Buying a 50cc moped scooter

Anyone know a good quality 50cc bike? My motorcycle license is expired. Looking at some small models for around town. Would like an affordable model. Not familiar with scooters and moped models and brand quality.

Re: Buying a 50cc moped scooter

50cc models, in my experience, are few and far between.

Might be an idea to start looking on Sahibinden.com

This URL limits it to 50cc, moped and 2018 to 2020:
https://www.sahibinden.com/motosikle...2&a267=1196544

The only brand name in the results was Peugeot.
Brand named models are generally better quality.

We used to have a Mondial, these are Chinese...cheap to buy and maintain.
It eventually packed up after 10 years...engine blown.

Now we have a Yamaha XMax and the difference in quality is massive.

If you look at most Turkish scooter riders (at least in our area) they tend to ride the cheaper makes.

Do I need to register and inspect a 50cc scooter

Looking at* 50cc scooters if I cant get a motorcycle licence.* Do I need to register it in my name? If so, how would i go about doing so.
EDIT: got an answer. Yes, a 49cc bike needs to have a ruhsat/registration paperwork and a license plate. Only a car lisence is required.. no motorcycle license needed. No insurance needed.... but recommended.
Thanks Doc Martin for tracking down this info.

Re: Do I need to register and inspect at 50cc scooter

I don't understand your question Ryan. If you don't have a licence you can't drive one, no matter whose name it is registered in.

I don't think you need a licence 50cc and under. That was the old law but it could have changed.

All the stores advertise. No license or insurance needed. On the back of you turkish licence it says what you can ride. Wondering if there are ownership papers... and do I need to go somewhere to put it in my name?

So do you have a Turkish Licence? My Turkish licence has nothing about a bike or scooter of any cc.

Re: Do I need to register and inspect a 50cc scooter

The old style Turkish licence simply had the class of vehicle you were allowed to drive printed on the front, for example B for a car.
The new European style Turkish licence which you must change your old Turkish licence over to by the end of 2020 has the letters of vehicles you are allowed to drive printed under the photo. The full list of corresponding vehicles - basically matching that on a UK or European licence - is printed on the back.
The motorycle categories are in the A A1 and A2 list.
