The 2013 Genuine Scooter Co Buddy is a Scooter Style Motorcycle equipped with a 50cc, two-stroke, single cylinder engine. This engine has a maximum speed of 30 miles per hour (mph) which is not something that will win you any races however this is not what this scooter was designed to do. It was made with the concept of running in town errands and getting around in short distances. With that in mind, the Buddy has a 1.7 gallon fuel tank which might sound small but when the 100 miles per gallon (mpg) is taken into account, this scooter can travel the distance on very little fuel, making it a very cost effective scooter. The front suspension consists of a telescopic fork front while the rear suspension is a single sided swing arm with a single rear shock absorber. The suspension is not a complicated set up however it does provide sufficient shock absorption for the typical road conditions that this scooter would encounter on a daily ride. The Buddy 50 Lemon head has front hydraulic disc brakes and rear drum brakes. These two systems provide all the braking power necessary for a scooter with a maximum speed of 30 miles per hour.
