2012 Aprilia SR Motard
All the grit of Aprilia Motard
on an every day scooter.
Aprilia SR Motard is the scooter that brings fun
and sportiness into your daily commute.
Aprilia SR Motard is characterised by an aggressive,
essential and compact style. Standing start acceleration,
acceleration, pickup, agility in traffic and braking
are the "weapons" of the Aprilia SR Motard,
designed for the young rider, to come in first in
the every day competition on the city streets.
Design: the Motard spirit in a sport scooter
The "fun" spirit of the Aprilia sport
bike is without a doubt the spirit tied to the world
of Supermotard bikes. Born as a street version of
off-road bikes, Supermotards combined the enduro bikes'
ease of riding with set-ups and performance for the
asphalt. The new SR Motard brings the spirit of great
Aprilia Supermotards such as Dorsoduro and SXV into
the SR sport scooter family.
The design reflects the character of Aprilia SR
Motard which, derived from the solid technical base
of best seller, Typhoon, evolves toward a brilliant
and fun ride. The decidedly sporty handlebar, the
light unit included in the shield and above all the
pronounced "beak" on the front wheel (reminiscent
of the off-road world) characterise the front end.
The flat footrest, in addition to ensuring convenient
seating and riding comfort, improves the load capacity,
thanks to the hook in the leg shield back plate. The
large black 14" wheels with five doubled spokes
show of a decisive and sporty design drawn from the
Aprilia racing bikes. Sleek and spirited, the SR Motard
rear end holds a large and comfortable saddle that
bears the coloured graphics of the body on the sides,
a refinement which enhances the liveliness of a vehicle
born to make every city ride fun. The large helmet
compartment can hold a flip up helmet Aprilia SR Motard
is available in three colours: Black, White and Orange
Technology: brilliant performance and easy
With a choice of two modern, clean and eager engines,
the SR Motard offers different solutions for exhilarating
fun even when carving through the daily urban jungle.
With an ideal torque curve, the 125 4-stroke version
of the Aprilia SR Motard, dedicated to the over-16
rider, can even take medium range trips safely in
its stride. The exuberant 50 cc 2-stroke engine is
confirmed as the youngest and most nimble engine thanks
to the features of lightness and brilliance.
The frame in steel tubing holds a sturdy upside
down telescopic fork while the rear operates a dual
action single hydraulic shock absorber linked to the
transmission unit that works as a swingarm. The large
14" wheels are shod with sport street tyres.
Braking safety is guaranteed by the 220 mm front disc
backed up by the powerful 140 mm modulable rear drum.
