The scooters on the showroom floor at Columbia Powersports gleam in vibrant colors like cherry red and bright blue. They all get their riders around, but there is plenty of variety to satisfy individual tastes. The Schwinn offers a more classic look while the E-TON and the KYMCO look modern and speedy. Some even have a hook to carry grocery bags.
