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.”

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.
Last week we packed our bags for the ride to the much anticipated Rimini Lambretta Centre Open Day. It certainly didn’t disappoint! Team RLC worked hard to entertain all the Lambretta enthusiasts who made the trip to their new shop in Poggia Torriana.
Impeccable workshop, stunning displays and a warm welcome met us. The Siluru record breaking Lambretta, two SX twins and a prototype Lambretta taxi kept everyone entertained. There was even a chance to ride the shop demonstrators featuring the new Casa Lambretta 225cc kit and the BSG developed 305cc engine.
A full day of scooter heaven was followed by a top party with food, music and more scooter talk into the small hours. Scooter sensory overload.
The new British scooter brand Scomadi is ready to launch, and have just completed their ‘background film’ for their display stand at the forthcoming Intermot motorcycle show in Köln, Germany next week. Continue reading →
