    SR50R VS SR MT50

    Looking at the specs on the bikes, the MT should out perform the SR.

    5.2nm vs 4.8nm (both 4kw)

    100kg vs 102kg

    7.5L vs 7.0L tank

    14" vs 13" wheels

    220mm vs 190mm front rotor


    The only advantages I can see on the spec sheets for the SR50R is that it has rear disc brake and adjustable preload on the rear spring.

     

    Also has much changed on the bikes over the last few years?

    Out of the box maybe, but after some tuning who knows. Also quickness may be interpreted in who gets up and down the mountain first, which depends on more than straight line dragstrip stuff.

    I can't see there would be a lot of difference.  Stock, they are all detuned for durability and hotted up, he who spends the most wins.

    s50r has better suspension as well. you need to ride them both. remember one is air cooled and the other is liquid cooled.

    Isn't the SR50R the 50cc to end all 50cc's?   I'd be picking the liquid cooled every day of the week if dollars were no worry.  But I'd say retail prices are fairly different between these two scooters. 

    Started out with a Zip 50. Now moving on to a HD 200. Wonder what's next....?? Not wondering any more.... TMAX!!!!!!

    I think the famous one had direct fuel injection and was programmable via a Gameboy! Maybe it was too powerful for the 50cc category, the new one has a Dellorto PHVA 17.5 carburettor. I used to see these 'Ditechs' when they were newish but none of them now, maybe they all crashed (this happens a lot to performance models) or blew up!

    Would be interested to hear from someone who has owned one.

    The ditech models are real little howlers to ride....but to get the most fun out of them you gotta be really getting up them.....which in turn causes them to be prone to breakdowns...they were discontinued in this country because buyers couldn't se the value in a scoot that was nearly twice the price of the identical carb fed model...if you like to twirl the spanners and have a basic mechanical knowledge, a ditech SR50  would be a hoot to own....I have a non running one in my garage as I am not that mechanicaly inclined...unfortunately the ditechs are quite fragile....engine wise...Big Smile
