Get Scooter features at a moped price with the Honda 50

You could hardly call it a moped-scooter features like two-up seating, speedometer and leg shields are included at only 79 gns. tax paid. The Honda 50 isn’t a scooter either-small scooter wheels give less road control. The Honda 50 isn’t a popping 2-stroke; it ‘s purring 4-stroke engine gets its high performance from components electronically measured with instruments used by Swiss watch-makers. It keeps oil apart from petrol, and off your plugs . . . gives twice the scooter’s m.p.g. And what scooter includes trafficators and wing mirrors in its price? The Honda 50 isn ‘t a scooter or a moped , but by any name you’ll call it the best buy in two wheels.

Honda 50 (C100) 79 gns. Tax paid
