Yamaha is celebrating a special 50th anniversary shindig, and to earmark the occasion, the Japanese automaker has built a radical new MotoGP-inspired Yamaha Aerox that, for a scooter, looks really dandy.

Its sleek bodywork is finished off in a head-turning color scheme and comes with a special sports seat and a race-type piggyback shock. This setup provides a comfortable riding experience for the rider and, should there be enough space, the passenger.

Whereas other scooters try to catch attention with bombast and sparkles, the Aerox WGP 50th Anniversary doesn’t need to do it. It already speaks for itself, thanks in part to a 50cc liquid-cooled 2-stroke engine and a smooth-handling sports chassis that will provide significant performance capabilities.

This Yamaha Aerox is exactly the scooter that you’ve been wait for. With this upstanding scooter, you’re going to enjoy the thrills of riding a scooter as capable as the Yamaha Aerox WGP 50th Anniversary.
