Do your homework before buying a scooter
TGB Customers from around the world
I haven't owned a road motorcycle for over twenty years, but always thought I'd get another two wheeled machine sometime. I decided on the TGB after some research on the brand, and a fantastic deal from FXPowerSports in Melbourne was a bonus. I liked the TGB Bullet, but really wanted a scooter as an economical form of transport, so opted for the cheaper XRace. My thinking that my utilitarian austerity would lead to owning a boring machine lasted only a few minutes. I came to love this little scooter over the next couple of days. I have since done over 2500 kms in ten weeks and ride the thing every day, whether I need to go somewhere or not, sunshine or rain. What I originally purchased as a "method of transport" has become an enjoyable toy!

I have had this scooter since January and it has done me great! Easy maintenance and up keep. A great scooter for a learner, like myself, as it keeps it simple without skimping on performance to get you from A to B while still keeping up with the flow of traffic.

I just purchased this Scooter. After doing weeks of research on scooters I settled on this machine, the thing that swung me in it's favour was all the positive reviews TGB get. I have only had this machine 3 days and only done 60kms at this point but I already think it's great, it's sturdy, rides good and is compact. At this early stage I am a very happy scooterer.

I have now had my TGB 50cc for over a year. I go off into the country side and do around 70miles each time. It's a comfortabe bike, it does around 130 miles per fill up. It's hard to start the bike from cold, but when it goes, it goes well. I get around 40mph on the straight. When I come to a hill, it does slow down a little, but I can live with that. I love this bike, it was the best thing I ever purchased. Would I recomend it, yes I would. Cheap to run, ins is low, and the tax £16 a year. A great little bike.

TGB have long dedicated themselves to building solid reputable 50cc 2 stroke scooters. The TGB Tapo 50 is the latest incarnation, its been compiled using all the good ideas. Easy to service and maintain, a 50 cc 2 stroke scooter has got to be one of the most efficient forms of transport on the road today. Nothing beats short commutes on a 50, cheap on fuel, servicing, inexpensive to purchase.
If your daily commute involves suburb to suburb commuting then scooters like the Tapo should be very much in the mix when it comes to choice. The Tapo 50, like I've said throughout , is a definite step forward in quality and feel. You can see the target, it has the Euro 50 market firmly in its sights. There are no rattles, nothing loose, just a really solid reassuring feel. It looks cool, its fun to ride and there's plenty to play with if tinkering is your thing.
So there you have it, cheap to run, cheap to purchase, but certainly not cheap on quality. The sum of parts surprising for the price point. And finally if your in one of those states that allows you to ride a 50 on a car licence then its just another reason to give the Tapo a chance. ... click to read full review
The R50X looks blindingly fast standing still. Every detail catches your eye: the sharp front cowl, mirrored in the tailpiece grab-handles; clear-lensed indicators; stacked headlights; perforated footboards; racy red caliper and the race-style spannie exhaust. This is one hot-looking scooter, so it is no surprise that it is selling its socks off in the too-hot-to-be-retro category. Despite the semi-enclosing bodywork, the R50X is generously sized and fitting two should be easy. And that’s a good thing, because with this parked outside, picking up a passenger has never been easier... click to read full review
