I'll vouch for the Aprilia. I have the 125 but otherwise the same scoot. With its light weight and big wheels, the handling is exceptional.

So the heaviest bike outran the others. Gotta love 2T.

Not sure my carb looks anything like the one in the vid (being a 2001), but I'll take the win regardless. 🏆

How is he running the euro headlight with a 50cc engine though? Thought the stator wasn't pokey enough to power a 55w bulb. Hmm…

That was quite informative. I didn't know about the dual channel carburettor.

Nice to know that the clock battery change we all curse about is beyond his skills. Or does nobody care what time it is up in Canada?

Great video, thank you. Now I have questions.

I've never considered a modern two stroke, but I'm intrigued. A clean 2T 50cc that goes 70?

Is this really true?

Please everyone on the forum dump as much info in this thread as possible. I need more data.

Thanks in advance.

Yes but.
That's kilometres per hour.

Yeah saw this yesterday and as always quality work by Ryan. I'm not a huge fan of really small displacement bikes but I much prefer them over the electric scooters all over Toronto. The e-bikes must be taking a huge chunk out of the smaller scoots. No need for a licence and you can use the bicycle lanes which I think is dangerous.

Ok, well, yeah. That makes more sense. My Aprilia does that.

Being in America, we still measure things in Freedoms / Cheeseburger. It's easy to forget that the majority of the world doesn't.

Fun to watch but I will stick with my bigger scooters and my validation on my driver's license. Cuz I am an old, grumpy, spoiled female.

Been a long time since anyone saw a new 2T Vespa 50 around here. Now a 2T Buddy 50 is another story.

I bought a two stroke Like 50 with a burned piston, No oil. Fixed, sold it and a year later the new owner burned out the piston (and barrel). No Oil.

Two strokes, besides being gas guzzlers and polluters, are too labor intensive for American car drivers. After all. Checking the remote oil tank is way too much trouble.
