WELCOME TO OUR VESPA & SCOOTER WORLD!
When you think of SIP Scootershop, you probably associate mainly spare parts, tuning and accessories for Vespas, Lambrettas and other two-wheelers. This is of course correct, because our success is based on these products. They are the cornerstones of our range, they form the basis and the core business. However, a visit to our store in Landsberg am Lech provides an insight into a world that wants to be discovered beyond carburetors, exhaust systems and shock absorbers. Although the Vespa is the sun in our galaxy around which everything revolves, it also shines on other stars that reflect its light brightly. And in its glow shines the Flagship Store.
When we started planning the new SIP headquarters in 2014, we quickly realized that we needed a showroom for our products. A kind of "world of experience" where things can be taken in hand. Where the guest gets explanation and advice. A place that invites visitors to browse and linger. A meeting place for mechanics, recreational riders and interested people. The idea of the store was born. With direct connection to our offices, warehouse and workshops. The result of all these considerations is today's flagship store, which since 2016 has a large selection of items on its shelves and showcases on about 300 m².
COOL MOTORCYCLE CLOTHING
Quite deliberately, the technology area only takes up a small amount of show space. Some tuning parts are on display in showcases. Speedometers glow softly in their own light and shock absorbers and exhaust systems hang on one wall. On a Vespa GS on display, many accessories can be examined in action, while another is packed with bags as a touring scooter. Highlights, however, are the custom machines, which are known from many SIP videos and can be experienced here up close.
But most of the space is taken up by clothing, bags and helmets. Items that can be looked at online, but not touched. At first glance, the jackets made of fabric or leather from REVIT and TUCANO URBANO look like casual wear that has nothing to do with two-wheelers. Depending on the season, thicker or thinner jackets are available, but they all have something in common: Only a closer look reveals the cleverly hidden padding, wax-coated surfaces and waterproof zippers. If required, many jackets can be retrofitted with back protectors. Fashion meets safety, style combined with protection.
This is also true of REVIT shoes, which look like "normal" sneakers, but offer firm soles and reinforced leather at the ankle. Different sizes are always in stock and the shoes can of course be tried on with expert advice. You only buy a pig in a poke online.
Cleverly made are also the jeans pants from REVIT, which hardly differ from conventional legwear. The integrated protectors can only be felt, but can hardly be seen from the outside. We are constantly expanding our range of jeans and promise new cool models for the coming months. Of course, all parts can be tried on in a dressing room.
We are particularly proud of our large range of gloves for men and women. Here, too, it only becomes clear at second glance that the products from TUCANO URBANO, FUEL and REVIT not only look damn good and stylish, but also offer effective protection thanks to state-of-the-art materials: Hidden foam pads that harden on impact and absorb up to 40% of the energy.
The clothes from the Australian label DEUS EX MACHINA are also really cool: Caps, beanies, T-shirts, hoodies and sweaters with designs that seem to literally explode with creativity. Sydney, Los Angeles, Milan, Landsberg - DEUS infects the globe with its fashion.
Many garments come from Vespa itself and bear the iconic lettering. Just like our own creations from the SIP fashion line: T-shirts, caps, scarves and caps. Or, of course, our self-designed bags and suitcases, essential for every tour and trip.
We also take into account the emerging e-mobility at SIP-Scootershop. Many different e-scooter models from SEGWAY, IO HAWK, TRITTBRETT, EGRET and GO!MATE can be test driven. We have more than enough space outside on the company premises. Smart helmets from LIVALL are currently "cutting edge" and offer many clever functions.
The offer in the flagship store is rounded off by the large selection of helmets. High-end SHOEI full-face helmets are, so to speak, the Ferraris among headgear and worth every penny of their price. First-class materials combined with ergonomically mounted visors and a low weight make these helmets from Japan coveted objects.
