What is a Motorized Bicycle:
A motorized bicycle is an actual bicycle with a motor jammed into it. The motorized bicycles commonly use a 49cc 2stroke clutchless and gearless engine. This kind of motorized bicycle is a DIY(Do it yourself) project and a lot of fun.
If you’re wondering that a motorized Kit is fuel efficient or not, let me explain technically. 1 litre of fuel lasts for days in a motorized bicycle. It is such a light weight vehicle and has very low rolling resistance. That’s why it returns excellent fuel economy.
The Motorized Kit is very simple to install. It comes with all th necessary bits and pieces with a simple to undersatnd construction manual. The chains are separate in this application. If you ever run out of fuel, you can still pedal your cycle. Also pedals are required to jump start the engine as it has no battery, no starter no kick.
A couple of years back this conversion was very economical. For 17,000 rupees you could have converted yourold bicycle in to a motorized bicycle. As majority of these engines are imported, the prices have gone steap after dollar hike and other import issues. Now such a setup costs around 40,000 rupees and it can be installed by one’s self.
As it is sub 50cc, it does not need any legal requirement to be road legal. At the end of the day It is a fun project not a highway legal machine. So are you going to do this conversion?
