welcome to the 400th edition of scootering!

This month's a ‘big one’ for Scootering magazine, so we’ve included a few rather poignant articles, images and references throughout the edition, to help draw it all together. Ihope you enjoy reading this edition as much as I've enjoyed putting it together. Amidst the work the team and I have put into creating this celebratory edition, I took a little time out to reflect on the fast-paced digital age we are all now engulfed in. As I pondered the various digital platforms, from dot.com booms through social media, one thing which stood out like a sore thumb is the poisonous element of Facebook. When I thought of all the websites which popped up, way back when, as various businesses first got a chance to share info and sell services/ products over…

scooter world 2020

The Scooter World halls return to Newark County Showground over the weekend of January 11-12, 2020 to form their part in the Carole Nash sponsored Classic Bike Guide ‘Winter Classic’ event. Since its inception in 2013, Scooter World has expanded over the years, culminating in 2019 with what was arguably one of the largest scooter shows in the UK with 145 scooters on display. Plans are already moving forward for 2020 and this includes the expansion of the Scooter World Custom Show with more entry categories – plus a monetary prize to go with every single trophy!

scooters india, another one bites the dust?

As we continue to showcase the final days of LML’s factory in Kanpur, it seems that news from Lucknow isn’t much better. If local news reports are to be believed, it appears that the Government of India’s patience with the loss-making concern is all but exhausted. Although it’s decades since complete scooters rolled off the production line, the factory has continued to produce spares and three-wheelers. Having failed to secure a private buyer, it seems the Ministry of Finance may order the factory to cease operations in the very near future. The Government, which owns 97.7% of SIL shares, has a preferred option of selling off the plant and machinery, but has also indicated that it may be prepared to dispose of ‘non core assets’ to improve cash flow. Areport has been…
