“I finally know why the Tamoretti 125cc Scooter is one of the most sought after retro scooters in the UK! Looks, style, handling and efficency, this throw back has it all!”

The Tamoretti 125cc is a new scooter with a twist. It’s bodywork resembles the sleek curves of a time gone by yet, somehow, it manages to fit in perfectly with modern day commuters. With our growing fascination for retro things, it’s no surprise the Tamoretti (which comes in a variety of colours to suit), has won the hearts of so many. Unlike it’s twin brother from the past however, this stylish new take on a retro theme won’t guzzle the fuel and make unbearably loud noises, it’ll simply fit right into modern day commuting and turn heads whilst doing it.

The Tamoretti is available from a select group of dealers in the UK, and we’re proud to be a partner. But don’t wait too long to buy this little beauty or you run the risk of getting caught up in limited stocks and you know what that means; no summer joy rides and picnics in the sweltering heat over country roads and through beach-side resorts!
