The new Aprilia scooter Sportcity Cube 300 for 2010 shows the sporty Aprilia scooter style, in a larger model with high quality finish. The 300 cc engine provides a powerful solution to city riding and for longer range trips as well.
The Sportcity Cube has been designed for robust, everyday riding with a large, comfortable seat for rider and passenger and underseat storage enough for a jet helmet with visor and other small objects. The 300 cc motor is still housed on a compact, high wheel model, for easy riding and handling. The seat is 815 mm high for greater comfort and on-board features include multi-function display and rev counter similar to maxi scooter models.
The various display controls are positioned on the handle bars for greater comfort and security. The chassis is characteristic of Aprilia sports style with a telehydraulic fork measuring 35 mm and a travel of 100 mm. The wheels are 15-inch with tubeless tyres of 120/70 at the front and 130/80 at the rear and the brakes include front 260 mm twin discs with floating callipers and parallel twin pistons, and a rear 220 mm disc brike with single piston.
The four-valve engine has electronic ignition and 22.5 hp at 8,000 rpm and torque of 22 Nm at 6,500 making this a powerful single cylinder engine for its class. For those looking for a less powerful option, the Aprilia Sportcity Cube also comes in a 125 option with 15 hp which is great for city riding, with lower fuel consumption and a nine-litre tank.
Aprilia also offers a large range of accessories for its Sportcity models, including 4 mm windshield, sports windshield, 35 litre or 32 litre rear storage box, optional back rest and electronic alarm.
