The new Tao Tao Thunder 49cc scooter is one of the best quality models on the market. The Thunder 49cc is powered by a clean-running, 49cc 4-stroke engine that gets up to 117 miles per gallon! The bike is road-ready with big, 12 inch alloy rims and larger tires than most scooters in this class. Easy electric start, smooth shifting automatic V-belt driven transmission, and full lights including dual LED headlights all come standard on this model. At 190 pounds, this bike is lightweight and easy to handle for almost any rider. Hand operated front disc and rear drum brakes offer grippy stopping power and the full front and rear suspension make for a comfy yet responsive ride. An aerodynamic body and sharp graphics top off this top-of-the-line scooter from Tao. Includes rear trunk. California Air Resources Board (CARB) approved! Pick your favorite color!
