Question by sassygurlforever: Would a 4-stroke engine of a scooter be able to handle an incline?
I have a bit of a twisty incline to get to work, and I mostly want have a scooter for work and school….I wanted to have the 4-stroke because all you need is gas, unlike the 2-stroke that I hear you need to add oil so that it will mix and lube the engine. Please let me know anything you might know. Thank you.

In these days of global warming you have to favour the 4 stroke over the 2 really because burning oil can’t be good for the environment. Having said that and being a child of the 50s REAL scooters are two strokes with white walls, blue smoke (and red eyes). Remember the home of these machines is Italy which is mountain country – any modern scooter will handle twisty inclines with ease (don’t expect to do 70 miles an hour uphill though).
