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.
