Looks very desirable and nickable.

Didn’t even think that, cheap as far as i can find out but none for sale :(

I’d settle for a Honda Rukus

I had one of them about 10 or 12 years ago, just the 50cc one, it was an experience to ride it. Painfully slow, fuel tank is in the frame, tyres made from plastic, brakes made of cheese, headlights pointless, felt like riding a mountain bike with an engine. And surprisingly heavy considering its size.
Plenty of people fit bigger engines to them but I'd seriously consider getting very good life insurance if you did because I can't imagine it being safe at all.

That is a very cool looking thing

Saw a little Benelli in Preston Superbikes (think that's what they're called - where Slingers used to be), gotta admit I quite liked that too - nothing like as simplistic as the above, but nicer looking than the Honda

Quicker and cheaper than the MSX too, actually sold out last year them Benelli’s. Wanted one for the misses, she asked me to pick it up... so i did. She said ‘answered my question’ and walked off, basically it will get nicked.

I’m thinking of getting a pit bike or a tiny bike in July just for fun

I’m even going to do a spot of off reading on it
