So I may get blasted for writing this up, but I can’t help myself. Yes, it’s small, yes it’s only 50 cc’s, yes it can be registered as a scooter. But, I would be happy to have it in my garage and take it out to annoy my neighbors from time to time, playing Max Biaggi around a made up circuit in the neighborhood streets. Ladies and gentlemen, what I give you here is one killer, gas saving scooter, if you want to look at it that way. Undoubtedly the best looking scooter I’m aware of.
Another shot, cause it’s just so good looking-
Here’s what the seller has to say-
Derbi Gpr 50 R Malossi Race Replica
This is a 49cc, oil injected, two stroke, six speed. It is in excellent condition and is equipped with a Leo Vince expansion chamber. 65mph top speed. Never layed down or crashed. Runs, Drives and Looks great. New rear tire, new brakes and fork seals. This is the Ultimate Moped. Since it is titled as a moped your 14 year old is street legal.
So this is not the killer Yamaha YZR 500 replica posted by Ian last week. But it is a oil-injected (no need to mix) six speed two stroke that the seller claims will do 65 mph. It also looks to be very clean and well cared for with some good maintenance.
Again, many of you may not see this as something that deserves sportbike status. But I would’t be fooled by the small engine. There’s local track near my house that would be perfect for this bike. Not a big track, but big enough that you could spend the day with a grin on your face. And then you can always blow down to the old 7-eleven for a snack on it, and turn plenty of heads.
I dig this bike. Bash away if you must. But if you see what I see, start the bidding!
