We see a lot of batteries at Sportique Scooters; new ones, old ones, strong ones and a lot of dead ones. Here's a really easy to understand, informative video by "The Engineer Guy" who explains how the lead acid battery in your scooter works and why it discharges, how it discharges and why it won't stay charged if you let it sit for an extended period of time.

The Genuine Buddy has officially been around for a decade. It seems like just a few short years ago that we started selling these wonderful machines. We still see many 2006 models coming in for tuneups and tire changes and upgrades. This new Diamond Blue edition is limited and comes with a few bells and whistels, the low profile seat and whitewalls being two of them. The scooter comes in both a 50cc and a 125cc. We currently have one of each. The color really has to be seen in person - it's gorgeous
We recently got our hands on a super clean, super fast Iltaljet Dragster 180 with loads of upgrades. This is one performance scooter that enthusiasts shouldn't pass over. The Dragster is a very unique, fork-less machine that is no longer made but highly coveted worldwide. While Adam has personally taken it out 80mph (with room to keep going), we've been told that it has a top speed of 120mph. Here's what the $8,000 price tag will get you, besides having the fastest scooter in the Denver Metro area.

We're lucky to live in Colorado - a place with four distinct seasons but with mild enough winters to allow for some wonderful riding opportunities. We're not inclined to "winterize" our scoots here, but we can take some basic steps to make sure our machines are ready to ride when we are.
