When the highest level of technology meets personality beyond comparison, the result is an Aprilia scooter. Aprilia has always explored new roads, with vehicles that may seem to be bold adventures into the world of design, but which inevitably are destined to create new market segments. The Mojito is one of these.
A unique scooter with a style of its own and extremely easy to ride. Unmistakable at a glance, with a unique design and character, and a vast range of finishes compared to other offers, the Aprilia Mojito is the perfect means of transport for those who want to stand out from the crowd on the city streets.
The Mojito is immediately recognizable as a vehicle in a class of its own, with excellent characteristics of urban mobility in a truly one-of-a-kind style.
It’s a scooter whose classic lines will never age with time. Inspired by the world of cruisers, its design is characterised by simple and elegant lines, high-quality paintwork and elegant chrome.
The “naked” handlebars, in true custom style are another distinctive characteristic of this classic scooter which has always been very popular on the European market.
Now, the Aprilia Mojito has been revamped both in its look and equipment, while remaining faithful to the unmistakable style and unbeatable practical qualities. New materials, even more attention to detail with great practicality thanks to the flat footboard in a scooter which is extremely easy to ride, also because it has the lowest seat in its category, making it perfect also for people who are approaching the world of two-wheelers for the very first time.
Available in two cylinder capacities, to meet any kind of mobility requirements, whether urban or suburban.
In brief, these are the latest innovations for the new Mojito:
- New Euro 3 125cc engine
- New trim on the leg shield
- New integrated, painted pillion handle
- White indicators
- Painted rear of leg shield
- New chrome lateral transfers
- New “reptile skin” effect seat
It is certainly no easy matter to take the lead in a class as fiercely competitive as the medium powered naked class. A class where the battle is not just about technology and performance, but also design, component rationality and riding ease and pleasure, elements which are not always compatible and are particularly demanding for designers and engineers.
Aprilia has picked up this challenge and interpreted it by applying its own successful philosophy to a completely new design, destined to set new standards for years to come. A bike both strongly aggressive and at the same time clean-cut and elegant, in perfect Aprilia style. A bike at the top of its class for its sporty personality, designed on the basis of the know-how of a company which has to date won 250 world championship victories.
The pride of all Aprilia bikes, refined mechanics and a top class chassis, are once again the key to the success of the Shiver 750.
The Aprilia Shiver 750 is the naked everyone was waiting for. A design able to satisfy the disparate needs of those buying this type of bike. From everyday use to a trip along mountain passes or use on the racetrack, the Aprilia Shiver 750 is completely at home in any situation, guaranteeing pure riding pleasure at all times.
Light, agile and powerful, it has a new generation engine and the most advanced technical features in its class. The brand new 90° V2 produced entirely in-house by Aprilia is extremely compact. Above all, thanks to the advanced electronic management, it can deliver a level of power comparable to four cylinder engines in the same class, but with much more favourable torque at low revs for an efficient and pleasing ride even on everyday routes. True to the Aprilia tradition, the chassis simply has no rivals in its class. The innovative mixed trellis/aluminium frame provides standard setting rigidity. All this makes the bike extremely compact, perfect even for the beginner.
With a dry weight of just 189 kg, the lightness of the Aprilia Shiver 750 also satisfies the most canny motorcyclist. Its manoeuvrability and engine performance enable the bike to accompany its owner from his first few metres on two wheels up to his complete motorcycling maturity.
The main characteristics of the Aprilia Shiver 750 are:
• 90° V2 engine with four valves per cylinder, double overhead camshaft and liquid cooling
• Ride-by-Wire technology for electronic control of the throttle bodies
• Electronic fuel injection with latest generation injectors
• Mixed gear and chain valve timing
• Three way catalytic converter on the exhaust, with Lambda oxygen sensor
• Modular trellis/aluminium frame for high torsional rigidity
• Aluminium swingarm with reinforcement truss and lateral shock absorber
• 43 mm upside down fork
• Racing brakes with radial caliper at front
Aprilia has always been the undisputed leader in 125 cc supersports, a market segment in which Aprilia has pioneered new concepts and advanced solutions, and developed technology that others have struggled to follow. Like all Aprilia motorcycles, the RS 125 has benefited from the sophisticated technology that has been developed over years of success in GP racing, and quickly transferred into production. Over the years, the RS 125 has forged a reputation as the standard setter for sports 125’s. Sales success has come naturally too, with the RS 125 topping the sales tables on major European markets. The RS 125 is the inevitable choice of riders entering Sport Production racing. And rightly so, because when the competition gets tough, there is simply no other bike like the Aprilia RS 125. The Aprilia RS 125 offers young riders the best in components and equipment, and a concentration of technical refinements worthy of a flagship supersport.
