How fast can a Buddy 50cc go up to?

by Anonymous

I am interested in the Buddy 50cc scooter, but I am not sure if it will be able to go fast enough to actually use around town. Thanks!

I'd Go With the 125cc Too
by: Kathi

I'd also recommend the larger Buddy. The difference in price isn't that great, nor is the actual size of the scooter. And the 125/150 gives you so much more flexibility. I've gone as fast at 55MPH in it and can hold my own on highways (not interstates).

Get more horsepower

My recommendation is to get a 125/150. You will quickly outgrow the 50 cc and feel eager to sell it/replace it. Though I know it is a personal decision, I also find myself wanting with the 125 cc because it has not broken in. They tell me it will change with time as the initial brake in period passes. I see myself passed by by more powerful scooters and I wish I had bought the CC/s That's in town, where most of the streets have a 45 mph limit.

Buddy 50cc

Most 50cc scooters will travel around 35 to 45 MPH depending on rider weight. If that is not fast enough, there are upgrade kits to improve your topend speed. I hope this is helpful for you.

Battery Tender Junior in package

A battery tender like the Battery Tender Jr. can make all the difference in whether your scooter will start right up each spring, after being stored for months.

Just about every scooter owner needs to have a battery tender, sometimes called a trickle charger. Unless you are lucky enough to live in a climate where you can ride all year long, chances are your scooter will be put on ice, figuratively-speaking, for at least a couple months every winter.

One of the key steps in winterizing a scooter is to protect your battery from draining during its "rest" period. This can – and will – happen if you leave your battery sitting untended in your cold scooter over the winter, even if it's in a garage or shed.
