Uncompromising sporting look with heavy references to the world of racing, Aprilia SR 50 R marries the technical and the aesthetic: its gutsy style inspired by its bigger Aprilia sisters is a real head turner.
The tapered shield, the dual headlamp, the central air intake, the aerodynamic tail fairing with a rear headlight and built-in indicator lights, all emphasise its affinity to the Aprilia sports bike family. The new colours, Racing Black, Fluo Red and Racing White are aggressive and lively, with the right touch of style for a unique scooter.
Engine: Cutting-edge technology
The brilliant 50-cc two-stroke Hi-Per2 Pro single-cylinder liquid cooled engine remains at the top of the category for drive and acceleration and also gains Euro 4 certification thanks to its electronically-operated carburettor – with dedicated control unit – an optimised cylinder diagram and the characteristic inverted “Snakebite” exhaust now with double catalyser and double secondary air system.
Frame: Maximum riding precision
The high tensile steel frame ensures optimum weight distribution, with more load over the front end than on an average scooter. The results of this are levels of feedback from the front wheel typical of a motorbike, and enhanced chassis performance, for more effective and safer riding. The brake system, with two 190 mm disc brakes and the 13″ wheels with 130/60 low-profile tyres – offer the very best road holding and grip.
Ergonomics and equipment, simply unbeatable
The riding position is optimised for total control while comfort is provided by the contoured saddle. The helmet compartment, which can accommodate a full-face helmet, is supplemented by yet another compartment with a 1-litre capacity under the lug. The standard equipment for the Aprilia SR 50 R includes a highly advanced active matrix instrument panel. Much more than just a regular instrument panel, it is a fully fledged terminal communicating with the engine control unit and providing the rider with an incredible quantity of information. The generous standard equipment is completed by dual head lamps, motorcycle type switchgear, an electronic transponder and a dynamic front air intake.
