Pulse Scout 49 Reviews

Fantastic Bike! I got it for my birthday for my first bike! I can easily get 100mpg out of it on the super unleaded that you can buy in the UK. It is quite a nippy little bike easily making its top speed of about 31 mph. Only problem I have had with it is how slow it is up hills! It only seems to go 20mph up hills which is quite frustrating when a line of traffic is behind you.
Overall I would give this bike a 8 out of 10 because of its practicality and nippiness on straights.
(I have also noticed a speed limiter when you are going downhill which is annoying as at 16 you kind of want to be going fast down hills)

I have owned my Pulse Scout 49cc scooter for six months now. I bought it
as a means of commuting as cheaply as possible between my home and the
centre of Bristol. The Pulse Scout is a well made scooter and a strong
build. It has both an electric starter and a kick start. The electric
starter works best if you apply a little thottle at the same time as
pressing the starter.

Once started it ticks over on the automatic choke until warmed up. The
engine is reasonably quiet for a moped of this size and on the road it
is responsive and nippy. It is a little underpowered on hills or
inclines but that is not unusual for this type of moped. I weigh in at
15 stones and it copes with me quite well. It has more than enough power
for the built up roads of Bristol where I live and in the City it would
be unlikely that you could ever get to 30 mph in any vehicle, let alone
this scooter. In Bristol, bikes and scooters etc are allowed to use bus
lanes which speeds up the journey enormously and of course parking is
often free in most places for scooters. A journey from my house into the
centre of Bristol, 6 miles, by car in the rush hour can take 45-60
minutes crawling in traffic. On the Pulse Scout the same journey takes
20 minutes!!!

It has a 6.5 litre fuel tank with the lockable filler cap toward the
rear of the seat. This volume of unleaded petrol will last for ages and
give a good return on mpg if the scooter is ridden economically.

The seat is lockable and underneath has a storage space for tools, locks
etc but it is a little on the small side to take a full face crash
helmet. There is a small storage space below the front handlebars for
documents or small items and a useful plastic hook to secure a bag.
The indicator and horn switches are on the left hand side and the
starter and lights switch on the right. Gauges include a speedo on
principally kilometres but also mile per hour and a petrol guage which
pretty much reflects what is in the tank though its recommended that you
check the miles and look inside the tank as the guage does tend to drop
very quickly. Front disc brakes and rear drum brakes are adequate to
provide safe braking.

There is space on the rear to fix a back box if required and some
companies supply windshields which fix using the mirror screw holes.

These are a good idea as anything which reduces drag is going to
increase speed and fuel economy.

Tyres are small but robust and suspension average for this model. It is
advised that you look ahead and try to avoid any large potholes. The
seat is reasonably comfortable but being of a plastic material does
become a little slippery. The bike has two stands. A firm stand and a
temporary lean stand. My advice is to never use the latter and only put
it on its firm stand, otherwise in a gust of wind it will fall over.

It is 1660 mm by 663mm which is small and it will fit easily into a
small space in any garage.

Dont be fooled by this scooter. It is a nippy little beastie and I
thoroughly recommend anyone riding one to get some proper protective
kit, jacket, trousers, boots and of course a must, gloves.

I have enjoyed this scooter so much that i have given it to my son to
commute into work and I have just bought myself a second identical one.

I have owned my Pulse Scout 49 for just under a year and it has been a brilliant first scooter. The Scout's engine is nippy and very smooth, it soon gets up to the top speed of 30mph which is fast enough for any town traffic. As the scooter is so light it is really easy to ride making it a pleasure to commute on, and makes filtering easy. Don't let the physical size of the bike put you off as I am 6ft and 15 stone and the bike is great for me.
I can get around 100 miles on £5 of fuel, and insurance is cheap at £300 for me as a first time rider. (16 years old)
I have also fitted a universal windscreen from Chinese Motorcycle Parts Online for £25 and makes the scooter even better to ride as you encounter a lot less drag. This was simple to fit and makes a brilliant addition to the bike.

I have covered 2700 km's and looking forward to many more happy miles on my Pulse Scout 49.
