The Suzuki TS50X is an air-cooled, 49 cc (3.0 cu in), single-cylinder, two-stroke engined, trial style moped manufactured by Suzuki from 1984 to 2000. It had a five-speed manual gearbox and complied with the United Kingdom requirements of the time to be classified as a moped. Electrics were 12 volt[1] and capacitor discharge electronic ignition was used.[2] The machine utilised Suzuki's own CCI oil pump delivery system, avoiding the need to pre-mix two-stroke engine oil.[3]

The duplex cradle type frame, is made of welded tubular steel with a steel box-section swingarm.[4] Front suspension is conventional coil-sprung telescopic, but the rear has Suzuki's "Full-floater" type where the suspension is connected to the frame by a linkage, which allows spring rates to increase in response to wheel travel.[4]
