Shortlist: Vespa Granturismo. Honda SCV100 Lead. Yamaha TZR50.

Winner: Yamaha TZR50

Yamaha’s TZR50 is the most exciting 50cc machine in years.

It looks like a shrunken R1 superbike and is just what we all wish we’d been riding at 16. MCN Editor Marc Potter said: " It’s a real bike for the youngest bikers among us. "

For too long young riders have had little choice for their first step on to two-wheels but the Yamaha TZR50 changes that. That’s why it wins the Scooter & Moped of the Year Award.
