2004 Gilera Runner SP 50 from United Kingdom


The best 50cc moped


A head light bulb blew at around 5000km, and the seat pin came loose round about 8000km.

General Comments:

If you're 16 and thinking of getting a moped, then get a Runner.

The fastest 50cc moped around.

Huge 12 litre fuel tank for those unplanned road trips.

Very powerful front and back disk brakes.

Extremely reliable.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes

I've owned a Runner for 1 year now, and 1 thing went wrong; the coil pack for some unknown reasons. It's powerful for a 50cc Scooter. Water cooled, which gives a flat running temperature of 85c. Uses no fuel whatsoever.

Mine is totally de-restricted so I'm getting 55-60 flat out, but I only ride a 45MPH to put less strain on the engine. Have to make her last as long as possible. Can anyone tell me how many miles will the engine do before it dies completely? I do keep the engine up and running, and use the most expensive 2 stroke oil there is. 1L £34.99 not cheap!!!
