Aprilia SR 50 R

Aprilia SR 50 R

With an entirely new steel frame, more rigid for unmatched manoeuvrability, the Aprilia SR 50 R has an aggressive and aerodynamic design inspired by that of the RSV1000 R Factory offering the best technology and safety available on a sports scooter.

HISTORY

When Aprilia launched the SR 50, it was an epochal moment in the history of the 50 cc scooter. the SR 50 was in fact the world’s first super sports scooter.

Since then many have tried to imitate this winning formula but none have ever succeeded.  The Aprilia SR 50 has always been the undisputed leader in its market.

Aprilia SR 50 R BlackThanks to a continuous succession of technological upgrades, the SR 50 has always been the unquestioned benchmark of its class. The  SR 50  has established and consolidated a string of firsts to its name:

  • it was the first sports scooter,
  • the first Racing Replica, liquid cooled at the time and still with two disc brakes, and
  • the first 50 cc with electronic injection.

Then, of course, there is the aspect that sets the SR 50 apart from all the others – its motorbike-like characteristics with:

  • large diameter wheels,
  • ultra low-profile tyres, and
  • quality hydraulic suspension system.

RACE REPLICA

Just like the motorbikes it is inspired by the SR 50 is staying true to its super sports DNA by updating its technical content and appearance.

The new model makes its debut with:

  • new graphics inspired by the Aprilia motorbike world,
  • new sports colours,
  • new saddle, and
  • a great black spoiler with Aprilia graphics.

Race replica; means more than just race-inspired graphics, and stands for a similarity that is visible in the technology used.

Inspired by Aprilia’s most extreme sports bikes, the SR 50 boasts solutions straight from large capacity bikes:

  • the sophisticated frame offering motorbike-like riding dynamics,
  • high quality suspension components ensuring progressive,
  • supportive damping, and
  • 13” rims (a trademark of SR) with low-profile tyres reiterate the technological supremacy of the SR 50 R.

FRAME

The high tensile steel frame ensures the best weight distribution, with more load over the front end than on an average scooter.

As a result of this are levels of feedback from the front wheel typical of a motorbike, and enhanced chassis performance.

The brake system, with two 190 mm disc brakes and the 13” wheels with 130/60 low-profile tyres –  offer the best road holding and grip.

Riding position is optimised for total control while comfort is guaranteed by the new contoured saddle.

ENGINE

The engine is a brilliant and powerful 50 cc-2 stroke, liquid-cooled and carburettor fuel system.  Combined with its extraordinary dynamic features, this vehicle can give unique driving emotions and enjoyment.

EQUIPMENT

The helmet compartment, can accommodate a flip up helmet,  supplemented by another compartment with a 1-litre capacity under the lug.

Standard equipment for the SR 50 R includes a advanced active matrix instrument panel. Much more than just a regular instrument panel, it is a fullyfledged terminal communicating with the engine control unit and providing the rider with an incredible quantity of information.  The panel has an impressive twelve different functions, including rev counter, chronometer, battery voltage, two trip counters, trip time and maximum speed.

Completing the generous standard equipment are:

  • dual 35 Watt headlamps,
  • motorcycle type switchgear,
  • an electronic transponder, and
  • a dynamic front air intake.
