Hello, I am owner off this scoot for 6 years. I love it, because of it's retro look,but also, because of touring capacity it has. The engine is strong enough. Maybe sometimes you wish more- but,at the end- this scoot is designed more for nice cruising,not for raceing, and it's OK. In this period I fixed a lot of things which are normal, I think, but one problem is constantly present and I am going to fix it now. It's about Voltage regulator. I'm going to replace original Ducati's with… Read Full Review

I've bought a 2011 sparkling rubino rosso Scarabeo in April 2011 and I've been riding it so far, without any major complaints. The engine has torque and at everyday riding on a full fuel tank, can take me up to 220 kms. If you enjoy the quality in construction and the retro looks in a medium size 500cc scooter, that has big wheels and good driveability, both in urban and highway routes, then the Scarabeo is satisfactory. I use it for my everyday commute to work but I also take it to… Read Full Review

Probably the most dependable scooter on the market. Great pick up. Low maintenance. Need a little more leg room. Maybe highway foot pegs… Read Full Review

I would recomend the Aprilia Scarabeo to someone who needs to have room for a passenger or who needs a bike that can keep up with any traffic. In town it is sometimes over powered. On open roads it is smooth and in its element.
I can say that most times in the city I wish I had a Sportcity 250 i.e. However, with two of us and the potential for 1,000+ mile trips, I'd say i chose a really nice all around bike that gets twice the gas mileage of most other motorcycles… Read Full Review

I'm amazed more bike manufacturers have not offered automatic shifting on their bikes. The clutch was one of the most intimidating aspects of motorcyling and this bike completely eliminates that variable. You get a lot of bang for your buck with this bike… Read Full Review

The Aprilia Scarabeo 500 is a top performing scooter. It looks great and is smooth and fast. I think Aprilia really put some thought into making it amenable. There's a gas gauge like a car's with a pretty large tank, a clock, plenty of leg room, built-on trunk that's quite roomy, and a fairing that includes hand guards and lowers. Once I got used to how it handles in the wind, I couldn't be more satisfied with taking the S500 everywhere I go!… Read Full Review
