2007- Year of the Scooter!

2007 Year of the Scooter!

What's new for 2007? Manufacturers have started to show new 2007 models and we've placed pre-orders for several special edition scoots. With more and more manufacturers entering the US, we've expanded our line, but remain committed to only carrying quality scooters with strong parts and distributor support. Here are some of our favorite 2007 models...


The "Series Italia". Following Genuine Scooters' successful special edition Stella's, the "Series Italia" is a limited production Buddy 125 (expected early February). Fondly dubbed America's new Smallframe, the Buddy 125's easy to ride handling characeristics and excellent power to weight/size ratio makes it one of the shop's favorite scooters for 2007.

The Genuine Rattler will be coming in a 110cc 2-stroke for 2007. The utlimate Hooligan/Streetfighter scooter, the instant punch of the 110cc 2-stroke engine makes the Rattler our pick for "Hot Rod" scooter of 2007!

* Rumors abound about the re-start of the LML plant (that manufactures the Stella). We're keeping our fingers crossed, but news stories and press releases provide few details.


Kymco is bringing back our favorite 49cc scooter, the retro looking People 50. Our best selling scoot over the years, the People 50 was sorely missed in 2006. Big 16" wheels for a smooth, stable ride, and a strong 2 stroke engine made the People 50 one of the fastest 49cc scoots on the market. Our "Comeback" scooter of 2007! Expected February(?).

The Super 9, another Kymco scoot on hiatus for 2006, returns in '07 with a cleaner burning air-cooled 2 stroke engine, and bold color changes.

TGB (Taiwan Golden Bee)

The TGB Key West comes with fat, knobby 10" tires to handle potholes and bumps in urban settings, and can handle hard-pack dirt or campground trails. Almost identical to the Yamaha BWS, or Zuma, the TGB keeps the peppy 2-stroke 49cc EPA approved engine for 2007. Priced a few hundred less than the Zuma (if you can still find one), the TGB Key West gets our nod as "Best Zuma-like" scooter.

The hot looking TGB R50X, our "Looks most like a Sport Bike" scooter for 2007. We're having a blast kitting 49cc scoot with 70cc kits, exhausts and transmission go fast bits. Make your scoot scream!


Instant Classic! The Bajaj Chetak, our pick for best "Manual Transmission, Steel Bodied" scooter for 2007 (even though they're 2006 models). Get yours before they're gone!

2007 Scooter of the Year!
Drum roll please...

Quality, affordable, nimble, quick, fuel efficient, fun, words all describing our pick for 2007 scooter of the year. The perfect Urban Commuter Scooter!
