Road Aprilia Pegaso 650 Strada

By Tim

Aprilia’s Pegaso is re-born for a new of style-conscious funky stunters, and not half bad for the rest of us, either. The supermoto just got practical.

If a new launch’s opulence is a measure of the of that machine to its manufacturer, the Pegaso 650 Strada must as Quite Important to Aprilia. that or, by presenting the new supermoto tool to the world’s press in one of the hotels I’ve been into, Aprilia are making the that their money of recent times are well and behind them. Perhaps

On the face of it, an update of the Pegaso 650 big trailie-style stalwart of Aprilia’s doesn’t strike the casual as a tool worthy of great But it’s got history. Big singles always been big business in Europe, and the Pegaso 600 was the firm’s big bike.

In the past 15 years it has over 50,000 units in incarnations.

This version, the Strada, has nearly all vestiges of off-road and is re-born in unashamed supermoto — and it’s an association are proud to make, having the World Supermoto S2 title in

Motive power actually from Yamaha, specifically the XT lump. There isn’t the punch you might expect tickover, and it needs 3000rpm to really start to move. too much of a handful below and the Pegaso responds with a note from the twin and little else. But the motor has breathed on by Aprilia to sacrifice end urge for top end go, and there’s a fair of it.

The mid-range is punchy and it’s at the top — although all that be qualified with the words a single’.

The chassis is more than a for the 50bhp motor. It’s soft but very well and impressively stable. The suspension and Diablo tyres had barely up before ground clearance ran and it was backed up by exceptionally good bordering on too good —

The single four-pot Brembo up front (one half of a front set-up) is enough to the Pegaso on its nose from any it can reach — Aprilia a 106mph top end — while the does enormous skids.

And if it’s that sort of that appeals then a could be right up your backstreet. As a sharply-styled stunter it has a lot for it, and as a supermoto race-rep it’s then the XT660X and quicker Honda’s softly-softly FMX650. It good and is surprisingly well-equipped. The LCD had at least two clocks, two trips, a and loads of other stuff I work out, all operated by a switch on the left hand

Why hasn’t anybody thought of before? Another nice is the tank-top cubby hole, by a button on the switchgear, and only the ignition is switched on. Neat.

the biggest obstacle Aprilia has to is convincing people to consider one in the place. The near-five-grand price tag these machines firmly in territory and not far off Hornets and FZ6s for many, those machines are a more attractive all-round But Aprilia are pitching the Pegaso as a fun first, and a practical commuter — or maybe third.

Younger riders shopping for first step to big bikedom do well to find their on something as easy to ride yet as this, and the style conscious may well find themselves at the Aprilia over the worthy but CBF and its ilk anyway.


Good well put together and goes for a single. Supermoto kicks real usability, but price may be an
