    ...or are willing to admit it. :o

    Seems like a fun, sexy, super cheap bike. It's only a 50cc bike though. :o

    Tell me this is a stupid idea.

    Nice track-ready bike, I wouldn't want to own one on the street thoght since it tops about to about 60mph.

    Do not get one if you are planning to go over 50mph. They are SEVERELY underpowered.

    Just an expensive moped.

    I'm probably getting a Piaggio BV200 pretty soon. I looked into 50cc scoots first, but they are just way too slow and underpowered. The BV200 is 200cc with 21 hp and a top speed of about 80 mph. Should be good for commuting.

    the rs50 isnt a scooter, well more like a 'mini' sport bike

    Ah, I see. How much does that weight? Seems like it's a little larger for such a small engine, but then again, I don't know what can be done to the engine or how much weight it's pushing around. Looks cool, though.

    i just read an article in a magazine (can't remember which one) about an aprilia that had a 750 swap...was pretty impressive at low speeds. I'll see if i can dig up the article. They do look fun to toss around though!
