As scooters go they're OK, but styling inspired by super motards? In what way. It's just run of the mill scooter styling. It's PR BS and as usual MCN are printing it.

Most bikers are in their forties because bikes are expensive aspirational toys. Look at the difference in price between a sports 50 or 125 and a scooter of the same capacity, you'll be looking at 50% more for the bike than the scooter. Bikes to use as practical transport are few and far between. As such you can't buy the basic small bikes that we used to buy, but that's not the fault of the manufacturers. The manufacturers build what people want to buy. Mainly though, bikes just aren't fashionable among the youth of today. at least in the UK. Sure they probably think something like an RSV4 is cool, but that's not going to make them pay three grand for an RS4 50. It's certainly not going to make their parents pay out three grand. It might make them look at an RSV4 and think "I'll get one of those when I can afford it." And they can't afford it until they are in their forties.
