Here's a bike to make any 16-year-old's visor steam up: the 50cc supermoto-styled SM50, made in Taiwan and exclusively branded 'WK' in the UK.

The £2099 six-speed two-stroke WK SM50 looks the part with its aggressive supermoto bodywork, spoked wheels, a funky stainless steel underslung exhaust, blue anodised Renthal-style aluminium handlebars, wavy brake discs, a digital dash, a polished aluminium swingarm, aluminium brake and gear levers and a cleanly-finished two-stroke engine. It has an electric start, too, and the whole thing appears to be well screwed together.

This isn't some scaled down 'mini-me' version of the real thing - engine aside, it has the same stature as a 'proper' supermoto.
