Open Day SC September 2023

Our second #OpenDaySC this year was actually planned as a small end to the season. (see Open Day April here) With the fantastic sunshine continuing, there is fortunately no question of the end of the season.

In addition to our Open Day classics such as free use of the test stand, the large private and SC parts market, there were also some new program items.

Vespa V98

This Vespa V98 was at the Open Day for the second time and on its own. When have you seen this before? And then almost in the wild...

The Vespa 98 was the first mass-produced Vespa from Piaggio. It was built between 1946 and 1947 and is divided into four series: V.98/1 and V.98/2 and from 1947 V.98/3 and V.98/4, although the modifications were insignificant. The V98 has a 98 cc engine, a three-speed gearbox and a top speed of 60 km/h. The leg shield is evenly curved. There is no main stand and for parking it is leaned on an outrigger that protrudes from the rear running board on the left and right.

Veybach Racing – Custom Paint Ciao 

One of the numerous highlights was the premiere of Dirk Hövelmann's Ciao, which tells us:

“Only through the support of the entire team, (my business partners @pulverdesigngibesch, @hapebikes, @scootercenter and my friend @rolfbubmann) the project was finally presented just in time for #OpenDaySC!”

All details will follow soon here in the blog!

SC program

bgm team

The bgm team was available to answer questions about new products and developments all day long. And not just about our own brand but also about the latest highlights like this CMV 244the Vape ignitionsthe bgm Big box exhaust algae and much more.

Photo box

At the nuclear Photo box Around 50 classic cars and their drivers gathered. The majority - as expected - Vespas. Followed by 12 Piaggio mopeds, four automatics, four mopeds, three Lambretta and two Royal Alloy. All of them will be presented in detail in the blog and the pictures will be available for download.

Test stand

Auf dem test things were similarly lively. Arno and Roland made their debut in the role of P4 operators and did a great job. Despite everything, over 50 runs in 5 hours left my ears ringing.

Basti (Bastian Koch) delivered the most powerful Vespa with his VNB powered by a BFA360: 56 HP!
Meisi (Marc Meis) has parked the most powerful Lambretta on the roll. Marc rebuilt a Targa twin from scratch with the components of his choice and delivered 40 hp.     

The most powerful Ciao delivered a good 10 hp and came from René Klein.

Merchandising stand

The SC merchandise stand and we have adopted the photo box from our Scooterist Weekender from last year as an integral part of the upcoming Open Days.

Our new #RealScooterist shirts and of course the posters were very popular when it came to merchandise. A portion of the proceeds goes to “Halfway through the bar”. Greetings go to Everell!

At minute 1:30 Markus Fröschen's Lambro appears, a vehicle that is so special that our hearts stop for a moment, whether because of its state of preservation or because of its handling skills. 😅

Who, what, how PLATONIKA?

We know our Platónika project now takes a little longer than expected.

But we continue to work hard behind the scenes. And used the project to do a few SC tutorials for you.

Due to various inquiries about who Maryzabel is and how she came to us, Alex has Lanz on the couch for an interview Scooter Center gebeten.

Just as every Vespa has its story, every Vespa driver and of course the male counterparts also have their own story. And one thing is always of interest: How did you get to Vespa? And why, of all things, to ride a scooter. And just then it becomes clear that it may be the Vespa that brings us together. And that this is more important and stronger than the things that could separate us.

Although those who follow us here on the blog or on other channels already know something about me, we fulfilled the wish to tell a little more about me and the Vespa and also Colombia. A country that many people only know from the media and the Platónika project. But that is also a country that beats in two beats.

Vespertine

I introduce you to Vespertine. My first love, the first scooter I bought and which I will keep all my life. After it came “la pelada” another PX from 1994. But I'm not a collector, so my ambition is not to have more. Although here in Germany it is very good for me to have something to drive. So now we will build a platonic love and in time see what comes ...
