2006 Aprilia Scarabeo 50 4T
Great ScooterBy (I am an Owner) on Nov 26, 2009
I bought my Scarabeo 50 in 2007 brand new. Mecanically, it has been amazing! I have put 7,xxx miles on it and I have not had one issue and it runs just as well as the day I bought it. For a 4-stroke, its pretty quick. However, dealing with hills can be terrible. I cruise around 38 mph (speedo says ... about 45) on flat grounds and one extra person does not slow it down at all. Going up hills it gets down to about 25 and sometimes around 10 mph if they are pretty steep. I have a Kymco Super 9 also with a 72 cc kit and its not NEARLY as comfortable, smooth, reliable, or efficient as the Aprilia. It is a great scooter and if you are on flat roads, it should be all the power you need and its really comfortable. Change the oil every year though. Also my MPG is around 100. I hope this info helps.
