Aprilia Moto 6.5

Aprilia 6.5 review

Featuring a sturdy Rotax 650cc engine, the wacky looking Aprilia 6.5 Moto turned out to be an expensive gamble for Aprilia moto, who dedicated a production line to making this model in the mid 1990s. About the Moto 6.5s appearance but there`s no doubt that Starck has produced a striking machine quite distinct from anything else on two wheels. Mostly coloured grey to match the alloy of parts including its watercooled 649cc engine, the 6.5 has a simple, elemental look. The triangular forms of the petrol tank and seat/sidepanels contrast with curved shapes including the tubular steel frame, the radiator and small bash-plate, the upswept exhaust system and the neatly tapering tail section.

The engine is heavily based on the dohc, radial five-valve unit from Aprilia`s Pegaso 650 trail bike, modified with softer camshafts and a larger oil-pump, necessary because the crankshaft uses some plain bearings instead of needle-rollers, to reduce noise. That allows a little more sound from a stainless steel exhaust that is cunningly disguised to look like a straight-through system, and is mostly hidden below the engine.
