ScooterNova is the scooter magazine for scooter enthusiasts.
Launched in 2017 following demand for a quality publication produced by fellow scooterists with both a knowledge and genuine passion for scooters. ScooterNova features mainly the classics like Lambrettas and Vespas. But we love all scooters, which is why you will find enlightening articles about the well-known marques but also information about the rarer machines from the likes of Ducati, Maico, Zundapp, IWL, Peugeot, Moto Rumi and more.
Our aim is to offer a high standard of magazine, from the superior paper it is printed on to the credible, in-depth features inside. The design and photography complementing each article allows readers to explore the stories thoroughly, each one with enough pages to appreciate it, together with appropriate advertising from relevant companies.
Produced in the UK, ScooterNova is a magazine we are proud to put our name to and readers are proud to keep on their coffee table.
If it’s scooters you like – the design, engineering, customisation, tuning, restoring, riding and touring –
then ScooterNova is for you.
ScooterNova was created in 2017 by Andy Gillard, a life-long scooterist who has been commuting and riding for pleasure since the age of 16. Andy previously worked at another national scooter magazine for 18 years, resigning his 13-year tenure as its longest-serving editor prior to setting up his new venture.
Ann Murphy is another life-long scooterist who has clocked up may thousands of miles throughout the UK and Europe since she bought her first scooter aged 17.
Working alongside is Stuart Lanning, owner of the Lambretta Museum and previous owner and publisher of three national scooter magazines from the 1980s until the early 2000s. Don’t tell him, but Andy often cites his original Scooter Scene magazine of the 1980s as offering the inspirational quality for ScooterNova today…
All share a life-long addiction to scooters that has taken them around the world in the pursuit of new adventures on small wheels.
Some of the regular names contributing to ScooterNova magazine include Scooter Lab UK (SLUK) co-founder ‘Iggy’ Grainger, Lambretta Spanners Manual author Sticky, Casa Lambretta supremo Vittorio Tessera, former Rimini Lambretta Centre owner Dean Orton and VVC editor Paul Hart. People who are not only fellow scooterists, but like our ‘street team’ who help promote and sell ScooterNova magazine at rallies, also our friends.
Between us, the scooters we regularly ride range from 1950s classics to tuned street-sleepers to engineered oddities and regular workhorses. Whether it be a daily commute, seaside rally or touring abroad, as long as we’re riding scooters then we’re happy.
