the aerox i payed £1800 for mine and got 3rd party insurance free that was ok. u get it u run it in and oh you can only do 35mph. so wat u do well go buy a racing can that cost atleast £120 no less or there crap. u then need to get new rollers init and they have to be channged or greesed up. the brakes will be fine for the speed depending on how you do the set up. you should get between 50 and 55mph out of it. the bike handles a treat no matter wat the conditions. the one thing that always go are the brake lights they start to fliker and then just need the swiches re-doing. another thing are the clips the clips are just crap and brake. with regards to fuel the way the filler cap is if your bike is out side the tank gets water init, and then you have to drain the carb. all in all thoe the bike is worth the money but if you do one thing it will always need something else doing after it.
this bike has never let me down the build quality is brilliant the speed is nothing to complain about my aerox is a virgin limited edition and looks excellent and rides well too hard to put in to words as long as you maintain the aerox it will be the greatest bike u have every had av a gilera runner but this is on a totaally different level it wiked and more my advise is if u see 1 get 1 cos it pays u back in comfort style and every thing about the bike it doze loads of miles on fuel i do 85 miles a week on it and a put £7 in a full tank and it doze it easy wiv enough to go out wiv mates as well the street credd on this bike is unbelieveable
Got it in March 2005 - done 6,000 miles in 6 months. Loved them all!
MCN etc say no middle range - then ride around it you suckers!!! They say it's not right for new bikers - then let them buy a tame Bandit 600 then and wait till they can handle this bike.
At £4699 OTR with great looks, and stonking performance (if you know how to find it AND USE IT!) then this bike must be one of the bargains of the year. I was hoping that they would follow suit with the FZ1 (1000cc) - looks like Yamaha have stuffed up again and made it too hi-tech and way too expensive at around £8000 - at that money I know what I will be buying next and it won't be an FZ1. Now where is the nearest Triumph dealer, aah there they are. "Ahem, can I have a Yellow Speed Triple please for £500 less than the Yam?" "Of course sir, there you are". Mmmm lovely.....

I recently bought a brand new Yamaha aerox 50. I payed £1600 on the road with free third party insurance, which i fort was a bargain!! It had £700 knocked off the price. I purchased it from George White motorcycles in swindon. The break are fantastic on it , and the bike is a dream to ride ! The engine is really sweet aswell !! The only fing is its derestricted so it doesnt go that fast because im running it in! its quite nippy ! Im thinkin about purchasing a exhaust for it, there is a gd website called predatormotorsport.co.uk which sells very cheap stainless steel exhaust systems !
I bought my yamaha aerox a few months ago it is now the 28 feb 2004 it is the black and silver virgin mobile race replca .i bought it second hand as it is so much cheaper a brand new one will cost up to £2200 but i bought mine second hand for £1100 so it is half the price .when i first had a go on it i couldnt belive how slow it was because my m8 had a pegout speedfight 2 was still quite good aceleration even thought his was resricted still.i took of the exhaust and at the end where it ataches to the engine there was a huge cone like restricter which was welded in luckly my dad had the tools to remove this cone .after i had the cone taken out i crimped the resonater pipe i then put the exhaust back on i started it up and it was a lot louder i took it up the road quickly and could not belive how good the accelration was i was very surprised the acceleration had at least trippled and so did the power .after doing that it will go about 45mph but if you take the washer out of the varible resister it willl do around 55mph which is plenty for a moped .i was going to buy a aprilia sr50 but my dad insisted that i got a japenese bike this was due to there great reliabilty and design.i have raced my m8 and he has got a pegout speedfight 2 and mine flys past his on top speeed and aceleration .i would relally recommend this bike to everbody
I bought a 2nd hand Aerox for 1000 euro and i must say it wasnt in the best of condition. The Headstock was all messed up but i got that fixed for 150 euro. Since then its been the best moped i could hope for. I got it derestricted and it was the fastest bike in my Area. Lovely smooth handling and very qwik breaks, the reaction time is as it should be, not even milliseconds. Its sleek look, and its style is very original. The lights though are poor at best, and the mirrors are quite small but with most bikes, dont trust your mirrors! The Aerox is a fantastic bike for a beginner, but when u hit something, man do you hit it. Yesterday *May 9th*, a car crossed my path in a traffic jam, with no indications or anything, and i could do nothing to stop from careering into the side of his front panel... My Aerox went straight up on its nose and slid for abt 2 feet, i flew and did a somersault and landed about 10 feet from where my bike was. I have a broken right toe but thats all, so i am lucky, even though its a 50cc, the gravel/tarmac is definitely not forgiving. Now my bike is a complete write off and i am praying that the Accident investigators here in Ireland will see that it was the drivers fault and not mine coz i only have third party. The Damage on the bike is the headset is scractched and cracked, the front panel is scratched from sliding, the mudguard disintegrated, the foot rest on the right side and the under panel cracked and broke, the tail light broke band the front side panelling that says AeroxR doesnt say AeroxR anymore...and finally, the damn headstock/forks are bent into a 45 degree angle. I obeyed the 2 second rule, and i wore a bike jacket and full face helmet, i was only doing 25mph MAX in the traffic and that is what can happen. I really miss my Aerox now, i loved every minute of riding it, and if my insurance doesnt hike up, i will get myself a new one. So all in all, its a great bike, too bad
about the fairings, they are all kinda interconnected...the right side breaks...well it happens to be connected to the left side too, so thats about 150euro for a new one :( Learners, enjoy the bike, keep it real, always concentrate and for god sake please wear all the protective gear, even if it is a moped, coz the chances of me surviving that accident without a PROPER helmet and jacket were slim to none...
