The Aprilia Scarabeo 300 is a well built machine that won’t disappoint you in terms of agility, maneuverability and efficiency.
It offers a relaxed riding position and is fitted with lots of storage places, so the practical aspect won’t be a problem either.
However, as far as build quality is concerned, the Scarabeo 300 should’ve receive more attention from the company’s technicians as its reliability is not exactly first class despite the relatively peppered price tag.
