This was the first moped i had, and aquired it from my dad at the age of 12 as a project. I rebuilt the engine with my dad, and it never went wrong after that! for £150 i had my first moped.
I learnt to ride on it, and it was very easy, very responsive on the throttle, but not too snappy (which was good) very smooth transition throughout the rev range, and corners very well, as the handlebars and seat both sit quite low in comparison to other mopeds. The top speed derestricted (with a stock engine) is around an indicated 45mph, which is around 35 to 45 real speed depending on the state of the speedo and speedo drive, as this can deteriate over time.
The engine is a Minarelli a/c Engine, which in my opinion is a very reliable motor. In the whole time i owned my AP50 i never once had to put oil in it (it always had oil in it) and the rollers didnt wear down as much as the ones in my SR50!
The plastics (despite looking cheap) disguise the real potential of this bike, and add to the enjoyment of it.
overall 10 out of 10, i cannot find a fault with it, highly reccomended
I brought a Suzui AP50 back in january 2002, it was second hand, and cost me £650, since then i havent looked back, it has been the best £650 i have ever spent, when i first saw it i thought 'Cheap, and crappy' but since then i have changed my mind, not only is it comfortable, nippy, and great through traffic, its also faster than both the Katana and the Zillion, i know this because i have overtaken at least 3 of each! The scooter has a 5.2 litre tank, which takes about £3.60 to fill up from empty, and has a 1.8 litre oil tank, as it is a 2-stroke, you have to fill this up generally every 100 miles, but it doesnt cos much. It has an under seat helmet bay, which also has a light, which does help in the dark! The scooter is a 49cc Air Cooled, with lots of nice touches, the paint schemes are good and the handling is even better, turns seem effortless as you can go round a roundabout at 35mph, its top speed varies, on a good day it can go about 38mph, and downhil about 41mph, but in the rain, it srugles to get to 35mph altogether. But basically, for £1,499 otr brand new, you cant go wrong, i will always recommen Suzuki Scooters, mainly because they are reliable, quick, and very well built. Cheap, Fast, Nippy, and now.....Fashionable!
