owned my ts for a good 6 months now. After getting up to a good standard as it was used and not really looked after from the old owner! This bike is brilliant, all the 50s ive rode the ts is certainly the best. its really smooth, fun to ride, is pretty fast for a 50, oil seems to last years! :P Also the parts are scarily cheap for it, and the insurance is very cheap! These things last forever and are a good head turner as you will not see many of these on the rode! would seriously recomend... (read more)

i owned a ts50x with in a week of owning it i was a bit sick of only doing 30 up hills so i bought a 70cc big bore kit fitted that along with a new jets and modified the reed valves. All in all the bike would happily hit 45 in a matter of seconds from a standing start that was with original sprockets reckon with a big bore kit you can go down about 2 teeth on the rear sprocket to get some serious top end speed but acceleration will be hampered. picked mine up for £210 and sold it for £400...

In the whole 2 years i've owned this bike, it's never let me down.
The oil in it lasts forever and a tank of petrol will go for over 150 miles.
Mechanically, it is sound, and vertually indestructable.
Highly recomended as a first bike and is very fun to use. :)
Also is great for filtering and comuting,and is big enough for the taller and larger riders to use:) (read more)

The Suzuki TS50 is an amazing first bike.
All my friends were getting scooters, but they will be in for a shock when they move onto bigger, geared bikes.
This bike is excellent for learning how to do gears on.
It has a decent top speed - restricted it does 36.
The brakes are smooth and make no noise at all.
For a 2 stroke it sounds alright and smokes very little.
Great bike and great fun to ride.

The Suzuki Ts50 is an amazing bike. It has plenty of power as long as you play with it. mine has a 70cc bore kit and I have changed the gearing. On a flat I average around 50 mph.

Overall the Suzuki TS50 X 50cc was a nice bike, but I would not get another one because I do not ride it on the road, and I think that is it's general purpose because if you are offroad on it, it does not do the job 100%, and if it was ever taken to a real motorcross course it would not stand a chance because of lack of power and other qualities. however I think this bike is still good and would be suitable for the road but not 100% reliable.

I've had my bike for about a year and passed my test a while ago and the bike has been brilliant! It's definitely the bike to have if living in low speed roads. I have now decided that I would love to bore it out and get it up to higher speeds especially up hills! It seems that 20mph is all it wants to do! lol.
Overall it's a very, very good bike - I also only paid £150 for it - bargain! Looks stunning and is definitely the bike to get! (read more)

Over the time I have had this Suzuki TS50 X 50cc bike I have loved it. When I first got it, it did 35mph struggling, the restrictors are as follow: plastic spacer between carb and barrel, mould in barrel, exhaust system, and gearing.
I tackled these and created my bike to now go at amazing speeds, the most that I have had so far is 85 to 90 mph at only 7000 rpm. The below info will help you to make a speed demon of your bike yet:

This Suzuki TS50 X 50cc bike is made to be ragged by anyone and everyone, it looks the part, as well as sounds the part. It is a great running bike! However, with my TS, the only down side is that I have to pre-mix the 2 stroke with the fuel because I have a 70 bore kit and the oil pump isn't powerful enough to get the right mixture.
I would recommend a TS to anyone, it's a great first bike to learn on. Better than a moped! (read more)

Having had 125's and a 250 on the fields before reaching 16 yrs old the Suzuki TS50 was a step down to being stuck at 33 / 35mph. However the bike never let me down and while I had it was a very nice bike to ride. In all honesty probably the nicest bike I have had to ride. All I wanted it for was as a commuter WITH GEARS (no rev n go rubbish) to get me about until my 17th birthday and it did the job fine!! Highly recommended (read more)
