I notice on the newest Buddy 50's (no other Buddy models in stock now at local dealer) that they appear to be coming in now with alloy wheels instead of the stamped steel wheels like they used to have.

Anyone else notice this or have info on it?

Genuine Buddy 125

I would be great if the new alloys fit my Buddy 125. I live near the salt water and we have to do a lot of corrosion control on the steel wheels.

I've gotta assume the new alloy wheels have the same bolt pattern, etc.

I gather the change was due to supplier availability.

They alloys really looked nice too!

After checking out Genuine's website, it looks like all Buddy models (including the Kick) have alloys for 2019.

The Venture 50, too. It says so in the descriptive text next to the photo on the Genuine site.
