When scooter news breaks, we put it under a tarp in the garage.

I said it there and I’ll say it here: “Genuine, are you listening?”
I bought a Buddy before they started sending out their bundles of love to new owners. But here I am, riding a Genuine and I’m getting a free shirt from KYMCO.
i’ll say this too, those hats they gave out @ wkrp are pretty nice. i’m not a hat guy, and defiantly not a kymco guy by any stretch, but i’ve worn that hat every day since.
I’d guess Kymco probably took the idea FROM Genuine. And don’t count your t-shirt until it’s hatched, I bet they didn’t anticipate every scooter forum in America linking to the offer, ha.
Genuine’s usually good with the swag, and it’s universally better-looking than Kymco’s. Kymco gave away flesh-colored shirts at Amerivespa that sort of evoke something you’d buy in a NASCAR parking lot. But it’s free! I wear mine ironically.
That’s not fair, actually, Kymco has a decent logo and when they keep it simple it looks good. I like Genuine’s individual scooter logos, but I’ve never been a fan of their main corporate logo, mainly because that Chicago “G” still looks like a Postscript Error every time I see it.
on that note, i’m surprised that EVERY piece of swag from companies other than vespa don’t incorporate a scooter into it somehow.
i mean, wearing something that says “genuine” or “kymco” doesn’t mean anything to anyone other than the people that probably already own one.
I got a free Kymco shirt once. I believe it was used as a grease rag. The two Kymco hats I’ve got will probably have some patches sewn over the Kymco logos. Part of it is that I’m not a kymco guy.
Then again, I’m not a Genuine guy either, but I’d probably wear free Genuine swag.
