We are for you at the Intermot in Cologne

intermittent: Scooter Center Mandatory date!

Full throttle! When hundreds of thousands of scooters and motorcycle fans from all over the world come together in Cologne in October 2016 and for five days nothing counts other than displacement, horsepower and a lot of gas - then it's finally INTERMOT again and that Scooter Center is at the start for you!

++ Piaggio

+++ Ciao Bella - who would have thought that we would miss the PX one day?

The Vespa PX is history. Even if it will be exhibited again at the Intermot 2016, it belongs to the “old iron” with the Euro 3 standard. All orders that were received up to June 2016 will, according to Piaggio, still be delivered.

+++ GTS 300 special model Touring, with ABS and Euro 4 & less power

By converting to Euro 4, the Vespa Gts 300 lost half a horsepower and is now with it 21,5 PS delivered

+++ New GTS 125 with Euro 4 and new engine

The Vespa GTS125 also comes with Euro4 and has a completely new engine from the Piaggio medley 125 get.

++ New swallow

A new start for the Schwalbe in 2017? With the latest lithium-ion technology from Bosch and a Range of 150km should the swallow 2017 at a price of 5.000 Euros come on the market. I personally like this one Electric Vespa better.

++ Wilbers front shock absorber for the Vespa GTS - 799 euros

Wilbers - known as a manufacturer of high-end motorcycle suspension struts - now also has a front shock absorber for the Vespa GTS in its range. ABE and a 5 year guarantee may justify it high price of € 799 for the front shock absorber.

That's all for today! Unfortunately no news for classic Vesps so far. Apart from the fact that the Vespa PX is now finally being discontinued, see above.
Have a nice evening! Tomorrow we will be on our way again to the nearby Cologne fair to check out the Intermot for you ...

intermot 2014 do you VESPA? a

Scooter Center at the Intermot 2014

To give you the most interesting news of the Intermot 2014 To present, we tried to get press tickets this year and were able to go to the fair on Tuesday.

Our route naturally led us directly to Hall 7, where Piaggio set up its stand. On the way there we passed the Suzuki booth and we immediately saw a nice study, ok, ok, not a scooter, but since we all have gasoline in our blood, we were also enthusiastic about it.

The Piaggio Vespa stand

Piaggio presented itself on the front with Moto Guzzi and Aprilia and hid the Vespa on the back of the stand. Even if only a few vehicles such as the Vespa 946 or the new Vespa Sprint were presented, the stand was very nicely arranged and we liked it straight away.

Also interesting were small details like the bag for the passage in the style of a spare wheel - we are excited about the prices and will of course also include them in the program.

Vespa bag for the passage

Scomadi - A modern classic

Right next to Piaggio we were initially surprised - a new name but an "old" look: Scomadi!

Scomadi Scooter Lambretta

For weeks, hotly debated in various Internet forums, we were able to take a look at the scooters that are based on the design of the Lambretta GP / DL.

The 50ccm and 125ccm vehicles have the well-known China 4-stroke engines that can be found in pretty much all China scooters at the moment. It gets interesting with the 300ccm model - here the well-known 300ccm engine of the Vespa GTS is installed!


Paul Melici - PM Tuning

The air scoop in the picture, which houses the radiator, is exchanged for a GFK spoiler, the exhaust is optional and is made by Paul Melici from the English tuning company "PM-Tuning". And that was also the first surprise of the day, Paul was there himself and clarified the background of the Scomadi project, which he was instrumental in initiating.

Scomadi Paul Melici & Oliver Kluger

He also presented us his new exhaust systems in the style of a Reso exhaust for the 300ccm Piaggio 4-stroke engines and his new ones Brake calipers for the Vespa PX disc brakes (Already available from us in silver and black) These will soon also be available for the GTS models.

BELL - helmets

Our next stop in Hall 7 was the “BELL” stand. Bell helmets are known for high-quality helmets for bicycles and motorcycles. Since this year will be
BELL helmets finally sold again in Germany and we are proud to be one of the first shops to offer BELL helmets.


We became aware of BELL through their "Custom 500" and "Bullit" models, which BELL manufactures based on original templates from the 60s and 70s: "Not retro. Original."

All helmets have ECE standards, there are 5 different outer shells and the helmets are of the highest quality.

John Wayne drives Vespa?

When strolling through the halls, we still have this "beautiful copy ” noticed:

Somehow it sounds familiar….

We'll be back on Thursday to keep you up to date.


Final - RH-Scooter Cup 2010 at the Harzring

Last weekend the final took place on RH-Scooter Cup 2010 on the Harzring instead.

Since the run at the Intermot in Cologne was canceled at short notice, I came to the Harzring with a 35 point lead as the table leader. Unfortunately, the last time I was out there 3 weeks ago Variomatik and the converter broke so I had to use a different one for this race. I didn't manage to set up the training so well in the short period of time, and that's why I was there Place 3 fully satisfied in qualifying.
The two races in the afternoon were almost the same for me. After a modest start (6th place each after the first lap), I was able to gradually overtake my competition and open both races Place 2 break up!
In the evening there was a humid final party with a championship ceremony that went well into the morning.
This race was the last of the year after a long season.

With a total of 2 victories and 4 second placesn in the 2 / 70ccm class this year I have the Won the 2010 RH-Scooter Cup.

The IDSM / EST I was able to celebrate some successes in 2010:

  1. With 2nd place in Dahlem,
  2. 3rd place on the Sachsenring
  3. and various 4 and 5 places
  4. I reached the 7th place in the annual ranking. (here I was only able to take part in 6 out of 8 events)

Finally, I would like to thank all sponsors and helpers. I especially want to be with the Scooter Center thank you for the great support! Without your help, these results would not have been possible. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!

Thomas Heck
