The first day of winter isn't until the 21st of December. With that said, we've had some extremely chilly days and evenings that sure have felt as if winter was already upon us. Denver experienced a tremendous autumn and riding hasn't quite yet stopped for a lot of people. However, for those who don't like braving the cold via two wheels all year round, there are some things you want to do for your machine before you putting it away in the garage for the next 3-4 months. Every Spring we see a lot of scooters coming in with what we call, "Sitting Disease". It happens to the best of us - you're riding your scooter one day but the snow hits the next. You have plans to take it out on the next nice day, but then seemingly out of nowhere, a few months go by and you've done…
There's finally an electric scooter you can count on one we can also stand behind. The GenZe, by Mahindra, is a blast in a half. The GenZe scooter is also made in Ann Arbor Michigan, not China like most electric scooters on the market. Come in and see what the craze is all about.
The Monster Ride is one of our favorite traditions at Sportique Scooters. This year's ride will be a special one because it's the first time we've held it since moving out of both old locations! In previous years there have been hundreds of scooterists that show up for one last hurrah before winter comes. Whether you have a 50cc or a 500cc scooter, everyone is welcome :) You may meet new friends and you'll probably see parts of Denver you never knew existed. The ride will leave promptly at noon, so get here early and hang out. When we get back to Sportique, Jared will be grilling up some burgers and dogs for us all. We'll be closing the shop that day so we can all ride with you :) Mark your calendar and tell a friend who has a scooter!
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.
