Rubber on wheels has a diameter of seventeen inches.
The fuel tank is located on the frame in front of the seat,as in the rest of the mopeds. Its capacity is five liters. Maybe it's not too much. But this amount of fuel will be enough to drive a few hundred kilometers, sitting on the moped "Zodiac." Its engine "eats" less than two liters per hundred kilometers.

"Zodiac" - a moped, little studied by simpleusers. There are not so many reviews about him. By itself, it's not bad. Develops speeds up to seventy kilometers per hour. It is more difficult to disperse it. True, if you go uphill, you need to lower the transmission. In this regard, he is worse than the same "Alpha". A lot of criticism is both for the work of the engine, and for the assembly of the design itself. The battery is weak, it is often changed. Leave a lot to be desired and welded seams. They are not treated with protective agents and quickly rust.
The new moped "Zodiac" costs about 30-35 thousand rubles. At this cost, it can not be ideal in all respects.
