Suzuki Other description
I bought this scooter used in 2003, a good runner that always starts. Used it as a pit bike at Road America, needed a bike with a DOT plate at the track. This is a great little scooter, just don't use it any more. Please reach me if you have questions. Extra info:
The Suzuki FZ50 was a step-through commuter moped, described by a Motor Cycle News road tester in 1979 as "the most attractive moped I've seen and must take the run-about class into a new area of perfection" with "sporty alloy spoked wheels" but having small, "ineffective" legshields with footpegs, not footboards.
Produced by Suzuki, it was known by the nickname "Suzy" in UK, but in other markets as Youdy. It had a 49 cc two-stroke pivoted engine integral with the transmission, and a coil-over damper mounted to the single-sided swinging arm enclosing the chain final drive.
Restricted to 30 mph and with an automatic transmission, the engine used Suzuki's CCI oil-injection lubrication system with underseat separate fuel and oil tanks, a fuel gauge and front and rear carriers.
There were no pedals, unlike most mopeds, instead using a left-side mounted engine kick-start, normally found on larger machines, with a lock-out operated by the handlebar-mounted rear brake lever.

Ryan Villopoto has already secured the 2012 AMA Supercross Championship but that doesn’t mean he’s ready to let up and take it easy over the remainder of the season. The Monster Energy Kawasaki racer clinched his second consecutive title two weeks ago in Houston, Texas, but he continued his dominance in AMA Supercross’ return to New Orleans’ Superdome, taking the holeshot and leading all 20 laps for his ninth win of the season in 14 rounds. The New Orleans round may have lacked some big names currently nursing injuries such as Ryan Dungey, James Stewart and Chad Reed, but Villopoto provided a star effort in the first AMA Supercross race in the city since 2009.Tue, 02 Apr 2013
