Scooters, also called kick scooters or push scooters, are small, human-powered vehicles. A rider pushes off the ground with the foot, propelling the scooter forward.

Other types of scooters also exist, including trick or stunt scooters and motorized scooters.

Trick scooters are used to perform skateboard-style tricks, with the added advantage of the handlebars and a steering column.

Motorized scooters have small electric or gasoline motors which allow the rider to go more quickly and for longer distances. Motor scooter rentals are popping up in large cities across the United States, such as Nashville and Washington, D.C.

Kick scooters have been around for about 100 years. Early scooters were homemade, created by attaching roller skate wheels to a board and handle.

Most scooters were made for children, and toy companies marketed scooters in the years that followed.

During the 1990s and early 2000s, scooters peaked in popularity with the introduction of the folding Razor and similar scooters.

Adults in Tokyo, Japan, began using this scooter for transportation, and fad soon spread around the world.

Other variations on the scooter have led to some interesting sports. For example, the kickbike scooter has a bicycle-sized wheel on the front and a smaller wheel in the back.

Kickbikes are used in "dryland mushing," similar to sled dog racing but with a wheeled vehicle.

Freestyle scootering is a sport that combines aspects of BMX and skateboarding.

Three and four-wheeled scooters also exist.

​Step by Step Instructions for Drawing​ a Scooter

How to Draw Scooter: Step 1

1. Begin by drawing a pair of straight, parallel lines slanted diagonally. These will form the handlebars of the scooter.

2. Draw another set of straight, parallel lines, positioned perpendicular to the first. This is the bar or steering column. The handlebars should now resemble the letter "T."

3. Draw the handlebar grips on the ends of the handlebars. For the near grip, draw a small circle just beyond the handlebar. From it, draw straight, parallel lines just wider than those of the handlebar. Connect them using a curved line, forming a cylinder shape. Draw the remaining grip in a similar way, with the partial circle encircling the handlebar. Then, draw a short, curved line across the handlebar.

4. Next, draw the lower steering column. Draw a partial circle around the bar, with a short curved line across the bar. Then, draw parallel lines slightly wider than the bar itself. Connect them at the bottom with a short curved line.

6. Draw the scooter's deck. Draw parallel lines at a diagonal angle from the bar, and enclose the end with a curved line. This is called the headtube. Use three straight lines to enclose a partial rectangle around the end of the headtube. Draw straight lines parallel to the front and bottom of the deck, and connect them at the corners to give the deck a three-dimensional appearance.
