Three Of The Best Scooter Commuting Clothing Offers!

I have a 125cc scooter and I use my bike for commuting every day, what gear should I get to be comfortable all year round?

Summer is (almost) finished, and we have the dark, cold, wet commutes of winter to look forward to. A scooter or smaller capacity bike is a cost effective, quick, easy and fun way to get to work but you will need to get proper gear in order to be comfortable on your bike, whatever distance you do. Here at Motorbike Planet will be able to advise you and help you get the perfect outfit, whatever your budget and your needs. Here are some examples of what we can do for you.

Budget Kit
You’ve just bought a new scooter to go to work every day, and you are not really keen on spending an awful lot of money on your gear. You want quality, style and good protection and we have the perfect kit in store for you! This kit is called the Spada Starter Kit. You get a jacket, a pair of gloves and helmet for only £139.99 in store at Honda Of Bournemouth or online on our website
Spada Starter Kit
The Spada jacket is a basic waterproof jacket. It is really comfortable to wear. It comes in two different models: a short one and a three quarters length one. You can find all the protection you need: CE approved elbow and shoulder protectors, foam padding back protector that you could remove if you want to and hi-visibility panels. You can upgrade the jacket with a CE back protector. You have a double zipper at the front, so that you can ride with your jacket open on really hot days for a maximum of ventilation!
The gloves are from the same brand. They are made of a mix of textile and leather. They are winter gloves, really thick, well insulated and waterproof. The palm is reinforced with the leather layer on both hands. The extra feature that might convince you about these gloves is the visor wipe on the left thumb! So useful!
In this deal you also get a Spada RP700 helmet. This is a good basic helmet that will do a great job of protecting your head. It has a pretty good ventilation system at the front (lower and upper ventilation) and fastens with a double D-ring.
The total bill for this complete outfit is only £139.99.
