Keeway Flash 50

Restricted 50cc scooters really are the bain of a reviewer’s life, this is for a very simple reason… They are Horrifically, Horrendously, and Dangerously slow… The pace of a restricted 50cc motor scooter could easily be compared to a quadriplegic South American two-toed Sloth… or perhaps an arthritic, amputee Tortoise in quicksand. You see, what happens when you saddle up a restricted 50… especially after riding any 100cc plus, or even derestricted 50cc machine… is nothing. You cannot help but scream to yourself “Kill me NOW!” this initial reaction makes it very easy to give the scooter in question… as you would probably guess…a bit of a raw deal.


What I try to do with this particular genre… to which the Keeway belongs… is, so far as possible ignore the performance, or lack thereof for a while so I can fairly judge the rest of the machine’s qualities, this is much easier said than done. The first thing I noticed about the Flash was the styling; the Flash is a very modern take on scooter design. The front of the Flash especially… I’m not really sure what it looks like… maybe some kind of battle droid, or perhaps the physical embodiment of the Keeway logo… either way the result is a slick, modern looking machine. The bike has clearly been built to a price but the materials used and the finish achieved is reasonably good.

Keeway Venus 50

Testosterone is a steroid hormone that promotes libido, increased red blood cell count and more. To me it is a chemical that floats around in the body; the highest concentrations of which can be found in men’s bodies. This chemical as far as I can tell is designed to make men stupid. I am no doctor but as far as I can tell it makes men want to drive big, powerful, cars and motorbikes with loads of horsepower which (they think) will make them more attractive to women allowing them to procreate and continue the human race.

It also, apparently, makes men want to fight… generally as far as I can tell to secure the best female specimen for mating… like two bucks clashing antlers in the rutting season. This is a very powerful chemical, it is like a drug, and it is very hard to combat the urges that it awakens in your adolescent years.

Now to ride a scooter you have to battle this inner demon, you have to use your brain instead of your instincts. In other words you have to be very secure in your masculinity… I like to think I am a pretty secure guy; hell I ride a small, silver scooter every day of my life for transport and entertainment. So where am I going with this you ask… well let me tell you. When I dropped into the Keeway distributor to pick up the Keeway Venus 50 all was well… until my contact there said… “Look I don’t want you to take this as a slur on your manhood or anything but…” and there, sure enough was a metallic PINK, modern retro scooter. The only way it could be less manly would be if the entire cast of Priscilla Queen of the Desert were perched daintily on the handlebars! This is the first and only time the thought that we really needed a female reviewer crossed my mind. I even considered writing this under a pseudonym… perhaps Mary-Lou…

All jokes aside, the first thing you will notice is the paint, not so much the color as the quality. This is a hi tech looking metallic that is well applied and well thought out with contrast provided by a creamy beige panel running along the centre of the bike. The next thing you will notice is the quality of the components. Fit and finish is to a good standard with details like seat and taillights looking like high quality, well-designed units. The detailing continues to good-looking mirrors, chrome plated instrument cluster etc.

So picture if you will a small, shiny, pink scooter being ridden by a large, 6’3” behemoth in jeans, black boots and a leather motorcycle jacket… yes it was a sight to behold. The only thing more surprising than this image was how much I enjoyed the bike. If I ignored the colour (they also come in black) it was an absolute joy. Acceleration was brisk, handling was accurate, brakes were ok considering it has drums all round. This is a nice lightweight machine, clearly designed with the ladies in mind however it also managed to be the fastest 50cc scooter we have tested so far. On flat ground it had no trouble keeping up with traffic up to a whopping 67km/...
