Genuine Scooters Launches First Motorcycle, The G400C

• The Genuine G400C offers distinctive classic looks with numerous accessorization options;
• Perfect sizing to appeal to large demographic of two-wheel enthusiasts, including first time motorcycle buyers;
• Industry leading warranty.

CHICAGO, November 14, 2018 – Genuine Scooters today announced their entrance into the motorcycle arena in grand style with the release of their G400C motorcycle.

“Genuine Scooters has built its reputation selling high quality scooters that are both affordable and fun to ride,” said Dorothy Hanley, President of Genuine Scooters. “We’re hoping to achieve that same reputation as we enter a new two-wheeled segment with the launch of the Genuine G400C motorcycle. With an MSRP of $4,599, it is a competitively priced motorcycle that has classic appeal to a broad base of consumers.”

The Genuine G400C features a 397cc fuel injected engine and 5-speed transmission on a classically retro designed body. Weighing in at 353 pounds, it boasts 26 horse power to reach a top speed of 80 mph and fuel efficiency of 70 mpg, giving you approximately 240 miles of cruising range thanks to its 3.4 gallon capacity. The 19” front and 18” rear wheels, and a 31” seat height, makes the G400C perfect for the first time motorcycle buyer.

Available in black, green or red, the Genuine G400C also offers numerous accessorization options and comes with an industry leading 2-year/24,000 mile Genuine Confidence Warranty and Roadside Assistance Program, supported by a network of 240 Genuine Authorized Dealers across the country.

Clap Clap Clap
Three years in coming, I’m ‘excited’ to see one in person and ride it.

Many of us however had given up on it.

So, does the G400c get its own Forum on MB - or is it too different from the scooters?

One thing I really like about this new bike; It has a MOTORCYCLE seat! Not a bicycle seat. It won't have to be replaced for rides over 30 minutes. My only peave about modern motorcycles is the thin little triangular bicycles seats they come with now. The idea is to remove all thigh support so shorter riders can flat foot. I get it but why not just lower the seat? With all your body weight on your tailbone the first thing you do is turn around, go back home & start pricing aftermarket seats online. As I did with my current motorcycle. Companies know their seats will pass a 10 minute test ride & that riders over 5'3" will be paying to replace them. I go to an annual motorcycle show & sit on dozens of new bikes & ALL of them have useless seats except big touring bikes or cruisers. Anyway, had to vent about that & applaud Genuine for bucking the trend away from comfort. Include the cost of a new seat for anything else in its class.

I've been looking at pics of this bike for 3 years & hope to see one in my local showroom soon. This is what most motorcycles looked like in the 60s & 70s when I grew up & first caught the urge to ride. Skinny 18/19" wheels, not chunky 17". Straight line from the rear fender to the forks. No plastic panels hanging down at weird angles like melted wax. No plastic elephant ears/fake air scoops on the gas tank. No 3 foot long plastic tail for the license plate. The front end doesn't look like the face of a science fiction creature. A REAL seat, not a slanted downward Tour de France bicycle seat with the pillion sticking up in the air like the stinger of a mashed hornet. This bike is tempting. After 12 years I'm still happy with my motorcycle but 490 pounds is getting harder to fight at my age. In & out of the garage & around the cars. That's why my scoots get more miles lately.

There is one in our local Tucson showroom, but I don't know that they've sold one yet.

Hi Folks,

I joined up here to learn more about the G400C. My first motorcycle was a Honda SL70, so in my mind, the Genuine bike is what a motorcycle is supposed to look like. Same for my husband Doug, who rode an XL350 everywhere back in the day. Anybody actually sat on one of these or had a test ride yet??

None of the dealer websites show one in stock anywhere near here. I tried a Cycle Trader search and can't find one within 200 miles. Howard, have you had a chance to take a good look yet?

Looks like they've added a feature to the dealer locator on the Genuine site, there's a checkbox now that shows g400 locations exclusively. Looks like they are spreading out fast!
