Whether you’re a scooter owner past or present, or even if you’ve just thought of buying one, Scooter! will keep you entertained from start to finish. It’s a comprehensive look at one of the most popular two-wheeled vehicles in the world, with archive footage from the pre-helmet days of the 40s, 50s and 60s right up to road tests with the latest models and a trip to the NEC Motorbike and Scooter show.

We trace the scooter back to its spiritual home of Italy and visit Florence - scooter capital of the world, and drop in to the Piaggio factory in Pontedera where almost 2000 scooters are produced each day! For scooter fanatics we also visit the Piaggio museum, which contains every major milestone in the famous company’s 60 years of scootering history.

Back in the UK we follow the Lambretta Club of Great Britain as they celebrate 50 years of the classic scooter with a trip to the Isle of Man. All styles and designs of scooter are on display as the 1200+ members take to the world famous TT course in swarms.

Scooter! celebrates the passion and enjoyment that has created a way of life and has secured the scooter’s survival on our roads and in our hearts. This will quickly become ‘your ultimate guide’!
