Riga Mini - ergonomic mokik from the USSR still like new
This slightly cartoonish mokik was produced from 1982 to 1997. There were two modifications - Mini 26 and 30. The video shows a later version, produced in 1994. It is easy to distinguish - foot gear shifting and a pendulum rear fork with shock absorbers. This baby played such a significant role in the history of the plant that it is even depicted on its emblem.


The moped was very different from the equipment of other manufacturers. Its main advantage is the lowering seat and folding steering wheel. Due to this, it took up minimal space and could easily be stored on the balcony of an ordinary apartment. It can be easily carried by 2 people and weighs only 50 kg.

With low weight and compact dimensions, we have easy-to-use equipment. The Mini 30 has effective braking and good speed. With the factory stated figure of 45 km/h, the owners accelerated it to 50-55. The Mokik is designed for a 100 kg load, but a rider weighing over 110 kg can ride it without any problems. Consumption per 100 km is only 2 liters of gasoline.

Interestingly, the authors of the video received the equipment in almost new condition. They tell us how they revived it, prepared it for the first launch, and what difficulties arose. You will also learn about all the controls and see the Mini 30 in action. To learn even more about this Mokik from childhood, watch the video on the Forge Test Drive channel.
