2013 Aprilia Mojito 125

Posted on by  

The Aprilia Mojito is a compact scooter designed for those who are looking for an efficient way to move through the city. The motorcycle was built with efficiency and practicality in mind and is powered by a single cylinder, four-stroke engine with a displacement of 124.00 cc. The engine is controlled by means of an automatic transmission and is fed by an 8 liters fuel tank.

In terms of style the Mojito features a retro design language and draws inspiration from the american automobiles of the 1950s. You also get die-cast aluminium handlebars, a large chrome headlight, shiny aluminium controls, two chrome mirrors fitted as standard, a large, comfortable seat, custom front wheel, disc type rear wheel and lots of chrome.

The scooter’s backbone is represented by a single cradle frame made of a high strength steel tube. The frame sits on a trailing link fork and a rear hydraulic mono-shock absorber.

The rhythm and fun of the caribbean, aprilia style!
The high-tech and environmentally friendly mojito is the ideal solution to all your urban mobility needs.

The beautifully finished mojito is easy and fun to ride, and designed to please all. With its distinctive, reassuring styling, the mojito is particularly appreciated by lady riders.
The basic mojito is now complemented by the mojito custom, inspired by the timeless american automobiles of the 1950s. The custom also borrows features from classic american motorcycles, like wide, custom style, die-cast aluminium handlebars, large chrome headlight, shiny aluminium controls, two chrome mirrors fitted as standard, a large, comfortable seat (solo on the 50cc version), custom front wheel, disc type rear wheel and a host of chrome accessories and body parts.

The mojito is powered by a sporty yet reliable aprilia engine. Years of experience in racing have enabled aprilia to develop an air cooled engine that delivers excellent performance (especially in terms of acceleration) and power that is far smoother and more progressive than the competition.
A 12" front wheel and large section rear tyre guarantee great road holding. The long, broad and extremely comfortable seat is only 750 mm high for perfect control under all riding conditions. Mojito colour schemes are all original, lively and cheerful without being gaudy. Micalised paintwork ensures a classy, elegant finish.
