Guerrero Magic Econo G50


Here's something you don't see every day, from Leo in Argentina: A Guerrero Magic Econo G50. Leo tells me that this bike is made by Jialing of China, and assembled in Argentina, by Guerrero Magic. It's very similar to a Honda Cub, with a Honda-derived 50cc 4-stroke engine and 4-speed transmission with centrifugal clutch. Leo notes that styling-wise, it's very similar to the Honda C90, but with the light and the speedometer of the Kawasaki Magic 110cc. You can read more about this bike and other  Guerro Magico motorcycles and mopeds at the company's web site.

Thanks very much for the photos and the the information, Leo, and happy riding!

50cc cubs and mopeds are very popular in argentina... but 2-stroke engines are still more common... 4-stroke are usually above 90cc...

Thanks for posting my bike!
The guy of the other comment is right, there are more 2 stroke mopeds of 50cc than the 4 stroke ones, actually i think this is the only cub with a 50cc in Argentina.
The more common small bikes here in Argentina are cubs, of 110cc with the same kind of engine an transmision as mine, such as Honda Biz, and Yamaha Crypton.
Well, thanks for everything!
I will visit your blog usually for seeing some updates.

Back in the 1970s, most mopeds in the USA were 2-stroke models, the sole exceptions being the Hondas and the"Indian" Moped, which was a Chinese made moped with a 4-stroke engine, imported by a company who had purchased the Indian name.

Thanks to new emissions laws, all the mopeds sold in the US are 4-strokes now. Tomas sold a 2-stroke with a catalytic converter a few years ago, but it no longer meets emission standards.

Update: You can still get a Tomas 2-stroke moped in the US! I believe they slapped a big catalytic converter on it to meet emissions requirements. There's a shop near here that sells them- I'll get some photos and data.
