Metal bodywork Scomadi TT confirmed | NEWS
Scomadi’s tease campaign about its new Turismo Technica model continues with a few more annoyingly sparse drips of information. Most interestingly is the confirmation of metal bodywork.
As suspected in our last article on the Turismo Technica model, Scomadi have announced the pressing of steel bodywork for their forthcoming model.
The steel panels and cast alloy headset – produced at the new factory in Thailand – mark a move to a more premium feel for the brand.
This should go some way towards silencing those who considered Scomadi expensive for a plastic scooter made in China; which obviously it won’t be in the future.
Obviously, Scomadi’s ‘rivals’ at Royalloy (RA) are working in the same direction with their announcement of full aluminium bodywork and cast headsets on their premium models, however the announcement of a court case puts another hurdle in front of Hanway and their UK importers MotoGB.
Either way, it looks like there are more metal-bodied retro scooters likely to hit British soil before the end of 2017. The question is; which ones?
All this changing of spec is obviously a pain in the arse for us at SLUK.
No sooner have we designed a new screen for the current Scomadi TL headset than they announce that they’re changing to a new version…
