Cruising around today in 35 degree weather on my scooter in a T-Shirt, I was thinking how you really dont even need a big engine. My 50cc takes me above the speedlimit everywhere except the Autobahn anyway and smokes cars through town and off the light.
The 50cc Solo is a motorcycle designed for the Japanese commuter and student market, boasting retro styling reminiscent of the classic bikes of the pre-WWII era and the ability to customize the bike to the buyer’s individual taste, through a selection of different colors and finishes on the frame, tank, bars, grips and other parts. By mixing and matching parts, Honda claimes a total of 285 different combinations. The Solo is a product of Honda’s “N Project”- a line of bikes designed to appeal to Japan’s large youth population. The bike only ever went on sale in Japan.
The Honda FTR has a 250cc engine, and is also pretty smooth once tricked out a bit.
