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 […]
The bad news is that there’s not a lot of backstory on this latest entry in Gas 2’s Recycled Hawtness series, presented by the techs from a Spanish motorcycle shop in Alicante, Spain called Sport Production. The good news is that there doesn’t need to be. Quite simply put, this video captures the story of […]

So, maybe […]
As anyone who’s spent time in Southeast Asia will surely tell you: tuk tuks are a thing. In case you don’t know, a Tuk Tuk is, essentially, a 3-wheeled Vespa scooter with a utility/van body strapped to the back – and they are EVERYWHERE in Asia. This one isn’t a smoke-producing 2-stroker, though. It’s electric!
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 […]
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 […]
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.
