This is where a scooter may come in handy. The Jet 125 forms part of Puzey’s Bladez scooter range, offering excellent fuel economy of 3.3 litres/100km and well-known reliability, claiming running costs of R7 a day.
Scooters are great solutions because they are easy to operate. There’s a “Twist & Go” throttle with an automatic transmission making it the perfect entry-level scooter for the novice or more experienced rider, who simply wants to navigate through traffic easily, at speeds of up to 80km/h.
The Bladez features a wide, comfortable seat, which can easily accommodate a passenger. Along with under-seat storage and standard luggage rack, your belongings are safe and secure. The unit can accommodate a weight of up to 156kg. A Motorcycle Learner’s Permit is required to drive one of these scooters and riders can apply for such a permit, from the age of 16.
At R9 750 this makes the jet an affordable transport solution. There are also finance packages available that range from R408.98 per month over 24 months to R226 per month over 48 months, while insurance remains low at around R91 per month. The Jet comes with a two-year/30 000km carry-in warranty against manufacturer defects. Service intervals are every 2 000km or six months, whichever comes first. Visit Puzey's website for more.
