Yamaha Aerox SP55 - make your mark

16th May 2011 Print
Yamaha Aerox SP55

For 2011, Yamaha introduces a brand new Special Version of the 50cc Aerox scooter, the SP55. Carrying the number '55' - representing the year of Yamaha Motor's foundation (1955) - the scooter's sporty, bold red and black bodywork, finished with carbon effect touches, is designed to make an impression. This striking styling also evokes Yamaha's unparalleled heritage as a manufacturer of superior sports bikes, as well as its historic successes on the racetrack.
'Make your mark'
The new Aerox SP55's urban-inspired design conceals a high-output, liquid-cooled 49cc two-stroke engine, built for sporty acceleration. In addition, powerful 190mm front and rear disc brakes combine with grippy 13inch tyres to provide quick, assured stopping every time.
A stylish three-tone seat, with carbon-print skin, combines with distinctive red and white graphics to underline that this is an Aerox with a seriously competitive spirit. While red pinstripes on the wheels add a distinctive touch of true sporty style, a powerful headlight offers real road presence during night-time riding.

Since agility and control are all-important characteristics, the Aerox SP55 is also effortless to ride. Acceleration comes courtesy of the smooth automatic transmission; the lightweight chassis offers swift handling, ideal for cutting through the traffic or manoeuvring in tight spaces.

Adept at tackling all kinds of surface - from city streets to country roads - race-style suspension ensures a smooth, comfortable ride: an adjustable rear shock with piggy-back reservoir allows riders to customise the setup to suit their own style.

With the roomy seat offering ample space for a passenger to join the action, a full-face helmet is easily accommodated in the storage space underneath it. And the scooter's streetwise, sporty attitude is expressed in the details: from scalloped air scoops to a special analogue speedo and fuel gauge.
