The end SR50 acts as Aprilia’s sports scooter with its technology and expensive price while the Scarabeo models in the large wheeled scooter The SportyCity One lands in the middle as an and somewhat sporty scooter offers a much lower than the SR50 and more styling than the Scarabeo

The concept of selling both an sporty premium 50cc and a more affordable sports 50cc is nothing new, Kymco employing this for a number of years now with the ZX50. Vitality and Agility selling very well their flagship Super 8 and 9 designs. What is surprising is it took Aprilia until to fill the ‘affordable sports hole in their line up the premium SR50. This has been vacant since the demise of the Rally 50 .

The design of the One is based on the larger and original Cube design. The aim with the design was to create a scooter ride qualities of a larger scooter, with sportier that is more popular outside of Europe.

The original used nearly full wheels (15”), while the One scooters split the difference more common 10-12” rim and sometimes awkward looking but 16” wheels found on wheeled scooters like Scarabeo models and Kymco’s lines of scooters. The result is a sharp scooter with styling. The 14” rims come across as looking too

The rim styling is awesome and they fit in with the rest of the look. The look particularly good blacked out, which used on some models. Aprilia spec’d silver which aren’t quite as but they’re still great and can cheaply get their rims coated.

There’s a lot of nice touches on the SportCity One scooters, as the neatly integrated front and blinkers. The headlight and taillight are cleanly integrated, which the entire scooter a very shape.

The rear rack is also a of art and contributes to this scooters quality feel. As we often see the Piaggio group, the gauges are a bit of a let They give away this scooter has been to a price point.

While nothing explicitly wrong they just don’t the same elegance as the rest of the


The only real between the three versions of the One are the motors. Both the SportCity One 50 and One 125 use 4-… engines, while the One 50 Street got a faster but less efficient 2-…. The 2-… found in the 2010 SportCity One 50 is a horizontal Piaggio design the HiPER-2.

Various versions of motor have powered a few Piaggio Group machines the past decade or so, including SR50. Vespa’s ET2 50 and Piaggio’s and LT50 scooters. In the SportCity One 50 a fairly basic air cooled, variant is used which it from the SR50, which a liquid cooled, fuel version that enjoys power and better fuel

The power is still quite a bit than the regular SportCity One 50, and the part is that this can be easily modified to whatever level you’re after.

claims their focus the SportyCity One motor options was which really means used entry level to lower the cost and separate the One 50 from the higher end SR50. no fuel injection, 4-valves or cooling in any of the SportCity One motor However, Aprilia really has on the saving to the consumer, as these enjoy low MSRP’s.

/ Suspension / Handling

An impressively 220 mm front disc brake is on all the variants of the SportCity One. large disc brake solid stopping for the 125cc and over the top performance for the slower of the 50cc models. Squeezing large rotor is a nice floating calliper, which is standard on 125cc scooters but class leading stuff in the segment.

Only a few 50cc (ie. Kymco’s New Sento 50i ) get dual pistons up front.

Handling is also excellent to the significantly larger than 14” wheels. With small scooters boasting rims, the SportCity One enjoys stability at high speed and jarring over bumps its smaller wheeled cohorts.

has also been quite with the front suspension, squishes up to 3.3”. Rear is more average with of travel in the 50cc models and in the 125.

Storage Convenience

The One scooters are quite easy to with thanks to their slate of storage areas. The area isn’t cavernous, but you can fit full face lids there. The underseat fuel occupyies the other portion of the area. Some sort of a is handy inclusion, and the SportCty One this wish with a but very useful compartment on the left corner of the leg shield.

pretty small, but it’s all the you need to keep your papers, some spare and other small odds and If you’ve got something bulky, has equipped with scooter a standard rear rack, so you can try to get with that. You can also fit and other large items the floorboard, which Aprilia has kept flat.

Convenience aren’t quite as plentiful. no clock or accessory charging which are both hard to without once you’ve used to them. The instrumentation is standard fare, with a fuel gauges, odometer and a few lights.

There’s no trip or other information on power and like you find in the higher end SR50.


There’s a lot of reasons to the SportCity One scooters. They excellent style, braking, and storage in a surprisingly affordable The trade off for the low price is in the engines, are reliable and proven designs don’t offer quite the fuel milage and power and of their more advanced

The SportCity One models compete scooters like Kymco’s 50 / 125 and Yamaha’s Zuma/BWs 50 125. The scooters are even cheaper, but the doesn’t have the same of refinement. Yamaha’s Zuma 50 and 125 land on the other end of the spectrum. cost $300 — more, but in turn you get fuel and powerful motors that twice as many valves, and fuel injection.
