We haven't had a lot in the way of new scooter models to discuss lately, but this week has produced a couple of bright prospects. Coming just a few months after the unquestionably successful re-design of their BV platform, Piaggio/Vespa has worked some long needed magic with the Fly 150. The new Fly sports a 3 valve, single overhead cam, 150cc engine. It also introduces fuel injection to the platform, vastly improves the under-seat storage capacity, and brings it all at a very reasonable $ 2899.00 MSRP.* A very limited supply of the Fly 150 are available at this time.
In their 50th year, Kymco has rolled out another model for the U.S. market. The Compagno 110 is on the floor at Scooterville. Big under-seat storage and a 112cc fuel injected powerplant are just a couple reasons to consider a new Compagno. Call to schedule a test ride. Just bring your valid motorcycle endorsement and your favorite helmet. We can provide a loaner helmet if needed. We do insist on closed toed shoes (no sandals or flip-flops, kids), and all test rides are weather permitting.
Sadly, neither the Compagno 50, nor the Fly 50 meet the Minnesota criteria for a moped license plate. We won't be stocking those engine sizes but can special order one for you.

Another early spring? Cabin Fever VIII sets in.
It's year eight of our annual mid-winter celebration. In 2006 we decided to find the half-way-point of the Minnesota scooter riding off-season and throw down a party and our only sale.
Here we go with year eight. The difference recently is that we may have to re-think the timing of the mid-point. Last year we chose the final weekend of January and it turned out we were only 4 or 5 weeks removed from the regular riding that began in early March.
Cabin Fever VIII will again land on the final weekend of January. On Friday, the 25th and Saturday, the 26th, plan on making it down to Scooterville for a visit.
We will have the usual insane deals on select scooter models, plus doorbuster deals on apparel, accessories, and helmets.
