About Big Boy Scooters


Originated in 1998, Big Boy is a proudly South African company, focused on providing a wide range of scooters, on and off road motorcycles and ATVs at unparalleled value-for-money. Big Boy Scooters originally started in the ride-on scooter market, providing an affordable and entertaining mode of transport with petrol and battery powered recreational scooters. Over a decade later, Big Boy’s range now boasts over 35 different scooter, motorcycle and ATV models catering for most on and off road applications.

Our widely used slogan is ‘More Ride for your Rand’ which perfectly sums up Big Boy’s objective. The scooter and commuter range provide an extremely affordable option for commuters to have their own personal transportation at a fraction of the price of a car as well as the freedom of not having to rely on expensive or unreliable public transport. With the spiraling costs of localised personal travel, the financial benefits of riding a scooter or motorcycle are becoming more attractive than ever with massive savings on fuel, toll roads, parking, insurance, servicing and more. Big Boy’s road-legal range caters for everyone from 16 years and over but increasingly people of all ages are using Big Boy products as a logical alternative for their daily traveling needs. Saving just one tank of fuel in your vehicle per month could pay for the repayment costs of your own Big Boy.
