Roll up roll up! Ladies and gentlemen, have we got something for you lovely people at this year’s Isle of Wight scooter rally!
All weekend at the ScooterNova magazine stall on the official rally campsite at Smallbrook Stadium near Ryde, we will have a pair of our ScooterNova riders, ready and waiting for your face to complete the picture!

And in case you forget your selfie stick, we’ll have a camera somewhere nearby to capture the moment.
So come along, join in the fun, snap away and share your photos of the day you were a cover star of The Rider’s Choice magazine. Just don’t forget to please add #ScooterNova

Once a scooter with a waiting list measured in years, the Vespa derived Bajaj Chetak was a mainstay of the Indian nation for decades. And then one day, in Continue reading
As the annual Milan Motorcycle Show draws to a close, you may ask what were the highlights there over the last six days? Luckily Scooternova were on hand to capture

Scooternova is all about the old. We love our scootering heritage and have collected an extensive personal archive of magazines, photographs, literature and memorabilia over many years. Lambrettas, Vespas and all the other wild and wonderful scooters that we have owned, ridden and swooned over.
Scooternova is all about Scooters. When a British company take a leap of faith to build a new scooter for our scene, then we’re interested. We’re not the only ones. A new vibrant and interactive scooter website has an exclusive report and technical video for you to enjoy.
Hot off the press from Scooterist Meltdown here’s some information about a new and exciting project for our scooter world….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.
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.”
