50cc Fans Rejoice!
Do you like small-displacement machines but still like going fast? Do you like pushing your little bike to the edge? Well, then Nextar Consult, Inc. (NCI) has something for you. It’s a supercharger kit that’s designed for small displacement engines. The NCI kit is a small compressor that increases airflow into the engine. This influx of air inside the engine allows it to make more power.
The supercharger kit is a mechanical one so you won’t have to do a bunch of electronic hookups. The compressor is activated by pulleys from the motor itself. As you rev, the air going into the engine increases. According to MoreBikes, the NCI team has fitted one to a 50cc Honda Monkey. This helps the little bike hit 50 kph (roughly 31 mph) in 8.38 seconds. That may still sound slow as sin, but before the kit was installed this feat took 14.64 seconds.
I’d love to get my hands on a Honda Grom or Monkey and put this kit on it and see what happens. Those bikes are already wicked fun and adding this kit to it would only up the ante. The general 50cc kit costs $500 and the kit for the Monkey costs $700.