The following are just some of the main features of the Aprilia RS 125:
• tried and tested yet extremely sophisticated Rotax two stroke engine;
• super-rigid aluminium frame and swingarm derived from Aprilia’s vast GP experience;
• upside down fork;
• front brake with radial caliper and four opposed pistons;
• RSV 1000 R style fairing, windshield and tail;
• RSV Factory style, crossed spoke wheels;
• analog/digital instrument panel with multi-functional computer;
• RSV Factory style, forged steering yoke;
• oval section racing silencer with riveted end plates;
With its original design, the Aprilia Sportcity revolutionized our concept of high wheel scooters from the day it was first presented. Thanks to 15 inch wheels, generous tires, sporty engines and a superbly rigid frame, the Sportcity stood out immediately for its ability to combine the comfort of a large wheel scooter with the power and handling of a sports scooter to offer a dynamic and exciting solution to the problems of urban mobility. The Sportcity proved an instant winner and went on to become one of Aprilia’s best selling scooters.
The 2009 model maintains the technical solutions that made the Sportcity a best seller, but is more versatile and elegant than ever. Larger dimensions and a superior finish give the 2009 Sportcity an unrivalled price to content ratio. The new Sportcity is not merely restyled but completely renewed, so much so that its third generation is assuming a new name to emphasize the extent of the innovation.
The Aprilia Sportcity 250 is made to satisfy all possible needs in modern urban mobility. Better finished and more elegant than ever, the new Sportcity features a design inspired by dynamism and advanced technology. Its impressive characteristics make it the perfect choice for riders seeking a comfortable, safe and fast scooter that can nip easily through traffic and requires only minimum running costs.
The Sportcity 250 performs well as a medium range commuter, providing a more global mobility solution. The Sportcity simply cannot be defined as a mere “means of transport”. Instead, it represents for the urban commuter a scooter with an unmistakable sporting image and with the performance and handling of a true Aprilia.
The result of brilliant intuition by Aprilia, Scarabeo has withstood the test of time by adapting to change and incorporating the latest technology. Over the years Scarabeo has grown in engine size, with new models introduced to satisfy diverging needs. Deep down, however, Scarabeo remains faithful to the original concept behind its amazing success. In brief, Scarabeo remains a trend-setter. Over 750,000 Scarabeo have been sold since 1993, to tame inner city traffic, dominate urban ring roads and carry their riders with natural elegance and unmistakable style.
“Scarabeo offers the intelligent and cultured scooter rider a new class of urban scooter, combining today’s state-of-the-art technology with a design capable of defying the passage of time.”(From the Scarabeo launch at the Milan Exhibition in 1993)
Scarabeo’s harmonious shape, simple flowing lines, and reassuringly smooth surfaces are so unmistakable that there is almost no need to apply the Aprilia name to it. Scarabeo’s superior finish, and the refinement of every last detail are instantly recognisable at first glance or feel. A Scarabeo is simply a Scarabeo, unique and unmistakable. Distinctive elegance, impressive comfort, plus advanced performance and safety give Scarabeo across-the-board appeal. Scarabeo is loved by teenagers, lady riders, students and managers – in fact anybody who wants a scooter of distinction and class. Scarabeo is all this and more. It sets trends, not follows them. Like all true classics, Scarabeo is an object of cult design, and has evolved without losing its identity. Scarabeo is the unquestioned symbol of elegance on two wheels. One glance is all you need to recognize Scarabeo anywhere. And you only need to ride it once to appreciate its dynamic Aprilia-style handling. Over the years Scarabeo has developed a chameleon-like ability to change its skin, and to evolve along with the changing needs of the market. The emphasis today is on practical mobility: riders want scooters that are small outside but big inside, able to nip through congested city centres. That is why the smallest over-50 cc Scarabeo has evolved once more, becoming more compact but without losing any of its unique identity. The new 200 has returned to the design roots of Scarabeo, combining elegance with utility and shunning the superfluous. The new Scarabeo 200 satisfies all the needs of modern mobility, and adds a generous touch of class and style to the practicality and performance that has always set Scarabeo apart. Typical Italian style once again points the way for others to follow: Scarabeo’s refined build quality simply defies imitation by other scooters. Advanced technology renders Scarabeo unique too. A generous under-seat storage compartment, large enough to hold an Aprilia jet helmet, leaves the competition struggling. The 200 might be the entry level model to the over-50 cc Scarabeo range, but its deluxe finish and amazing quality to price ratio make it more than unique.
