I have always had a lot of fun on the ‘little’ motorcycles. I try not to repeat my motorcycle purchases but I would probably buy another MB5...

I had more fun per cc on my modded crf50 than just about anything else, been eyeballing a grom cause i think a clutch would add to the fun factor.

You can't ride a scooter without having an ear to ear grin, my current scoot is a Burgman 400, I always seem to have one around, past scoots..'97 Honda SR50, '02 Honda CH80K2, '06 Honda PS250, '10 Honda SH150i. Nothing beats 101 Mpg going WFO @40 Mph (CH80K2)

One of my stable of 5 bikes is a '15 Yamaha TMAX 530. Love that thing! If I can keep the speed 60-70 in rain I don't get wet. Awesome!

Thumbs up Vino 125

I recently sold my Yamaha Vino 125. I had bought it cheap because it needed work and made some money on it. That thing was SO much fun around town. I even made a trip on it out to Hillsboro from Vancouver and it had juuuuuust enough power to get across the I-5 bridge.

OP, I'm curious what your top speed on that is?

So far, top speed is 45 mph downhill

I think I am enjoying the character of the two-stroke engine even more than the lightness and the ease of having no clutch.

Something magical about those little engines! I didn't like 110cc Honda we used to have even nearly that much...

Crazy biker hooligan!

I just bought a 2009 Aprilia Sportcity 50cc four-stroke for my kid. We didn't get the hot rod power every two strokes thing like you. We were barely breaking 30 mph on the flats.

I looked up derestriction stuff on the internet. Apparently, Aprilia has about a million different models, and some of it doesn't apply to ours. There's no carb inlet restrictor, or spacer in the variator. I was able to cut the rev limit wire in the CDI. Also bought lighter roller weights and a Malossi "racing" clutch.

Now, we can do an easy 35 on the flats, approaching 40 on a really looong flat stretch (the road by Arlington Airport is our Bonneville Salt Flats).

So, watch out, Speedboy!

Heh, on an off chance that we will meet somewhere between Seattle and Arlington on Hw 9 after couple of hours of WOT hooliganism, backatcha!

Don't tell anyone, but I passed a Harley in a tight turn. He wasn't amused...

Ahhh yes, the other thing about little bikes. They 'can' out handle their bigger siblings. Same goes for the true Supersport bikes. There is a track guy at work I sold one of my Ninja 250's (2007) to 'for his kid' and after riding it back and forth to work a number of times he blames me for getting him hooked on smaller bikes. He rides it often on his 80+ mile commute now. Gets to work at the same time his 1000 RR does and gets around 60 mpg doing it.
I sold my three Ninja 250's and bought a '15 Yamaha R3. A more refined small bike for sure. Put a 16 tooth front sprocket and handlebar kit on it and see no more changes in the future.
I am working on a neighbor for the scooter that has been sitting and not moving for the last 5 years in their yard...
