Headquarters: Chicago, Illinois, United States
Genuine Scooters was founded by a couple of guys selling scooter parts out of an old warehouse in Chicago. They had one thing in mind: Bring a better scooter to the United States.
Genuine has been putting riders (and smiles!) on scooters for more than fifteen years. From our ever-popular Buddy and Roughhouse, to the Hooligan, Venture and Kick, Genuine has introduced scooters to a community of passionate two-wheel enthusiasts who have created a scooter culture that has expanded in ways we never thought possible.
And that expansion continues with the launch of our first Genuine motorcycle called the G400C. With its fuel injected engine and 5-speed transmission, this retro styled motorcycle is the perfect bike for riding on big city streets, passing through small town America and traveling the roads that take you to your destination!
We have tremendous confidence in our product and the Genuine Authorized Dealers who sell them. We’ve backed this confidence with a 2-year Genuine Confidence Warranty and a 1-year Roadside Assistance Program that comes with every vehicle that we sell. So wherever you are, you’re not far from someone you can trust to assist you.
Genuine’s love of two wheels has remained the same since those humble beginnings all those years ago. We want everyone to feel the same passion and excitement that we do when we take one of our scooters or motorcycles for a ride. So what are you waiting for?
Founded in 2002, the company was an extension of the vintage scooter business, Scooterworks USA, which sold vintage Vespa and Lambretta scooters via a mail-order catalog featuring scooter parts and accessories. Scooterworks USA continues and specializes in aftermarket parts and accessories for Genuine, Vespa, Honda, Yamaha, and other scooter brands and parts for Chinese scooters.
Genuine Scooters’ first model was the model year 2002 4-speed manual two-stroke 150cc “Stella” model, manufactured by LML in India. The Stella was successful, and in 2006 the company began a relationship with PGO Scooters, a Taiwanese manufacturer. Genuine developed the “Buddy”, an automatic scooter with a CVT. The Buddy features several engine sizes and versions ranging from 49cc, licensed as a moped in many US states, to 170cc with fuel injection. Later introductions were the Rattler 110 (since discontinued) and Roughhouse 50, designed more aggressively than the previous classic designs, and the Blur 220i (since discontinued), a scooter with a higher-powered fuel injected engine capable of maintaining expressway speeds.
In 2010, Genuine introduced a version of the Stella with a redesigned 150cc four-stroke engine compliant with California emissions standards, and a 170cc version of the Buddy with fuel injection instead of a carburetor. Following these introductions, and as a result of the economic crash of 2008, it received additional capitalization through investment banker Livingstone Partners.
In 2014, the Stella 125 Automatic was introduced, the first Stella with an automatic (CVT) transmission and a newly redesigned high output 125cc engine.
From time to time, Genuine produces special limited-edition scooters. These include a “GB150” version of the Stella with British-themed trim, a Black Cat Fireworks scooter similar to the Roughhouse, a high-performance “Psycho” Buddy 125, A high performance Riot Buddy 50 and Buddy 125, and (in conjunction with neighboring Ferrara Pan Candy Company) the Atomic Fireball Stella and a Lemonhead Buddy 50. In late 2015 they introduced the special diamond edition 10-Year Anniversary Buddy 50 & 125, celebrating ten years of Buddy.
In 2015, a second sister scooter company was created, “Chicago Scooter Company” to offer a value based line of scooters to compete with the lower priced Chinese scooters in the market. As of 2019, their two models are the “go.” and “go. MAX”, both 50cc 4T based scooters.
