MCN overall verdict rating is 3

The V-Clic 50 is exactly how it looks – a basic, no frills moped that will get you about town if you’re 16. It’s a bargain, but if you’re a teenager it’s unlikely to impress any of your mates outside the chip shop and anyone over 17 should opt for a 125.

Engine

MCN rating rating is 3
Owners' rating rating is 4

The 4-stroke 50cc engine in the V-Clic is only good for a top speed of about 30mph and it takes it’s time getting there. But it’s unfair to criticise a moped engine for being a bit slow – the point is to be reliable and deliver good fuel economy. The V-Clic’s motor is a proven unit and they claim it gives anywhere from 70-100mpg.

Ride and Handling

MCN rating rating is 4
Owners' rating rating is 4

The light weight V-Clic 50 handles perfectly adequately for a scooter that’s all about getting from A to B. Its 79kg weight makes it very easy to live with - practically anyone could hoist it on and off the centre stand with ease and u-turns are effortless, but the brakes are weak.

Equipment

MCN rating rating is 3
Owners' rating rating is 3

There’s an underseat storage bay but it’s relatively small and couldn’t take my full-face helmet. There’s an open non-lockable glove box under the bars and a shopping hook, plus a matching rack and 32-litre top box are available as extras. Compare and buy parts for the V-Clic in the MCN Shop.

Quality and Reliability

MCN rating rating is 3
Owners' rating rating is 5

The V-Clic looks a little budget all over, but build quality is better than a lot of the similarly-priced competition.

Value

MCN rating rating is 5
Owners' rating rating is 4

The styling is starting to look a little dated, but what do you expect for £999? That's a bargain considering you get a 2-year warranty and the reassurance of a big brand badge on the front. Find a scooter for sale.

    I am completely new to 2 wheeled motoring, so this review comes from a student with almost no money but an infinite capacity for engine mashing fun. Or so all adults believe, anyway. First off, the fit and finish. You can see from the aesthetics this is essentially a Chinese moped. It's virtually identical to numerous Baotian models on sale, as well as almost any other Chinese company out there. But, Peugeot appear to have gone over it with a fine tooth comb. It all fits together perfectly, it's very solid. It's also light. I was surprised by the weight, but I'm a weakling late teen with a waist line fit for a girl, I am not the height of might. Its easy to get used to. Equipment wise, it's got all you really need. Fuel gage, a speedometer, steering lock. Seat is comfortable enough and the capacity for a pretty bulk standard top box is there. Ride wise, I have nothing to compare it too. It's fairly stable, but you can tell it's only got one rear spring (compared to the twin spring I had on the CBT moped). The bike crashes a bit in larger potholes. However, it is communicative of the road surface, thats for sure. For driving, well what fun! I was expecting this bike to be very sluggish (considering it's only a pathetic 50cc). Not so, the engine delivers a pretty nice throttle response at the line. Sure, it begins to become rather more sedate in acceleration at about 15mph but it can keep up with town traffic with absolutely no issue. Above all, it feels comfortable at 30mph. It can sit there fairly gently without too much work. it's lightness makes it easy to thread through traffic or tight corners (much fun near a roundabout, if I'm feeling remotely sport). It's a capable, if rather basic, little scooter to learn on.

are you sure

the fact is peugeot harldy build anything by them selves any hence why they have a alliance in the car industry with citroen to cut costs and by having a comapny build bikes//scooters for them a simple rebadge means no costs spent on development for them also the baotian has been out the same amount of time or sooner than the V-clic

Kennon...

I know people with a V-clic and with the chinese bike which looks almost exactly alike, but id say its more likely that the V-clic came first and the chinese version is the copy, and most likely available from several different companies, as are most chinese copies of large manufacturers bikes.

Rebadge

its nice how they tried to hide it as a peugeot when it is clearly a chinese scooter such as the chinese 4 stroke 50cc engine plus the whole design looks remarkably like a Baotian 50
