I've had my Zip 50 for a little over 2 years now, i bought it origionally for getting to school without having to wait for the bus and i've never regretted it. The bike is very very reliable, it starts in all weather and usually after one press on the starter. It's easy to ride for a beginner and fun to drive as a more experienced user of mopeds. I've had a couple of minor problems with it - one being that the speedo wire drops out sometimes and therefore no longer displays any speed - this is an easy fix that requires popping off a cover and slipping the wire back onto the "dash board". The other problem is that the front light wiring is somewhat unreliable. It either blows bulbs unexpectedly or just shows the "full beam" light on the dash but doesnt actually lightup at all. I've had it in the shop a few times about this problem but noone knows what it's about. It's only happened once or twice in the two years so not really a big deal.
Generally, this is a very nice bike, good value for money and very fuel efficient.
