2002 Aprilia Rally 50 from United Kingdom
Very fast, very reliable, very expensive, very economic, amazing when things don't go wrong
I got the bike second hand. I have been riding it for only 4 months, and have clocked up 7000 kilometres.
2 weeks after I got it, the exhaust gasket snapped, but this wasn't a big deal, as I just got the sports exhaust I wanted - cost £110 fitted.
A fuse blew, but that was caused due to attempting to start on a flooded engine.
I crashed it; I had to get a new front mudguard, and front panels. Cost £250 2nd hand. Over £350 brand new.
At its next test, I need a new rear tyre and suspension. Going to be around £200 for these 2 parts. Very very expensive, but it is worth it.
The seat doesn't wear at all.
It is fast off the mark, and de-restricted it will hit 45, 50 with a sports exhaust.
It is very expensive to get new parts.
My mates crashed their Chinese imports; not as bad as my crash, and they were written off.
I have ridden it over 200 miles in one day, doesn't struggle with long journeys.
Handles well off-road also.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes

2001 Aprilia Rally 50 from United Kingdom
A reliable workhorse
The contra spring has had it.
The clutch sticks.
The exhaust blows a bit.
Only has a 3.5 litre fuel tank.
This scooter has never let me down.
However the previous owner abused it really bad and I received it in a very poor state.
I paid 300 pounds for it and have so far spent around 140. I am spending more on it as I don't plan to get rid of it for a long time.
When the transmission works properly it has pretty quick acceleration and it handles well.
It's a very rare scooter, I haven't seen any the same.
At the end of the day it gets me to work and that's its one sole purpose.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Don't Know
