Restricted scooters really are the bain of a life, this is for a very reason… They are Horrifically, and Dangerously slow… The pace of a 50cc motor scooter easily be compared to a quadriplegic American two-toed Sloth… or an arthritic, amputee Tortoise in You see, what happens you saddle up a restricted 50… after riding any 100cc or even derestricted 50cc is nothing. You cannot help but to yourself “Kill me NOW!” initial reaction makes it easy to give the scooter in as you would probably guess…a bit of a raw

What I try to do with this genre… to which the Keeway is, so far as possible ignore the performance, or thereof for a while so I can fairly the rest of the machine’s qualities, is much easier said done. The first thing I about the Flash was the styling; the is a very modern take on design.

The front of the Flash especially… not really sure what it like… maybe some of battle droid, or perhaps the embodiment of the Keeway logo… way the result is a slick, modern machine. The bike has clearly built to a price but the materials and the finish achieved is reasonably

As far as handling is concerned the Flash is 12” wheels tend to do with the twitchiness of a 10 or smaller but the reasonably high centre of and the steering geometry make the much more twitchy I would have expected. is quite strong from the and drum combination with of power to lock both easily. The feedback from the was less than ideal but most likely had a lot to do with the low kilometres on the bike we tested.

The flash is fairly easy to use on a basis, with a reasonably under seat compartment. The low of the Flash means moving it parking and the like are easily There is a side stand an engine cut-off and a centre provided.

The centre stand is a bit of a problem, it is to use and located in the same place as the which makes it awkward to

Ok so… I have left it as as humanly possible… performance, or the thereof. The Flash is, as I mentioned a restricted 50cc bike. for us but fortunate for the prospective buyer the tested was a HEAVILY restricted It turns out the local importer had to in the 45kph restricted model there were none of the ones floating around.

The removes the restrictions before here rendering it by all accounts a better performing machine. The one had the full gamut of restrictions a top speed restrictor (these to be easily removed by cutting a as the top speed was somewhere in the 45kph range.

Along with this is an exhaust restriction of some in place as even getting to top speed took an age. In I couldn’t test the 0 – 50kph as we normally do because I couldn’t get the to 50kph in the road available. The thing about this is for any people stuck with the they should be reasonably to disable. if you are feloniously inclined. The positive is that this of power results in a fairly fuel consumption rate of 87 MPG

Overall the Flash is a good-looking with reasonable braking and Day to day usefulness is also ok if you learn to with the minor foibles of the stand etc. If you are interested in a Italian designed machine and concerned with pace may be for you. It would be interesting to see how the performance increases with the of the restrictors because as it stands its is poor compared to most of competitors.

We will try and get hold of a version to test the numbers.

NB: All Ratings relate to the tested will be reviewed when/if we can a derestricted version.
