Not just a simple 50cc
The SX 50 is dedicated to the very young who wish to join the world of Aprilia motards, made of technology, design and benchmark performance. Like the 125, also the SX 50 stands out for the technical content of a higher cylinder capacity bike, for the characteristics clearly inspired by the SXV series, the twin cylinder motard engine that has left an important mark in the history of world motorcycling and, finally, for the performance provided by its two-stroke engine.
The SX 50 is an ultra-sports motard, equipped with a latest generation engine and chassis solutions which dwarf even higher cylinder capacity bikes.
The perimeter frame is made of high strength steel to better absorb the stresses of sports riding, a combination of strength and lightness.
The mighty Marzocchi tele-hydraulic fork provides a travel of 195 mm, more than enough to absorb even the hardest knocks, as the rear wheel with a considerable travel of 180 mm. The high-strength steel swingarm moves an advanced hydraulic shock absorber.
The single-cylinder, two-stroke, liquid cooled engine features reed valve intake and, thanks to use of the latest technology, provides extremely high performance for the category with a weight of only 15 kg. The six-speed gearbox fully exploits the performance of an engine of the highest level.
