2013 Rieju RS3 50, Small Racing Engine in a Big Racing Body [Photo Gallery]
The 2013 Rieju RS3 50 is a scaled-down version of a racing bike and boasts a lot of technology to make things fast, safe, comfortable and fun. Top-drawer inverted Showa forks make sure steering is precise and the bike can ride well on a variety of roads, with the 280/220mm disc brakes offering a firm and dependable stopping power.
The 50cc 2-stroke liquid-cooled engine is a Yamaha-Minarelli NG unit, and not only does it pack more punch than you'd expect, it is also ready for some tuning. The 6-speed manual transmission offers exceptional thrust and will help the rider get the best from the Rieju RS3 50. Young riders can use the Rieju RS3 50 to train their shifting skills, but the bike will also feel natural as a high-mileage commuter for experienced riders, as well.
The massive 12 L (3.1 gal) tank comes with an additional 1.1 L (0.29 gal) oil tank for separate mixing and provides a huge range. Available in black and white, the Rieju RS3 50 is one really good-looking small-displacement starter bike.
