The 2009 E-Ton Beamer serves as another popular model in the E-Ton line. The growing popularity of E-Ton scooters in the American market has allowed for the manufacturer to keep costs relatively low, while making modest improvements to best sellers such as the Beamer and Matrix. The 2009 Beamer serves as the base model of the E-Ton 50cc scooter line. The simplistic form and capable two-stroke, single-cylinder engine makes them excellent, fuel efficient scooters for anyone looking to save some money at the pump, and have fun doing it.
The 2009 E-Ton Beamer is no interstate speed demon, but it is an excellent in-town option for anyone looking for a commuter scooter, a run-around two-wheeler or something to remove a little financial stress from the monthly gas budget. Tested at over 85 mpg, the 2009 Beamer will be worth its price tag in gasoline within a year's time (offering relative consideration to the amount of driving). With a 1.5-gallon gas tank, riders can expect to get well over 100 miles per tank. For students or professionals making short daily treks, this scooter will serve a supreme purpose.
Riding the 2009 E-Ton Beamer is also a lot of fun. Anyone comfortable on two wheels will have no issue in quickly mastering the command of this machine. It weighs in at less than 200 pounds, and with its rider-friendly features, it serves as a great first motor scooter. Getting up to speed is a bit of a task, but the Beamer handles well. It is capable of staying with traffic on surface streets. Additionally, it is easy to work in and out of tight traffic jams, when trying to find the front of the line during rush hour.
The 2009 E-Ton Beamer operates on the same power platform as its big brother, the Matrix. The 49.3cc engine is capable of carrying a driver and a passenger. Add too much weight and performance will suffer, but it will definitely get two people from point A to point B, and with impressive comfort for a 50cc scooter model. The notable difference in the E-Ton Beamer and E-Ton Matrix are the wheel sizes. The Beamer operates on a more traditional 10-inch front and rear wheel. Even so, the small wheels are wrapped in robust tires that make handling a little easier when driving in traffic or handling roadway hazards like bumps, gravel, or moist streets.
The styling of the 2009 E-Ton Beamer takes all of its cues from its predecessors. A comfortable two-in-one rider and passenger seat top the traditional full body faring. The instrumentation is easily found on the handlebars, and allows operators to keep their eyes on the road. For the price, the E-Ton Beamer is a great scooter option.
