The Aprilia RXV and SXV were the first bikes in the world to break the ‘single cylinder’ taboo and install a high performance twin in enduro and supermotard motorcycles. At the time it was seen as an almost impossible challenge to develop an off-road twin that would still be accessible to the riding public. But Aprilia’s R&D had the conviction, determination and experience for the job, and victories in top level competitions soon came flooding in, followed by the world supermotard championship title.
The new babies in the Aprilia range, the RX and the SX, are inspired by Aprilia’s world-beating off road twins. The RX 50 and SX 50 are clearly dedicated to young riders seeking the best technology around plus head-turning good looks.
The motorcycles are powered by a 49.9 cc liquid cooled, single cylinder two stroke with light alloy cylinder. The engine is combined with a 7 liters fuel tank and is mated on a six speed gearbox.
