Motorcycle & Scooter Fair EICMA 2017 in Milan

2017 = 25 years Scooter Center, It feels like we are at the EICMA for at least the 25th time.

EICMA = International Cycle Motorcycle and Accessories Exhibition, International exhibition for motorcycles and motorcycle accessories and therefore also the most important trade fair for Scooter novelties.

According to the motto of a title song of our Eicma video: “DON´T STOP”:
We think it's great that our old scooters continue to develop parts. With our own brand bgm we ourselves make a major contribution to this. And we cannot and do not want to shut ourselves off from the development of new vehicles / concepts.

In this ticker:

  1. Lambretta
  2. Wasp
  3. Pinasco
  4. Schwalbe

[wpanchor id = "lambretta"]

LAMBRETT

Today our way in Hall 9 led us first to the "new" Lambretta over - our friends from the Rimini Lambretta Center had prepared a new Lambretta in RLC Race Style especially for Vittorio.

In addition, the new Casa performance Parts presented. The rear rim with internal brake disc immediately catches the eye,

Pinasco

FARO BASSO goes membrane inlet:

Was presented for Wideframe / Lamp below models (faro basso) the proven Nordkap cylinder with membrane (membrane is new). There is of course an intake manifold to match, but this time not for the Polini CP carburettor but for a Dellorto 22mm carburetor, which will be offered by Pinasco in the future, already converted to a cable rocker.

Was shown, in addition to the already in Rooms shown original engine housing with 3 stud bolts and possible membrane inlet on the housing also a variant with 4 cylinder stud bolts, which allows an assembly of each PX 177 tuning cylinder allows.

For the flytech ignitions, a zamak pole wheel for faro basso and GS150 engines was shown

Vespa GS160 / SS180

The announced GS160 / SS180 cylinder with direct inlet appeared to be a double carburetor cylinder with oval bores / elongated holes of the 200 models.

Wasp Smallframe:

The new ones were presented Pinasco motor housing and the currently missing crankshafts. Furthermore crankshafts with interchangeable balancing weights.

Wasp Largeframe:

We were astonished by the double rotary valve shaft that has never existed before.

Pinasco now offers pre-assembled 225cc Engines on. The key data is the 60th wave, 225ccm, 21,5PS at 26 NM. 10-13-17-20 / 35 Christmas tree with 23/64 gear ratio. Ignition is a flytech with 1,4kg. Missing: carburetor, carburetor pan, clutch cover, fan wheel cover and the complete brake.

The Si28 carburetor now come as a VRX-R variant with a small foam filter.

Vespa moped

All fans of the Ciao, Si, Bravo and boxer models will be happy that there were new products here too:

 

[wpanchor id = "swallow"]

SWALLOW

E-Schwalbe with Bosch motor. The batteries can be removed in order to charge them in the apartment or: there is also a built-in charging cable under the bench.

Scooter Center at the eicma 2013

Scooter Center at Eicma 2013

Early in the morning, after a short night, we went to Milan by plane. EICMA 2013 - the world's largest motorcycle fair - took place here.
We were greeted by rays of sunshine and 20 degrees, which made us forget the nasty weather in Germany. We were very curious what news EICMA 2013 had in store for us,

This year there were 4 halls that were bursting at the seams. Everything of rank and name was gathered. But in order:

ITALKIT

The focus at Italkit was on Big Bore cylinders for four-stroke engines and also 140mm kits for Rotax Kart and Aprilia 125cc. For the scooter sector, 70s and 80s kits for the water-cooled Piaggio engines were shown, but they were not really technically revolutionary.

AKRAPOVIC

Akrapovic showed the new exhaust for the Piaggio MP3, which was 5kg lighter than the original and promised 1HP more at 7950 rpm and 1 NM more torque at 6500 rpm

BUZZETTI

Buzzetti showed new footrests and side stands for the LML Star 4-stroke models and side stands for the Vespa GTS.

NOLAN

Nolan primarily showed beautiful skin ;-)

Nolan Girls

DELLORTO

Dellorto also remembered its roots and showed a section through the history of carburetors with MA19, SH20 and ... carburetors

Dellorto carburetor history

POLINI

At Polini, we particularly liked the new ignition for the Vespa PX (also Elestart!) Analogous to Vespatronic etc.
Polini has reintroduced primary kits for the Vespa Smallframes. Poliuni has also expanded the range of Polini CP carburettors and kits.

Unfortunately, Polini did not have good news regarding delivery times for the Vespa PX 200 aluminum cylinder kits. Gilardoni, the manufacturer, is overloaded with orders due to the bankruptcy of a competitor and cannot deliver the desired quantities. Fortunately, we have a good supply of kits for standard hub:
Cylinder -POLINI 210 cc aluminum- Vespa PX200, Rally200 -

In the 60s Polini long stroke kits for the Vespa PX 200 unfortunately you bought us empty.
A large, universal air box could be very interesting, but we'll try that first. We'll keep you up to date here!
In the automatic scooter sector, Polini's focus was also more on CP carburettors and varios for maxi scooters and injection systems for the Yamaha T Max. The new BMW scooter was already on site as a Polini variant and will certainly not only be used as a decoration have served.

