I have a serious question about 50cc scooters, my wife tells me we cannot get insurance for them and cannot get them registered. I read the article about the 60cc scooter and was wondering if 10cc would made the difference.

The reason why most 50cc scooters/motorcycles are not registered is because they don't pass the emission testing. The main problem is that 50cc scooters are powered by two-stroke engines.

So because 50cc or bigger two-stroke engine scooters do not pass the exhaust emission test, they cannot get registration... no registration means now-a-day that you cannot get insurance.

The Mbike JAF 60T-7 is powered by a 60cc four-stroke engine and registration (license plates) is no problem.

I believe I am correct that bikes 50cc or less are not allowed on the street so therefore cannot be registered. OK to ride in small sois without plates, they are quite common in Thailand. If your local 7-11 is just outside the moobahn entrance for instance or you live in a small rural village off the main road, I doubt you would have any problems.

50 or 60cc scooters can be registered without any problems... the only problem is that most 50cc scooters are two-strokes. And two-strokes are currently a no no for registration. A 50, 60 or 70cc four-stroke scooter should be no problem at all...
