New Mopeds?

I always thought they stopped making mopeds a long time ago...like the 90s. But just now I was looking on craigslist and found a 2007 Tomos. What year did companies stop making mopeds? Or do they still make them?

Re: New Mopeds?

Take it easy on him, guys. He's 14 years old.

Ben...Tomos still makes mopeds and a few other companies around the world still make them, too. Peugeot is another....

Re: New Mopeds?

tomos and lazer still make them. Most people do not like them because they look kinda ugly and they have lots of plastics and things on them.

Re: New Mopeds?

If you live in the US, Tomos is definitely the way to go. Perhaps Peugeot? They got a nice variated model for 950 euro I should be able to get around my area if I looked hard enough (I got a used Tomos, even here I know where their dealers are). My guess is that a Peugeot moped dealer is as scarce in the US today as a Fiat dealer was when I owned my Fiat 850 Spyder in the late 70's.

For the record, Peugeot has one of the coolest cars I have seen around here.

Another kinda recently produced is the Kinetic and a Garelli clone, the Avanti (rebadged as a Cosmo also), all three made in India.

Re: New Mopeds?

In the US your current options are Tomos, Velosolex, and Laser. You may also find some places selling old stock 2003 model Kinetics. Several other brands are still making mopeds, they just aren't imported to the US.
