Help choosing a 50cc on a budget

Postby crookie » Sat May 18, 2013 11:02 pm

ok, so looking to pick up a 50cc scooter for a 30kms per day commute (round trip), i'm just under 6 foot and around 68 kgs, want something reliable, idally no more than 3 years old, good looking would be a bonus and ideally with larger wheels / tyres.

looking to spend around $1500, what would you buy?
like the look of these, any thoughts appreciated,
Adly silver fox?
keeway matrix?
keeway f-act?
Adly GTA-50?
arrow hustler?

My mates have a silver fox and I've ridden one and it's pretty solid. Can get up over 60 quite easily. Has pillion pegs for two. Had larger wheels and seems to absorb the bumps pretty well.

I have a yamaha jog and love it. Nippy little thing and I find more fun than the adly. I'm same height and weight as you too. I had a high speed pulley put in and is much faster - leaves other scooters at the lights and has top speed of around 65. Easily over 50 uphill too.

I don't think you would get an adly gta-50 for around 1500 but good luck if you do. They have better lighting, larger wheels and seem to be really good from people I've spoken to with them.

Hi cookeal,

If its any help, I paid £4995 for my 94 lotus bighorn with 65000 on the clock and thought it was a little overpriced then. 2 years ago.

But then, I WANTED
