REVOLUTION MOTO IS CLOSING ITS DOORS OCT. 31, 2023

Revolution Moto Scooters has faithfully served the North Bay scootering community since 2003. This Autumn marks a bittersweet end of an era as we PERMANENTLY close our doors after 20 years


That leaves SF with Scuderia in The City and Rockridge Two Wheels in the East Bay.

RevMoto was technically an hour away, but they did pickup and delivery in The City. The owner managed Vespa SF before it became Scuderia, so he had a lot of ties to The City.

And Scuderia bought Rockridge Two Wheels a while back. I hope RTW will still work on bikes older than ten years old. That's Scuderias work rules now, and shops are getting hard to find.

SFMoto only works on pre-HPE. They were the grey market service shop before Piaggio formally shipped to the US. As such, they had parts and expertise for older motos, but don't have enough newer volume to upgrade. They mostly do Japanese brands now.

Convenient for a tire change, but that's about all they'll do on a newer Vespa.

This news hit me hard. I bought my scooter here and loved visiting the shop (a 1/2 hour trip from Sonoma to Santa Rosa on beautiful HWY 12). I've owned many bikes over the years and you become used to dealing with the service manager who directs your scoot to the mechanic, whom you have no contact or relationship with, and finally you deal with the cashier in order to pick up the bike. At Revolution Moto Pete, the owner, was honest, supportive, and developed a solid relationship with each customer. On the service side you always had access to Trustin, the mechanic, who was quite capable and would test ride your scooter if needed to confirm your amateur diagnosis.

On the positive side the local PostMod Scooter Club, of which Pete is president, will continue into the future, and Trustin is looking for a space in order to continue providing service to the local scooter community. Best of luck to the crew at RevMoto!

If I still lived in San Francisco, I'd absolutely keep going to Trustin.
