Rumor has it that a few of our local competitors have opted to open on America's birthday. Not Sportique Scooters. We will not fail to celebrate this wonderful country with friends and family on this Independence Day. Nor will we fail to remember the many men and women to have given their lives to protect our freedom to enjoy such a holiday. So, if you were hoping to pop by on Saturday, July 4th we regret the inconvenience. We hope you have a fabulous fourth and we'll look forward to returning to our normal course of business on Tuesday, July 7th when our hours will be 10-6.

Happy New Year, scooterists of Colorado! Sportique is proud to be where Genuine Scooters come from and we're excited about the changes in the lineup for 2015.
To begin with, Genuine added a new version of the popular Rough House 50 two-stroke. It's called the Rough House Platinum and it features larger diameter "streetier" tires, flat titanium paint, LED lighting, a special rifled front brake disc, hand guards, braided brake line and contoured sport seat. This promises to be the hottest 50 of the year.
Additionally, Genuine has added new colors including flat white, glossy titanium and matte titanium making America's Favorite Scooter Company even more exciting. Don't buy ANY new scooter without riding a Genuine scooter first. These machines are simply a cut above the rest.
We're lucky to live in Colorado - a place with four distinct seasons but with mild enough winters to allow for some wonderful riding opportunities. We're not inclined to "winterize" our scoots here, but we can take some basic steps to make sure our machines are ready to ride when we are.

We have on consignment this gorgeous 1972 Triumph Tiger 650 which was fully rebuilt and painted in 2012 by Isles M/C in Denver - the area's top British shop. The odometer reads 8,046 miles but the refurb was done 1800 miles ago. Bike includes service manual, NOS rubber tank pads (not installed), original tool kit and clean Colorado title. $5900 firm.
The Outdoor Power Equipment Institute (OPEI) has issued a stern warning to its members that gasolines with more than 10% ethanol can (and will) damage the small engines used in mowers, trimmers, tillers, pumps, etc as well as in Utility Vehicles.
Well, guess what else has an engine similar to these machines? That's right; your scooter does. All scooter owners, especially those in Colorado (where ethanol is extremely common) must be wary of the fuels they are pumping into their scooters. We have seen a rash of scooters recently brought in for rough running, having difficulty coming off idle and stalling. Our technicians have determined that bad gas has been a frequent cause for these fuel-system related problems.
We are recommending to all our customers, including those who operate 300cc and larger machines, LOOK BEFORE YOU PUMP to make sure that the gasoline you use has no more than 10% ethanol content.
