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.
