Hilbert's vehicles


#1

This is my Jinan Qingqi QM50QT-6 or Digita50 Euro4, crazy how the same vehicle has many names.


The paintjob adds 10hp

I paid 1250€ in dealership for it and it has 1 year warranty, once the warranty is over it’s going to be sold. If this thing lasts a year it’s a miracle.

I like to call it chinese shit moped because it’s always broken and also needs a shit ton of oil. It has a 49cc engine. 5,5l fuel tank and I need to refuel it once every 65km. It goes whopping 40km/h (25mph) although it’s supposed to go 45km/h (about 30mph).


#2

you have bought a two-stroke moped

it drinking oil is to be expected


#3

No it’s 4-stroke.


#4

huh… i stand corrected then


#5

Got bored and googled it. Came across this bit of absolute poetry from the manual regarding the oil:

Homeless people: Can’t find any food? Just eat some better food.


#7


It makes fun sound when the plastic scrapes on every right turn.

White stripes. right?


#8

Today I met angry van driver.

Van Driver: “There’s plastic scraping the ground on your moped”
Me: “Fuck you”


So, I fixed it.
Here’s before and after photos.

Fixed it for ya


#10

As the winter is coming and I couldn’t find warm place for my chineseshitmoped to stay in, I am selling it. I was going to sell it after winter but this became better option.

It’s currently listed for 800€. Fair price for scooter that has been used for less than a year and is mechanically in good condition.


#11

For some reason (wonder why) no one was willing to pay 800€ for a shitty scooter. So, I took it for a ride, hit a cyclist, and broke the left mirror.

Since the scooter started making weird noises, I decided to sell it.

Sold to some nice guy for 150€.


#13

I’m a simple man, I see scooter that I like, I buy it.

And now I own 2009 Yamaha Neos. Only 600€, driven 14k km.

Compared to my old scooter, it’s a huge upgrade, even though it is older. This one has

  • Smoother (and faster) acceleration
  • Higher top speed (52 km/h)
  • Transmission shifts more smoothly
  • Better suspension
  • More comfortable seat, and I also have more legroom
  • Easier to steer at low speeds
  • Pretty damn nice digital speedometer:

But,

  • Horn doesn’t work
  • It’s scary to steer at high speeds
  • And the speedometer clock is 10 minutes ahead

And that pretty much sums up my experience based on ~50km of driving


#14

Since the plastic was all faded and gray, I decided to clean it with a bit of canola oil.

Looks almost like new now


#15

Inflation or depreciation?


#16

It would be more interesting if the scooter was electric, not gasoline.


#17

That’s very good idea, however all the electric scooters in my budget had range of ~50km, which is not enough for my commute.


#18

I can easily agree with that. Your previous one was badly built, and felt like it.
