2008 Aprilia SportCity Review

Sporty and aggressive, never guess the SportCity was affordable!

What was Aprilia when they came up the SportCity 250? I’m to take a guess; it was probably like how can we add some … to our current, rather stuffy Go ahead, go to their site and at what they’ve got. the punchy SR50 and the ornately Mojito they’ve got the Scarabeo weighing in at 100, 200 and 500cc’s. a one-word description, all three can be summed up as Business.

They all beg the to sit up with a proper posture, all have rather calm about them with single headlight and badged They come in a variety of colors, all except for that making Red one. If you were for a FUN scooter, you’d likely right past a large of the Aprilia line-up, that is you saw the SportCity 250.

Still quite business a color and seating position the SportCity’s design is anything but as a matter of fact I would say closer to breathtaking! The front end is giving oncoming traffic a look as it comes around the The 15-inch wheels are big and substantial, the rider a high degree of in the turns and on less than terrain.

I took her from San California to Point Dume and hitting the curvy canyon along the way.

The large wheels allowed the to grab hold of Mulholland’s with a high degree of hugging each curve confidence and aggression usually for larger, sportier motorcycles. The had no issues keeping up with the of Guzzis on the turns, though the were a different story. did you expect from a petrol-tottling engine? It couldn’t possibly up with the 1100ccs of raw power bikes produce.

Even I managed to touch 80 mph, me to keep them in my sights the next roadside police car their jets for a bit.

Now back to that engine. The is driven by a 22.5 hp, electronic injected, 244.29cc, horizontal cylinder, 4-…, forced 4-valve head with camshaft *gasp*. What that mean?

It means the SportCity has no problem carrying my body from 0 to 50 mph in under 10 and up to 60 mph in 14, beating out the 21.7 hp 250cc Vespa GTV I by nearly 2 seconds. In places California where they lane-filtering (filtering forward in traffic especially at traffic where 2-wheelers have an acceleration advantage), the SportCity shows its colors; leaving 4 cars in the proverbial dust.

The SportCity 250 is rated with a top of 79.5, though mine 80 downhill, just enough for short jaunts on most highways. yes, even 405. Best of all, in times when $4-5/gal gas is scarred into the memory is the 61 mpg fuel efficiency; that and a tank capacity means than 160 miles per fill up!

power is provided courtesy of triple disc braking At times it felt a bit touchy, but at no did it feel insufficient. In the front got Twin 260mm stainless discs under the grip of piston floating calipers and a stainless steel disc in the with a single piston

I’m certain I could Stop on a dime with practice.

One of the benefits of owning a is storage space. On a standard you’ve got engine under seat, but on a scooter like the you’ve got room to keep full-face helmet safe and as well as whatever else you can inside your helmet. I kept my video and still there on my ride.

If that’s not there’s also a locking compartment built into the leg to give you a place to keep papers, glasses and gps safe as as a place to stow and even your cell phone. Italians think of everything. included above the leg shield is a standard grocery bag hook on most every proper

If you need even more you can strap your briefcase the luggage rack or add a top case Aprilia. All that space the SportCity a great commuter
