Unlike many variated types of moped they are strong in frame department and less chance of belts and spinning things to take off your foot

Re: What's so great about Derbi mopeds? enlighten me

Dual variated, reliable engines. Newer engine models accept GY6 performance transmission bits. Rolling chassis is actually large enough to fit a real human comfortably. Very fast and bulletproof stock moped. Very fast and fan if kitted and tuned. Compatible with many Hobbit parts. Piston port models accept Puch cylinders with little to no modification. Chain final drive.

The list goes on.

I don't get why people always say this. A revolution or a DS50 being a scooter, sure. But a PP/PR/FR variant? How would they not be a moped?

Re: What's so great about Derbi mopeds? enlighten me

because they use a dual variated transmission aka *sC00tEr tEcH*

Still a moped

Start3 and start5 are not moped motors but who gives af they rule

Re: What's so great about Derbi mopeds? enlighten me

I mean they're definitely 100% mopeds. Even the ds50 says "moped" right on it.

Go buy a derbi and feel the magic~

Of course they are mopeds. Just using scooter tech. Nah but derbis are great because it's like the konami code of mopeds. I'm an idiot and my stock FR does almost 50, usually 45+ all day.

Re: What's so great about Derbi mopeds? enlighten me

TBH it is a lot to do with modern scooty tech, dual variated and case induction on the revos. But to me the unique thing that makes em truly rock is the final chain drive. So you can tune the variator and have full control separately on final gear ratios.

They dumb ugly but I can kinda appreciate them for that reason too. One of the only engines I've never owned.

As always, WillD killed it. Essentially it's all the fun of a hobbit but you're allowed to play with your gearing. Pretty much the best of both worlds ( dual variation / chain drive ).

I don't think it's the end all be all of mopeds however. Parts are not easy to come by unless you have " da plug " on them. Also it's a fairly intricate engine compared to other moped engine designs. By no means overly difficult to rebuild, however it takes a lot more attention than a E50 or something similar.

Last note.

Re: What's so great about Derbi mopeds? enlighten me

I think what was said about complication hurt Derbi in the US on 50cc stuff. No market for crazy exotic small displacements. Hard to sell someone a $4000+ 50cc from a company they've never heard of that technically should be registered as a motorcycle. The fools spending that are gonna buy a Ruckus so they can be cool at the saturday night rice festival. Then keep spending money and keep spending money then give up and go 150cc Chinese so they can keep up with the 50cc 2ts.

Fuggamoped, I wanna gp1 revolution to play with.

Re: What's so great about Derbi mopeds? enlighten me

Ride one, you'll know.

Ride one drunk with 400+ lbs. of riders while blasting past the other chumps at 50+ and no fear of seizing, you'll definitely know.

Yea seriously waving goodbye to everyone while riding dubs on the back of a derbi as you blast past rider after rider full tuck on their puchs and hondas and Tomos, just full upright sitting pretty and full to the brim in confidence with the engines integrity, yeah. Hard to deny derbis are the shit after that.

What are the best models to look out for? The 'Holy Grails' of Derbism in ascending list order? Variant look rad to me and DS50 have a Peugeot Rapido vibe going on.
