2006 Aprilia Scarabeo 50 Street
Dedicated to a young target market, the Scarabeo 50 Street provides easy entry to the world of Scarabeo, the first in a complete range of large wheel scooters with five different engine capacities (50, 100, 125, 250 and 500) and a choice of two stroke and four stroke engines.
For all those who insist on the classic lines of a scooter that has made and is still making history. The Scarabeo 50 Street is the essence of successful design. It embodies lasting Italian style and original, eye-catching design enhanced by a choice of undeniably appealing colours.
The Scarabeo 50 Street is fitted with an air cooled two stroke single cylinder engine. This tireless and superbly reliable power unit delivers brilliant performance while also respecting the environment.
The exhaust is fitted with a catalytic converter bringing the scooter well into line with the latest emission control standards.
Scarabeo 50 Street is the perfect scooter for weaving through gridlocked city traffic. It is lightweight and agile but beautifully stable and safe thanks to large diameter wheels and a low seat that lets you get your feet quickly and firmly on the ground.
The large diameter (16") light alloy five spoke wheels cope easily with holes, cobbles, manhole covers, rails and all the other perils of city riding.
Comfort is ensured by the exclusive 'Scarabeo' riding position. This is the result of extensive research and combines the best aspects of motorcycle handling for improved active control with the relaxed, protected sitting position of a scooter.
The comfortable large seat, rear luggage rack, easy to read dashboard with original and exclusive graphics and storage compartment in the leg shield make the Scarabeo 50 Street an irreplaceable companion for everyday commuting.
