“Good first bike”

Written on: 30/04/2017 by JosephineReece (1 review written)

My first bike great bike to start with. Its a great starter even on frosty mornings always shows its always willing to work very economical if looking for a cheap run around this is the bike to have. I bought mine having it done just over 2000 miles its now up to 6000 and is still running great, with a nice smooth 4 stroke engine. Things i didn't like is when you clean it you have to be very careful where the water goes else the electrics pack up and i had to leave them for over a day to dry… Read Full Review

I have owned a lexmoto scout for the last three and half years and I can honestly say that I partially agree with most of these reviews as far as reliability is concerned but if you are lucky enough to drop on a good parts supplier you really can't go wrong. Drive belts are an issue but that's true to say about all belt driven scooters due to the nature of the constantly variable gearing. The belt problem can be improved quite a bit by replacing it with a slightly more expensive aramid derived belt which is made from the same material as Kevlar type body armour and as such is a well known resilient hard wearing compound. All the other problems that I've had with the scout have been fairly minor ones like the side stand cut out switch failing which oddly gives some very weird symptoms including poor starting and minor to severe misfiring. The plastics are really well made so they don't suffer from panel cracking like the older sanben gladiator which I had and wished to God that I that I hadn't. Even though it is a very small scooter it feels much bigger and more comfortable than some of the larger 125's which believe it or not I had a problem with knocking my knees on the handlebars due to being a touch over 6 foot tall. Handling and power is very good considering the size of the engine and small wheel size which carries my ample body weight very safely. All in all if you regularly service it with good quality semi synthetic engine oil three times a year even if it only does low mileage and include valve clearance adjustment because then again they oddly get tighter as apposed to slacker like Japanese engines do. In my opinion if you take the time to look after these scooters they will look after you like any other.

“Unreliable”

Written on: 05/02/2017 by MarissaBallard303 (1 review written)

I bought my scout about a year and a half ago and it was about a year old when I bought it , it cost me £450 which was quite a good price. I had it sitting in my garage in for a month until I got my licence, the first week I started using it the tyre valves perished when I tried to pump the tyres up, that cost £10 to fix , another week later the piston cylinder broke due to there being no oil in the engine even though I topped it up the day before, That was another £80 then the fuel tank… Read Full Review

My philosophy is simple when it comes to buying any product, make sure it has been well cared for and that it can be proven. If not I buy new as was the case for my lexmoto scout 49 which has had a few things fail but nothing major and nothing that couldn't be bought for a few quid and put right by myself such as the side stand cut out switch or CDI unit. Buying my scooter from new just over three years ago was the best way forward because I could make sure that it got the care and attention they need especially when they come as cheap as these do. I can honestly say with hand on heart that I have no regrets about buying it and what's more I've really enjoyed owning it which will continue until it falls in half but that will be impossible on my watch to coin a cliché. In the case of these very popular and well proven little gems" you only get out what you put in".

“Unreliable expensive entry level moped. Lexmoto Scout 50cc”

Written on: 26/08/2016 by Paddlers (1 review written)

Bought one of these Lexmoto Scout 50cc for my lad as his first form of transport to get him to college. Broke down almost immediately. Back to dealers turns out to be a faulty spark plug cap. After that a succession of breakdowns. The clutch and or belt seem to be a favourite failure. The suppliers of parts are expensive and prone to sending out damaged/faulty parts. Currently in dispute over a drive belt that was issued with a fault. Same with the electrical system. The exhaust mounting simply… Read Full Review

“DO NOT GET THIS MOPED”

Written on: 16/06/2016 by Gonzalez345 (1 review written)

ive had this bike for just over a year now and everything is shutting down! It will now cost me £400 to repair and replace all of the faulty parts produced by lexmoto! The Chinese parts are far to easily worn as i only use this bike for my daily commute to and from work (approx 6 miles). It seems as if every part of the engine and electronics is shutting down or breaking! I do not want to sell this bike on as i think it may become a danger to the next owner? Should a motorcyclist really feel… Read Full Review

“No-Frills Motoring”

Written on: 12/08/2015 by Jaylene410 (1 review written)

So, to give a little bit of background, I have owned three of these over the past five years; a 56 plate Baotian one, and two Pulse badged 58 plate scooters, one of which I have now. Pulse Scouts, to clear any confusion, are the same as Baotian BT49QT-9 mopeds and badged as Pulse for the British market by Llexeter, the importers of Lexmoto and Pulse. The same moped has now become the Lexmoto Scout more recently with no apparent design changes. There’s a few recurring internet accusations… Read Full Review
