Summary:

Good value

Faults:

Speedo cable broke.

Had to change the battery.

General Comments:

I think this is a great little bike. Bought it for £65.00 out of a front garden in 2011. Had to have the CDI unit I think it's called changed and get a new MOT. Since then all I have had is the metal stand broke, but got a pal to weld it.

The speedo cable packed up; got one off eBay for 11.00. And had to change the battery as the electric start was slow. But totally reliable, and I think it's a quick little bike for a 50cc. It has passed the last 4 MOTs without any advisories.

Well pleased with this bike, and if I was to replace it, I would have no doubt in getting another one.

Great for small roads, beginners and doing local errands. The front brake is almost too good for beginners. The gas mileage is well over 100 MPG!

Summary:

Smart choice

Faults:

When scooter is driven for about 20 minutes, the engine is cutting off and unable to start again for 5 - 10 minutes. This was because a vacuum 'T' shaped tube was loosing rigidity due to engine warming. Replaced under warranty.

Exhaust is rusting very quickly, but only because I drove it on a road where anti-ice salt was poured.

Carburettor jets clogged very often and needs cleaning (low quality petrol). Removing and cleaning the carb is simple and easy, but I'm thinking of installing a second fuel filter.

General Comments:

This scooter ideal for city commuting, but not for trips more than 10 km long.

Driving position OK, but gives me lower-back pain after 30 minutes.

Seat material is average, and sliding body forward when braking.

Steering handle positioned low, and sometimes I press the horn button with my left knee.

Awkward ignition key position. I'm afraid I might break it with my right knee.

Useful rear seat-backrest.

Underseat storage compartment enough for essential toolkit, XL-size jet helmet (or M-size full-face) and some other small things.

Very good build quality.

Central display gives you basic info: speedometer, kms traveled, fuel gauge, turn signal and high beam indicator.

Factory installed tyres are good for dry weather, but not for wet, where I found the scooter unstable, driving it across pedestrian crossings and other horizontal signalization.

Good and easy to use the central stand, but the side stand is going back to its original position, so it needs extra attention.

Average performance, but that's expected from 50cc GY6.

Driving uphill decreases speed significantly.

Top speed at flat road 55 km/h (c.v.t. smooth pulley joint and carb. jet (82 - orig. 80) replaced).

Could do more by de-restricting c.d.i.

Fuel consumption is 2.5 liters/100 km constantly.

Cheap and accessible maintenance parts, and simple to work on.

Good value for money paid, and it comes with 3 years unlimited kms warranty.

Cheap insurance and tax exempt (at least in Serbia).

I would recommend it as a basic, urban form of transportation with moderate performance.

Summary:

More of a comfort cruiser than a speedster

Faults:

Firstly, the acceleration is below average, and the engine is nowhere near powerful enough to take the Agility up an average hill at anything more than an embarrassing 20 mph at best.

Secondly, there is an annoying issue, where by when stopped at a red light, or even if I just idle for a few seconds, the engine cuts out and will take at least 30 seconds to get going again. But once it has warmed up, this becomes a rare occasion.

Finally, the scooter will breeze nicely to the 30 mph mark, where it decides to stay for the best part of 20 seconds, before unexpectedly accelerating to 40 mph and beyond, and this is especially annoying when slowing for speed cameras or red lights.

General Comments:

The folding seat at the back of the scooter doubles up as a very comfortable and convenient backrest, which can take a hell of a lot of weight against it, although I'm smaller build. It's also very simple to put up with the flick of a button-lock mechanism to keep it in its preferred position.

The brakes are very good on this scooter, considering it is now 3 years old and has been no doubt dropped many times by previous owners, as shown by the bent levers, which still work perfectly today.

The handling is superb for someone of my size (6 foot 1 and average build). The need to turn is so little on most occasions, as a gentle lean will often see you happily round most corners, and because of the backrest and general stability, taking your hands off for a few seconds need not be a worry, however dangerous it may be.

Finally, the bootspace is plentiful for such a small scooter, making storing your gear, including your jacket, nothing to worry about. Along with the hook, which can take up to 5kg of weight, the boot is sufficient for a shopping basket full of goods to fit in comfortably indeed.
