Could it be true? Read on to discover a bit more on this breaking story.
(Editor: It’s holiday time around the world, and it has had the desired effect on contributor Bill Kesteren who brings us some intriguing news about a new modern classic scooter possibly coming to the United States at some point in the future. Sure, it’s not much of an announcement, but it seems like something is happening and it just might, maybe, result in a new scooter coming to us. Eventually.)
Good tidings we bring
To you and your kin;
Good tidings and cheer
from all of us here,
Scomadi is coming to America,
in the New Year (or sometime in the future, perhaps)
Oh, bring us a blue Scomadi,
Oh, bring us as red Scomadi,
Oh, bring us green Scomadi,
And bring it right here.
The Scomadi Story
In 2005 Paul Melici of PM Tuning Racing Products and Frank Sanderson of Scooter Innovation joined forces to put their combined scooter industry knowledge of over 60 years into a partnership and launch Scomadi Ltd. For those of us new to “Scomadi”, it is an amalgamation of “scooter manufacturing and distribution”.
Through a joint venture and partnership between Frank and Paul and business professionals Pimol Srivikorn and his sister Taya Teepsuwan, a production facility based in Thailand has been established and is currently producing scooters for worldwide consumption. This management team has a wealth of experience in the motorcycle industry and are very confident that they can produce high-quality products for their rapidly expanding worldwide market, potentially including North America.
Scomadi has been welcomed by scootering enthusiasts worldwide. A rapidly expanding dealership network in the UK, Europe, Oceania, South America and Asia has seen Scomadi take its place amongst the iconic predecessors who have inspired its creation.

Scomadi Ltd is a registered company in England and Wales, (Registration No: 05377475).
The scooters are not currently available in the United States, however, Scomadi says that they are currently working with an unnamed US importer on US DOT/EPA certification to enable them to make the range available.
