Answer :

Mass of the scooter, m = 95 kg

Maximum speed, v = 60 km/h = 50/3 m/s

Pick up time, t = 5 s

Engine power required to achieve this speed in given time = mv2/2t

= 2638.89 W

= 3.537 hp

This is a little higher than the given maximum power, i.e. 3.50 hp.

An engine of 3.5 hp can not exactly produce 60 km/h speed in 5 s. Hence, these specifications are somewhat over claimed.
