Sydney’s Scooter Central Turns 10

In small business it’s a very special occasion when you turn 10 and Sydney’s Scooter Central has reached that milestone.

Scooter Central Turns 10

Turning 10 is a momentous occasion for any small business and Sydney scooter dealer, Scooter Central, is celebrating its 10th birthday this month. Bringing further celebration to the occasion is that I (Allen) actually had a large personal part to play in creating the business all those years ago.

After a few short years, it was now Murray and Susan Walters steering the ship and it's been onwards and upwards ever since. Not only has the shop enjoyed continual steady growth, new business ventures over the years have included accessory website and the acquisition of US brand Corazzo Design.

Scooter Central is located on Sydney’s Northern Beaches and carries all the top scooter brands including Vespa, Piaggio, Aprilia, SYM and Kymco - It’s been that way since the stores inception and to this day, Scooter Central remains one of largest and most successful scooter dealers in Sydney (Australia even).   

Scooter Central offers full service facilities and a full range of accessories including the Corazzo brand of jackets and gloves. Scooter Central also specialises in scooter rentals and corporate scooter displays and brand promotions.

Congratulations to the entire Scooter Central crew and Happy 10th Birthday.

To see more, take a read through the full press release below or head on down to Scooter Central to join in the 10th birthday celebrations.

Press Release : Scooter Central Turns 10

Have you wondered why you see more and more scooters around Sydney’s Northern Beaches?

In the last 10 years, Scooter Central has changed Sydney’s Northern landscape by delivering a commuting alternative. Europeans have been riding scooters for over 60 years and in many parts of Asia the humble scooter is the equivalent of the family 4-door sedan. It’s unusual for a product to tick so many boxes - scooters are fun, easy to operate, inexpensive, environmentally friendly, trendy, reliable and offer free and plentiful parking. Sydneysiders love them.  

Scooter Central was the brainchild of motorcycle industry players Allen Drysdale and Tony James. Starting off in 2004 and selling the business two years later to the Walters. With a background in owning and running service stations, Murray and Susan Walters made the transition to dealer principals. It was ironic that after 20 years of selling petrol, the Walters were now in the business of helping customers save on their petrol.

Scooter Central has continued to deliver well-priced, quality products with customer service and product knowledge second to none. We’re experienced and knowledgeable with a great team of people. Scooter Central has an onsite workshop and we back the quality of the products we sell. Scooters range in price from under $3000 Ride Away to the top of the range Vespa for just under 10 grand. Maxi’s, commuters, budget or premium, we have them all. And if you just need a little taste, hire scooters are available for the tourist or the rider who is still trying to decide whether to make a purchase.

So where do we go from here? 

Watch this space as Motorcycle Underground has just been added to the Brookvale location. The home of Scooter Central is making space to increase the product range to include CFMoto and Kymco motorcycles. The staff members at Scooter Central are passionate riders of anything and everything and Murray has been looking to add motorcycles for some time.  The learner motorcycle market is one of the fastest growing in the industry and it’s time to offer customers an alternative option.

The Northern Beaches of Sydney has continued to roll out the red carpet for two wheeled riders with the red transit lane extending from the Harbour Bridge all the way to Mona Vale.  Commuting on two wheels has never been easier and Scooter Central along with Motorcycle Underground will continue to grow and service Sydney’s riding community into the second decade.  

Many Anniversary specials are happening in store now.  We are so lucky to live in a beautiful location perfect for enjoying the outdoors, so come in for a coffee, check out all of the 2-wheeled options available and enjoy the ride.
