Aprilia Habana 50 Cc

Recommended Posts

Thinking of buying one this weekend, but need to start with 50 cc as I don't have CBT etc --plan to use the 50 cc to learn on and move up in due course to a higher spec.

Also how easy is it to check for HIre Purchase agreements still outstanding on a Scooter ?

Thanks ..for any insights / info.

Simple answer No.

When did you pass your test? You need a CBT even to drive a 50cc moped if you passed your test after 2001.

50cc bikes are legally limited to 30mph - although people modify them to go faster it is often cheaper to just but a higher spec one and it is illegal! Think about going down that A road and only being able to do 30mph - I did on my CBT test and it is dangerous and very underpowered.

Go for a 100cc or 125cc moped, eg piaggio zip or an older peugeot speedfight (which is what I've got) - top speed of about 55mph and very nippy. Costs a fiver to fill-up and £15 road tax. Only problem is having to do the CBT test but it was only about £70 and was actually quite useful for me as I had never driven a scoot before.

Also with regards to the finance it should come up on a HPI check.

You should be able to pick a decent 100/125cc scooter for about £500-750 - just go for an unmodified one that isn't owned by a teenager that has thrashed it to death.

I picked up my 100cc Speedfight with 2000km for £400 from ebay!

Go and buy a Kawasaki ER6n of ER6f restricted to 33bhp and do the direct access course.

Good bike. Easy to ride for a beginner. Will still pull 0-60mph in 3.8 seconds and tops out at 130mph. But more importantly an old codger like me with dodgy joints can ride one without fear.
