I'm never gonna be truly fullfilled until I finally get an Aprilia SR 50 Factory Ditech. To me that is the Holy Grail of 2 Stroke 50cc scooters. Although that might not be true if we were able to buy some of the scooters that are available in Europe. That L/C Yamaha Aerox is pretty sweet. I've always wondered why they don't sell the Aerox over here? I know their has to be a market for it. 2009 Aerox 2 stroke
The Aprilia is a sweet ass ride, smooth, comfy, and runs good with decent power. I dont think they are worth the money though. A friend of mine has one thats been "gameboy" tuned and is otherwise stock. Ive riden it and dont get me wrong they are a very good platform, but i asked myself if i could justify buying one for me. Myself said "hell no, could you imagine the scooter you could build for over 3g?". I agreed with myself lol. The friend that owns it also races BMX and is a good rider so we got into a bit of a cornering battle when we rode together. He was very fast through the turns on the Aprilia but i was right on him, then powered right around him with a few turns left..It was too fun for the street and we agreed that we shouldnt ride together if we couldnt help but race lol. I havent rode with him since. I would love to have one and build the heck out of it. I could see paying 2grand for a new one. I think its cooler taking a $500 pos china scooter and blowing the mirrors off a Ferrari scooter A 100cc yami Aerox, yes, yes!
The attraction to Aprilia to me is direct injection (DiTech). There are performance parts made for them and a 70cc DiTech should be more fuel efficient than a 70cc carbureted engine. Plus, it's just something I haven't got to mess with yet so I'd like to see what it's all about.
