In Asia, one of the nations with the most number of motorcycle and scooter users is Vietnam. The motorcycle is the major form of transport for most Vietnamese people. They consume less fuel, are faster and occupy less road space. But when there are thousands of them on the road at the same, they can also cause a traffic jam.

San Francisco, Buenos Aires and Copenhagen are just some of the places where scooter sharing has been employed. Barcelona takes it further, introducing a sleekly-designed, purple-colored electric scooter for sharing, which is a first for the city and the world.
