Pissed about the latest subway fare hike? Screw the MTA and invest in one of Scoot NY’s handy scooters or motorbikes. “You can actually feel the City as you ride,” says owner Joseph Baum, which sounds better than whatever it is we feel on the L train. Hop on a tan-and-orange MIO 50cc scooter ($2,199) and jet from Manhattan to Brooklyn reaching speeds up to 30mph (you don’t even need a motorcycle license!). For a larger engine that’ll get you on the highways, pick up the popular European-style Low Boy 150cc ($1,999) and ride up to 75mph sporting a stylish HCI helmet (from $75) and a Kryptonite lock (from $50). And, don’t worry, it’s eco-friendly.
