What is a 50cc Moped?

However, before you commit to buying anything, make sure you know 100% what you are investing in. So, with that in mind, what is a 50cc moped?

Let’s start by looking at what the CC actually means in the 50cc specification.

What is a 50cc moped?

What does 50cc mean?

CC stands for Cubic Centimetre, and 50c means it’s 50 cubic centimetres in size. That might seem quite small, and to an extent it is. 50cc is broadly speaking the smallest size of engine that you can get in a road-legal vehicle.50cc, though, is just the size of the engine. While that might not seem like it matters a great deal, it’s actually a very important part of the process.

What can a 50cc scooter do?

For a 50cc scooter, you will normally be capable of driving it with a top speed of 30 miles per hour. At Direct Bikes, every 50cc that we sell comes with a top speed of 30mph. This would mean that you cannot exceed this top speed; riding at your top speed will literally just mean that you can maintain your top speed of 30mph.You cannot, though, go higher than a 30mph top speed with our 50cc scooters.

Do 50cc scooters use gearboxes?

No, they do not. At Direct Bikes we have made sure that every 50cc scooter that we sell comes without a gearbox. This means that it uses what is known as CVT transmission, meaning that it is fully automatic. This means that the bike can pick up the top speed easily, and you don’t have to look at any kind of gears as you try and move to the highest speed you can.

What mileage do 50cc scooters provide?

A Direct Bikes 50cc moped will give you mileage in excess of 100 miles per gallon. That’s a very large number, and should ensure that you get a lot of help when it comes to having an affordable ride. Out of all the road legal vehicles that you can choose to drive in the UK, though, a 50cc moped is going to be among the most affordable from a petrol cost perspective.
