THE NEW SPORTCITY RANGE: NOW SPORTIER THAN EVER
The thoroughbred design remains the same: authentically sporty, decisively Aprilia. But now the Sportcity boasts improved technology for a more intense riding experience. The new Sportcity comes with a 250 cc engine, and combines functionality safety, agility and riding comfort. Sportcity’s compact dimensions and unmistakable design satisfy your need for sports performance in the city and out of town.
ITALIAN DESIGN, EUROPEAN STYLE
Sportcity is the ideal scooter for a dynamic, sporty European lifestyle. Its distinctive styling shows great attention to detail and hides a wealth of high-tech solutions. Sportcity is the perfect scooter for living your leisure time in total freedom, with a highly evolved sense of dynamism. In Sportcity, the worlds of sports riding and city life find their perfect match.
A TRAVELLING COMPANION THAT TURNS HEADS
With Sportcity you are always unmistakable, even at night. The halogen headlight and the eye-catching tail light feature special twin reflectors for improved effectiveness and enhanced visibility. Together with the large mirrors and direction indicators, Sportcity’s high visibility lights make a major contribution to riding safety.
SUPERIOR PERFORMANCE IN ALL WAYS
Style and performance go hand in hand with Sportcity. All the engines in the range deliver plenty of power for fun riding, and are the perfect complement for Sportcity’s tremendous agility. The Sportcity engine conforms to the stringent Euro 3 standards too, so that you can carry on riding even when city traffic is restricted (in countries where anti-pollution measures involve restrictions on circulation). The 250 cc engine features electronic fuel injection for an even sportier ride, and for the sort of acceleration that makes overtaking completely safe.
SAFETY ABOVE ALL ELSE
Sportcity lets you make full use of its generous engine power without ever skimping on safety.
Its large diameter, wide profile tyres and 15 inch, 6 spoke, aluminium wheels guarantee excellent road holding and great stability. And a triple disc braking system (with two discs at the front and one at the rear) further reduces stopping distances.
The digital instruments feature new graphics that make them even easier to read on the move. Intelligent switchgear lets you dialogue with the display without having to remove your hands from the handlebars.
Sportcity is superior in carrying capacity and functionality too. The generous leg shield storage compartment provides plenty of space for personal effects.
MORE ROOM THAN EVER, FOR ENHANCED RIDER AND PASSENGER COMFORT
Passengers travel in greater comfort and safety than ever on the new Sportcity, thanks to convenient rear grab handles and folding footrests. The under-seat storage compartment is now more capacious than ever, and quite big enough to hold a jet helmet with visor plus other items besides. The wide, flat platform leaves ample space for shopping or a bulky bag, and provides comfortable support for your feet throughout your journey.
STYLE WITH A HIGH-TECH FLAIR
Sportcity fully satisfies your need for distinctive style, with a high-tech finish that adds a clear, sporty edge. A two tone seat, chrome-plated crash guards, and a paint finished dashboard and luggage rack demonstrate attention to stylish details. Even the colour schemes are designed to bring out the decisive character of this sporty scooter.
The Sportcity range comes with all the accessories you need to fulfil your desire for liberty at all times. Aprilia’s dedicated accessories are designed to blend in perfectly with Sportcity’s sporty, dynamic lines, and are made from top quality materials for maximum efficiency and practicality.
