Aprilia SR Motard 50/125

Aprilia SR Motard 125

Aprilia not only focused their bikes lineup to just big capacity machine, but now they have surprised us with this SR Motard which comes in 50cc and 125cc variation. If you think you have seen this bike before, you are correct, since this bike is based on the Gilera Typhoon bike.

SR Motard is the name given, but why it’s called Motard? According to the press release by Aprilia “ the soul about more “fun” of Aprilia sport bikes is certainly linked to the world of Supermoto bikes. Nate as an elaboration of road bikes off-road, supermoto have successfully combined the ease of driving of the motorcycle enduro set-up and performance of asphalt. The new SR Motard, in the SR family of sports scooters, contain the spirit of the great Supermoto SXV Aprilia Dorsoduro and the likes. 


The tyre are equipped with 120/70 – 14″ for both wheels. This will make it feels much more like a scooter. Brakes for the front are 220mm disc plate with 140mm rear disc plate which is adequate for this 106kg ride.

Chassis is the traditional single-cradle frame with 86mm telescopic front fork with single-sided swing arm for the rear suspension. That should be enough and keeps the price low, but knowing Aprilia, the price won’t be cheap here in Malaysia.
