    Whats the best for commuting on?

    Runner 172 or Runner 180 with just a pipe?

    Just pondering as I think I'm going to get a Runner over the winter and give the NRG to the GF. I prefer the look of the old shape Runner but want the extra take off and cruising speed of a bigger engine over the NRG even if kitted.

    I dont know what model code is what, as some have 50cc style crappy forks and some have proper RWU motorcycle style ones - any clues??

    Cheers - Ben

    nothing to choose really reliability wise between a malossi 172 cylinder and a std 180cc cylinder.

    A stock 180 will be best, no need to put a pipe on it as they are quick enough in factory trim!

    Thanks for the input.

    I did think that a stock 180 would be reliable but would struggle to have a standard pipe on a bike so that would be a definate mod. Wasnt sure about the 172 as I knew it would probably be ported better than the 180 but did not know how much this would impact upon reliability.

    To be honest they are both really reliable, i wouldnt worry about that side of things about breaking down. A stock 180 would have less likely to been bodged by some back garden "mecahnics". I see you have a full liscence anyway so 180s registered as 180s are cheaper then 125s registered as 172s.
