if they would import the rs 50 european model to the US id buy one tomorrow.





note the single sided swing arm, thats balls. if i could talk about 5 friends into getting one, these would be a friggin' blast.



im not sure i could handle the bone jarring 12 hp big bore kit though

I confess, Im a poser...................... every time i stop long enough for someone to see my bike!!!

I prefer the color scheme of the US RS50s but that single sided swingarm is a nice touch.

It is street legal here but I don't know about the age limits.

In the mag. article they had an overbore kit installed also. It double the horsepower with an aditional 25cc.

Scooter is my understanding. I was thinking that 15 yrs was the youngest for one here but I do not know.

I've seen the RS50 at a couple OH dealers. Even better, check page 33 of the April Motorcyclist. Race-ready Derbi GPR50's w/75cc kit shipped to your door for $2600!

Suck mean people!
