Aprilia SXV Lionhead by Stefano Ceppi

Aprilia SXV Lionhead by Stefano Ceppi

Stefano Ceppi is a talented Italian designer who loves to create unique products and vehicles. Its latest creation is a redesigned Aprilia SXV supermoto which draws inspiration from the animal kingdom. Ceppi’s design approach is based on the animal anatomy and borrows many elements from the felines, especially the lion.

Mr. Stefano Ceppi choose the lion because it is Aprilia’s symbol and is also an historical symbol of the ancient and powerful Republic of Venice which is the company’s birthplace.

Featuring sleek lines and an agile stance, Ceppi’s Aprilia SXV Lionhead inspires agility, power and respect - three traits that are common among the feline species.

The front of the concept was designed using many elements borrowed from a lion head, while the fuel tank is inspired by the muscle fibres of the animal’s shoulders. The tank features carbon fibre inserts and a tasty mix of lines and colors which mirror the white and red muscle fibres.

While the front of the bike was completely modified, the rear received only minor adjustments remaining pretty similar with the original SXV style.

The riding position is slightly more aggressive than the original model. The seat is a bit longer to allow the rider to seat an aerodynamic racing position, but also shaped and canted forward just enough to give real control over the bike if seated in a traditional position.

This concept was highly appreciated by Mr. Marco Lambri, Senior Vice President of Vehicle Design Centre, Product Development and Strategies of Piaggio Group.

Stefano could’t bring the project to life without the help of "Hexagon Metrology - Cardiff Racing" for the basic Aprilia 3D engine point scanning and Camka for some 3d data for the front fork.

2012 Aprilia RX 50

2012 Aprilia RX 50

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.

2012 Aprilia Pegaso 650 Trail

2012 Aprilia Pegaso 650 Trail

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. It boasts a modern, four valve, dry sump engine with electronic fuel injection and a 44 mm throttle body, a superbly strong diamond shaped steel frame, spoked wheels with medium-knobbly tires for great handling on and off the road, and many more advanced features.

Find out more about the Aprilia Pegaso 650 Trail after the jump.
