Scottoiler Price Increase 2015
Glasgow, Scotland –15th of December 2014
 
Dear Scottoiler customers and fans,
 
With the motorcycle market showing signs of recovery after the last few years of economic recession Scottoiler is looking forward to 2015 with renewed optimism. The recession has been very difficult for everyone, but we avoided raising our prices and made as many offers as we could to keep our products affordable to you, and to sustain a profit for the company, allowing us to retain all our staff and continue to research and develop new products to benefit our customers. In fact, our kit prices today are the same as they were in 2010.
 
However, since that last increase in 2010 our costs have risen considerably, especially raw materials and transport costs, which seem to rise on a yearly basis. Therefore in order to maintain a sustainable business, continue to bring quality products to market, and provide our customary high levels of customer support we  have taken the difficult decision to raise our prices in 2015.  
 
The price increase will take effect from 5th January and you can access the new price list here.
 
We did not take this decision lightly and hope you can understand and accept the reasons for the increase. We thank you for supporting Scottoiler, a Scottish manufacturing company, and all our suppliers in the UK, and we hope that your support continues in the years to come.  
 
Any orders placed between now and the 5th of January 2015 will be honoured at the current prices.
 
Thank you,
Your Scottoiler Team

GlobeBusters reach Beijing

August 2013 - Press release from Scottoiler partner GlobeBusters

Eleven weeks after departing from London's Ace Cafe, the largest ever group of motorcyclists to attempt an overland expedition to Beijing arrived in the Chinese capital, having battled their way through some of the worst floods that the country has experienced in 50 years.

Expedition leader Kevin Sanders stayed in the saddle until they reached their destination at BMW Beijing, in spite of sustaining a broken ankle when his front tyre was punctured on a level crossing.

“This is the third time I've ridden the Silk Road and it rates as the toughest trip yet” comments Kevin,  who holds the Guinness World Record for riding around the globe by motorcycle in just 19½ days. “Not only were we hauling bikes out of swollen rivers, we also experienced altitude sickness in the Himalayas and one of our group had a close encounter with a truck that left him temporarily on crutches. But the guys all pulled together and I'm so proud of them all completing the 13000 mile journey on two wheels.”

The epic journey for 13 riders and two pillion passengers was organised by GlobeBusters, the Cambridge-based overland travel experts. There's no rest for Kevin, who leaves to UK at the end of July to lead a group of riders along the original Trans Americas route, a 24,000 mile trip lasting 20 weeks, running from Alaska to Patagonia.

Scottoiler release limited edition system

June 2013
Automatic chain oiler manufacturer Scottoiler releases limited edition system

Automatic chain oiler manufacturer Scottoiler has announced that it will launch a limited edition version of its popular vSystem chain oiler for the summer months.

The "mini vSystem" is based on Scottoiler's top selling vacuum operated automatic chain oiler. The new system features a compact oil reservoir giving up to 500 miles range between fill ups. This smaller size is perfect for fitting to models such as sports bikes with limited available space, or for those who want a more discreet installation. This shorter range system will appeal to riders covering moderate mileage each year keeping the chain perfectly lubricated whenever they have the chance to ride.

Marketing manager Matt Ennen said: "With the mini vSystem we have responded to current customer feedback and also to the changes we have observed in the motorcycle market. The average mileage of a motorcyclist has dropped significantly and a big trip to the continent might not be possible due to the current economic uncertainty, but a quick blast on the weekend is something we still live for. With a battery optimiser keeping the battery charged and ready to go, adding a Scottoiler chain oiler means you can jump on your bike with the peace of mind that your chain is also well looked after."

The mini vSystem will be available online and from retailers from the 1st of July for a limited time for only £74.95.
