Let’s get the DealerExpo ball rolling again (finally!) with a booth that didn’t offer many surprises, but gave us a first look in person at a few bikes we’d been hoping to see in person. The return of the Stella was of course big news to long-time scooter fans, but only one avocado model was on display at the booth shared by sister companies Genuine Scooter Co. and Scooterworks. Presumably, they sold the rest of their first small shipment since 2006.
Alongside the Rattler 110, The new Roughhouse 50 was on display. The “Use Only Under Adult Supervision” stencil from the discontinued Black Cat was visible on the floorboards of the prototype.
Scooterworks’ side of the booth featured a sampling of their parts and accessories available to dealers (and, ultimately, customers), including pipes, brake upgrades, chrome, brake pads, cables, apparel, and performance parts from suppliers such as Prima, NCY, and Malossi. A new Scooterworks catalog is due soon, which generates even more excitement than a new IKEA book in a lot of 2sb readers’ homes.
Stay tuned for more news from DealerExpo 2008!
