“one of the best 50's out there”

Written on: 23/04/2012

i bought my 03 gilera rcr 50 as spares or repair as it didnt run and had been sat up for 5 years. when i got my rcr home i personaly rebuilt the engine fully with all new bearings, seals, gaskets and piston and was very suprised at how cheap the parts were. also as i am only 16 i was suprised at how simple it was and would encurage other to save money and rebuild these them selves. after a succesful rebuild i put the engine back in, it preety much fired strieght up on about the 6th kick. and i… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/01/2011 by IR3L3NTL355 (1 review written)

brilliant bike incredibly fast and easy to ride only downsides are ducati electrics are pain in wet and starting from cold or being stuck in traffic because whilst in traffic decides it don't like it and stalls love the smoothness and comfort although had to change the handlebar grips for foam ones because on a run gets bit too viby and hands fall asleep but overall would recommend and a tip for people is Vaseline all connectors if you have ducati electrics and the bike will do 50mph up hill… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/05/2010

Had this bike 2 weeks, bought it second hand. Needed new bars, grips, throtal cable, air filter and a good cleaning. Apart from that, the engine runs sound and it is probably one of the best 50 cc's iv seen running, can easily get near to the 50 - 55 mark. No problems. Love this bike can be a b#tch to get going but once you have the bike running correctly, its a sound bike and worth the money! :)… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/12/2009

great bike, looks awsome, great off road, practically indestructable. I love this bike, ive never had a problem with it. i just got a de-ristriction. Its now quite quick. I fell off the other day, in a 55mph hi-side the bike flew sorta fliped and then slide and i just picked it up and rode on(the indicator broke and was dangling by the cable). Amazingly robust! Its great fun off road, i take it on mountain bike tracks and it handles anything with ease; drop offs get a bit exiting. Unfortunatly… Read Full Review

I would recommend this bike for any other learner, apart from the time it takes to warm in the mornings i think its the best value 50cc you can buy… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/03/2009

Owned a Gilera RCR 50 for three years, never had one single problem, used it for commuting day in-day out. Aswell as commuting I rode it for pure enjoyment in the evenings and weekends, thrashed it everywhere! Great learner bike, lots of fun, good size, good riding position. Not enough power when restricted, feels sluggish and struggles with hills… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/11/2008 by ansellman (1 review written)

I ' ve had the bike a year now and it has only broken a couple of times, nothing major only electrics, my bike has a lot of power, I have a Doppler exhaust and I have a race carb I am going to fit soon to improve power. This bike is definitely better than getting a moped, as all my friends have realised when riding behind me everywhere. The bike is very light and easy to throw around and pull wheelies, I can pull a power wheelie in any gear, it ' s an easy bike to learn gears on... I recommend… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/11/2008

By the sounds of things it has to much air going to the engine, theres a few things you could do. I would suggest taking the air filter off cleaning it and making sure it is all connected securely, or you could up jet it, but it takes a long time to do, if the bike has a sports air filter you would need to up-jet it, jets are only a few quid... but thats just my opinion, it could be something completly different, but that is all I could think of by the way you have described it... anyway, I hope it helps...let me know.

Written on: 03/11/2008

I have that moped and it doesnt have enough power, its too high, its too big and heavy for a moped. Im quite disappointed to it. I cant drive same ways to my friend because moped cant go same ways like Honda Monkey. I doesnt like this moped at all. Its too high and heavy for a moped. And like that wouldn't be enough, it has the worst power/weight ratio that I have seen… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/09/2008

I have a 2008 Gilera RCR 50. I have put a tecnigas e-nox performance exhaust on it, had a bigger carb on it, and had the front sprocket changed to 12 tooth. This means I have really amazing acceleration yet very high top speed and it sounds amazing. On flat, with no wind I can max out at 65, headwind, 60, tailwind, 70. It looks amazing and is possibly one of the quickest 50's you can buy Intense bike, recommend for anyone, even standard they are quicker than most other peds… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/03/2008 by Hicksy2k8 (1 review written)

All in all I would highly recommend this to any 16 year old who wants to start off on a motorbike. I recommend that you buy a performance exhaust system this makes hell of a difference to the performance of the bike and de-restricts it so you can get about 60-65 out of it. I have up-jeted mine and fitted a boost chamber this makes mine max out at 70mph and down hill with the wind behind my back it'll do 75mph which is fast for a 50cc bike… Read Full Review

Well where to start. 1st problem I got with I started on the first day carboration was wrong. Next problem working on it, kick stand fell off but seeing as its a Spanish bike they didn't seem to think this will be ridden by first time riders so lets use step through bolts just to make it little bit more complicated and then the kick stand started to bend which made me realise that they didn't seem to use metal on this bike more like putty. The chain is like and elastic band. The exhaust is put… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/01/2007 by rcrjb (1 review written)

The Gilera RCR 50 is a great bike to start you off. The bike is very fast when you de-restrict it, and sounds amazing when you put a race pipe on it! Its best quality is taking it off road: its super! It isn't too bad in the wet either: you just have to be a good driver! The RCR is also very light, so you can throw it round corners! It's fantastic to ride!… Read Full Review
