KTM Readies New E-SPEED Electric Scooter (w/ video)

Before they became the de-facto European streetbike for guys who wear flat-brimmed hats bbut can’t afford a Ducati, KTM motorcycles were the stuff of off-road legend. With the introduction of the first Duke, they practically invented the idea of a roadworthy stunt bike. Now, KTM is going back to its crazy, road-terror roots with their […]

Video: Electric Snow Scooter An Enjoyable Alternative To Snowmobiles

We’re just about halfway through the winter here in the U.S., and while some areas have been hammered by snow, so far New England has had a pretty dry winter. But in places where there is always snow on the ground, a snowmobile can be more practical (though just as expensive) as having a car to drive around. That is where the Govecs electric snow scooter comes in.

Recycled Hawtness: Bitchin' Lowrider Vintage Vespa (w/ video)

What you’re looking at here is a steel-bodied vintage Vespa stripped down to its bare-metal frame and set down onto the same kind of lowering airbags used by lowrider aficionados (yes, I just typed that) in the hot rod and chopper communities. In a word? It’s awesome. Built by German hot rod shop Kings of […]

Smart Scooter Gets by With a Little Help From its Friends

With its easy-to-park cars and high-end, pedal-assist bikes, Mercedes’ Smart brand has spent years positioning itself as the best choice for fashionable, eco-conscious urbanites. Since 2010, the brand has been threatening to add another vehicle to its portfolio of swank city-rides: a plug-in electric scooter. Now, it seems that Smart will be getting some help […]

BMW Electric Scooter Gets Road Tested

As the world’s largest luxury car maker, BMW is well positioned to start offering its customers premium electric cars. That’s why BMW created the “i” brand, even going so far as to try and sell the i3 and i8 EV’s through digital dealerships online. But nobody really expects Beemer to try and break into the scooter market, which is why I am scratching my head at the news that BMW’s C Evolution electric scooter has been spotted on the road for testing.

Are the Germans serious?

Lambretta Reborn! All-new LN125 Gets Ridden in Spain

Despite my much-professed and well-documented love for scooter-y things, the reborn Lambretta LN125 decided to bestow a tester to Spain’s Motorpasion … but they did such a great job reviewing the sexy little bike that I can hardly complain. Let’s face it, if your article involves riding a scooter inside a diner I think you […]

Enviromoto Helps Build a Better Buddy

Last week, I wrote an article about Genuine’s new Lemonhead Buddy scooter, wherein I called the little scoot zippy, practical, and traffic-carving. I figured the Lemonhead to be a sweet little ride, but complained about the bike’s 30 mph top-speed … to just about anyone who would listen. One person who listened was my friend and Twist n’ Gone superstar Jeremy Hall. In addition to inventing the nacho cheese fountain, Jeremy also happens to run EnviroMoto, an online resource for go-fast scooter parts. SO, does Jeremy have a plan to make the lil’ Buddy a bit sweeter? “I can make your Buddy SCREAM!” he replied.

Genuine's New Lemonhead Buddy is a 100+ mpg Sweetie

I’m not gonna lie, Genuine’s Buddy line of small-displacement scooters have a special place in my heart. Over the past twelve months, I spent (quite literally) hundreds of hours riding various scoots, from Honda Metros to big-engined maxis, and the Buddy was always “just right”. It’s a “Goldilocks” bike, in other words … and now, thanks to Ferrara Pan and the introduction of this new Lemonhead model, the lil’ Buddys have gotten a lil’ bit sweeter.
