Tomos mopeds/mopeds are built in different types and versions. In this blog we will look at the Euro 1 and Euro 2 models. The 2 models both have distinctive features and visible differences. It is important that you know which Tomos model belongs to which category. This is because some parts may be different.
- The first difference between Euro 1 and Euro 2 is the attachment point of the exhaust to the frame. With a Euro 1, the attachment to the frame is done with 1 screw. On a Euro 2 this is possible with 2 screws. An adapter plate is available in the shop so that both exhaust systems can be mounted on the Euro 2 (10343). However, an original exhaust from a Euro 2 will not fit on a Euro 1 with an adapter plate. This is because the footrests of the Euro 2 are lower than those of the Euro 1. A faster exhaust will fit, however, because its manifold has a different shape. In the webshop, most exhaust systems indicate which models they are suitable for.
- On an A52 engine block with an A55 cylinder (we will deal with this engine block later), the angle of the exhaust manifold is different. So the A3/A35 exhaust does not fit on this one.
- The second difference is that the footrests on a Euro 2 model are lower than on a Euro 1 model. A lower position of the footrest allows the exhaust to hit the footrest earlier. In the web shop, most exhausts state whether they fit a Euro 1 or Euro 2 moped. Check this carefully, because it really does make a difference.
- The third difference is that the Euro 1 model has a front fork of the old model. It is a front fork that does not contain oil, the suspension system works via plastic bushings. The Euro 2 model has a hydraulic front fork. This means that the front fork contains oil, this is an improved version. The headsets of both front forks are identical. The headset is therefore used for many years.
