Default Re: 80cc? Is it really? And isn't 50cc a motorcycle?

I have a 50cc and a 66cc, They look the same, it's difficult to tell the difference by looking at them. The 50cc runs much smoother, but lacks the torque, a 15mph wind will decrease your speed a lot and you'll be pedaling more on take offs. The 66cc I can take off from a stop and powers through a 15mph wind, but vibrates quite a bit more. The 66cc might be a couple mph faster.

I have more stop signs on my route so I prefer the 66cc. For longer rides with minimal stops I would prefer the 50cc.
