Chicago, Illinois-based Genuine Scooter Company added to its Buddy lineup back in 2016 with the fuel-injected Buddy Kick. The Kick brings a definite Euro flavor to the table with a clean and efficient, fuel-injected powerplant that cranks out almost two-horsepower more than the existing Buddy 125 and all-around disc brakes for increased stop to match the enriched go. While many of Genuine’s imports come from Kanpur, India-based manufacturer LML, this ride is actually manufactured by PGO Scooters under the Motive Power Industry banner in Taiwan. PGO serves as an Italian connection of sorts due to its decade-long affiliation with Piaggio from ’72 to ’82, and this relationship shows in overall look of the Kick. Looks are important, but so is what’s under the hood so let’s get started.
