possibly one of the worst bikes ive ever owned, the wiring was beyond awfull, the engine was possibly one of the only good points about this bike. although the fuel injection on the bike was awfull and when excellerating it would always bogg before getting up to revs. (read more)

I've just bought myself a aprilia sx50 2010 model and I love it! For a 50cc bike it is one of the best one the market! Topping out at 64 with my full arrow exhaust system and getting there very fast she is a wonder to ride. Seen no 50 faster then it yet and I'm not sure if I will. Joy to ride and overall great bike and would definitely recommend one!:) (read more)

The Aprilia SX 50 is the best 50 out on the market. When you buy it it is derestricted but don't let that fool you. When it is de-restricted i got 55mph on the flat and 57 downhill. Then i bought an arrow racing exhaust and i got 65 out of it. also it is so loud it hurts to listen to. This could be interpreted in a good and a bad way........ mainly good! The bike was worth every penny and if you are looking for a 50cc get this because it is Italian and the best! (read more)

ive had this Aprilia SX 50 bike now for 2 years. The best 50cc motorbike by far! i bought this bike from a dealer, Brand new and standerd. i took the bike home, got insured and went out on it for the first time. i got it up to 34mph standerd and restricted. after a week or so of riding it i got bored with the speed. . . (which most 16 year olds will) After i run the bike in for about 200 miles me and my friend deristricted it, i took it for a quick test drive and got 50 - 53 mph out of it.... (read more)

I got my Aprilia SX 50 last june for around a grand and it had just under 8000 miles on it it does 55mph easy and at a push 58 on the straight and thats with everything as standard with an arrow exhaust it will do about 60-65 which for a 50cc is about as good as it gets especialy an enduro, when i got mine there was a rattle in the engine part and it was easily fixed and this was the woodruff key if anyone has that problem maybe that helps.

I have had my Aprilia for 6 months naw and im very plesed with it...if you de-restrict the bike it will be faster than pretty much all other bikes that are standard 50cc's on the road, the only bikes that can beat it would be the rs 50 and mabe some other sports bikes. This bike can do 50+ easy and mine did 61 when totaly standard...I'm putting a arrow exhaust system on mine to go with a new air filter. If your thinking of getting this bike then I would say go for it...its a truly amazing... (read more)

once of the best performing and best looking 50ccs on the market if you are going to get one of these bikes be prepared to de-restrict it because to be truthfull its dangerously slow when factory restricted as its restricted to just under 30 mph .
but dont let this put you off this bike was well worth the wait to get it de-restricted i dont think im ever going to get rid of mine if youve got a chance of getting one of these DO IT .

To be honest, the bad comments I have made are quite picky and I do a huge amount of miles on this bike for a moped, it just rolled over 4100 miles this week and I cover around 50 miles a day. Do not let my bad points put you off of buying one of these bikes because these are specific to my bike as it is an early model but there has been confirmation that Aprilia have resolved all of these teething problems.
This is the best moped on the market no doubt about it, I have just listed a few... (read more)

The Aprilia SX 50 bike is extremely fast for a 50cc engine, faster than any moped. So far mine has been extremely reliable. It looks great and people mistake it for a 125. (read more)

The Aprilia SX 50 is an awesome bike and I would happily have this over any other 50cc bike off the shelf, in my opinion, it's the best looking 50cc on the market. Everywhere I go I get nothing but looks and all for the good reasons and as it has the same engine as the RS50. It is also quick like you wouldn't believe with power bottom, mid range and top end. I would definitely recommend this to anyone. (read more)
