Two-wheeled transportation has been popular for quite some time across the world and many companies actually got their starts catering to this need for affordable, reliable, and convenient means of transportation. Those companies that specialize in these vehicles have made a name for themselves in the minds of motorcycle and scooter lovers all over. The Aprilia name especially, commands a great deal of respect from riders interested in enjoying their bikes on the street and on the race track as well. These bikes give their riders more than just a reasonable price and good fuel economy. They give their riders the opportunity to enjoy well made machines with precision engineering and high quality materials. Whether you have an Aprilia motorcycle or scooter, you can expect a worthwhile experience and plenty of satisfaction in the bike. For the 2011 model year Aprilia once again offered up the SR 50 model to the masses. This little sport scooter has a lot going for it in terms of appearance, performance, and style. It is a favorite for riders on the race track with its impressive handling, performance, and speed. It also wins votes for riding on the street and is often ridden on and off road with tremendous success.
Far too many people think of the scooter as an unimpressive little bike only good for commutes and jaunts around town. The 2011 Aprilia SR 50 is far more than that. While it isn’t likely to be mistaken for a sport motorcycle, it holds its own in terms of body design and good looks. At a glance from the front end, the SR 50 could actually be easily mistaken for a racing bike. It isn’t until you see the upright seat and floorboard that its scooter status is clear. With a rather bulbous, aerodynamic design this bike looks assertive and stylish. The wide, gripping tires throw viewers off the scent as well. In addition to adding to the overall racing style of the SR 50, these tires are remarkably useful on the road or track and help provide the bike with overall support and versatility.
There is no doubt the attractive body design of the 2011 Aprilia SR 50 is going to gain it some admirers, but this bike’s ability when in action is likely to win it fans for life. The single cylinder engine may not sound impressive, but when paired with the continuously variable transmission, the SR 50 makes short work of almost any terrain placed under its wheels. Developed as a racing scooter first and foremost, the SR 50 shows its heritage in its amazing command of the road. Riders can expect plenty of responsive handling and control with this bike. Additionally, the rising rate rear suspension provides the machine with more control and gives when the road gets a little rough or around those hairpin curves and turns encountered on the race track and on the road as well. For someone looking for more than just a convenient, fuel efficient way to and from work, the 2011 Aprilia SR 50 is worth the look.
