    Sales of (RED) Vespa Will Raise Money For The Global Fund
    The Piaggio Group and (RED) announce the start of a partnership in support of raising funds to finance programmes that battle against AIDS. Attending the event that launched collaboration between Piaggio and (RED) was also Bill Gates who, with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, is one of the main global protagonists in the battle for health and wellbeing in developing countries.
     
    It will be Vespa, the most beloved and famous two-wheeler brand in the world, that develops a (RED) vehicle. From the sale of each unit, $150 (USD) will go toward supporting the activities of the Global Fund for the battle against AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria. Two prestigious brands, recognised all over the world, combine forces in the battle for a world where no child will be born with the HIV virus.
     
    “The partnership with (RED), one of the most prestigious institutions in the world, represents another concrete commitment by Piaggio in this area”. The Piaggio Group CEO and MD, Roberto Colaninno, emphasises “We are happy and proud today to have been chosen by (RED) to represent the mobility sector as one of their partners. This will be a global collaboration between two organisations recognised all over the world as symbols of professionalism and excellence”.
     
    The Vespa (RED) that will be presented in its definitive form at the next Eicma show (Milan from 10 to 13 November) was on display today in Rome as a sneak peek during a Global Fund event at the National Institute of Health.
     
    The Vespas that are manufactured in partnership with (RED) will be sold in Europe, Asia, the Pacific and the United States. The first group of Vespa (RED) vehicles will go on sale in December 2016, to coincide with (RED)’s Shopathon campaign.
     
    Founded in 2006 by Bono and Bobby Shriver, (RED) has contributed $350 million (USD) to the Global Fund in the battle against AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. These funds have arrived in Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Rwanda, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania and Zambia, with 100% of the resources destined to activities on site. (RED)'s support for the Global Fund has had an impact on more than 70 million people with prevention, treatment and consulting operations, as well as HIV tests and assistance services.
     
    Deborah Dugan, CEO, (RED) said: “ We’re honoured to have Piaggio join the AIDS fight with the launch of their iconic (Vespa) RED that will raise money to support the critical work of the Global Fund.”
     
    With more than 18 million vehicles sold around the world since 1946, Vespa is a unique case in the history of individual mobility. First introduced as the vehicle that would relaunch Europe in the post war era, it has become a symbol of freedom, uniting different generations all over the five continents and today it is a globally recognised icon of Italian style.
     
    The Piaggio Group has historically been sensitive to the problems connected with protecting the health of children. An example of this is the recent Vespa For Children initiative, an international charity that, in collaboration with the Bambino Gesù Hospital of Rome, paved the way for a medical-surgical programme at the National Hospital For Pediatrics of Hanoi in Vietnam.

    Australia's First Custom Scooter - Hunter Scooter Is Here!
    Scootersales.com.au were lucky enough to be given the opportunity to check out the new Hunter Scooter. This low, stretched scooter with fat rear tyre is definitely something else. Hunter are a new Australian boutique scooter company for the rider that wants something different (limited to 76 per year) with the ability to stamp their own personal mark on it through endless customisation options. After having fun riding it around Sydney's Eastern Suburbs it proved a real head turner. We look forward to getting to know Hunter Scooter and bringing you more updates and reviews. Luke Sommen of Hunter Scooter kindly introduced us to the 150cc model after just getting back from a factory visit and has reason to be excited.
    Customisable, powerful and seriously cool.
    The Hunter is Australia's first custom petrol powered 150cc scooter, street legal ready for you to cruise around town on. Turn heads on the street, show it off at the beach, add some fun to your commute to work, or cruise just for the enjoyment of it. Hunter have created it, now it’s up to you to customise it. While this very well could become your new passion, you also have some serious benefits to justify your Hunter purchase. Save money on fuel, rego, insurances, never pay for parking, minimise your time in traffic, legally lane split, use bus lanes (check your state’s road rules) all while reducing your carbon footprint!
    Owning a Hunter can also become a great hobby as you can spend hours tinkering, adding to, and customising your Hunter in your own garage or shed. With a myriad of aftermarket options this could be a life-changing purchase that will allow you to express your individuality in a mass produced world. If you don't have a garage but want to play around with your scoots, there are shared workshops where you can go and use their tools or mechanics that offer modifications. Contact Hunter Scooter for our current list of spaces available to help you deck out your ride.
    The Hunter Scooter look originated in the alleyways and chop shops of Tokyo in the late 1990’s, where ‘originality defined character’. These little bare-boned scooters were transformed into street beasts: with the addition of extension arms on the drivetrains, dropped suspension, cut off sports exhausts, front foot pegs for the cruiser look and, most importantly, a fat piece of rubber on the rear.
    These bikes set back their owners loads of cash in customisation. The first expense was their original purchase, which in most cases was in the form of a 50cc Ruckus or Zoomer platform. As customisation became more widespread, the availability of modifications for this type of scooter grew. Manufacturers were offering so many parts, spares and tweaks, bike owners were spending up to three times their original investment on parts to modify and separate their scooter from the pack. They look great, but took a lot of funds and hard work to get there.
    Hunter wanted to create something just as mean, but at an affordable price that has ‘street cred’ straight outta the crate. The Hunter Scooter has been many years in the making and they have been through many lengthy stages of research and development to get the fine tuning just right. Hunter Scooter have been able to source a great quality manufacturer with an output of 100,000 bikes a year, plus a state-of-the-art factory with high levels of quality control at international standards. We couldn’t be more excited about this incredibly cool bike, the first bike of its kind into Australia.
    With its four stroke 150cc air cooled motor, Hunters claim a top speed of 90km/hr. Although, Hunter Scooters have clocked it at 109km/hr at Eastern Creek Raceway just outside of Sydney with a slight headwind. This top speed is adequate for city commuting, running around town or heading to the beach.
    Hunter Scooter offer a 1 year/10,000km motor warranty. Although Hunter is a new company in Australia, the Hunter factory in China has been producing high volumes of bikes for local and American markets for over 13 years. Additionally, as these machines are hand-crafted using the latest technologies, each will yield unique characteristics and personalities. Rest assured you are fully backed by the Australian supplier who is also ordering OEM spare parts for your Hunter (including the fatty rear tyre).
    How much is a Hunter?
    Hunter Scooters retail for AUD $4990 + ORC (GST included).
    Contact www.HunterScooter.com.au for further information. First 76 Hunter Scooters are selling fast and generating a lot of interest so be quick to get one of the first in Australia.
