I vote Hot for a brand new little run around it seems a nice price.
Do I need a CBT certificate, if I have an old driving licence?

Thanks
If you've had a full licence from before 2001 I think it is you can drive up to 50cc with CBT and no need for L plates.
Sorry should say without CBT and L plates.
Direct.Gov.UK

If you passed your car driving test on or after 1 February 2001, you must complete a CBT course to confirm your full moped rights.
If you passed your car driving test before 1 February 2001 you don't need to complete a CBT course to ride a moped. However, the Driving Standards Agency (DSA) recommends that you do.
If you want to ride a motorcycle you must apply for a provisional motorcycle licence and then complete a CBT course.

This is the first road legal VEHICLE I've ever seen on HUKD oO

Voted HOT

< I've always wanted to post that smiley, it looks weird oO
I've not voted either way, but I'd just say to be wary of cheap chinese scooters.
They are usually cheap for a reason and spares availability is far from certain.

Some are better than others, and I think Generic (they *really* didn't know what that meant) are in the better half, but be careful.
If you haven't passed a full motorcycle theory and practical test by the end of the two years, you must take another CBT course. This is so you can continue riding on the road as a learner.
Whats a rough estimate of insurance on one of these?
If you are going to buy a scooter buy a decent one not a Chinese one, the direct scooters were on rouge traders, the speedo is in kph, have to put most of it together yourself and it even had rice in the engine!
So as this is not a moped but a scooter - does that mean you still need to apply for a motorbike licence, a CBT and L plates to ride it if you passed your test before Feb 2001

I got 10 year old 125 scooter
19 male 1 years ncb
£100 fully comp
Anyone know what the road tax costs are? Could be a cheap way to get to work if its ok. I guess they do a zillion miles to the gallon too?

£684 is for one at scooter.co.uk. The Tesco ones looks nicer tho !

Tax is possibly £16 or less
How the 19 yr old got fully comp for £100 I do not know. Maybe is a scooter thing. But on a 125 motorbike 1yr NCB 3rd party only is £88 fully comp was £300 odd. 28yr old male

Thanks so about £100 for tax and insurance. Anyone know what kind of fuel consumption you get?

Nothing stunning - probably about 75mpg.
There's very little difference in consumption between an auto 50 and 125 - although it's a smaller engine you ride everywhere with the throttle wide open.

To get what I'd consider to be impressive economy you need to go for a geared 4-stroke 125. A used Honda CG125 will do over 100mpg

I wouldnt get a 50 as they just keep up on most roads,an auto 125 can do 100 mpg easy,you just have to pick the right one like honda dylan
People on these make great target practice for my drum barreled ak 47.
There is this place near me that churns out generic 50cc mopeds new for £600
i wouldnt buy any chinese ones though as they usaully start breaking after after a few weeks of heavy commuting
you can get a decent ish 2nd hand bike for this money though that will last alot longer

LOL squat the wasps !!
Insurance wise Last year (aged 17) my insurance on a Honda CBF 125cc was about £400. This year it was about £370 after some searching. My previous insurer tried to put the price up to almost £800.
Still only on a CBT with L plates.
I can see why this is in the "sumer maddness" section of their website
unusual that it is a two-stoke.
should be a bit nippier and more fun than the normal four stroke.
although a bit less MPG's and the cost of oil , but will surely have more go about it.
Can these go over 30mph? (_;)

Thanks

Can believe it.........when mine came it had chop sticks for handle bars & it run on a 50/50 mix of curry sauce & won ton soup

Top speed will be around 40 - 45mph, depends if exhaust or variator are restricted in any way. Got rid of my 50cc a few months ago, great and so cheap to run when no problems but unfortunately I had no end of trouble with it and it ended up costing a fortune. I'd stay away from a 50cc, its too much strain on such a small engine. Get a 125cc instead. That is the max you can ride with just a cbt.
The question is...do you really want to risk it on one of these when for half the price you could buy a proper motorbike or even a better scooter
Can this be modified to run on vegetable oil?
