I have the fastest 50cc scooter in Townsville

Maybe in the entire world. The other day I reached a record top speed of 75 kph. I reckon I could do 80 with a strong tail wind. Can anyone beat that? I didn't think so. (Photo for illustrative purposes only).

Just for the folks who are finding this post via google. I wasn't really serious about having the fastest scooter. It's an 2001 Eikon Beta 50 btw. At the time I was into my scooter but now I hate the darn thing. Long story short its water pump failed and the engine overheated and wrecked the piston and cylinder. I figured it would be worth it to get it back on the road so spent about 60% of the value of the scooter getting that fixed. And since then it's had so many other problems that my lousy mechanic can't seem to fix. Eikon no longer has an Aus importer so parts are scarce and expensive. I want to fix it and sell it but it's been sitting in my driveway for a while unstartable. But anyway now I ride this baby.

To reply to the question about a nice and fast looking 50cc to start with you can not get a 50cc moped or bike to do more than 55mph at the very most, so those people who reckon they can get theres to do 103 are twats and should fuck off, they dont even go fast when they race them! especially not the piaggios my brothers got one and its slow! so if you want a fast 50cc go for a moped because one there lighter, no gear box etc. and the gearing is better, a bikes gears can limit gears whereas a mopeds automatic system because it uses cones! and if you want a good looking one then thats your own personal choice but i personally like the peugeot trekker and the speedfight and mine will do over 50mph easily with the better petrol in it. Hope that helps but dont listen to the twats who reckon there 50cc bike can go faster than a 150cc, get a life!

This is a reply to excalibur275s comment written on spetember the 5th you are an idiot and before i start this im not somebody who thinks there the best or that my ped goes "103" it doesnt but you are completley wrong saying your crnt get a 50cc moped/bike to go over 55mph because you can, i accept you carnt get it over 75/80 mph but you can easily get it over 55mph and im not saying that 55mph isnt fast for a 50cc moped/bike because its very good but besides this you really can get it over 55 mph for example if you buy a 50 cc sports replica moped brand new if you run it in (500+ miles) and then get it de-restricted (washer taken out) or/and the exaust de-resticted then depending on the model it should easily hit 50/55 mph on a flat and maybe 60 on a hill. to add to this there is many other things to do for example you can get a bigger carb (10/15mm) note - the standard carb will be 4 ish mm this will increase your speed greatly, you can also fitt a racepipe/sports pipe this is mainly for accelration but may add 2/3 mph to your to speed, you can upgrade your rollers get heavy rollers this with the racepipe will help your top speed and acceleraiton, you can raplace the clucth arm springs with stiffer items This allows the engine RPM to lift higher before the transmission is engaged. you may also get uprated springs and also a jet or reed for it. so the conclusion is excalibur275 needs to do some homework. bye

i was riding this loaner bike from the shop and it was a 50cc and it went off the clock!!the speedo had 50mph and it went way past that and back to 10mph.so i think it was doing 90mph.im going to get this verifyed by video and by a motorcycle engineer.

mi aerox r has done 85 down a hill ive got the speedin ticket to prov it lol wasent a gd idea but yer its tuned with a stage 1 pipe and bor kit

Billy said...

just to add to this arguement about 50cc scooters. i had a 110cc monkey bike which hit 70mph (ive had this clocked) and i was overtaken by an aerox 50 on the dual carrigeway it wasnt just gradually either it did it with some speed i would say around80mph but i did get a glimpse of the engine it had a sports exhaust on which i could tell by the sound and it had a k&n filter with a red carbureta which was all i saw so i suspect this isnt standard but i can guarantee it was doing more than 70mph as i was flat out in top gear.

yeah i like the way that sounds....anyone have a link whereby I can learn how to mod a 50cc scooter for speed??

wow it is really amazing to know that you 50cc scooter
goes 70 kph cause normally 50cc scooters maximum speed is 50 kmh. I think you use some extra engine with it otherwise it's impossible.

c o k i said...

Your 50cc scoot is not the fastest one. There are so many faster 50cc scooter. Mine only can do 81kph on flat road, but still not the fastest one.

Lol you guys think 70 is fast for a scooter? Where I'm from in Bermuda if your 50cc doesn't go 70 it's considered slow. People have 70 kits all the way up to 115 kits just for 50cc's. Some 50's hit up to 130km because of all the engine and kit work it has.
