1982 Popgal (MS50E)
(1982 / Production Model)
This 50cc model was developed in response to the growth in the number of unmarried women in the female user category that had primarily focused on housewives. It had many features targeting younger women like its sporty, fashionable design, an engine with an electric starter, a 2-speed automatic transmission and a shaft drive to prevent oil stains. Its advertisements that were done in a tie-up with a cosmetics company also drew attention.
