No, the transmission is CVT. Funny the first image I saw on their site is the Who logo in a Mod roundel. I dunno about that TBH. I might not be a Mod anymore but I couldn't see myslef doing that on a brand that hasn't become part of the culture.

I'm a bit confused. What is a Scomadi RC390? I am aware of the Scomadi scooters (including talk and prototypes of a Scomadi TL 400) and I am aware of the KTM RC390 motorcycle. What are we talking about here? And if Scomadi, why would you try to put a foot shift on a CVT scooter?

Only scooter I know of with a foot gear-change was the Rumi Formichino back in the 1950's. Might give you some ideas about how to fit one.

The Lambretta A (first type) had a pedal gearbox with a pointer gear indicator.
