The Aprilia RX 50 was the first enduro bike that managed to combine with success the off road riding with street riding.

Like the Aprilia SX 50, the RX 50 is fitted with a relativelly compact liquid cooled, single cylinder two stroke 50 cc engine, mated on a 6 speed transmission. Despite its small displacement, the 50 cc unit has enough grunt to keep you out of trouble on the toughest off road tracks but also on the paved roads.

The engine is mounted on a steel frame, which is especially designed for off road conditions. The suspensions were also tuned to deal with the tough conditions of off-road riding and consist of a front 40 mm hydraulic fork with leading axle and a rear steel swingarm combined with a hydraulic monoshock. The bike is kept in check by a front 300 mm ventilated disc and a rear 180 mm stainless steel disc.

Greek mythology tells us of Pegasus, the winged horse that’s not only one of the most popular in Greek mythos, but is also an enduring symbol of power and freedom. In the history of motorcycling, no name has been more apt for a machine made to satisfy its rider’s need for freedom than the Aprilia Pegaso.

Symbolizing Pegasus to the hilt, the Aprilia Pegaso is the embodiment of a bike that exudes power and freedom, having been designed with an advanced technological set-up that satisfies needs as diverse as urban mobility and long distance touring.

The Pegaso 650 Trail continues the success story that began over 12 years ago, and has since taken the Pegaso to the top of the international sales charts, establishing it as the world’s best 650 cc enduro.

For the 2012 model, the Pegaso was built as a better all-round motorcycle than ever before. The Pegaso Trail in particular is better at long range touring, thanks to superior comfort, an advanced new engine, and a large number of innovations aimed at improving versatility. All this has been achieved without affecting the bike’s great autonomy and simple, easy-riding characteristics; characteristics that have made the Pegaso such a tremendous success over the years.

Just as the original Pegaso established new records for its class, the new Pegaso 650 Trail sets the pace for single cylinder motorcycle technology.
