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..

Current ride: 2014 RAV4 LE AWD (24 MPG)
