The Milan Mo­tor­cy­cle Show

Scootering - - Contents - Andy

All the news from this year’s Milan Mo­tor­cy­cle Show – new ma­chines (in­clud­ing a new geared scooter!), parts, ac­ces­sories, cloth­ing, hel­mets and more!

The Milan Show is an an­nual event that in my ex­pe­ri­ence can be a lit­tle hit and miss. This year how­ever, there was plenty to keep clas­sic scooter en­thu­si­asts happy as well as in­ter­est­ing stuff for the mod­ern auto riders too.

One ob­ser­va­tion I made over the two days there was the amount of com­pa­nies still pro­duc­ing spares for clas­sic, geared, metal bod­ied scoot­ers. Most don’t get men­tioned here be­cause they are sup­pli­ers of lights, petrol taps, stan­dard ex­hausts or sus­pen­sion, CDI units and other mun­dane parts, but there are plenty of them out there and it’s very refreshing to see.

Else­where, I sup­pose the big story for us was the pre­sen­ta­tion of a new geared­scooter, the first since Vespa re­launched the PX in 2011 and LML showed their four-stroke Star mod­els. For avid read­ers of

Scooter­ing of course it will come as no sur­prise be­cause we pre­viewed the six-speed Scomadi 250 in our ‘Ru­mours’ sec­tion of the Septem­ber 2015 edi­tion of the mag­a­zine. Didn’t see that? In­ter­est­ingly a lot of peo­ple missed it at the Milan Show too, but not Scooter­ing of course…
