2011 Schwinn Augusta Review


The 2011 Schwinn Augusta arrives with one available model, the 300. As scooters go, the Augusta is fairly powerful and can handle relatively long distances. Like Schwinn Bicycles, the Augusta has a classic look that is simple, sleek, and utilitarian. Option spoke wheels add a look that is reminiscent of the 1950s. Schwinn takes many of its styling clues from Vespa, its European counterpart. A benefit to the 2011 Schwinn Augusta is that it can seat two people. It is markedly more expensive than other scooters, although this is a side effect of its added performance capabilities. Schwinn only manufactures the August in either blue or white color options, which may dissuade some potential buyers. The color options give the 2011 Schwinn Augusta a bit of a cheap look, although some buyers might interpret it as playful.

One of the benefits of the 2011 Schwinn Augusta is that it was designed to handle everyday duties. The lack of any substantial cargo area makes it so that the Augusta is probably not an option for those who need to haul items, so it probably will not appeal to the delivery vehicle market. It should also be noted that the Augusta is quite heavy for a scooter. Meanwhile, the vinyl seating is standard but comfortable. Instrumentation is limited to a speedometer and a fuel gauge warning. Overall, the 2011 Schwinn Augusta is a simple scooter that gets riders from point A to point B. Given this, it is slightly overpriced.
