If you’re starting out on two wheels, and just aged 16, then you’ll be keen to check out this new Rieju MRT 50.
Rieju are a Spanish company, famous for their small capacity motorcycles and the MRT 50 offers a mix of cool Supermoto styling, a racy 6-speed gearbox and components sourced from some of the best names in Europe. The 49cc engine for example is supplied by Minarelli-Yamaha of Italy, whilst the radiator comes from KTM of Austria.
The machine also has `wavy’ style disc brakes, spoked alloy wheel rims and a remote reservoir, gas-damped rear monoshock. These are chassis details that you probably won’t find on a budget, learner motorcycle from the Far East and the two-stroke engine used by Rieju also sets it apart – many small capacity motorbikes are switching to four stroke power units.
The MRT 50 is available in either Supermoto or Enduro style, features three colour schemes and retails for £2099.00 including VAT, in the UK. It has a two year warranty on parts and labour.
