This NOS-Injected Custom Scooter Is A Beautiful Bespoke Drag Racer

While the vast majority of the planet sees small-displacement scooters simply as an economical means of transportation, there’s a rare breed of enthusiasts dedicated to transforming these runners into purpose-built, highly-tuned race machines. From the reworked road-racing scooters of South East Asia to the heavily-modified off-road “Vespacross” machines, there’s a surprisingly active scooter modding community, though the bar has just been raised thanks to a drag racer build from German custom moto shop, ANX Prototypes.

Based on a 49cc two-stroke Piaggio NRG scooter, the build’s had the aft-half of the chassis lopped off and replaced with a bespoke unit. The engine’s been ported and treated to drilled and grilled covers, a Italkit ignition, Malossi Delta CVT clutch, Polini Evolution 70cc kit with bigger connecting rods and an upgraded crank, a Keihin 28mm flatslide carb, an adjustable Motoforce intake paired with a carbon fiber reed box, a Metrakit Prorace expansion chamber culminating in a carbon fiber muffler, and a bespoke NOS-injection system that can be tuned separately from the power plant. Tipping the scales at under 125lbs at the curb, the dragster now makes between 20-30hp, a substantial increase from the stocker’s 4hp. Other noteworthy elements on the scoot include a Kawasaki AR50 tank, a custom carbon fiber tail section secured via a trio of titanium fasteners, 13” racing slicks, and upside-down Honda Magna bars held a mountain-bike stem.
