Aprilia Scarabeo 125 and 200i 2012: A New Face

After a few changes to its engine last year, now has two injection maps to drive in normal mode or economy, the Scarabeo is back in 2012 under fairings redesigned.

His style became a neo-retro anything included in the trend, and to comfort his seat was also reviewed.

Highly acclaimed on the other side of the Alps, including the female, the Scarabeo is still struggling to establish itself in France.

The 750,000 units produced since the launch of the first version in 1993, indeed, for the most part been sold in Italy.

In France and other countries, we are too attached to the scooter segment GT! Too bad, because a large-wheeled scooter does certainly not a great carrying capacity, however it offers first-class dynamic performance and can be very comfortable and convenient, especially when traveling in a skirt.

Hopefully this new version of the restyled “Beetle”, will attract attention to this neglected category yet. For this, the 125i and 200i 2012 Scarabeo is no shortage of arguments.

More feminine

The new Scarabeo is recognizable by its front radiator grille oval mounted on a fairing that was rounded. The new flagship station still occupies the space of the cowling of the handlebars (also redesigned), but the lights are now transported down closer to the base of the steering column (for more visibility tells us the manufacturer).

New chrome mirrors replace the old plastic accessories. For added comfort, the new Scarabeo has a double seat, texture revisited, and that installs on a redesigned rear block. This includes a new fire. The result is a stylish scooter whose lines were rounded.

Trend, the design of the front is now in the neo-retro, urban style in vogue.

Two maps injection

Otherwise, chassis and engines are unchanged. Two engines are available, a 125 cm3 and 200 cm3 of another. The 2012 Scarabeo retains its double injection mapping (selectable on the handlebars) installed last year.

It can develop into normal mode (Sport), and a simple flick on the button to stalk right to switch to Eco 7% in order to save fuel (and as much CO2 emissions). Chassis side, note that this scooter has a 16-inch brake torque available at the left lever.
