Brief look at my restricted Kymco Agility 50 scooter.

I was bored so thought I’d let you know what I think of 50cc bikes…

Just turned 16 and gotten a 50cc motorbike (zontes tiger 50) and as much
as I love the new found freedom, I absolutely hate the restrictions
especially when I get a queue of traffic behind me. Personally I know in
myself that I would be responsible enough to ride at least 125cc bike
but looking at other kids at my school who ride their little
scooters/mopeds, I understand why these restrictions are necessary
because they are absolute morons, saw one of them riding it on the damn
path, not pushing it, actually riding it, sure only 5-10mph but still
moronic and then used a public pathway to cut to a local shop, I guess
the idea is to restrict 16 year old for a year, unlucky for the sensible
ones but they can get a 125cc next year and let the morons get their 6
points (provisional license only has 6 points) and lose their license so
they can learn the hard way.

When ya parked up, was you not blocking a pedestrian walkway? 

Erik Rognes says:

Here in Sweden 50cc scooters is only allowed to go 28 mph 🙁

It’s cool to see you on a motorcycle that a student would ride. I know you’re not all about 50cc’s and 125’s, but it is nice to see how one is ridden professionally. Bigger bikes handle so much differently to smaller bikes. I think some instructors miss that, which is why I think that instructors for CBT should use 125’s as well so that if you make a mistake, they have the advantage of riding the same type of bike and can better instruct you on improvements.
An example would be my CBT instructor was on something like a 600cc bike (Yamaha something) and he asked why I had a little trouble pulling away quickly on an incline from stationary and cited the fact he had no problems on his bike – ignoring the 5 million KW power difference.
Any way, story time over. Cool video.

Mike Breen says:

If you want to use the cycle lane, 30MPH is far too fast. In countries where it is allowed, the limit is about 20MPH. You can then expect huge amounts of Police time to be wasted trying to Police the bloody noisy things because every man (boy!) and his dog de-restricts them.

TheMissendenFlyer says:

Talking of really opening my eyes up, did you see that lovely lady crossing the road at 2:00 in???   ….somewhat more racy than the Kymco I’d say ;0)

moonstrikerII says:

wher is a good parts dealer for kymko spares as i have a kymko 125 cc city.

TechBlissTV says:

Its fantastic not boo to the government. Fantastic for 16 year olds.

iphuckr says:

50cc scooters are dangerous. i’ve been riding one for a year (here in australia you need to have your car licence for a year before you can do a motorbike test) you hold up traffic, can’t go up hills, can’t get out of dangerous situations because you have no power. so glad i’m off one now. but everyone should experience riding a 50. they’ll appreciate their cars/bikes a lot more.

moonstrikerII says:

just passed my cbt today. 13/12/14 yesssssssss 🙂

dbauernf says:

Agility is actually made in China, some Kymco’s aren’t, but this one is. 🙂

If It Anit Broke Still Fix It says:

lol…think the “mmmm” at the end summed it up!

After CBT can you carry pillion?

i got the agilit 50cc 4 stroke and its a really nice city scooter!, it really is very (agility) nimble and fun the drive

zeonos says:

In denmark we have 30km/t, which go on the bike lanes, and 45km/t for road, the 45km/t requires either an mc or a car license. 

Electron Pusher says:

Thanks for this video. I’ve been riding a Kymco Agility 50(Derestricted) in the States since I was 16.  I’m about to turn 19 and am upgrading to a sportbike and your videos have been very helpful for learning more before I buy another bike. 
I think you’re exactly right about the speed problem, I think it’s probably more dangerous to ride a bike that’s slower than the rest of traffic than an actual motorcycle(Do you concur?).  I can go 40MPH, but even in a 35mph zone people are not happy to be behind me.

KidMoeMoe says:

I do really like your videos but please, do not think that allowing mopeds into cycle lanes is a good idea. It’s not. Kids and slow cyclists use cycle lanes (decent cyclists who can hold a reasonable speed tend to stay out of  them as the roads are more suited to 15mph+). Slow and inexperienced cyclists don’t need mopeds whizzing past them at 30mph. 

