Seth Hershey has worked at Metro Scooter since 2005. In 2018 David Rueve gave him the opportunity to take over ownership. He is an experienced rider; knowledgeable in the riding characteristics of every bike in the showroom, plus many others. Seth is always eager to share his enthusiasm and joy found in riding, whether leading group rides on day trips in the Cincinnati region or talking daily with visitors to the shop.
Seth is a dedicated technician; focused on every detail of the motorbikes he services. He is Factory Certified with Genuine Scooter, Vespa, Piaggio, and Bosch.
Seth has ridden across America with the Scooter Cannonball twice. In 2021, from Bar Harbor, ME to Eureka, CA. In 2023, from San Clemente, CA to Hilton Head Island, SC.
Seth has ridden with the local riding group, Circus Bear Racing Leage since it's inception. He holds that this might be the best training any rider can pursue to improve observation, control, and thereby safety. Ask him about attending an event.
The original Metro Scooter showroom was created by carving out a corner in the AUTO4N Car Service garage. On a handshake deal with the owner of the Genuine Scooter Company, Metro was delivered six Stellas and opened for business.
In 2007 Metro Scooter moved next door to a newly renovated 2000 sq. ft. showroom and workshop. This was our home for a long time, but always with a number of compromises from a service standpoint.
After 20 years in Evanston, we moved into a 4500+ square foot showroom and workshop in the neighborhood of Northside. Metro stocks new and freshly serviced pre-owned used motorbikes from Vespa, Piaggio, Genuine Scooter, NIU, Royal Alloy, and KYMCO. Metro also carries riding apparel, accessories, parts and supplies.
We thank our friend and mentor David for the time and work that he put into starting Metro Scooter and encouraging Cincinnati to start enjoying the fun and excitement of riding a scooter.
