2009 Aprilia Sportcity One
Our increasingly congested world is crying out for
vehicles capable of beating urban traffic with speed,
style and elegance. Almost by definition, the scooter
is the ideal urban vehicle. And over the years the
scooter has evolved to cater for changing needs. The
latest design trends emphasise practicality, safety,
agility and economy, with a flair for fashion and
Now, thanks to the Sportcity One you can save money
without having to scrimp on comfort and technology.
In fact, you still benefit from a superb design based
on quality and practicality. Aprilia’s Sportcity
range re-interprets the concept of the high wheel
scooter. The Sportcity stands out for its unique style
and its ability to offer safety, fun and economy.
Aprilia’s recipe has obviously gone down well
with the public, given the excellent sales figures
achieved. Now the Sportcity family is bigger than
ever thanks to the introduction of the Sportcity One.
The Aprilia Sportcity One conserves all the features
that made its “big sister” so popular
but offers an even better quality to price ratio.
Original and unmistakable, the One is a truly modern
scooter and a worthy addition to the Sportcity range.
With the same elegant design and sporty personality
that made the range so popular, the Sportcity One
stands our for its rational and practical character.
The Sportcity One is Aprilia’s offer to riders
in search of a scooter that is not only fashionable
but easy to ride too.
The Aprilia Sportcity One is safe, agile, and able
to beat city traffic in comfort and style –
and with negligible running costs. This king of the
metropolitan jungle is designed precisely as an everyday,
urban commuter and just loves to nip through city
traffic. The Sportcity One uses advanced technology
to reduce costs (both purchase cost and running costs)
and to deliver exciting performance. Even the standard
equipment is impressive. The Sportcity One comes in
a choice of two engine sizes (50 and 125) to cover
all possible urban mobility needs.
Design: A True Sportcity
With its decisive, simple yet distinctive lines,
one glance is enough to see that the One is a true
Sportcity. The compact yet protective front shield,
generous seat, passenger grab handles and flat platform
all compress maximum spaciousness into minimum space.
Neither does the Sportcity One’s essential design
stop it offering one of the best under-seat storage
compartments in its class, with enough room for a
full face helmet.
Thanks to an exceptionally rational design and clever
use of space, the Sportcity One gives you all the
benefits of a prestige large wheel scooter at an unrivalled
price. The Sportcity One’s quality to price
ratio is simply the best on the urban scooter market.
Compact size, comfort and practicality have always
been winning features of the Sportcity range. Now,
on the Sportcity One, they are taken to the logical
next step. Superbly agile, the Sportcity One is the
perfect antidote to traffic despite its spaciousness
and comfort. Its generous, anatomically shaped seat
offers plenty of room for rider and passenger. Its
flat platform also provides ample space for bulky
The passenger grab handle is ergonomically shaped.
And the complete but rational instruments deliver
all the information you could possibly need, in a
clear and intuitive manner.
Designed for maximum rationality, the Sportcity One’s
frame is a classical open cradle frame in high strength
steel tube. Thanks to careful engineering, this frame
delivers excellent rigidity and gives a confidence-inspiring
ride and an excellent level of active safety.
With 32 mm stanchions and a wheel travel of 85 mm,
the hydraulic fork effectively smoothes out even the
roughest road surfaces.
As with all scooters of the type, the engine-transmission
assembly acts as swingarm and is damped by an adjustable
shock absorber. A particularly generous wheel travel
of 84 mm (one of the best for this category of scooter)
achieves a smooth ride even on uneven and damaged
To keep the Sportcity One as compact as possible,
14 inch wheels have been combined with generous tubeless
tyres (120/70 at the front and rear). Combined with
the excellent frame, this suspension and wheel system
gives the Sportcity One excellent stability and a
truly intuitive ride that anybody can enjoy. A powerful
220 mm front disc with a two-piston floating caliper,
plus a dependable 140 mm rear drum mean instant stopping.
Modern and ecological four stroke engines make Sportcity
One nippy in traffic as well as safe and comfortable.
Thanks to advanced design and ultra-efficient combustion,
these engines are sporty, clean running, and impressively
economical to run. Simple design means robustness
and reliability too. Both engines feature forced air
cooling and a carburettor fuel system. Both models
are equipped with a catalytic converter and conform
to Euro 3 standards.
Almost 11 HP plus generous torque enable the Sportcity
One 125 to cruise effortlessly on fast main roads
without exceeding the power limit permitted to holders
of a B class licence (Italian legislation). Thanks
to the Sportcity One’s light weight, the 125
cc engine offers miserly fuel consumption as well
as giving a top speed of 90 kph and the ability to
tackle all traffic conditions.
The Sportcity One 50 offers an extremely economical
solution for city centre mobility, running for over
40 km on one litre of fuel. Light weight and a sporty
engine mean zippy acceleration at the traffic lights
and take the Sportcity One 50 to its permitted top
speed in next to no time. Here is the perfect 50 for
anybody wanting a touch of class as well as full membership
of the Sportcity family.
