Super late model Derbi Variant with the Start 5 engine. Not sure what that means? Imagine the peak of moped technology and this is it. Modern scooter style variator setup with chain final drive. 

If you've been to a Swoops rally in the past 5 years, you've probably been dusted by this bike. It was assembled and tuned by the Swoops' own Bobby Costello. Bobby has been blasting everyone at rallies since the beginning. 

This bike is very tastefully upgraded for a balance of performance and longevity.  It is equipped with an Airsal/Metra 43.5mm 65cc cylinder kit, Metrakit intake paired with a Dellorto 16.16 SHA, and a new generation Metrakit Big Muff exhaust. This Derbi makes very useful power. It can tackle any hill and carry its rider quickly into the mid 50s. It is also capable of easily carrying a passenger. 

This Variant only has 317 km on the odometer. Cosmetically it is in exceptional shape with only a couple tiny marks in the paint. The original keys were misplaced sometime before we received it but you can open the seat with any sturdy key or flat blade screwdriver. The oil injection has been removed so there is no need for a key to open the reservoir. The headlight is attached using rubber fasteners. These are starting to show their age which is very common on these models. Still, you couldn't expect to find a prettier Variant like this in the States.
