2008 Aprilia Scarabeo 50

Aprilia has updated its mythical 2-wheeler with extreme caution, allowing the Scarabeo to evolve without making any radical changes.

That is the philosophy that distinguishes the 2008 Model Year. Although it received important upgrades, it didn’t betray the philosophy behind its iconic status. The design is enriched by new stylistic elements with an optical group whose design and technology was renovated. The posterior light is completely redesigned with LED technology to increase rear visibility and carries superb safety implications. The blinkers have adopted white glass with a glazed structure. The front light has also been changed and the steering wheel is improved. An elegant front fairing improves the aerodynamics of the 4-time.

In the perfect Scarabeo style, even the new instruments are completely redesigned and extremely thorough.

The new wheels are even more captivating with a design that improves performance thanks to the lightweight design and slight inertial direction. They are also equipped with a more generous rubber area, guaranteeing perfect stability.

The two-cylinder theme is unaltered in the 50 Street. The Scarabeo 50 Street, the leading seller in Italy, is the go-to version of the grand Scarabeo family. It is the youngest with a minimalist design and a brilliant 2T engine. The Scarabeo 50 4T is ideal for urban movement in terms of safety and comfort while enjoying extremely economic consumption, boasting of optimal performances, and moving smoothly in traffic.

The 4T version is destined for those who want to increase performance. The scooter is in accordance with the Euro3 regulations.

The Scarabeo 50 has extremely refined mechanics that, together with the unmistakable design, epitomize the Scarabeo’s success. The frame is reinforced with highly-resistant steel tubes for incredible manageability and an unwavering stability in addition to a tele-hydraulic front fork with an 82 mm diameter. Worthy of mentioning is the braking system that guarantees absolute safety in any type of situation. The anterior 220 mm braking disc adopted a caliper with a double contrasting-piston (Æ 30 mm) while the posterior brake cylinder (with a large diameter of a solid 140 mm) allows for precise and modular braking.
