MCN overall verdict rating is 4

This is the naked version of Derbi’s sexy GPR 50 race replica, officially brought into the UK from 2004-2009. The Spanish firm are now part of the massive Piaggio group, which includes Piaggio, Vespa, Aprilia, Gilera and Derbi. It’s the 49cc two-stoke, moped answer to one of the big super naked hitters like the Super Duke, Streetfighter, Speed Triple…except it only does 30mph. A funky little moped for lucky 16-year olds.

The GRP50 Nude is powered by an electric start, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled 49.9cc two-stroke engine, restricted to 30mph, with a six-speed gearbox. The motor is fed by a single 17.5mm carburettor.

Later models have a chunky steel beam frame, braced swingarm, wide tyres, single shock and upside forks, so the GRP 50 Nude’s chassis is more than a match for its engine. Fit sticky tyres and you’ll never have to back off for a corner. If you ever do need to brake, there’s a big 300mm single disc and twin-piston radial caliper up front for stoppies on demand. Ride quality is ok, but not really relevant on a tiny 50cc machine like this.

For a moped, the Derbi is very well equipped with proper big bike brakes, wheels, suspension, styling and an underseat pipe. Compare and buy parts for the Derbi GPR50.

Quality and Reliability

This is a very well put together motorcycle and left in standard condition the little two-stroke engine will run on forever. Reliability issues can arise when used and abused by first-time riders.

This is a moped for the lucky few. Depending on age, you’re looking around £2000 for a well looked after machine, which is a lot for a bike you’ll probably only keep for a year until you’re able to ride a 125cc. Find a Derbi GPR50 for sale.
