If I were planning on riding that much I wouldn't use an SR either. This thing is so much fun though. I have been amped up ever since doing the ride earlier.

Scooters make empty parking lots fun!

I used to take my Rattler 50 through empty parking garages late at night and rip around. So much fun. This one would really be a kick since it is quick, handles, and brakes.

No variator spacers in USA models....just game boy the computer to go to test mode....
A aftermarket pipe, some Dr. Pulley sliders, and you should be up to 55 mph, with the 50cc engine.....
A good forum for aprilia's are at AF1 Aprilia forum, with a active sub-forum there......
According to AF1 forum, High Gain Dyno charts, the 2009 model he had to test had the variator spacer. Once removed and flashed with 2.8.0 map it was good for 55mph.

Mine is stuck at 45mph actual. Have some work to do on the variator but I think the rest will stay stock other than a spark plug change.

Just a brief update on the bike so far. This is the ultimate 50! You can go uphill at 30mph part throttle and crank it open and the bike accelerates! I am 170lbs nekkid for reference. Steep hill too.

My first partial tank netted 95.5mpg!

My rattler 50 got maybe 70mpg at best.

It has been lethargic to start in cold weather but the more I ride/use the bike the faster the starts.

For a scooter it packs a very high fun quotient.
