The 2010 Schwinn Laguna is a 50cc entry-level scooter that comes in either a Red and White combination, or a Black Cherry and Black color scheme. This is the perfect choice for those searching for the classic scooter look. Its sporty aluminum wheels and retro-euro-look includes the modern touches of halogen headlights and sleek body styling to further enhance the classic vibes of the Laguna.
The 2010 Schwinn Laguna has a top speed of 45 miles per hour, so don’t expect to fly by on the highway on this bike. The lockable storage space under the two-up vinyl seat has a capacity of just over a half cubic foot of storage – large enough to hold your helmet, but that’s about it. It also has a miniscule rear rack, along with the option of a paint-matched bolt-on cargo box for those who carry around more cargo.
The straight-up seat position is comfortable, with an adjustable seat-to-handlebar position. The floorboard footing is quite small, but it is sufficient for a scooter. While there is a foot rest for a passenger, the extra weight of a second passenger will noticeably affect the handling of this bike. The carbureted, single overhead cam 50cc engine has good acceleration when cruising around the city, and the belt-driven continuously-variable transmission (CVT) shifts smoothly. Starting is simple with an electric start, and the kick-start option is a nice back-up feature. The 2010 Schwinn Laguna comes with hydraulic front disc brakes and drum type rear brakes, making stopping very easy.
Its mileage is impressive at almost 100 miles per gallon combined. This scooter's instrument cluster actually features a fuel gauge, which is a nice change from the usual trip-meter that most scooters offer. Other than the fuel gauge, the only other instrumentation the bike has is its speedometer, which is sufficient for a basic scooter like the 2010 Laguna.
Weighing in at 162 pounds, it is lighter than other Schwinn models. With a height of 43 inches and 68.4 inches overall, this semi-American-made scooter is a perfect choice for cruising around the city.
