something about scooters

Guys I was wondering about scooters...like the 50cc kind that looks tricked... I was thinking of getting one for fun but I dont even know what companies make these mini bikes let alone the best one...

this model seems cool, but never heard of the company before.http://motorcycle-usa.com/Article_Pa...450&Page=1

Aprillia makes some good ones I guess. They also make a RS50 street bike, my wife owned one, it was so fun to ride.
Heres some pics, we paid 2800 brand new. Got a arrow exhaust on it. Went 60-65 with my fat rear on it.

Yup its a 50cc. Alot skinnier, and weighs about 200 wet. Great times. To slow for most use, but fun to ride in the twisties back roads.

Same motor! In europe they are hugely popular. I am not sure where you are from but here in New England we have Seacoast Sport Cycle, they are the #1 dealer east of the rockies, they can get and know all about modding the hell out of anything aprilia.

I'm not to far from you...nyc, queens in da house yo!

Anyway, how fast are these scoots and can they be tweaked for more speed? Are these 2 stokes a bitch to take care of?

sry bout all the newbie question.

Those 2strokes are really easy to deal with. Dump some oil in the injector bottle occasionally and go. As far as top speed I have no clue. And the go fast parts I am pretty sure readily available. There was the 95cc kit available for the bike(same motor) so I am sure there are plenty available.
