APRILIA SCARABEO 50 / 100 / 150 / 200 500

The story of Scarabeo series of scooters many models and stretches way to 1993 in Milan when the example was unveiled. The original (or ‘Scabby’ & ‘Beo’ as are sometimes referred to by enthusiasts) was the Scarabeo 150.

The general concept was conceived as way to take the of a scooter and blend them the larger wheels of a motorbike thus making a scooter handles better on rough and at higher speeds. This of a large wheeled scooters has especially popular in Europe, Honda’s large wheeled SH are top sellers and Aprilia’s Scarabeo enjoy a great deal of fan

These scooters have sold starting in 1999 in the USA and in Canada. The end arrived in 2010 in while the Scarabeo series on sale in the USA until 2013.

After quite a few years in the European market, brought the Scarabeo to the USA for 1999 as of Aprilia’s American debut. 1999, the Scarabeo has been in North America in a wide of sizes including 50cc, 150cc, 200cc, 250cc and

Aprilia’s smallest Scarabeo, the 50cc model, comprised one of Aprilia’s 1999 two scooter with the SR50 being the other half. The smallest (above right) was joined by the 150 for 2001 in the USA. The larger 500 rounded out Aprilia’s Scarabeo in the USA when it was added for 2004.

The mid-sized Scarabeo 250 joined existing models briefly for but didn’t last long as overhauled their offerings the year.

2007 saw Aprilia things, as they replaced the 50 and 150 with the new generation of Scarabeo 100 which was designed to be as compact as the while nearly as powerful as the The 250cc was dropped for 2007, but added their new Scarabeo 200 for bringing their lineup to the 200 and 500 models.

A 50cc option a short return for 2009, Aprilia released a smaller version of the newer 100cc style. This new Scarabeo 50 was in 2-… (“50 Street) or (“50 4T”) motor 2010 saw Aprilia drop the new model and move back to just the 100, 200 and 500 models, is how their lineup remained being unilaterally dropped 2013.

The situation up in Canada has a bit simpler thankfully, with offering the Scarabeo 150 for their debut, and then switching to the Scarabeo 50 every year 2004 to 2009 (except when they didn’t any). The 2004 — Scarabeo 50’s were the generation 2-… models, the 2007 — 2009 were the newer design a 4-… mill. Joining the 50 in showrooms was the Scarabeo 500 for 2004 2005 and the Scarabeo 200 for 2007 to

Design

All models of Scarabeo use 16” rims (except the version (right) which has a rear rim). Large by standards, these rims superior handling and performance bumps compared to smaller scooters. Traditionally, scooters used 8-12” rims. The with these larger is the reduced underseat storage which is intruded into by the rear wheel.

Aprilia to make up for this by equipping a rack that is designed for an top case which can be purchased Aprilia or an aftermarket vendor. easing the lack of underseat is a locking glovebox which is an handy inclusion.

Most scooters also come with some sort of The Scarabeo 50 gets nothing, the 100 gets a small windscreen, the 200 in red) gets a moderate shield and the 500 gets the full wind screen treatment.

Motors

A number of engines been used in the Scarabeo over the many generations and The original Scarabeo was the 150 and it was powered by a engine sourced from

Later on, Aprilia developed a with Piaggio (well Piaggio ended up purchasing Accordingly, most Scarabeo’s the original 150 have used engines. Piaggio’s LEADER can be found in the 100cc and 200cc This motor is shared Piaggio scooters like the Fly 150 and LX 150.

The larger Scarabeo 250 Piaggio’s QUASAR motor, can be found in modern 250-300cc scooters (ie. Vespa GTS ).

The Scarabeo 50 (pre-2007) was a 2-… using Piaggio’s Hi-PER2 While regular and high (“DiTech”) versions were overseas, North American’s seemingly offered only the performance variant. Regular used a Hi-PER2 engine a carburetor and 9.9:1 compression, the high performance DiTech gained fuel injection, disc brake and 12.5:1

The DiTech version of this is shared with Aprilia’s SR50 DiTech model.

The generation of Scarabeo 50 sold in for 2007 — 2009, and for only in the USA. In Canada, the motor option was Piaggio’s Hi-PER4 motor. In the USA a 2-… 50 Street” version was sold the regular 4-… model. The Street version utilized a spec version of Piaggio’s motor, which means it had a lower compression and a rear brake.

These motors shared with other machines of this era including the Fly 50. LT50 and modern 50cc .

The largest Scarabeo, the 500, a 460cc Piaggio MASTER putting out 39 hp. This motor was used in Aprilia’s Atlantic 500 and X9 500.

Comparison

Kymco’s People S and People GT lines of are the most direct competitors to the scooters. Honda also competed in the large wheeled market in North America their 2010 SH150i, but were slow and that was dropped after one year.

the SH150i and Aprilia scooters the latest technology in a very package. The Kymco People and S scooters use older motors don’t yield quite as power, but the prices are certainly The newer People GT from is a more technologically endowed fuel injection and 4-valves.

One other model worth in Piaggio’s LT 50 and LT 150 scooters, which a brief appearance in the USA market. The LT are quite uncommon and quirky, their Vespa ET meets wheels styling, but they are built scooters that appeal to some.

Overall, American’s don’t seem to large wheeled scooters as as Europeans do. Large wheeled are the top sellers in Europe, while a few have been offered to America. The Scarabeo has easily the best selling large scooter in the USA and Canada, partly due to its design and partly because no manufacturer has been selling wheeled scooters for as many

The Scarabeo scooters and Kymco GT will appeal to buyers for a higher end large wheeled while the Kymco People and S are aimed at lower budget
