i don't know if i would use this particular product, but i certainly see the need for products like this. as far as that goes, we already have products like this, for example, bondo and epoxy glue. i've used epoxy glue to glue the window in the tray that raises my car window.
as far as scooter body panels go, i'm kind of like a hick or a mcgyver type. i'll drill a few holes and use zip ties. i've even used screws and copper wire. put screws on both sides of the split, then "laced" them together with copper wire.
If it's a broken tab I have made a new tab or piece of slot out of aluminum sheet with some extra material to glue to. Easy to cut with scissors. Epoxy it to the body. Nice and strong. Same for a break or big crack. One day I'll try some plastic sheet glued to the panels.
I have some old load binder straps that I cut the ends off which I use instead of fiberglass matting behind epoxy repairs which many times become so close to invisible that they do not require any paint touch up. Any decent 2 part minute epoxy works out pretty well especially where I do not want to chance heat deforming the area with plastic welding.
The plastic welding rod from Harbor Freight so far has been structurally excellent especially for replacing sheared off mounting tabs on top cases and such where you can't add extra material. My expensive Givi Case had both of its mounting tabs completely sheared off in my accident this past spring and the welded in replacements have been stronger and less prone to rattling than the originals. The abrasion resistant PolyPropylene did not file or sand easily and had to be cut to shape with a saw. I can lift the entire back of the bike of the ground with the top case in its quick mount.
