As we said yesterday, Aprilia has released its new range of Scarabeo scooters and today we take a closer look at the Scarabeo 300 Special model, which is the top-of-the-range model.
It’s quite an icon for the Aprilia brand, being both elegant and sporty, and perfect for modering scootering.
While having the most powerful engine in the Scarabeo range, it’s also economical and clean, with enough spark to get you round the city.
Riding pleasure is certainly part of the deal, and we’ll give you a run-down on our road test later.
Below, check out all the new pics and technical specs of the Scarabeo 300 Special.
