New Yamaha Aerox SP55 scooter

The Yamaha Aerox SP55 is a special edition model which celebrates the year 1955 – when Yamaha Motor corporation was founded.
It always seems strange to us to celebrate important events like this with a scooter model, but the Aerox SP55 is a snazzy model with a zippy little 49cc two-stroke engine.

The colour scheme was inspired by winter testing of the 2011 YZF R1 SBK model, and the scooter also picks up Brembo brakes in gold colour and a new three-tone seat.
The small scooter gets disc brakes both front and back, measuring 190mm, and 13-inch wheels.

It’s designed to be a sporty scooter with an efficient automatic transmission and lightweight chassis.
The adjustable rear suspension has been designed for a comfortable ride both on city-centre streets and around the urban circuit.
The seat can take both rider and passenger and the underseat space has room for a full-face helmet.
Analogue instrumentation gives a nice touch on-board.
The Aerox SP55 will be available in Europe from May at a price of about €2,490.
