Before you buy a 150 Star Scooter in Uganda

by Edwin

Scooters are popular for personal transport, partly due to being more affordable, easy to operate and convenient to park and store. Licensing requirements for scooters are easier and cheaper than for cars in most parts of the world, and insurance is usually cheaper.

Before you buy a 150 Star Scooter in Uganda

A scooter (also referred to as a motor scooter to avoid confusion with kick scooter) is a type of motorcycle with step-through frame and a platform for the rider's feet. Elements of scooter design have been present in some of the earliest motorcycles, and motorcycles identifiable as scooters have been made from 1914 or earlier.

Here in Uganda, scooters were and are very popular among Indians in the country. However, of late, many Ugandans have taken interest in the scooters and this has put them on the hunt. The 150 is included on the name of the scooter to indicate its 150cc of the engine. This makes it one of the strongest and fastest motorbikes in Uganda making it easy for it to climb hills with a lot of ease.

Who wouldn’t admit that scooters make it a lot easier to travel around Kampala especially in the congested streets and tight traffic jam in the peak hours?

Buying foreign used or new 150 Star Scooter from a local dealer in Uganda

Since Ugandans are picking interest in these scooters of late, a number of dealers have decided to import them into the country. Some are new while others are foreign used. Most of the scooters are new like the Gustos and the Star which strictly imported brand new. It will be very had to find such brand imported second/ foreign used.

You will have a good budget to buy yourself a new Star Scooter. Since there are variations of the Star this is to say the 2-stroke and the 4-stroke, manual and automatic, they all come with a different price tag.

An automatic Star Scooter can go for a price of 6,000,000/- and while a manual will cost around 5,800,000/-. A number plate is inclusive after the full amount is paid.

However, out of luck you can find a locally used scooter up for sell. This is very hard though. It can take you ages to come across one being sold as a second hand or locally used.

On this note, it is highly advised to buy a new one instead of the locally used since we have them imported brand new and payment options are very conducive to low income earners.
