Earlier this week we picked the prototype Scomadi 400 up from Scomadi HQ in Lancashire, ScooterNova editor, Andy Gillard rode it back to the Midlands and he will also be riding it 2-up to Scooterist Meltdown in Kalkar, Germany later this afternoon.
The scooter is fitted with Scomadis new rear luggage system. It consists of a set of panniers and rear bag, all connecting via a nifty mechanism that attaches quickly and easily to the rear rack. They also have a larger bag option and a large tunnel bag. The luggage will also be made to fit Lambretta sprint racks and should make a very useful luggage option.
We road tested the Scomadi 400 in our exclusive first test last year, you can read all about that and see the video here. Andy will be putting close to 500 real-world riding miles on it this weekend going to Germany and back, he also put another 150 on the clock when he picked it up. Whilst in Germany punters will be taking it out for test rides on Saturday as well. We’ll have a full report from Scooterist Meltdown on SLUK next week. We’ll also have a road test on the 400 from Andy once he’s finished with the scooter.
When will it be available?
Sadly we won’t be seeing production-ready versions of the Scomadi 400 in 2018 so if you want some big-powered retro action you’ll have to wait a bit longer. The team behind Scomadi are very busy developing lots of things behind the scenes and of course getting their new factory in Thailand production ready. We’ll bring you more news as we get it.
