2012 California Scooter Co. Babydoll

2012 California Scooter Co. Babydoll Base

Intro

When the California Scooter Co launched their line of scooters, the company wanted to do something a little different. As a result, the scooter manufacturer came up with a design that provides the benefits of riding a scooter, while looking like a motorcycle. The 2012 California Scooter Co Babydoll is one of three models that are scooters built on a motorcycle-like frame.

When a rider hears the word scooter, a particular type of bike comes to mind. It’s usually smaller with a step through frame, but this is not the case with the 2012 California Scooter Co Babydoll. The Babydoll is in fact a scooter-style motorcycle and not the other way around. It is built on a steel frame and weighs a mere 240 lbs. The seat height of 27 inches is higher than on many bikes, but most riders will feel confident when stopped due to the light weight of the Babydoll.

The 2012 California Scooter Co Babydoll is equipped with a 149cc, four-stroke single cylinder engine that can produce 13.3 horsepower and 9.1 lb-ft of torque. While this may not seem like a powerful engine, when coupled with the weight of the bike, it is able to provide plenty of power for acceleration both from a stop and when at speed. Like a scooter, the Babydoll is nimble and zippy, and is able to take tight corners quite easily. The top speed of the 2012 California Scooter Co Babydoll is reported to be 55 to 65 mph depending on the weight of the rider and any cargo.

The frame is not the only difference between the 2012 California Scooter Co Babydoll and other scooters. Instead of having an automatic transmission, the Babydoll is equipped with a five-speed manual transmission. As a result, the rider must cycle through the gears using the clutch and throttle when riding the Babydoll. The light weight and 149cc engine of the Babydoll make this a good bike for novice riders, as they can improve their gear shifting skills while not worrying that the bike will get away from them.

The 2012 California Scooter Co Babydoll is very similar to the other models produced by the scooter manufacturer with key differences being the color and custom accents of the bike. The bodywork of the Babydoll is painted in a two-tone pink and white design, with silver pinstripe trim to give the scooter a classic American motorcycle look. The silver engine, metalflake seat, and wide whitewall tires make the 2012 California Scooter Co Babydoll easy to find in a crowd, while the design remains timeless. Its softer design is definitely aimed towards female riders.
