End of season rallies – Mablethorpe & Warmwell

As the 2017 scooter rally season draws to a close, this weekend sees the counties Lincs and Dorset both hosting events for those still up for riding towards the coast in search of a party with friends. 


ScooterNova magazine will be present at both events so feel free to stop and say hello, and maybe purchase a subscription for a friend as a gift for Christmas? We’ll give you a free Christmas card too, so you can present the lucky recipient with something on the special day. 


We also have a few packs of Christmas cards for sale at just £3, for which you get six cards with envelopes. 

At Mablethorpe we will also have some other merchandise, such as these exclusive, real leather classic-style key holders for £7, plus a few T-shirts and hoodies. 

And if you’re not at either rally then you can of course buy online via our website at http://www.scooternova.com

Safe ride and see you on the dancefloor later! 

Bridlington scooter rally – BSRA statement 

We have just received the statement below from the LCGB and VFM:

“Hello People in Scooter World…

“After general debate at the British Scooter Rallies Association AGM (held at Bridlington), and further discussions between VFM* and the Lambretta Club of Great Britain Committee who are the organisers of the BSRA Trade & Custom Show /Scooter Rally, it has been decided that this event will continue in Bridlington for the forthcoming 2018 Rally Season. After which it will alternate yearly with a venue in the NorthWest.

“This will fulfil a geographical need for a National event in the Northwest, establish a change in the national calendar, and possibly make things a bit more fluid (potentially in the future), even allowing us to return to Bridlington in the Summer months.

“It has been the same team of Scooterists organising this event for 20+ years. We thank everyone for their support, and look forward to a big party at the Spa in 2018 to ring in the changes.”

“LCGB/VFM Scooter Collective”
So folks, we’ll see you in Brid in 2018 – 26-28 October! 

New Sena systems in Milan – Ride Connected

Rider communication experts Sena, had some tidy new products to show us in Milan, notably their new 30k intercom which uses their new ‘mesh’ system for networking up to 30 units! 

It also utilises Bluetooth enabling mobile phone and satnav connection, and claimed range (depending on mode and connections) is up to 8km. 


They also told us that their crash helmet range is finally due for launch in 2018. Produced with a composite fibre shell these feature integrated communications, noice reduction system and one version will also still include an integral action camera mounted on top. Very clever indeed. 


Here at ScooterNova we already use Sena intercoms and camera while riding so we are very interested to see how these products develop. 

As they say, watch this space. 

Shoei Neotec II launched at Eicma

The only flip-front crash helmet I’ve chosen to wear is the Shoei Neotec, so the launch of the II version is of great interest to me. 


One of the big improvements is thst it is preapred for an integrated Sena Communications bluetooth device, operated by simple to use buttons. 

It also features a composite fibre shell, Integral sun visor, a newly designed cheek pad that is claimed to make it much quieter than the previous. 

A new locking system has been added to the helmet too, to make sure that the front is secured when flipped up, important as the Neotec II is the first Shoei system helmet to feature dual homologation – that is as both an open and full face. 

To be available in six sizes from XS to XXL in three shell sizes, we look forward to trying one when they arrive in 2018. www.shoeiassured.com

New Davida Koura helmet launched in Milan

We are in Milan for a couple of days at the Motorcycle Show here and the first new product to share with you is a full image of the new Davida Koura crash helmet we teased you with a couple of days ago. 

The New Davida 94 FF Koura features an “Advanced ‘ orbital laminated’ GPR composite shell construction” and there will also be an optional shell made from T700 grade racing carbon fibre. Davida claim it has a compact and close fitting shell derived from their open face Davida Speedster V3 helmet and say that the shell shape is “designed to give optimal weight-balanced ergonomic performance, gradually sculptured upwards from front to rear to eliminate clothing interference.”


There are six chin air vents, the helmet will be supplied with a 3mm anti-fog ECER22-05 approved visor, it also features multi-density EPS shock liner, removable, washable, fast-drying, anti-bacterial fabric liner and interchangeable with after-market leather liner kits in five colours.
