The frame of the Quick 50 was developed from the frame previously used in the NSU Quickly TT. The engine differed from the Quickly engine in stroke, displacement, and compression ratio, and delivered power through a four-speed transmission.
The Quick 50 engine did not have pedals. As a result, the Quick 50 was not considered to be a moped in countries whose legal definition of a moped included the presence of pedals, as Germany's did.

As the Quickly-N-23 was in effect a re-working of earlier moped models, the 45mph four-speed Quick 50 was NSU’s last new motorcycle design. It was also the last motorised two-wheeler built by NSU and, when the final Quick 50 rolled off the production line, NSU had built 1,121,067 Quicklys and derivatives.

Seen as a development of the Quickly, this was not true, as the Quick 50 has a completely new engine unit with 4 speed box and kick-start.
