Tomos builds scooters made for today's urban rider who needs reliable, low-cost transportation that doesn't compromise on comfort. The latest rendition, the 2011 Tomos Nitro scooter, sees several upgrades, nearly all of which are aimed towards improving rider comfort. Riders will notice the larger seat, larger footpad, sleeker, more aerodynamic design, and more cushioned ride in the new Nitro. Improvements in engine design will mean more reliability and easier maintenance as well.
The styling of the 2011 Tomos Nitro follows this trend, aiming towards a balance between a unique, somewhat futuristic look and sleek aerodynamics for smoother movement in headwinds. With formed tail lamp and mirror bezels, well-positioned safety lighting, and the large illuminating headlamps, style is integrated with safety. Little touches like the high performance tip added to the exhaust and the carbon fiber appearing plastic on the dashboard make the Nitro stand out from the usual crowd in this market segment.
Performance is also a priority and for its small displacement, the 49-cc engine in the 2011 Tomos Nitro puts out plenty of power with a strong, but comfortable speed gain off the line at lights and stop signs. The larger 150-cc option has a powerfully sporty feel and much more aggressive exhaust note to accentuate the larger engine's abilities. Riders will notice that at about 30 miles per hour (top speed is about 35 miles per hour) in the Nitro 50, it is a quiet machine that allows the rider to enjoy the ride. The four-stroke engine means no oil mixing at fill ups and electric start means easy operation.
