Why a scooter?
Why a cycle?

Walk over, sit down and drive away.

It is that simple.

When I told my wife I was going to design a scooter, she laughed and said: "Slow with little wheels!"

But who says they have to be little?


I had a lot to do with the development of this kind of motorcycle. Today's touring machines are sophisticated and comfortable, but essentially the same kind of motorcycle I designed in 1977!

Modern touring cycles are hard to get on and off because you must climb up and throw your leg over all that stuff. Frankly, I'm surprised we put up with this.
Is it Retro or is it Futuristic?

Everything we like about the 1950s is here! Portholes, tailfin, ribbed bumpers, Tu-Tone 50s colors. There has never been anything like this before.

Ask yourself: "Do I want to look like everyone else?"
