If the idea of scooter appeals, but the thought of struggling your local highway on two wheels propelled by a breathless engine does not, the Scarabeo 250 may be just what looking for.

The big brother of Scarabeo range which includes 50cc, 100cc and versions the 250 represents an excellent between the convenience and practicality of a and the performance and handling of a quarter-litre

Hidden beneath the Scarabeo’s plastic bodywork is one major of its success. With a claimed on offer, the liquid-cooled, fourvalve, 244cc, four-… singlecylinder is both quiet and smooth, and enough to get the scooter to an easy cruising speed and keep it Twist that throttle a further and you’ll find even power available for the odd move, although like any 250 it can take some time to get up at higher speeds.

Around the Scarabeo is a master of nip and tuck. narrow and agile enough to neatly into virtually any gap once you’ve reached the of the traffic light queue, the automatic transmission and punchy combine to make rapid a cinch. I lost count of the of revhead tintoppers who tried to catch the Scarabeo off the mark, and gave up as the plucky little kept on motoring into the

The other thing. well, two to be exact. that make the such a handy urban are its 16-inch alloy wheels. smaller scoots, which 10 or 12-inchers that don’t do for on-road stability and often at the sight of a pothole or bump, the motorcycle-sized hoops allow it to straight and true under all but the road conditions. The bigger also give the Aprilia a level of stability and steering it goes where you want it to go, and complain or cause a fuss the pace hots up.

Beefy (for a scooter, at 36mm telescopic forks and a monoshock with spring adjustment enhance the Scarabeo’s capabilities, as does the sturdy steel frame, which flex like the chassis on cheaper and smaller scooters.

The box is big enough for a full-face helmet and gear, and it’s definitely because there ain’t no under the seat for anything than a toolkit and the fuel filler cap. There’s a shopping bag hook, plus storage space behind the in the form of a lockable compartment will take a mobile wallet and other small

The Scarabeo 250 has a 9.5-litre fuel which is good for more 200km between fills regular freeway use. The gauge seemed pretty and has a speedo, tripmeter, clock and gauge to keep it company on the instrument panel.

A small helps take the edge off the sit-up-and-beg scooter riding on highway runs, and both a and sidestand are fitted as standard, the sidestand is one of those cheeky types. You’ll probably end up the centrestand all the time anyway, we did.

The quirky styling may not be to taste, but there’s no disputing the other talents. More just a commuter or urban this is one scooter that be wasted being left in the come the weekend.