“Conceived to defy the pressures of the market, designed with a rigorous attention to detail, destined for a public with the ability to choose for themselves, and characterized by a design that is ‘different’ by definition, Scarabeo is a new starting point for the motorcycle industry, the first in a series of machines made to appeal not only today but tomorrow and in the long term too.”(From the Scarabeo launch at the Milan Exhibition in 1993)
The concept that revolutionised the world of Supermoto has now engendered the Aprilia Dorsoduro 750. This unique, elite motorcycle applies all of Aprilia’s vast racing experience to just one mission: the offer of pure riding enjoyment. 92 HP and exclusive Tri-Map ride-by-wire technology mean that the lightweight and powerful Dorsoduro 750 can satisfy even the most expert riders in search of a state-of-the-art motorcycle.
Aprilia has certainly made its mark since entering the world of supermotard racing: 4 world titles since 2004 clearly demonstrate the superiority of the Aprilia off-road concept. Now Aprilia has taken its success story one step further with the Aprilia Dorsoduro 750, the machine that sets completely new standards for the road-going supermotard market. The Dorsoduro is Aprilia’s first 750 cc supermotard, with a level of performance and equipment that places it in direct competition with far bigger machines. Unlike its more expensive rivals, however, the Dorsoduro gives you an unbeatable combination of performance and equipment for its price. The Aprilia Dorsoduro is an ideal motorcycle for advanced riders in search of total performance. But thanks to its 750 cc engine, advanced electronic engine management system and selectable triple mapping, it also adapts perfectly to the needs of less experienced riders, and represents an intelligent access to the world of fun motorcycling. The Dorsoduro is made for pure enjoyment, and creates a perfect symbiosis between man and machine, especially when ridden solo. The Aprilia Dorsoduro 750 has been developed in close collaboration with Aprilia Racing (the department of Aprilia responsible for thirty-seven world titles in all, and five in 2007 alone, including four in Moto GP’s 125 and 250 cc classes and one in the Supermotard World Championship). The result is a bike that combines the best of supersport and supermoto racing technology. The Aprilia Dorsoduro gives you absolute riding pleasure and fun. A distillation of performance and technology, the Dorsoduro is a special, extreme, and elite motorcycle, capable of elevating its rider to motorcycling excellence.
The lightweight, agile, and powerful Dorsoduro is driven by a new generation of engine incorporating the most advanced technical solutions found on any bike of its kind. Thanks to advanced electronic engine management, Aprilia’s compact 90° V twin delivers superb performance, well beyond the reach of its rivals. Specific power is 122.6 HP/litre and maximum torque is 82 Nm at only 4,500 rpm.
As you would expect from Aprilia, the chassis is unique in the supermotard segment. Having achieved amazing results on the super-specialist SXV, Aprilia’s mixed trellis and aluminium frame is now one of the most distinctive features of the Dorsoduro, giving it the sort of directional control, responsiveness and precision the competition cannot hope to achieve.
Despite its essential design, the Aprilia Dorsoduro boasts the highest level of components, technical equipment and finish. Four piston radial calipers, wave discs, a hydraulic wet clutch, adjustable front and rear suspension, Tri-Map ride-by-wire engine management and a Matrix instrument display with on-board computer are just some of the many items that make the Dorsoduro unique.
Let’s look at the features of the Aprilia Dorsoduro 750 in greater detail:
• 90° V twin engine with four-valve heads, double overhead cam and liquid cooling
• Tri-Map second generation ride-by-wire technology
• Electronic fuel injection with the latest generation injectors