Pinasco

What we especially liked about Pinasco was that they were on one new 213 cylinder kit work. The cylinder head is screwed eight times. The design of the boost ports and overflows appear a bit old-school in direct comparison to the older layout, Pinasco finally expects more performance.

Furthermore, Pinasco shows crankshafts (which unfortunately have not only proven themselves in the past) and a Smallframe Fir tree with 10/14/18/20 teeth, probably for the original gearbox of the Vespa Smallframe.
Pinasco also jumped on the Vespatronic ignition train and presented his own variant of a Vespa ignition.

NUOVA MAZZUCHELLI

Nuova Mazzuchelli presented the tried and tested long-stroke shaft made from the material of the full-cheek shaft. You are hoping for more security against twisting, we are curious!

Nuova Mazzuchelli PX200 long stroke shaft imp

VESPA

Vespa: the shooting star was the new one Vespa Primavera. Appealing look on 11 inches with a revolutionary front wheel guidance. We are curious to see when the first fork will be implanted in a classic Vespa scooter and how it will then work!
We really liked that Piaggio remembered its origins - Vespa - and gave a small overview of the Vespa 98, a U-model, SS90, Primavera, ET3 and PK.

MALOSSI

... unfortunately nothing captivated us. New Varios for maxi scooters such as BMW 650 are not quite our business. Otherwise primarily news for 4 strokes and product maintenance in the classic area without setting accents.

MONEY

Quattrini: This “madman” can't help but show off his new engine case and cylinder. I think the pictures say it all ...

CLASSIC VESPAS

Most of all, we were pleased with the steadily improving supply of original spare parts for classic Vespas. Many spare parts that are no longer available, especially for PK, are being reissued (dead people live longer ;-))
The presentation of the sheet metal parts for Vespa was total madness: COMPLETE SMALLFRAME BODIES are no longer a foreign word:

  • the left part of the Smallframe Stern,
  • the sheet metal part above the rear wheel,
  • everything will be relaunched!

PEUGEOT

Peugeot presented its new scooter DJANGO. Another retro scooter with the well-known engines. At first glance we found it too bulky, but over time it became more pleasing as a single-seater in particular.

Our summary:
Another nice trip to the promised land, where it all began with Vespa and Lmbretta!

New Vespa shock absorbers with TÜV

What was the nicest thing: parallel to our trip to Milan, Italy, are the new ones bgm PRO SC shock absorber for the Vespa GS160 & Vespa SS180 arrived.

Vespa shock absorber in front -BGM PRO SC / F16- Vespa GS160 / GS4 (VSB1T), SS180 (VSC1T)

And of course like all bgm PRO SC shock absorbers with TÜV / ABE!

The BGM PRO SC / F16 is the first sport shock absorber specifically for the swing arm the Vespa GS160 / GS4 / SS180 models was developed! During development, attention was paid to the special requirements of the large models with their high possible payload and top speed, and the damper was designed accordingly.
So it's not just a converted damper for 50cc models!

Shock absorbers from the bgm PRO SC series are quality suspension for the Vespa with TÜV!
The chassis developed by BGM in Germany is equipped with a ABE available for almost all Vespa scooters.
The shock absorbers are fully adjustable and offer an incomparable driving experience that was previously unknown from a scooter.

  • with ABE
  • specially developed for the GS160 / SS180
  • Available individually or as a set
  • athletic
  • comfortable
  • fully adjustable
  • very durable
  • massive CNC body, anodized
  • high-strength aluminum for low weight
  • large expansion tank directly on the housing
  • Rebound damping 12/16-fold adjustable
  • massive 13,5 mm piston rod
  • stepless adjustment of the spring preload
  • bgm quality assured

From very comfortable to sporty and firm, the BGM PRO SC dampers can! Well-known racing drivers confirm the excellent functionality and superb quality of these struts in numerous races.

Vespa quarantine egg

Vespa has the Vespa quarantine egg presented. First “only” a look towards the future, but in fact the Vespa Quarantasei is probably the most futuristic looking Vespa of all time.

Quarantasei - Italian the number 46 and we know that in 1946 the starting gun was fired for the legend: Wasp started production of the first Vespa.

Designed in the Vespa Pontedera Style Center, the Quarantasei has classic Vespa lines from the original 1945 MP6 prototype, the forefather of all Vespas.

While the design is only a glimpse of possible future models, the engine is very real and will probably be implanted in the upcoming Vespa models. Piaggio develops a new gasoline injection 125cc four-stroke, three-valve with air cooling for the quarantine:

125cc, 11,7 hp at 8250 revolutions per minute and a torque of 7,6 at 7000 revolutions per minute
150cc 13,0 hp at 8000 revolutions per minute and a torque of 9,3 at 6500 revolutions per minute.
