It looks like even the Razor scooter has been given a retro styled makeover.
Named the “Pocket Mod Bistro”, quite how much it is “Reminiscent of the classic Vespa” and how it “radiates Euro-spy chic” we’re not sure…

Today is your favourite scooter blogger’s birthday!
Happy birthday sir, have a great day!
First there was ABBA’s “Mamma Mia”, then Queen’s “We Will Rock You.” We even have the “Boney M” musical arriving in London’s West End later this year.
However, pretty soon it looks like we will have The Who’s Quadrophenia made into an on stage musical as well.
I wonder if they will have the scooters riding around on the stage?
(note: we just realized the linked story was from 2001â€¦ oh well.)
I’m not quite sure how much motorcycle airbags would help the chap in the video who is riding a sports bike in a t-shirt, but you can’t help the low levels of common sense in some people. Still, great to see this idea/technology put into practice. Personally, I would forget I’m wearing it, and end up looking much like the Michelin man after I forgot to unhook myself.
I found this on a British forum today, it seems like something you’d maybe keep in the trunk of your car for a dire emergency rather than the urban assualt vehicle they are hyping it up to be. Either way, it’s an interesting and fun looking little electric scooter: Do you Ikoo?

After the scooterball posting, I have been exposed to another type of inflatable bike enclosure. This one, however, seems to be a lot more practical. It’s ideal for parking your pride and joy up over the cold months, where riding isn’t an option.
You can find out more about them on their website
This fine example of a scooterball was pointed out to us by POC Phil. It looks like great fun, until you wonder where the exhaust fumes go…
Looks like Piaggio could be investigating the possibilities of a 3 wheeled scooter. Who knows if it will make production… Piaggio X2. Thanks to Art in Memphis for this..
