welcome to the february edition of scootering

Harking back to my column in the December edition of Scootering, I used the phrase: “It’s gonna get worse before it gets better” in regard to the timing of the Covid vaccine being released, but still facing the juxtaposition of an imminent spike in winter cases. As I write this column, we are at the pinnacle of that spike, and it definitely FEELS like anything resembling happier times is but a distant memory (or as Bob Mortimer would say, not so much a memory… more like fingerprints on an abandoned handrail). However, despite being in the eye of the storm right now, I remain optimistic that 2021 will be a better year for all of us. It may be off to a slow beginning, and not the ‘explosive launch from…

sip speedo!

SIP speedometers have revolutionised the speedometer market since their first appearance in 2010. Features that were previously only possible with many additional instruments have been integrated into one – and with maximum understatement. Now they are available in two additional versions also for VNA-VNB vehicles as well as for lamp-bottom/ wideframes from V30 to VL. The latter design also fits many ACMA and for example Motovespa vehicles and the like. The speedometers need 12v power supply, as these vehicles provide only after conversion to PX, Vespatronic or SIP performance ignition. Those who want to stick to their original 6v on-board electrics, however, can still power the instruments using an external battery. For this purpose, a charge level indicator is available in the tachometers, which reminds the user to charge the…

malossi performance air filters

The range of standard air filters are designed to replace the OE filter element and are available in either a flat sponge configuration, or dedicated panel filters for certain Maxi scooters. Both styles of filter utilise a special fine sponge material to remove smaller particles compared to the original filter, while maintaining a higher flow rate of air through the filter. Furthermore, certain models of scooter can benefit from the Double Red sponge filter, which uses a second even finer sponge layer to remove microscopic dust particles. This provides extra protection to the engine from airborne contaminants. Over and above the standard replacement range of air filters, Malossi offers a vast selection of styles and sizes of performance air filters, catering for most scooters and lightweight motorcycles.
