It is the one scooter which is one the list as a must try. The body is designed to provide the sporty look that you may be going for. The wide tires provide the gripping power that will make even a new rider feel comfortable when traveling at top speeds.

Pros of the Yamaha Aerox:


The automatic transmission on the Yamaha Aerox 50cc has been dubbed by many as one of the most reliable transmissions found on any scooter. Factory tuning provides the kind of performance which allows you to get the maximum amount of fun out of the sports scooter.

All of the focus on providing sports style performance has not led to a reduction in the safety factors you will find on this sporty model. The disc brakes offer maximum stopping power while the dual pitch fork suspension makes sure that the wheels stay on the ground no matter what you are driving through. Its single disc brakes offer strong and responsive action, providing safety and peace of mind in the process.

The Yamaha Aerox 50cc packs a powerful punch. This scooter is like having new sport motorcycle. The air cooled engine really gets up and goes.

With these new sport scooters you can reach speeds of up to 50 miles per hour.

The Aerox features a tough suspension system, which is very comfortable and relaxing ride for all users. The specifications such as rear suspension unit swing allows the Aerox to absorb the terrain’s bumps and cracks, maintaining and balancing a consistent level of comfort, no matter the conditions.

The scooter’s tires allow a high level of grip, whether it’s during clear sunny days or in the middle of rainfall, the Aerox remains sharp and focused around the bends. The Yamaha Aerox 50cc performs under any condition.

When riding at night or under tough weather conditions, the Yamaha Aerox 50cc has powerful headlights and taillights that allow for clear vision.

The Yamaha Aerox 50cc comes fully equipped with a big storage compartment underneath the seat. The compartment is big enough for a full face helmet or any other bulky item you might be carrying.

The Yamaha Aerox 50cc features a sleek, modern design. Its sporty feel and attention-grabbing exterior features makes it stand out from the crowd.

The Yamaha Aerox is extremely economical. You can get almost 132 miles per gallon or 56 kilometers per liter. This sport moped is extremely friendly on the bank account as well.

The alarm feature that you can have installed is really sensitive. No one will tamper with this bike and if someone does, it is so loud everyone will know about it.


Cons of the Yamaha Aerox 50cc:

The scooter is really well built and light, but when I got it the Yamaha was restricted so it only went 35 mph. If you get it unrestricted then it goes around 50 mph.

The scooter is not very powerful in stock condition. There are some add-ons that you have to buy to give it some more power. This pushes the price of the bike even higher.

These things definitely improve the performance though.


Benefits I admire:


I got bored of 30mph, so decided to have the engine de-restriction done to the bike and added a sports pipe. I chose the Doppler S3R high performance sports pipe and I have to say I was surprised at the speed and acceleration I got out of my Aerox. The Aerox will easily reach 55mph.

The Yamaha Aerox looks good, runs smoothly and never fails to start first time.  The air cooled engine really helps the scooter perform magically.  What a tremendous machine!!

The Yamaha Aerox plate with Viper power pipe and Poloni rollers are excellent accessories to add to the Aerox. They really gives the 2 … engine a boost and maximize the performance of the bike.

If you want a reliable FAST and off the mark and HIGH TOP END SPEED buy the Aerox 50, I don’t know if there are different makes but I got the Aerox R Max-Biaggi. When I got it, I was told it would get to about 55mph. There have been occasions where I have reached 60 mph.


Tips from the Provider:


Cover the muffler outlet with a plastic bag after the engine has cooled down.

Make sure that all caps and covers as well as all electrical couplers and connectors, including the spark plug cap, are tightly installed.

Remove extremely stubborn dirt, like oil burnt onto the crankcase, with a degreasing agent and a brush, but never apply such products onto seals, gaskets and wheel axles. Always rinse the dirt and degreaser off with water.

Apply a corrosion protection spray on all metal, including chrome- and nickel-plated, surfaces to prevent corrosion.

The Yamaha Aerox 50cc sport bike is excellent affordable buy. I have found the scooter to have the power and personality of a much powerful motor scooter. This scooter is high end and it does not feel like a 50cc moped.

And don’t forget to look into motorbike breakdown cover options, even if really good those things aren’t unbreakable!
