Effective 2010: Gasoline scooters cannot be manufactured with a seat kit included unless they are classified as a motor vehicle (motorcycle). Gas scooters of this type cannot be classified as a motorcycle and therefore a seat kit cannot be offered with the (new scooter). We do sell seat kits separately that fit all models on our parts link above. The photos on this page show the scooter with a seat kit. Your scooter will not have any seat kit in the box.
The features of this fast gas scooter include an Aluminum Billet deck and 10" air filled tough tires, (this is the ONLY scooter of this type available with 10" tires, all others are 8" and smaller) and this tough gas scooter also comes with a dual shock front suspension system. While riding the XG-550 you will notice it features the widest deck of all of our scooters we offer, it also features aluminum Mag wheels, and both front and rear vented disk brakes along with billet racing handle bars.
The XG-550 cannot be broken. The frame is made of high tension steel, the deck is made of high grade Billet Aluminum, these 2 features alone make this the toughest gas powered scooter on the market today, & don't forget that this unit is electric starting and the battery is included. The scooter battery is charged by magneto while riding and it comes with an external battery charger so you can plug the scooter in while it is not in use. Of course there is a pull starter should you ever need it.
*Note: 2 stroke engines require that you mix 2 cycle oil with the gasoline. Instructions and a fuel / oil mixing bottle is provided.
This scooter is our highest quality gas powered scooter that we offer & this model offers the above features that the XG-505 do not. The quality of this scooter is more than twice that of our XG-499 model, the price is just a few dollars more but you will get what you pay for when you purchase this model. The XG-550 has NO stickers on the deck, the X-Treme flames logo is engraved by machining right into the Aluminum plate. One word sums it up for this model and that is SHARP!
