Carole Nash: Scooters & Small Motorcycles

2011 Carole Nash Motorcycle Live

If proof were needed that size doesn’t matter at Carole Nash Motorcycle Live int he UK, the number of small bike and scooter brands confirmed is it.

The line-up includes over ten scooter and motorcycle manufacturers offering lower-capacity bikes – all of which will showcase a wide range of models, including some new launches for 2011 at Carole Nash.

Yamaha’s new EC-03 pure electric scooter will makes its UK debut at The NEC. Slim and compact enough to wheel inside, but punchy enough to cut through rush-hour traffic, the EC-03 defines a new kind of convenient, low-impact urban travel.

Yamaha will also unveil updates to the X-Max and Sport ranges, as well as showcasing the best-selling Vity 125 scooter and the popular YZF-R125 supersport motorcycle.

Italian manufacturer Piaggio will be launching a new 125cc version of its best-selling model, the Typhoon. The ‘Phoon – which has long-been a favourite with inner-city riders and teens alike – has also been aggressively re-styled for a modern, sporty and dynamic look.

Iconic scooter brand Vespa will unveil a range of limited edition models and will also be making a big announcement about the return of a scootering legend.

Also making its debut at Carole Nash Motorcycle Live will be the Generic Epico – an affordable 50cc scooter with perfect power and economy for nippy commuting. The dynamic manufacturer will also showcase the Generic Race 125cc scooter – a sportier model with unique carbon colour options that really stand out on the road.

LML scooters will unveil a new 200cc version of the LML Star 4T – an economical scooter that combines classic retro styling with performance and reliability, offering an ideal solution for urban commuting. For the budget-conscious, the all-new Moto-roma SK-125 will be unveiled for the first time at the Event. The 125 machine has been put through its paces to ensure it gives the reliability and durability you would expect from a quality, commuter motorcycle.

Daelim will showcase a range of its fashionably funky but practical scooters, including the Bad Boy B-Bone – a no-nonsense, hassle-free scooter for riders who just want to get on and go. With the benefit of a 125cc fuel injected four-stroke engine the fully automatic B-Bone offers excellent fuel economy that car-drivers can only dream of.

WK Bikes – which launched a range of lightweight motorcycles and scooters in the UK earlier this year – will introduce the Jetmax 250EFI. The Jetmax is powered by a liquid-cooled, single-cylinder, 249cc, overhead cam engine featuring Bosch fuel injection and drives through a fully automatic transmission.

Sym will also be at the Event with a display of various new models, including the Maxsym – a maxi scooter that comes in 400 and 600cc options – and the Wolf SB12ni motorcycle. Other brands showcasing a wide range of models include Suzuki, Honda, Neco and Boatian – so if it’s a scooter or a small-capacity motorcycle you’re after, you really will be spoiled for choice.
