Scooter News from the 2005 Dealer Expo
The Powersports Dealer Expo is held every year in the late winter, usually in Indianapolis, Indiana.  Dealers visit the Expo to see all the latest powersports products and accessories. 

The show is mostly focused on accessories, clothing and helmets, but this year there were literally dozens of scooter manufacturers represented.  It looks like motorcycle dealers are starting to get scooter fever and see scooters as a way to boost traffic and revenue.

Here are some photos and information on a few of the scooters at the show.

TGB R50X scooter

New TGB R50X

Front tire of the TGB R50X.  It has disk brakes front and rear.

Malossi-style performance exhaust comes standard!

New TGB Scooter: This is the TGB R50X, one of the nicest-looking scooters at the show.  The TGB representative told me it was there to gauge reaction from the crowd, but it sure looked like a production ready model to me.  Some very nice touches, including a cool miniature spoiler in the back and a tail light that looks like a jet exhaust.  He said the styling cues were supposed to be reminiscent of a fighter jet.  Very cool!

Derbi scooter New Derbi:  Derbi had this fantastic looking scooter-motorcycle on display.  I'm not sure what it's called; there was no literature available and the booth was crowded with people so I didn't get a chance to talk to a representative.  Here's a photo of the instruments:

Derbi scooter prototype Derbi Scooter Prototype:  Derbi also had this scooter-motorcycle on display; calling this a scooter is really stretching the definition.  I couldn't find any information on this one either, and some of the parts had the appearance of a prototype.

Derbi GPR Scooter:  One more Derbi, I guess this is a motorcycle and not a scooter?  I think they called this one the GPR.  Not sure how big it is, the engine looks like a 125cc.
