Kymco unleashes the MyRoad 700i

Written by

Now available for demo rides at Sportique Scooters, Colorado Springs is the 2014 Kymco My Road 700i. The Myroad 700i is the newest addition to the Kymco line up, and now currently, the fastest scooter in production! This scoot rides like a dream and feels as if one were riding on air. We assure you that this is an investment well worth it! Ride it and beleive it!

***SOLD***

Sportique is pleased to have for sale one of the most immaculate Heinkel scooters in North America, if not the world. This beautiful Tourist 103 A2 has been entrusted to us on consignment and is available for sale at a price of $6,900.

Its restoration was performed in Germany and was painstakingly documented. The seller will include all of the papers with purchase. This is a 175cc 4-cycle machine with a 4-speed hand-shifted transmission, much like that of a Vespa or Lambretta scooter. The tourist features an electric starter triggered by the ignition key. Its 12-volt electric system is powered by twin 6-volt batteries. A Battery Tender is installed and is included with purchase.

Absolutely everything on this Heinkel Tourist functions perfectly. It is in need of nothing but a new home. Transportation can be arranged and crating is available for a small fee. The Heinkel is located at our Englewood store. Inquire with either Jared Berger or Coin Shattuck. The price is in no way negotiable and represents a loss to the seller, who spent a lot of money importing the scooter.

Kymco to introduce a 700cc super scooter

Written by

What has two cylinders, eight valves, seven hundred cubic centimeter powerplant and room to take Kareem Abdul-Jabar as a passenger?

The Kymco My Road 700, that’s what.

Slated for introduction late in 2013, this maxi maxi scooter is likely to be dubbed the “Xciting 700” for the American market. A test scooter has already been in the state of Colorado, where it was made available to the motorcycle media. Brian Nelson of MotorcycleDaily.com put the big scooter though its paces on the roads near Grand Junction and crafted a favorable piece about it. Click here for a the link.

Sportique is accepting deposits on this, the biggest of the big scooters, which we suspect will fetch a price between $7,000 and $8,000.

When temps creep up into the 90’s and beyond we begin to field calls from folks who’s scooters are stalling and sluggish. Intense heat can cause a myriad of mechanical complications. Worry not, though, friends. Scooters were made for Summer fun and, if you understand the sources of heat-related performance issues, you can sail through the season problem free.


These are the things we typically see go wrong with scooters when it’s extremely hot:

Sportique has just received its first shipment of the new 2013 Kymco Movie 150 scooters and we’re already predicting box office success for the Taiwanese-made mid-sized sport commuter...

The Chinese scooter scourge continues

Written by

Thanks to stricter controls at America's ports and tighter enforcement of EPA and DOT regulations Nationwide, we have seen a significant slow down in sales of counterfeit scooters made in China. Several local retailers have folded up their tents and gone home. Unfortunately, new opportunists have moved in. We see their advertisements an Craig's List all the time.

The "rub" against Chinese scooters is more commonly understood by consumers than it has been in the past, but there are still some folks out there who do not understand that these cheap scooters are a complete waste of good money.

If you are shopping for a new scooter, please avoid ones made in China and distributed via the web, by a fly-by-night, unlicensed retailer, at a flea market / swap meet or on Craig's List. Most of these scooters, 50cc models in particular, are imported illegally and fail to meet even the most basic safety and quality stardards. They are disposable. Parts and service resources are not available in many cases.

There's a reason that a decent scooter costs more. Dozens of reasons, actually. Chinese machines are not "real". They're fake - and they're garbage. Before you buy one do some research. You wouldn't buy a knock-off of an Apple computer, would you? We didn't think so. Avoid sellers like THIS ONE.

Scooter RACING? Sure. Here's some video.

Written by

This is a scooter racing video we dug up from Mile High Mayhem back in 2008.

Most local scooter racers ride vintage machines but modern scooters are fun to race, too.

Riders can schedule practice laps on the cart course at IMI Motorsports in Dakono.
