2008 Aprilia Sportcity 250
THE NEW SPORTCITY RANGE: NOW SPORTIER THAN EVER
The thoroughbred design remains the same: authentically sporty, decisively
Aprilia. But now the Sportcity boasts improved technology for a more intense
riding experience. The new Sportcity comes with a 250 cc engine, and combines
functionality safety, agility and riding comfort. Sportcity’s compact
dimensions and unmistakable design satisfy your need for sports performance
in the city and out of town.
ITALIAN DESIGN, EUROPEAN STYLE
Sportcity is the ideal scooter for a dynamic, sporty European lifestyle. Its
distinctive styling shows great attention to detail and hides a wealth of
high-tech solutions. Sportcity is the perfect scooter for living your leisure
time in total freedom, with a highly evolved sense of dynamism. In Sportcity,
the worlds of sports riding and city life find their perfect match.
A TRAVELLING COMPANION THAT TURNS HEADS
With Sportcity you are always unmistakable, even at night. The halogen headlight
and the eye-catching tail light feature special twin reflectors for improved
effectiveness and enhanced visibility. Together with the large mirrors and
direction indicators, Sportcity’s high visibility lights make a major
contribution to riding safety.
SUPERIOR PERFORMANCE IN ALL WAYS
Style and performance go hand in hand with Sportcity. All the engines in the
range deliver plenty of power for fun riding, and are the perfect complement
for Sportcity’s tremendous agility. The Sportcity engine conforms to
the stringent Euro 3 standards too, so that you can carry on riding even when
city traffic is restricted (in countries where anti-pollution measures involve
restrictions on circulation). The 250 cc engine features electronic fuel injection
for an even sportier ride, and for the sort of acceleration that makes overtaking
SAFETY ABOVE ALL ELSE
Sportcity lets you make full use of its generous engine power without ever
skimping on safety.
Its large diameter, wide profile tyres and 15 inch, 6 spoke, aluminium wheels
guarantee excellent road holding and great stability. And a triple disc braking
system (with two discs at the front and one at the rear) further reduces stopping
The digital instruments feature new graphics that make them even easier to
read on the move. Intelligent switchgear lets you dialogue with the display
without having to remove your hands from the handlebars.
Sportcity is superior in carrying capacity and functionality too. The generous
leg shield storage compartment provides plenty of space for personal effects.
MORE ROOM THAN EVER, FOR ENHANCED RIDER AND PASSENGER COMFORT
Passengers travel in greater comfort and safety than ever on the new Sportcity,
thanks to convenient rear grab handles and folding footrests. The under-seat
storage compartment is now more capacious than ever, and quite big enough
to hold a jet helmet with visor plus other items besides. The wide, flat platform
leaves ample space for shopping or a bulky bag, and provides comfortable support
for your feet throughout your journey.
STYLE WITH A HIGH-TECH FLAIR
Sportcity fully satisfies your need for distinctive style, with a high-tech
finish that adds a clear, sporty edge. A two tone seat, chrome-plated crash
guards, and a paint finished dashboard and luggage rack demonstrate attention
to stylish details. Even the colour schemes are designed to bring out the
decisive character of this sporty scooter.
