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 supersports scooter. Since then many have tried to imitate this winning formula but none have ever succeeded. SR 50 has always been the undisputed leader in its market. Thanks to a continuous succession of technological upgrades, the SR 50 has always been the unquestioned benchmark for its class. The Aprilia SR 50 has regularly 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; lastly, the first 50 cc with electronic injection. Then of course there is the aspect that truly 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. A scooter that, staying true to its super sports DNA, is constantly updating its technical content and appearance, just like the motorbikes it is inspired by. The new model makes its debut with new graphics inspired by the Aprilia motorbike world, new sports colours, new saddle and, last but not least, a great black spoiler with Aprilia graphics.
With the SR, “race replica” means more than just race-inspired graphics, and stands for a similarity that is most clearly visible in the technology used. Unquestionably inspired by Aprilia's most extreme sports bikes, the SR 50 boasts solutions straight from large capacity bikes: the sophisticated frame offering genuinely 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.
