The 2011 Peirspeed Key West is a comfortable step-through scooter with a balanced ride and sporty feel. It's a significant upgrade from the older Peirspeed design with a much better look and more rider-centric design. The 49cc two-stroke puts out enough power to move two riders comfortably. Best of all, a twist of the throttle is all that's required to propel the Key West – no complicated shifting and no aggravating kick-start. Just put in the key, start the engine with its integrated electric start, and it’s off.
The Key West was built with the rider in mind and has several standard amenities that make it a great choice. The large-gauge dashboard is easy to read at a glance and the step-through design means easy mount and dismount. The long seat easily accommodates two and the large storage under that seat allows for a full-face helmet to be locked away. The electric start and Mikuni carburetor mean that the Key West will run in all types of weather. Excellent off-the-line acceleration and an automated transmission give it an easy drive.
The Peirspeed Key West has a great, sporty feel and a well-cushioned ride for its class. When parked, the locking steering column means added security. Safety features include excellent braking, thanks to those front discs, and street-legal lighting, including a powerful halogen front beam. The fit and comfort of the Key West are unusual for this low price point. Three color choices appeal to everyone and the updated, sporty look make it a winner all the way around.
