I have a motorcycle and can't think of a better place to post this question... I would like to get a 50cc scooter that will be used to commute around town on roads where the speed limit is 45 mph with people driving anywhere from 40 to 55 mph. The reason I don't want a higher displacement scooter is because I don't have to get a plate for a 50cc scooter here in VA and because I can park it at a bicycle rack at work. It's also nice to have as a backup for my motorcycle and for short rides running errands. I understand that technically the 50cc scooters must not go faster than 35 mph to be excluded from the plate/registration requirements, but that's not the point of this thread! I have been researching "fast" 50cc scooters and came up with Aprilia SR50 which seems to fit the bill. I really like the design and the reviews seem to be very positive with large aftermarket support, but it is not cheap at over 3K new. I would like to buy a used scooter and a used SR50 seems to be hard (impossible) to find in my area. I would like to see if there are any other scooters that I should be looking at with a similar performance as the SR50. I don't mind having to modify a couple of things to make it faster, but I do not want to spend a lot of money on aftermarket parts. Best case scenario would be something where I can do modifications in my garage with a few reasonably priced parts if necessary. I am sure you guys have some suggestions?
