2011 Genuine Scooter Co. Buddy 170i

Intro

The Genuine Scooter Co was created in 2002 as the creation of Philip McCaleb, who opened Scooterworks USA in 1989 and became the primary go-to place for scooter parts and service shortly thereafter. McCaleb’s Genuine Scooter Co is also a stunning success in the scooter niche. The Genuine Scooter Co Buddy was introduced in 2008 and received mixed reviews. The scooter offers sufficient under seat storage for an average helmet and a sporty look that make it stand out from competitors.

The 2011 Genuine Scooter Co Buddy is available as a 50-cc, a 125-cc and a 170i, which gets 70 mpg with its 168-cc, single-cylinder engine. The Buddy typically has speeds of up to 67 miles per hour, dependent on the weight of the rider. With smooth acceleration and impressive performance, the Genuine Scooter Co Buddy delivered on all promises and exceeded average expectations. However, it does not compete with performance scooters that are also in its class. It is, at its core, a simple and reliable scooter that can offer great fuel economy and basic transportation needs.

The Genuine Scooter Co Buddy also has a feature many scooters do not offer, and that is an unlimited mileage warranty of one or two years and roadside assistance. These reassurances do well in a niche where the rider is typically left to his or her own devices shortly after the purchase of a scooter.
