1982 | Love

Breezy moped-style scooter designed for women and younger riders


Entering the 1980s, the scooter market enjoyed a boom of massive popularity. The Love, which debuted after the classically styled Gemma, was designed to appeal specifically to women and a younger generation looking for a lighter, more casual model. The Love was designed primarily with usability in mind. For simple handling and rideability, it combines a lightweight body, a slim, fully faired styling, and an automatic 2-speed transmission. It also realizes excellent fuel economy and adopts the maintenance-free Pointless Electronic Ignition (PEI) system for practicality. The TV promotional campaign for the Love featured the first appearance of American superstar Michael Jackson in a Japanese commercial.
