What the SLUK is going on?

Hot off the press from Scooterist Meltdown here’s some information about a new and exciting project for our scooter world….

SLUK News

SLUK News

Do you love scooters but are fed up with dead-tree scooter media?

Would you like something that was more up to date, faster with the news, more interactive maybe?

Would you prefer it if you could obtain quality scooter content in a format that you could access anywhere, at any time, with the phone in your pocket or the computer in front of you?

What about going beyond a static format and adding video content designed both to inform and entertain?

How about your scooter media not being a one-way street, but by you being able to actively take part in real time?

How would you feel about all of this being brought to you by forward-thinking scooter riders like yourself.

Would you like to still get the quality of writing that only comes from knowledgeable and experienced writers?

Would you like to see big, powerful images displayed beautifully on a revolutionary website that blows the competition into the weeds?

How about if there was one place on the net that acted as a hub for scooterists worldwide? Somewhere you can find out about forthcoming events and post reports of those you’ve attended in video or photographic format.

How about a site that allowed you to get a better deal on insurance, clothing or simply to find your nearest dealer?

What would you pay for such a service?

What if we said that you do not need to visit a newsagent to pay £4 every month or take out a subscription for this?

How about if we told you that the price for all this is FREE?

If that sounds like a good deal then you need SLUK.

SLUK is short for ScooterLab.uk and it’s coming to you soon.

Concepts at Tokyo Motor Show

Suzuki has unveiled a number of new concept models at this year’s Tokyo Motor Show, two of which we think are of interest to scooterists. 

The Concept GSX sports bike was “designed to highlight the potential and the future development of Suzuki’s GSX ranges, from GSX-R and Hayabusa to GSX-S.”
‘So what?’ You may ask. Well apart from stereotype sportsbike lines and powerful multi-cylinder engine, features include “a twist shifter…” Ring any bells amongst the Lambretta and Vespa riders out there?

Meanwhile the Hustler Scoot (pictured) is a concept model of a “rider-friendly, 50cc scooter with luggage space for diverse purposes.

“A conventional underseat luggage bay is complemented by a removable, carryable luggage case that mounts between the rider’s feet. There’s more room for luggage on the rear carrier and on the sides of the bodywork.”

For more details of Suzuki at the Tokyo Show click here.

With the Eicma show in Milan due to take place next month, we’re sure this won’t be the last new scooter design we see this year.  

Lambretta with real poke!
