What is the best 50cc scooter?

by Anonymous

I'm interested in buying a 50cc scooter. Any horsepower above 50cc will require a special license. Do you have any thoughts on the best all around 50cc scooter? And/or the best 50cc scooter for the dollar? Thanks

I've a Yamaha BWS for 8 years. Bought 2nd hand. Amazing reliable machine. Most work you can do yourself and it is awesome to ride.

by: Walt (BC)

The 2012 is now a 4 cycle 3 valve engine, better fuel mileage, lower noise levels, closed/grooved belt drive, loads of storage, beefy tires and looks, beautiful color schemes and excellent reviews with proven Yamaha performance. Currently just over 3K in Canada.

Its a 2-stroke gives more power than a 4-stroke and reaches 75km/hr on flat. Ideal for bigger riders as well Very reliable, starts all the time.

RE: Best 50cc Scooter

The best all around scooter is the Honda Ruckus. It's a 4-stroke, has lots of aftermarket add-ons, and it's a Honda built. It'll last for years if maintained properly. Seriously, for the money, you can't get much better than the Ruckus 50cc.

I will have to agree on the Kymco 50 people scooter as being the best buy.

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.

Read our review or go right to Amazon.com to buy this highly recommended Battery Tender Jr NOW...

Even though most of their posts did not go public, they still cluttered up my website host's server space, jeopardizing my account. I appreciate everyone's contributions over the past few years and I apologize for having to do this.

Wondering why your scooter question never got posted?

Chances are, there is a good reason. Did you...
