Welcome from Vancouver!
I have an 05 C50 and it is FI
The S50 is a different bike altogether so I can't comment on it.
I will say I live in an area with a pretty temperate climate and I never have any real troubles starting my bike.

Ride safe!

Welcome from Alabama.
I always allow my 09 c50 to warm for 2-5 minutes. The FI makes this bike excellent for mid-range excapes. Fuel mileage slurps when over 654 mph.

Welcome from L.A., CA. I have the carb version, the Volusia. No issues with the carbs, engine warming up, etc. But I live in a warm, dry climate - your results may vary.

Greetings from CO. Sorry but I don't have any knowledge on the S50's, though I'm betting there are plenty of people here that do.
