For 2011, Italian brand Gilera has created a special edition version of its popular scooter, the Runner 50. This special series uses matt-finish black to enhance the fierce personality of the scooter and the same colour is used on other features such as the wheel rims and the passenger grab handles, whilst gold coloured finishes lend the scooter a supersport look: it has golden streamer graphics that decorate the saddle and fairing, the words Gilera and Runner in gold on the side panels, and gold coloured wheel rim borders.
The manufacturer says the powerful 50cc two-stroke engine turnes the model into a „traffic light burner”. The single-cylinder provides 4,5hp at 7250rpm and 4.6 Nm of torque at 6250rpm. The Runner 50 has a price tag of $2,500 in Europe.
