Good acceleration to 30mph takes a bit to get to 50, i've had 51 out of it but the next day my speedo cable snapped, too much pressure I think.
Out accelerates a Aprilia sr50 racing replica thats fully derestricted and silencer too!
Takes time to warm up, when bike is worn in.
I bought my Piaggio Typhoon 50cc Scooter in october 2003 and couldn't wait because it was my 16th birthday, it was really ok when I first got it, but it was only doing 22mph at the max on flat ground, but my speedo was sayin 27mph. Ah well, now its great, as I can burnoff loads of cars at the traffic lights, I took it too a large hill in wales the other day called llangollen where I went full pelt downhill, and got about 65mph out of it, it was really good clean fun.
