During the recent AMA weekend at Road Atlanta, introduced a pair of new scooters are being brought into the market.

In Europe and Asia are all the rage and the styles range the full-on Star Wars to retro styling to race Aprilia has over twenty scooter models and they like hotcakes in Europe and In urban areas scooters can be the and, in most cases, the way from point A to point B on the streets of the crowded old-world

In this country Aprilia the scooters being used by students, urban commuters and that want to have the mode of transportation on the block. The two that Aprila has chosen to to the States are the SR50 and the Scarabeo 50. models have 50cc and have Aprilia tagged on the but that’s where the similarities

The SR50 is a trick little with a water-cooled, reed two-… engine, 13-inch wheels shod with tires, disk brakes and back and a neat, fully racing-style shock on the rear. little scooter handles.

The 50 is a retro-styled scooter with an motor, disk-drum brake and, large for a scooter, wheels. What the Scarabeo in high-tech goodies, it more makes up for it in sheer style. got to hand it to the Italians, their have a lot of pizzazz.

Both are fitted with Dell’Orto carburetors; ignition is handled by CDI units; two-… oil is pumped in via injectors; and a centrifugal clutch no gear shifting.

Aprilia was enough to set up a small road circuit in one of Road Atlanta’s parking lots. Setting journalist free on racing on a mini race track was in something Aprilia might regretted. It didn’t take for the test session to turn in to races complete with lock rear end slides into the tight turns, of center and side stands, and other high jinx probably had the Aprilia guys just a bit.

After about a half on the mini circuit it became why Aprilia set up the course. They are of the way their scooters handle and they should be. These rides are light, stable, flickable and basically get around a better than a scooter has a to.

The competition among the European in this hot market segment has a new generation of scooter that acceleration, braking and handling to new for the diminutive breed of motorcycles.

The Aprilia’s get up to speed so running in urban traffic of city streets should be no

The bigger 16-inch wheels of the enables it to handle bumpy slightly better than the on the SR50. One advantage the SR50 has is brakes front and rear. No how badly the brakes on the SR were they never faded.

The rear drum brakes on the did fade when used to up the rear wheel lap after lap on the test circuit.

Both have 2.1 gallon gas tanks a half gallon in reserve. gas mileage in the 70 miles per gallon a rider will go a long between gas stops.

The thing about it was the scooter didn’t suffered ridicule more traditional motorcyclists, there were a lot of smiles and directed at the scooterists coming the vast crowd lining Beach’s Main Street.
