Amongst all the hubbub at Dealer Expo 2013, Genuine Scooters mentioned that they had a special visitor to their Miami dealership this week.
Kim Kardashian and Jonathan Cheban showed up to tour the Genuine Scooter dealer in Miami Beach, located at 1708 Alton Road, and left with new Genuine Buddy 125cc scooters from America's favorite scooter company, Genuine Scooters of Chicago, Illinois.
Of course, the readers of this column (and Genuine Scooters) know that scooters are cool, roadworthy and manufactured with the utmost care, but cool enough for Kim Kardashian? Apparently so!
Genuine Scooters is well known to two-wheel fanatics world-wide, but now they’re primed for a viral explosion of interest in the Buddy Scooters after seeing the Kardashian family ride our Buddy Scooters.
It's not the first time Genuine has enjoyed a little of the shine of showbiz -- its scooters were featured in Tom Hanks' "Larry Crowne" movie, and will be prominently featured in Selena Gomez's next film, "Spring Breakers."
But make no mistake -- Genuine Scooters may indeed be stylish enough for scene-makers from coast-to-coast, but without substance wedded to its natural good looks, the company wouldn't be enjoying the approval of true blue scooter aficionados world-wide.
Riding a Genuine Scooter is Fun with a capital F, and hands-down the coolest way to get from point A to point B in these expensive gasoline times. For the record, our Buddy Scooters will take you around ninety miles on a wee gallon of fuel.
As Philip McCaleb, president of Genuine Scooters says, "Today Hollywood, tomorrow the world. Feel the love, it's GENUINE."
