Honda Zoomer 50 review

The Honda Zoomer is a funky scoot great for commuting and looking good around town
Moto GP champions use them to get around the paddock. Students use them for nipping around town.
The Honda Zoomer has Honda's legendary reliability as standard
The Zoomer isn't a great scooter when it comes to storage

Moto GP champions use them to get around the paddock. Students use them for nipping around town. Just about everyone can use them as stylish accessories as well as practical, economical and environmentally responsible about-town transport. The diminutive, minimalist Zoomer commands instant respect everywhere it goes.

Its advanced liquid-cooled, fuel-injected engine starts at one touch of a button. Chunky tyres, compliant suspension and a low tank make its handling balanced and easy. Its wickedly flamboyant personality is accentuated by bug-eye headlights and wide mirrors which also (incidentally) provide excellent visibility. With highly individualistic styling, funky colour variations and myriad possibilities for customisation, there's one just waiting for you to pick it, make it your own and get riding. 

No mess. No fuss. Just 50ccs of pure enjoyment, unlimited freedom and dependable Honda quality. Have fun!
