Designed for maximum rationality, the Sportcity One’s frame is a classical open cradle frame in high strength steel tube. Thanks to careful engineering, this frame delivers excellent rigidity and gives a confidence-inspiring ride and an excellent level of active safety.
With 32 mm stanchions and a wheel travel of 85 mm, the hydraulic fork effectively smoothes out even the roughest road surfaces.
As with all scooters of the type, the engine-transmission assembly acts as swingarm and is damped by an adjustable shock absorber. A particularly generous wheel travel of 84 mm (one of the best for this category of scooter) achieves a smooth ride even on uneven and damaged road surfaces.
To keep the Sportcity One as compact as possible, 14 inch wheels have been combined with generous tubeless tyres (120/70 at the front and rear). Combined with the excellent frame, this suspension and wheel system gives the Sportcity One excellent stability and a truly intuitive ride that anybody can enjoy. A powerful 220 mm front disc with a two-piston floating caliper, plus a dependable 140 mm rear drum mean instant stopping.

Compact size, comfort and practicality have always been winning features of the Sportcity range. Now, on the Sportcity One, they are taken to the logical next step. Superbly agile, the Sportcity One is the perfect antidote to traffic despite its spaciousness and comfort. Its generous, anatomically shaped seat offers plenty of room for rider and passenger. Its flat platform also provides ample space for bulky objects.
