Or is the 50cc a better motor, I'd only be using this to be getting from point A to point B in the city. No off road stuff or anything like that. I also weigh about 180lbs...

Suppose it depends on the vendor, most I've seen the 80cc's are about $10 more. The 80cc's have a little more torque which are better for hills and taking off. From what I've read the 50cc's vibrate a little less at high rpm's "top speed".
