When you are on the lookout for a cheap 50cc scooter, the usual top speed that you’ll come across for a scooter is 30 miles per hour. If you read around, you can find that some models seem to have a different top speed from others. However, for the most part you should find that just about any cheap 50cc model will be capped out at around 30 miles per hour. At Direct Bikes, all of our models have a minimum top speed of 30 miles per hour. You can check out the speed specifications, and other details, simply by previewing the model on our website.

What dictates the top speed, though? This comes down to the engine size. The engine in a 50cc scooter or moped is going to be around 50 cubic centimetres in size. Despite that relatively small size, you can expect that your low-priced 50cc is going to be able to give you some very decent top speed. However, the main thing with a 50cc engine is that it’s not so much the high top speed – it’s the acceleration. All of our bikes offer excellent, consistent acceleration.

One of the main problems with driving something that is too fast is that you can feel like you are going too quickly. For a young or a new driver, it can be hard to put a stop to the speed you have picked up as quickly as you would want to.

Thanks to the handling of a Direct Bikes50cc, though, you can easily pull to a stop without going any faster than you need to. This allows you to drive quickly at the top speed of 30mph, knowing that you have sufficient stopping power to avoid an accident.

This is very important, especially given that a 50cc moped is often aimed at those who are quite new to driving. The limited top speed means that you can often find it quite hard to, say, cross a motorway. That’s why motorway driving is banned with a 50cc moped, regardless of your license.

So, with that in mind, many people choose to stick to driving around a low-cost 50cc moped in their home town or their local area. If you want to make sure that you can make an investment that you are happy with when it comes to buying a bike, then you should think about that.

What will you use your cheap 50cc moped for?

The main thing that you might find if you buy a moped is that you could be buying something that isn’t suitable for your lifestyle. Say, for example, your aim was to use your moped to go and do deliveries. If you would like to go and do that, then you have to pick up a moped with enough storage space on the back to give you enough room.

With that in mind, we recommend that you look to go and buy a moped with enough room on the back. Some will come with a top box, such as those from Direct Bikes, that you could use to help give you more storage. All of our 50cc models provide you with some storage space, as well as a free £49.99 top box for added storage room.

This would be useful for making sure you have enough space to carry the goods that you need in the one place without them being damaged during the journey.

Buy something without enough storage space on the back, though, and you will often pay for it in the long-term. We recommend that you look to buy a scooter that is suited to your lifestyle. For example, if you are intending to buy a scooter that you could use to carry around someone on the back then you should look to buy a moped with a wider, more comfortable seating solution.

Buying a quality 50cc moped

The main considerations that you need to think about when buying a 50cc moped include:

  • 50cc mopeds tend to be quite small. Are you going to be the right size for that given model? You might have to look at 50cc mopeds with a larger, wider body than you have so far.All our models have full size descriptions listed on-site.
  • What kind of speeds do you need to do? The 30mph top speed is a limit is a big thing to think about. If you need to say ride across a motorway, you will need more speed.
  • However, if you are doing most of the driving in a city then a 50cc moped is your best bet. The excellent handling and limited top speed are great for driving in pedestrian areas.
  • You should also take the time to look closely at fuel consumption. Many people struggle to make the most of a vehicle if it lacks good mileage. Look for something with at least 100mpg. Every Direct Bikes scooter comes with a mileage of 100mpg or above.

How much is too much for a cheap 50cc moped?

Price is often a relative question, but at Direct Bikes we’d suggest that you should always look to keep your pricing quite fair. We think that for the most part you should not be paying any more than around £999 for a cheap 50cc moped. And luckily, that’s exactly where our price range starts at!
