Great! Maybe Genuine will follow up with more big wheel model scooters.

Nice! I got kinda spoiled by big wheels. My CityCom just took its last tank of fuel and went to scooter heaven. Shame its not in a 125cc or higher-yet. Nice looking and Im sure it will have the same quality that we have gotten use to with the Buddy's.

Is that made by PGO? Doesn't say what fuel system is. 3 valve, water cooled could be a strong 50.

Interesting that Genuine has sneaked in several interesting new products under the radar. The Venture 50, the Kick 125, and the G400c.

Looks a bit like a SYM Symphony ST to me.

Be wary. Look at that new price....

I'm thinking they're undercutting themselves with low-end garbage. If they were willing to brand them under Genuine, I might have some faith, but since everything under Scooterworks Chicago is about half the price of new Genuine stuff (look at the Go?), I'm really skeptical.

Features include rubber grips and a floormat? Another feature is that it comes in a crate and gets assembled?

I can get the same deal at my local flea market, if I want something that should last a month.

Looks like the scooter is made by a Chinese company called Longjia. They also make a 125cc version.

They also make this neat looking little retro bike branded as an Italjet. The Buccaneer 250i.