A real eye-catcher are the helmets from Vespa, which are color-coordinated with their scooter paint schemes. So if you want to be tone-in-tone on the road, you can do so with a helmet from the cult manufacturer. Grab it quick, because the pieces are in hot demand and disappear from our shelves faster than we can refill. This also applies to the chic jet helmets from 70's, BANDIT and DMD. Not to mention the wide range of helmets for kids, available in cheerful paint schemes. Whether jacket, pants or helmet - everything is certified and meets the necessary ECE standard.
VESPA GIFT IDEAS & ACCESSORIES
And "last but not least" there are technical books, catalogs, magazines and model literature on a table. Reading material can be borrowed for a short time. Behind the sales counter are engine oil and other items that are otherwise often "forgotten" when shopping. In another section, there are gift articles and souvenirs such as key rings or bottle openers - of course, everything has a stylish look and is guaranteed to be of high quality. For kids, there are puzzles or even a mini scooter for their first driving experience. The shelves with the diverse accessories resemble a hidden object picture, where there are always funny, useful and rare gems to discover. As a final suggestion, we would like to mention our newly designed greeting cards, which are available for any occasion: Wedding, birthday or anniversary - a stylish motif around scooters always fits.
ADVICE, SERVICE & EVENTS
Nothing is more valuable than the conversation with our expert staff, with whom you can talk shop about restorations, tuning, repairs and all other aspects around our passion Vespa. Products can be unpacked and examined on site. Advice and tips are available free of charge, and consultations often lead to lively discussions in which other visitors participate. This is how strangers become acquaintances and customers become guests.
Of course, items can be ordered online and then picked up at the store. Behind the counters are also always tools ready that we lend you to perform a quick repair or assembly. You have a question about your scooter? Come by and we'll take a look at it and give you some useful tips. Even if you want to come with your whole club - no problem! Just register in advance and someone will have time for you. Generally we are open to every wish and idea. Just ask us, we will find a solution. Also a guided tour through the "holy halls" of the SIP Scootershop is possible, but we should talk about it in advance.
As a small thank you, we will also give you our SIP pass sticker to document your visit. Or you can ask for our guestbook, which you are welcome to write in and sign. We are happy about every entry. The Flagship Store should be a meeting point for all people who are interested in engines, scooters and racing or who want to discover this passion for themselves.
The "Open Day" at SIP Scootershop has become an institution and is known beyond the borders of this republic. Once a year, Vespa and two-wheeler enthusiasts meet on our premises and enjoy the exchange with the community. There is food and drink, music, children's entertainment, many exhibitors and our test stand is open to all. For one whole day, everything revolves around the most beautiful hobby in the world.
The test stand can also be visited once a month on the occasion of the "Vespa Aperitivo". So that you know exactly what your vehicle is capable of.
OPENING HOURS & WEBCAMS
The current opening hours, phone numbers, directions and live webcams around our SIP Flagship Store can be found on our contact page.
Attached to the store is the SIPERIA, an Italian café and restaurant that occasionally turns into a bar towards the evening. Pizza, pasta, sweet treats, ice cream, coffee, prosecco and other cold drinks invite you to linger. At lunchtime, employees from the surrounding companies meet scooter riders and SIP employees here. Mixed groups chat, laugh and enjoy the original Italian food.
At siesta time, it's easy to relax in a deck chair under large umbrellas in the shade. There is a lot to see: In front of the store there are actually always some two-wheelers parked to be admired. Scooter riders from near and far stop in, drink coffee or work on their Vespas and Lambrettas. If you want to get away from it all, close your eyes, listen to the murmur of the next table and enjoy the rattle of the two-strokes arriving and departing.
The SIPERIA is the ideal place to meet like-minded people. And with a bit of luck, the "Vespa Aperitivo" begins towards evening: a glass of wine can be enjoyed with small appetizers such as focaccia with zucchini, rice salad with fennel or grilled vegetables. As the sun sinks into the horizon and its last rays illuminate the large SIP logo, the day comes to an end. The SIPERIA is the perfect interface between work and pleasure.
Come by, we look forward to seeing you!
