic and Babydoll, which are scooters built on a motorcycle-like frame.

Scooter brings a particular type of bike to mind. One that is usually smaller than most motorcycles and has a step through frame, but this is not the case with the 2012 California Scooter Co Greaser. The Greaser is a scooter-style motorcycle and not scooter with a motorcycle style. It is built on a steel frame, weighs a mere 240 lbs, and has a seat height of 27 inches, so that most riders will feel confident when stopped due to the light weight of the Greaser.

The bike is equipped with a 149cc, four-stroke, single-cylinder engine that provides 13.3 horsepower and 9.1 lb-ft of torque. The light weight of the 2012 California Scooter Co Greaser means that the engine is able to provide plenty of power for acceleration both from a stop and when at speed. Also, the Greaser is nimble and zippy, and is able to take tight corners quite easily both at high and low speeds. Depending on the weight of the rider and any cargo, the top speed of the 2012 California Scooter Co Greaser is reported to be 55 to 65 mph.

As well as having a different frame than most scooters on the road, the 2012 California Scooter Co Greaser also has a different transmission. Instead of having an automatic transmission, it is equipped with a five-speed manual transmission, meaning that a rider must cycle through the gears using the clutch and throttle when riding the Greaser. Novice riders will benefit from the light weight and 149cc engine of the Greaser, as they can improve their gear shifting skills while not worrying that the bike will get away from them.

All three models produced by the California Scooter Co are very similar. In fact, the differences really only lie in the design of the bikes. The style cues used for the 2012 California Scooter Co Greaser were based on naked hot rod racecars. The goal of the design of the Greaser was to create a bike that had a bad boy look. As such, it has flat black bodywork, a blacked out engine, bright red steel wheels with white walls, and billet aluminum.
