A rare sight here in the US, the Aprilia RS50 was pretty common overseas, where strict licensing laws made these a must-have for aspiring sportbike pilots who didn’t yet qualify for the overwhelming power of a 600 or even 400cc machine… Of course there are plenty of good reasons to ride an RS50, even if you’ve long-since graduated to a larger machine. Weight is the enemy of performance and, while the little Aprilia may not produce much power, at around 200lbs dry it also doesn’t have much in the way of weight. The tiny displacement meant that the RS50 was classified as a moped, although it really was more a small motorcycle, with 17″ wheels and a six-speed gearbox. The overall package was more sportbike than scooter as well, with a twin-spar aluminum beam frame, a monoshock rear, and disc brakes at the front and back. It was sold here in the USA from 1999-2005, although it continued to be built much later in other markets.As usual, Aprilia didn’t build the engine in-house, so the RS50 was powered by a liquid-cooled, two-stroke Minarelli AM6 engine displacing 49.7cc. All that snarling power could push the lightweight machine to 55mph, and this bike’s 75cc big bore kit should pretty much double the engine’s output… Keep in mind, these were raced in Europe, so plenty of tuning and suspension upgrades exist.
