Aprilia that it was time to make a in the 50cc enduro and supermoto so it used all the experience gained by developing the impressive RX 125/SX125 as as the previous RX50/SX50 generations and it two beautifully-styled off-roaders destined to and not only.

The smallest off-road in Aprilia’s lineup stand out as the motorcycles for riders willing to riding off and on the road, while needing a practical and good motorcycle for those very daily trips.

Of course, the new had to be great performers so their fitted them with the advanced features, which inspired from bigger The result is an impressive looking that relies on its performance in to be not just another starter but a true companion for many to come.


Aprilia producing first the RX 50 in the early (1992, to be more precise) and it became one of the most beloved bikes that Europe had to Aprilia proved that it had sorted out from the very year as this is one motorcycle started as a motocrosser and afterwards got a mirrors and permission to hit the streets. The that we see today is based on the same bike that carried you when you were a kid and it is now son’s time to live up to first riding experience.

Things change, but only in a way when it comes to motorcycle at Aprilia and European attention to While the 50cc single two-… engine powered the all this time, styling significantly resulting in a more looking motorcycle. After this was a bike that have to be appreciated by the rider’s on Japanese dual purpose

And it did. It did it so good that in Aprilia introduced the all-new SX 50 as a derivation from the long enduro sibling.


does deliver dual motorcycles with great but the think is that those friends are placed on four-… displacing at least 200-250cc. the whole magic of the RX and SX 50. They a rider to the trails right the first day of riding and it doesn’t you to have a bit of experience from mini bikes.

The old continent offer any alternatives either so all we to do is to appreciate the Italian bikes for unique also, not just bikes that entered the for a piece of the cake. Both to master their category by but would you expect thinks to any other way if a form of competition appear? Yes, that’s I thought so.


Styling is on that of the RXV and SXV. entirely machines that practically the tone in terms of styling for enduros and supermotos, but also Aprilia models, so if we’ll be a new 50cc enduro, there be no doubt which bike was the source concerning design

Redesigned for 2009, the Aprilia RX 50 and SX 50 are unmistakable thanks to the levels of and the uniqueness that characterize the The new headlights now look less odd and fit in the overall scenario, making the look stylish in their Just like on those models, the housing now blends in the front fender, both looking angry, almost a short preview of what’s to come once on their

Did I mention the mirrors? Sorry, Just on the left side.

The red fender is pretty high perfect for letting the Marzocchi to do their job spotless. Looking the right angle, the side appear like boomerangs. The appearance is continued all the way to the bike’s end where the passenger side of the blends perfectly in with lines.

The 21” front and 18” rear one are made out of for lightness and excellent reliability no the riding conditions.

2009 brings these cooler schemes.

Test Drive

RX 50

What I immediately noticed firing up the engine and giving a go on the new RX 50 was the engine is truly effective and to deal with virtually situation that a rider encounter while discovering the and his great, hidden passion for along the way. Backing up the performance thumper is a versatile In fact, the combination between two units is what makes the RX 50 so and well balanced.

The two … cylinder is liquid-cooled and features reed valve induction. The is made out of light alloy, into an engine that only 15 kg. It is amazing how that of power can be obtained while the weight so down.

It is very to get used to the RX as the bike’s is very friendly, but this is no boring The Italian manufacturer made that once the rider a handful of its throttle it will forget the displacement of the engine powers this baby. I was by how the thumper pulls easily down low and all the way through its rev range, the rider promising not to underestimate a 50 cc ever again.

The very of the bike’s capabilities, especially power delivery, are also the of a six speed gearbox that effectively and precisely, just how a rider needs.

On last year’s model, made sure that the frame would be the single that connects the steering and the swingarm pivot and it feels as you go the trails. Maneuvering the bike is with complete ease, no the speed of which we’re and passing above obstacles is a piece of cake on the smallest RX.

The behavior is indeed implied by the but dealing with the rough are the Marzocchi fork at the front and the monoshock at the rear. Both satisfying wheel travel (195mm and 180mm), so this is how a innovative bike deals the tough terrain. It feels when making slalom tries, although I wouldn’t that to beginners.

The only that this bike to be absolutely great for teenagers was a set of brakes, which make presence felt out on the trails. we’re talking about two units and 300mm discs. is not heard of on a daily basis, is it? Not 50cc motorcycles are the subject of the

At the rear, things get back to as we encounter a 180 mm stainless steel Hitting the brakes on this is when reality hits you in the face as the stopping power is at the performance level (for the of course) and the low weight helps a

The 2009 Aprilia SX 50 brings same kind of riding on the streets (despite the fact the off-road model is street too) and even on the supermoto The bike is very light and feels natural and confidence allowing riders to wish to more and more time on its without being scared a

Although it only features a pair of wheels, the smallest SX is an introduction to the supermoto world. We this small beauty on the only to notice that it has get up and go to keep things interesting and enough for riders not to get bored at in the first two years or so.
