Aprilia
Italy 1968 -
In the 1960s and 70s Aprilia produced good 123cc Sachs and Hiro-engined two-strokes for trials and moto-cross as well as numerous 49cc machines. Some versions have 6-speed engines of Minarelli manufacture, and there are also models with Franco-Morini engines. Aprilia machines are also known under the Scarabeo trade mark.
