New Scarabeo 125/200

Over 750,000 Scarabeo have been sold since 1993, to tame inner city traffic, dominate urban ring roads and carry their riders with natural elegance and unmistakable style.

As with everything else on the Scarabeo 125/200, the engine is brand new, and designed by Aprilia specially for Scarabeo.

Both are liquid cooled with four valve, double overhead cam cylinder heads, used for the first time on an Aprilia scooter of this size. By optimising valve timing, this technical solution, typical of high performance engines, succeeds in combining high power with low emissions. The 200 version delivers an impressive 14 kW (19 HP) at 8250 rpm, with generous torque (17 Nm at 7500 rpm), for sporty yet relaxing acceleration and excellent active security under all riding conditions.