I have had my Aerox for 2 months now and done 1800 miles. I have had it fully de-restricted and got new rollers in it to get better acceleration and i get 55mph. I am getting a " Kundo Rapid " racing exhaust in a few days time with will increase all round acceleration and on top end speed so i should get 60ish. I recommend this bike to anyone, because it has good look and a sporty look aswell. Its well built and has front and rear brambo disc brakes. If you get this bike then a highly recommend that you de-restrict it, and get a new exhaust but if you dont get a new exhaust you wont be disapointed by the bike. (Sorry about the spelling mistakes not to good at spelling.)
Ive recently purchaced a Yamaha Aerox YQ50. and i have to say it is a fantastic moped! It cost me £1800 pounds, Some places its more some places its less so shop around. When i took it out of the show room I was gleaming with joy sitting on my racy looking new bike, Its styling is like no other moped ive seen, It has so much muscle and aggression, But dont be fooled by this dressed up hair dryer! By law these machines must be restrected to 30mph in this country, (which i think is very dangerous) And this bike comes of the shop floor Really really over restricted! It will do 30 but it takes sooo long to get there, Its an embarrasment! And pretty dangerous in town too. After I done 600 miles to run the engine in I had it de-restricted and now gawd dam its its the fastest 50cc ive ever seen and the handling is that of a super bike, Due to its massive low-profile tyres and High quality Polini suspension. This scooter is De-restricted in many places, To derestrict remove the cone from the cylinder side of exhaust and then cut of the resonator pipe and weld and re-paint the hole, Alternitivly crimp the resonator pipe in a vice as close to the exhaust as posible this will do the trick but it is not recomended as the metal may fatigue and the exhaust may crack. This alone will significantly boos you acceleration and power but you will be limited to about 45mph, To change this remove the washer from the variator, This is a tricky job so best get a profesional to do it! When completed you bike should do 50-55mph. Of course there are limitless upgrades you could do to the engine, I have heard of a race tuned Aerox that will touch 80mph!? It also has 190mm Brembo disks front and rear help stop this hefty monster. All in all, I highly recomend this bike to beginners and modifiers alike! (I must just add, It is acctually illegal to modify of tune a moped without informing DVLA, Insurance company, ETC)
I have recently purcheased a Yamaha aerox 50 for my daughter for commuting to work/college. That was as far as my involvement goes, just paying for it. It was her choice, I think primarily on the looks of the machine. But now she has had it some time and got some use, it seems like she made a good choice. In my opinion, the scooter is well constructed mechanically. Runs extremely well, and has proven a good investment. It was purchased from a local Yamaha dealer on an "all in" package i.e. free insurance, helmet, C.B.T. RAC cover for 1 year etc. for £2000. The abilty to withstand wet weather is a must where we live and it has not hampered the scooters perfomance in any way. It was a 1st time ride for my daughter and the ease of which she found in getting the feel of it and ride was excellent. The support from Yamaha and the dealer network is good and helpful. The derestriction when applied gives the engine quite a bit more poke than you would expect, so caution is advised to any persons about to undergo this. She managed to scratch a side panel parking it against a post, but it was easy and inexpensive to replace the panel.
