Holding up Aprilia's presence in the beginner market, the Minarelli- engined RS50 was surprising robust, and ready for almost any speed mod. With just break-in miles, this Cali-registered RS50 has thankfully seen none of that.
A scooter only to DMV, the Aprilia can make 65 mph out of its 49cc single, but uses motorcycle tires and wants a better synthetic oil to help keep its bearings alive. The specs read like a bigger bike with cast perimeter frame, integral seat sub-frame, upside-down forks, and monoshock rear. Cast wheels are 17 inch with 300 mm front and 180 mm rear disk brakes, and bodywork is a sweet RS250 lookalike.
Limited info but looks great and the owner says this in the eBay auction:
For sale is an awesome Aprilia RS50. This bike is street registered in California and runs well. This bike has never been down and has incredibly low mileage for the age. It is a real looker and gathers lots of attention.
A perfect holiday gift that will almost fit under the tree, this RS50 would take you across town or teach a featherweight a thing or two. In a segment choked with knock-offs, here it the real deal, with classy RS colors. And though there is a 50cc fun formula, it would be more fitting if it saw the racetrack from the pit lane...
