Genuine Scooter Company has a long-standing tradition of special edition and co-branded scooters. There was the Atomic Fireball Stella back in the day. There was the Black Cat 50cc. The Buddy especially seems to lend itself to special editions. There’s been the international editions, the Black Jack and more recently, the Psycho. Where those bikes were all 125cc and up, their latest special edition, the Lemonhead Buddy, is a 50cc. Featuring white body panels, a yellow seat and plenty of Lemonhead logos throughout.
For those who don’t know, Genuine Scooter Company has a shared origin story with Scooterworks, the mail order scooter parts and accessory company. And if you’ve ever ordered parts or merch from Scooterworks, you know that each order ships with a box or two of Lemonheads, Cherryheads or even Grapeheads recently. In retrospect, it seems like it’d only be a matter of time before a Lemonhead Buddy would show up.
This will be a very special edition in that there will only be 200 produced. MSRP is listed as $2,199.00 plus the customary new scooter fees.
Stay tuned for photos and additional info. Full press release after the break.[Official Press Release]
