2018 will also be a good year for the segment of a two-wheeled best scooters. With important developments in all the displacements. Especially in the 125 cc destined to A1 or the car with more than three years of experience. In addition, some manufacturers such as KYMCO or SYM have already advanced their next steps in this competitive category.
If you are thinking about changing or buying a new scooter in 2018. We recommend that you take a look at our selection. After 2017 in which almost all manufacturers renewed their range of scooter by the arrival of the Euro 4. There were still some models to come out as is the case of the Yamaha X Max 125 and 400. Two of the “premium” candidates to the category of scooter for the car license or for the A1. And scooter for users of the A2 motorcycle license seeking a vehicle for every day and maximum versatility.
We wanted to separate into two articles the best three-wheeled scooter, which you can check in this link, and two-wheeled. They are two independent categories, the first one oriented almost exclusively. For those who do not have a car license and need an agile vehicle. Within the category of motorcycles. We were surprised that the Piaggio group seems to be launching a good number of novelties. Not only focused on its three-wheeled MP3. Especially in the Vespa ranges with its configurations and the smaller displacement, that of the moped.
BMW has also surprised with the arrival of a medium and conventional scooter, not as sophisticated as the C 650 GT or C 600 Sport, such as the C 400 X. Which rounds out its line of motorcycles and scooter access to the German brand.
On the other hand, KYMCO with its concept of two and three wheels, and SYM with the Maxsym TL1 we are ahead of what is cooking in their R & D departments. Honda and Piaggio also have technological innovations with their electric scooters PCX and Vespa Elettrica. Likewise, Honda, I have heard the voice of all those who wanted to drive with the A2 card their fashion scooter, the X ADV and the Integra, with versions adapted to this type of permit.

In the case of the SR 50 R, the brakes are disc on both wheels. The 2018 version releases a new air filter, exhaust covers, decoration and a number carrier. Aprilia was one of the precursor brands of the 50 sportiest scooters.

The engine is still four-stroke, cooled by forced air and with a consumption below 2.8 liters per 100 kilometers. The power it gives is 9 hp. more than enough for the eminently urban use that we will give to the Besbi. It has LED elements in its lighting, but the main projector is still entrusted to a halogen bulb. The 12-inch wheels and the compactness of the whole set will make us move very smoothly through the city.
Daelim also seems willing to fight for the top in the segment of the 125 high-wheel scooter with the S16, where the KYMCO Agility City or SYM Symphony.
