      It’s looking like June realistically, earlier than that for the first 100.

    If the engine is a “replique” of the Rotax-engine everybody should be smiling! I have strong Vespa and even stronger Lambretta-background. The only bike that convinced me slightly to the so called “Darkside” was the original Aprilla Scarabeo. I did a few affords with automatics, they are funny for a while, but a pain to maintain… Bought the Scarabeo, did use it to commute to work, was fun to ride, low fuel consumption…. liked it, went to a Rally in France, and some of the Speed Demons took the piss out of me , though there was a high level of those skirted GTsss around??? The Rotaxengine is a real winner, and if the Scomadi-one has the same build-quality I would give it a go. There are a few Scarabeos around with 100tkm on the clock, which most bikes will never see. I quite like the design, and the opportunity for normal weirdos to enter the scene without being a motorcycle-mechanic to enjoy yourself is good. I just bought another Scarabeo….. will keep this as an engine-transplant! All the respect for PM and their effort, to bring a european scooter on the road !!!! Keep up the good work !!!!

    It looks like my video test riding the prototype scomadi 300 cc around manchester will have to go into the scootering archives for the moment. at least i got to try it out even though it never went into full production

      It was that video that made me put my money down all those months ago. Even going for the same colour set up as the 300 demo model.

    Fantastic news , this is what I have been hoping for . my Girlfriend has a GTS 300 nothing wrong with it but I just didn’t particularly want one but loved riding it through country roads and across town.

    I have a bigger 800cc bike that I enjoy riding just as much but in a different way . my deposits been down since dec 2014 but for a production one not the first 100. Did they say if the first production ones were going to be ABS models ? or later ones and if there was going to be a price increase for this ?
    cheers you are doing a good job the review was spot on to what I thought it would be since following the story of development .

      Thanks Webjunky, you won’t be disappointed. I’d imagine the first 100 will be non-ABS but I’m not sure. Although I’d be hoping for non-ABS if it was me because you won’t be able to buy one without after this year.

    I am not too worried either way . ABS on a bike is fine I have had it a few years now , given the choice on a big bike I would have it every time but with an automatic scooter as I tend to use the back brake more if the back was to step out under hard braking its easier to get under control .

    13.7 BHP at the rear wheel ? Did you do a dyno run then ? I thought it was closer to 18? Would be interesting to see any results if you did I am guessing that is a typo error tho
    given the test you did with the GTS . Cheers

      Yes, that was confusion from their spec sheet between kW and HP – now corrected. Sure that Paul told us it was 18hp on his dyno…

    ok love the report guys and the the whole set up…..Ace. One small question on the 200 where does the battery live? I couldn’t spot in the photos and I just wondered as I planned to wire a 12volt outlet plug into mine in toolbox a la sat nav phone charger etc.. as soon as it arrives. Hoped to do Paddy’s run with Broixey in June but my GTS is on standby??

      Hi Bill, the battery is located in front of the fuel tank below the seat arch.

    cheers mate I thought that’s where it lived and that’s ok to run a few wires around from the toolbox….perfect.

      We reckon you need both, everyone needs a 2-stroke stinkwheel in their life 🙂
