Scooter Cities Manchester

As part of our Scooter Cities highlight, the team at Kymco are taking a look at Manchester.

Birthplace of Oasis, The Smiths, Joy Division and home to two of the world’s most prominent football teams Manchester City and United, but also one of the best scooter cities in the UK.

Steeped in history, the city is host to a myriad of amazing sights, museums and of course bars that claim rights to the Gallagher brothers first gigs, but it’s also a beautiful city to explore on a scooter.

With many attractions in close proximity to one another you can take in a trip to the Manchester Art Gallery, explore the Manchester Ship canal and go for lunch whilst watching a band at the now infamous Night & Day café on Oldham Street…

…and get there on less than ten pounds.

As the range of scooters from Kymco average at 100 miles to the gallon, a day out (based on current fuel prices) can cost as little as £6.

For Coronation Street fans (you know you are) Atherton Street in Castlefield is a few minutes away via scooter - ideal for those who want to get a picture at the Rovers Return.

For football fans, beat the traffic jams as you weave through gridlocked traffic after the game. Take advantage of the free parking available whilst people look on in sheer jealousy as you cruise past them down Sir Matt Busby Way confident you’re getting home to celebrate your win before anyone else.

If ever a reason was needed for calling Manchester a scooter city, cast your memory back to Jude Law’s role as ‘Alfie’ in the popular 2004 remake. Most of the scenes where our protagonist was seen zipping around on his scooter were filmed in Greater Manchester!

So if you’re stuck for ideas as to where to take your scooter out for the day, try the multicultural and endlessly entertaining city of Manchester!

Visit for more information on a great range of cost effective and learner legal mopeds, scooters & bikes that average over 100 miles per gallon!

Even better – drivers currently holding a valid driver’s licence don’t need to take another test to ride a learner legal moped.

So what are you waiting for? Get hold of a Kymco Scooter today and get exploring!
