Putting the Fun back in Functional

California, May 17, 2001

We must be old over here at MO. Or maybe just becoming excessively lately, what with gas sneaking ever closer to the big mark.

Maybe it’s our though. Instead of wasting our collective youth on race big trucks and chasing some large women, our time have been better if we’d hugged a few more and saved a few more lizards. then we wouldn’t be looking so at all these scooters that are down the pipeline lately.

But, then again, because something gets gas mileage and looks like a doesn’t mean it is a scooter. Or it? Aprilia bills its Scarabeo 150 as a with an automatic transmission and the of a scooter.

So we had to find out if Aprilia was especially after becoming nuts since falling for zippy little Vino a back.

And that Italian that made Yamaha PR so proud? The Scarabeo is Italian. So, we had to get a full dose of what the country had to offer.

So what place to start than the Scarabeo 150?

what sets the Scarabeo from normal scooters, and blurs the scooter/motorcycle line are its two wheels. The 100/80 front rides on a 2.5 x 16 inch rim and is separated the rest of the bike via 35 mm conventional with 110 mm of travel. The 130/80 tire snuggles its beads a 3 x16 inch rim that is affixed to the by way of a dual sided-swingarm.

Both rims are of the five-spoke variety. Hardly scooter these wheels allow the to have the smooth handling of a size bike, while maintaining its scooter edge.

The implements a preload-adjustable mono-shock and has 110 mm of suspension travel, just the front. The left arm (as viewed the back of the bike) houses the and transmission, while the right is there for additional support and some stuff.

To accommodate requests, Aprilia offers hard bags and a different top The side bags offer 20 of cargo capacity while the larger top box will be capable of two full face helmets. As is, the lockable top box offers 29 liters of and is large enough for one full helmet.
