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.

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.

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.

Dynosession PM tuning cylinder 2T Maxi

We're already on in February this place reported on the new PM cylinder. On Friday we put the new PM tuning cylinder for Piaggio Maxi engines / Gilera Runner & Co. through its paces on the test bench on a customer engine. Since you buy the License to test If you can click into the shopping cart for free, such a diagram is a great thing for the next gasoline talk.

Especially when the cylinder and engine are doing so well. Was on the test engine nothing milled. The rest of the setup consisted of one 25 PHBL carburettors with modified airbox, the original exhaust and a shaft with 'only' 52 mm stroke. Everyone in the test room was amazed that there was 23.4 PS rest on the rear wheel. With slightly lighter weights, the 24 hp mark should be easily cracked. Nice to see in the course of the torque curve in the rear speed range: diagram_1 Diagram_2

The new ones have just arrived Piaggio cylinder from PM tuning.

The Nicasil-coated aluminum cylinders fits the 2-stroke Maximotoren (e.g. Gilera Runner). Tuning legend Paul Melici took on the development of the fast road use had in view. The cylinder layout is coming

  • with four overcurrent channels,
  • two boost ports and
  • one-piece outlet with a width of 44.7 mm (corresponds to 68% chord size).
  • from 25PS at 8.200 rpm and full suitability for everyday use

According to PM, the cylinder is inserted for 25 PS good on the rear wheel without sacrificing durability and suitability for everyday use. The peak performance is moderate with the PM59 exhaust and Dellorto 25 PHBL carburettor 8.200 U / min on. If that's not enough for you, you can still port the cylinder. For this purpose, all sealing and channel surfaces are reinforced with sufficient material. This provides the perfect basis, where you don't break straight into the cooling water or the outside air.
