Engineered in Germany, styled in Italy, and marketed by Spaniards, the QuaZZar-e electric scooter promises the best scootering that Europe has to offer.
Chicago’s streets just got an extra helping of 2 stroke buzz thanks to the guys at Scooterworks. That’s because they took a giggle-inducing 50 cc Genuine Scooters RoughHouse scooter and turned it into this: the 68 cc, street-stomping SlaughterHouse custom.
Vintage Vespa scooters are marvelous things. Given a willingness to turn a wrench, some quality oil, and ready access to small parts, an enthusiastic rider can keep their Vespa going a long time. But what if you wanted to take your tiny-wheeled titan around the world? Could you make it?
The motorcycle blogosphere has been talking Ducati scooter almost from the moment the company was bought by Audi back in 2012. At the time, I laughed at the idea of an Audi-run Ducati, but Audi’s ambitions of going toe-to-toe with crosstown rivals BMW seems to be pushing Ducati hard to improve sales and customer support, […]
With their high-tech balancing software and sensor arrays, easy-to-master learning curve, decent urban range, and almost-kinda-really too-high top speed, Segway scooters should be cool. They are, however, not cool- and I’m talking “probably not even the best thing about being a mall security guard” levels of not cool. What’s to be done? According to Spain’s […]
This is all in French, and Google’s translate tool can’t possibly be right. If it is, my fellow scooterists had better hold on to their feetie-socks, because this MXS 90 racing engine from Maxiscoot sounds like it’s ready to raise some serious Hell at next season’s Twist n’ Gone. The specs sound insane, and Google […]
Dear Santa, You’ve been very good to us already this year, what with the new turbocharged, 4-cylinder 2015 Ford Mustang and the 50 MPG Honda Accord- not to mention the slick little Motoped 50 that just reached its Kickstarter goal … but let’s get serious. What we really want for Christmas isn’t a Harley-stomping Honda […]
In a world where cars are quickly becoming too expensive for many small business owners to operate, there are some clever alternatives and solutions being bandied about. Among them is the Lit Motors Kubo, a unique cargo-carrying electric scooter they’ve turned to crowdfunding to make it happen. San Francisco-based Lit Motors has been working on […]
Yamaha announced a number of new “concept” electric motorcycles at this year’s EICMA show- but what’s decidedly more important is this: Yamaha has created a fully electric motorcycle “ecosystem” that takes its customers from the cradle to the grave without burning a single drop of oil or gas. Hot damn! Ever since Apple conquered the […]
The Honda Grom 125 may be the little 130 MPG bike that’s taking America by storm, but it won’t be the only “bad boy” mini-moto on the scene for very long. Suzuki is firing back with a DP-style electric monkey bike due in sometime in 2015, while Chicago’s own Genuine Scooter Company is fighting back […]
When is a Honda Grom not a Honda Grom? When it’s a Mike Hailwood-inspired, one-off custom Honda Grom cafe racer like the one Honda rolled out in Thailand a few days ago. The bike was built by Honda to demonstrate the little Grom’s potential for customization – something that’s critical to a bike’s success in […]
