2001 KYMCO ZX 50
Milage: 0 - 1000 Miles
Likes: Zippy
Dislikes: Slow, and awkward wrist position

Review: Fun scooter which I need to sell because of arthritis in my wrist. It’s hard to hold the handlebar all the way forward, so top speed is reached as the hand is forced to bend all the way upward and significant force is needed to hold the handlebar up.

Fun scooter to putter around in and everybody is envious. I have an extra storage holder on it. Press button start or kick start. People think it can go faster due it looking like a motorcycle, so they get frustrated with me for not going faster than 38 which is its top speed (unless easily modified to go 43 or up to 48 mph).”

Review: Good bike. I can’t believe it still runs good at 30k!!!”

2005 KYMCO ZX 50
Milage: 5000 - 10,000 Miles
Likes: Peppy, Good looks, MPG, reliability
Dislikes: None after 7 years of owning it

Review: I have owned this machine for 7 years and it has NEVER failed me. Other than routine maintenance my ZX50 has never even burned out a lightbulb. Rock solid performance. Even hauling around a 260 lb guy this machine consistently got 75 - 80 mpg. Had the variator restrictor removed when I purchased it, but have not modify otherwise. Got a pretty consistent 38 mph. I would buy another Kymco in a heartbeat if I was in the market for another machine, however this one is working GREAT so why get rid of a good thing.”

Milage: 0 - 1000 Miles
Likes: Good bike for big people with tall legs. comfortable seat and overall a somewhat smooth ride.
Dislikes: Fuel

Review: I bought this scooter from a guy for 1500kr (about 140 dollars) and it does what I payed for. It is good, and haven´t disappointed me yet, even though I have just ridden a few miles on it.

But there is one thing I do not like with this bike, the fuel usage... it drinks fuel like a mushroom and if you want to use this bike as a mean of long distance bike, then I would NOT, I repeat, not recommend buying it. But if you just want a bike that can take you from point A to B and don´t tend to use it everyday. Then buy it, especially if you are a tall guy or girl since this is not a dwarf bike like most others. The seat is higher than normal bikes of this type and fits my legs perfectly, I am (202cm).”
