This bike starts and runs but it does not currently hold an idle and struggles to rev past 6k rpms:

Additional photos of this 2006 Aprilia SR50 R Factory are available here for your perusal.

When it was introduced in 1992, Aprilia’s SR50 was a revelation thanks to several features rarely or never-before found in the segment – liquid-cooling, double disc brakes, direct injection, and 13″ wheels. The clever features and sporty positioning has made it one of the most successful 50cc scooters of all time. Aprilia’s sold over one million of them, and while it left the US market in 2015 it’s still available around the world.

1999 was the first year you could buy one in North America, and the model got a complete revamp in 2004. This second generation was offered in two versions worldwide – the base SR50 R (carbureted) and the SR50 R Factory (fuel injected). North America only got the Factory.

In addition to the updated styling, the second generation saw significant updates to the frame and injection system which led to 60% less oil consumption and maintenance intervals that were twice as long. But it wasn’t just the engine which impressed – unlike most 50cc scooters, the SR50 featured quality Grimeca disc brakes, excellent instrumentation, a large aftermarket community for upgrades, and styling that aped their flagship sport bikes.

This example is VIN: ZD4VFC0096S000005. The seller is our buddy Zack Courts at RevZilla, who acquired it 15 years ago. During his ownership, Zack has covered roughly 3,000 miles. The odometer shows 3,283 miles.

I had a LeoVince pipe on it for about a year, and in doing so removed three of the variator weights; the spares will be provided with the bike.”

Otherwise there’s just a couple of stickers.

Cosmetic Blemishes:
The seller notes “scratches here and there on the main bodywork and in the footwell, but otherwise it’s in good shape. Everything is straight and it’s never been crashed.”

Inside of the tank:

It is riding on Maxxis tires with date codes of 4804 and 4804.

The seller notes that “I’ve added 2-stroke oil, and checked the drive belt a couple of times. Otherwise it’s been relatively low maintenance, aside from the fuel pump being replaced twice. The left mirror broke and I replaced it with an OEM part from eBay.

It runs, but not perfectly. It’s not clear what’s wrong, but the fuel pressure has been tested and a cylinder leak-down test was done to confirm that the top end is in OK shape. It could be the injection system or moisture buildup in the intake, but both of those systems were checked and seemed functional.” Abhi took it for a quick spin and says that the bike starts and runs but it won’t hold an idle and does not rev above 6k rpms (note the video up top).

The sale includes two keys and the Warranty + Service book.