As my youngests 16th birthday approached he began to drop serious hints about getting a moped to runaround on, I suppose I should have been expecting it, his sister is hooked on two wheels and he has already rode a Gas Gas trial bike off road. Anyway, just as we were about to give up finding the right bike we found an immaculate mint second hand Aerox (3 months old )and it was love at first sight. The Aerox is quite a sporty looking little scooter, it has all of the usual modern scooter qualities, automatic transmission, brake levers on the handle bars but at the same time it is a sophisticated package. It is liquid cooled and has disk brakes front and rear, the dash is partly standard and partly LCD display and it has WIDE low profile tyres but the main reason it was irresistable to him is that it looks the part ...it is bright red and comes ithe loads of stickers , his is a Max Biaggi race replica but you can also get a Virgin replica. What you should know is that whatever the colour or however many stickers when you first get it it will be really really slow, unlike many of the Italian and Spanish bikes that take about thirty seconds to de restrict this is a completley different kettle of fish. The Aerox engine is actually restricted in three places 1. at the exaust 2. at the variator 3. at the RCD unit Full derestriction is not always an easy process and if you are not sure about it I reccomend getting the dealer to do it for you, (normally at the first service and costs around £50 extra) just tell them you want it fully derestricted otherwise they won't do the electronic chip contoller and no matter what you do to it the revs will be limited and it will never go over 45 mph. Stephens is now completely as Mr Yamaha intended and the difference is stunning, I wont make any daft claims as to its speed but lets just say that it doesn't get overtaken much and it shows 'off the clock' o
n the speedo (60 mph). It is still 100% reliable and has not been any trouble at all since we have had it, my only critisism is the noise from the exhaust, and the fact that I think it is really uncomfortable but he seems to love it !! Importantly, in the scooter stakes none of his mates have anything that is quicker so there you have it ..the Yamaha Aerox ... .. oh yes MBK make exactly the same bike, in fact yamaha buy all their mopeds off MBK then stick their own badges on them and charge about three hundred quid extra so if you want one of these sporty mopeds shop around for the best deal, there's loads of choice and enjoy some safe happy riding 15 Sept 2001... well there has been a few problems with the Yam ..I have to say that they have largley been due to rider abuse but you should be aware of the following ......... if you constantly 'stunt ride' this scooter particularly rolling stoppies then you will damage the headset.. £75 please, if you 'high side' it on an island and have to replace most of the plastic then thats £300 and if your brake master cylinder fails thats another sixty pounds, if your rear wheel drops down a hole in the road then it is liable to crack the aluminium and that is another seventy five pounds plus tyre !!!! ..new modifications have been a better exhaust system and uprated clutch rollers resulting in really nice acceleration and no loss of power up hills etc.... oh and I can't praise Rukka protective clothing enough because without it things would have been much worse ....not just fractured wrist and elbow !! see ya January 2003 ... I can hardly believe it but we still have this scooter ....Stephen is now 18 and has a car but he will not part with the Yam .. he abuses it regularly, wheelies, stoppies, jumps .. you name it (photos available for anyone who thinks its impossible to wheelie a 50cc auto) and through all this the engine has never
missed a beat .. obviously it may self destruct tomorrow now I have wrote this but even if it does then this ped has been / is fantasticly reliable.
Great little scooter - however, in common with most scooters in the UK, it's been restricted to 30mph by restricting the exhaust. This would be OK, but it also kills the low-end torque, so pulling off stop signs etc. can be hair-raising in traffic, as it doesn't pull away as fast as it needs to, and can leave you in some dangerous situations ! Derestricting it turns it into a different beast altogether. It's great in traffic, but I wouldn't want to ride it over long mileages. It's nippy once derestricted, and great fun to ride. Problems : rust on metal fittings, inc. fuel cap, and more particularly the brake levers, which can affect your brake lights and the electric starter. If you derestrict it, you may need a harder spark plug, and for some reason the engine temperature gauge cable has a tendency to become unclipped when you turn the handlebars. Good points : Loads of room under the seat - fits a bagful of shopping, or a full face helmet and kit. Really easy to use - twist and go, and sparky performance. Quite stylish as scooters go - supremely practical and easy to use, but don't pretend it's a real bike. A short-distance commuter's dream.
My son's mate has just bought a new EW50 Slider. It look's nothinglike any other model of scooter out right now it's really a little odd,but alot of fun.It is built for road and rugged riding within reason. The Slider will attract youngsters whom would most probaly not have bothered before,as you can use this machine near enough as you would a mountain bike on rough ground. It has removeable hard plastic sliders on the front body and side panels,so if and when you take a tumble the cost of repair to at least the bike is minimal. I have ridden this little mean machine and wheelies are an easey thing to do. He has told me already what he intends to do to it which includes all the dress up parts and anodised alloy wheels,
I have got a Yamaha Aerox YQ 50 , its been de-restricted got a race exhaust and race rollers which has made it go alot faster. It goes at about 60 mph and i have had this bike nearly 1 year know and it has been very reliable. Anyone who reads this i would say get your bike de-restricted because its alot more fun but also deadlier. I also have learner plates on the bike. With the bike having learner plates on it ,its illegal to actually have the bike and exhaust de-restricted but if you dont get caught you just have a laugh .
