I'm not 100% sure, but I think this new model 50cc is the first 4-stroke.
So, there isn't going to be a ton of people riding them yet.
Plus, a lot of people aren't going to buy a 2012, if they can find a left-over or used 2-sroke.
They think a 4-stroke can't be hacked to get a lot of extra speed.
Whereas I am interested in being able to climb hills, and MPG of course.

Kinda funny, but I got interested in 50cc mopeds about 50 years ago.
Got my own in 1963. At the time, I would have loved a 250cc (like my brother had),
but in Bermuda, you had to be 21 for anything larger than 50cc.

Those black USN socks and while sneakers were cool back then..