Alan Boulter says:

It is quiet obvious to us experienced riders that the lawmakers have never ridden anything with an engine. Yes, I totally agree it is putting riders at greater than necessary risks.

Pan-Demic! says:

An argument was put to me the other day, while attempting to discuss this topic. Unfortunately the topic was not one people considered discussing… I outlined my point in this video… Hatemail and Abuse HD . I had put a petition up to see what people thought about getting the restriction removed. It escalated so quickly that within 20 min it had to come down. 

TheFriskyBiker says:

I had a kymco super 9 it was amazing loved it! 50mph unrestricted

My petition:
Change all current motorcycle licensing laws.
Click this link to sign the petition:
https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/159728/sponsors/50OhnlKZR51obIkyCAgB

The current Motorcycle licensing laws are dangerous for young riders and deter them from progressing to a higher licence. The 28MPH limit on 50cc’s is extremely dangerous especially on duel carriageways. The A1 licence should be 250/300cc for motorway use, 125cc’s are treacherous for motorway use.

Things that need to change: 1- Remove the 28MPH limit on 50cc scooters, they are very dangerous. Most people de-restrict them anyway. 2- Change the following classes 125cc Lerner rider; 250/300cc A1 rider; 600+cc A unrestricted rider 3- Allow A1 upgrade system after 2 years of holding the A1 license. 4- Change CBT to include some theory 5- Lower the cost of tests as failing is up to £75 down the drain 6- Make more test times available for around 5PM to 7PM Mon to fri and weekends if possible.

Ozman says:

Hi! I’m looking to get one of these, I’m 16 and my folks are (as you would imagine) not too keen about it. With hard work and determination I could save up for it without any financial help. Is it worth doing? Thanks (:

mikey fearn says:

This is exactly the same scooter as what I got when I was 16, absolutely rock solid little thing. Had a problem with the battery, replaced that and it never skipped a beat. Only died when someone decided to nick it and proceeded to try and setting it on fire.

I do agree though that it’s far too dangerous to ride at 30MPH, as soon as you’re able to get a 125cc or larger, do it.

Soon2BeNinja says:

Just a tip for you, The restrictor is in the muffler, And you could always get a custom muffler, Ever been to Asia ? They have modded scooter’s everywhere you go

Fifth. 😛

dbauernf says:

I had the 125, it was great. 🙂 

james k says:

Does anyone know the cheapest place to insure a 50cc moped ? I live in the UK

TAZ says:

my April Sr 50 goes faster then 30 and i can tell the difference from the cbts school bikes then to mine 

TechBlissTV says:

What do you think of Sym Jet?
I have got a Sym jet 50cc, i have not yet ridden it but it is way massive than any moped I ever seen. Very heavy and very large

toxigames says:

I would be happy for a little bike doing less then 30 to be in a cycle lane

marc roberts says:

the agilty is a good scooter but I wopuld rather the 125cc version I used to have a kymco agilty rs 125 bought which was noit bad at all

Will Bennett says:

I had an Agility 125. I was ripped off when I bought it, but they’re good. Spares are crazy cheap. I had to get the clutch, front forks, electric controls and tyre replaced, which cost me around £250, including labour. The 125 easily did 60/65, which is about right for what I needed, and when I sold it a couple of weeks ago the guys who came for it were really surprised at its speed and acceleration. Great little things really

Adolf Hitler says:

Derristrict it you did my gilera and put a 172 kit on that was a fast bike

Gabriel Knight says:

I hate those 50 cc scooters. In germany, their speed is also limited and that makes them very dangerous in my opinion, because cars will overtake all the time, making you very vulnerable. You can´t even flow with traffic because you are always slower.
I feel safer on a motorcycle and if I will ever get a scooter, it will be at least a 250 cc.

The Dreamer says:

i buy that scooter yesterday

andy gilchrist says:

Are all of these Kymco Agility 50’s restricted? And how can I tell if one is?

Kim Parsons says:

I bought my 16 yr old daughter a 50cc Zontes Tiger on Wednesday. I took it out yesterday to see how it handles and noticed its painfully sluggish to pull away in first, as for hills – it wouldn’t even crawl up. Anyone know if this is just a ‘running in problem’?
