If you feel like forking out $3,900 (€3,065) for a 50cc scooter, then the Janus Halcyon 50 is probably one of the best choices. That is if you can get to Goshen, Indiana and pick the bike yourself; if not, Janus can deliver it at your door for $5,300 (€4,165).
Now, the price may seem a bit on the steep side, but the Janus Halcyon 50 is no run off the mill bike. You're looking at a hand-made one, with 85% of the parts made in the US. And even more, you will definitely not get this amazing retro styling evoking the bikes of the 1920's from any Taiwan manufacturer.

This 2-stroke 49.9cc single-cylinder engine comes with water cooling and a very convenient fuel tank holding 3 gallons (roughly 12 L) of fuel, providing a huge range (180 miles or 290 km) before having to refuel. Starting the Janus Halcyon 50 can be don with either a kick or an electric system and the 6-speed gearbox makes it suitable for cross-town cruises and for longer trips.

The 9.8 HP engine offers Janus Halcyon 50 a top speed of 55 mph (88 km/h). The bike is painfully beautiful and sports custom leather work for the seat and saddles, handcrafted and manually painted frame and fenders and will definitely turn a lot of heads.
