To drive the vehicle it is necessary to be in possession of all the requirements prescribed by law (driving licence, minimum age, psychophysical ability, insurance, state taxes, vehicle registration, number plate, etc.).

Gradually get to know the vehicle by driving it first in areas with low traffic and/or private areas.

The use of medicins, alcohol and drugs or psychotropic substances notably increases the risk of accidents.

Be sure that you are in good psychophysical conditions and fit for driving and pay particular attention to physical weariness and drowsiness.

Most road accidents are caused by the driver’s lack of experience.

NEVER lend the vehicle to beginners and, in any case, make sure that the driver has all the requirements for driving.

Rigorously observe all road signs and national and local road regulations.

Avoid abrupt movements that can be dangerous for yourself and other people (for example: rearing up on the back wheel, speeding, etc.), and give due consideration to the road surface, visibility and other driving conditions.

Avoid obstacles that could damage the vehicle or make you lose control.

Avoid riding in the slipstream created by preceding vehicles in order to increase your speed.

Always keep both hands on the handlebars and both feet on the footboard (or on the footrests), in the correct driving posture.

Avoid standing up or stretching your limbs while driving.

The driver should pay attention and avoid distractions caused by people, things and movements (never smoke, eat, drink, read, etc.) while driving.

COOLER

OIL

Use only the vehicle’s specific fuels and lubricants indicated in the “LUBRICANT CHART”; check all oil, fuel and coolant levels regularly.

If the vehicle has been involved in an accident, make sure that no damage has occurred to the control levers, pipes, wires, braking system and vital parts.

If necessary, have the vehicle inspected by an aprilia Official Dealer, who should carefully check the frame, handlebars, suspensions, safety parts and all the devices that you cannot check by yourself.

Always remember to report any malfunction to the technicians to help them in their work.

Never use the vehicle when the amount of damage it has suffered endangers your safety.

Never change the position, inclination or colour of: number plate, direction indicators, lights and horns.

Any modification of the vehicle will result in the invalidity of the guarantee.

For only vehicles up to 50 cm3

Any modification of the engine or of other members which is aimed at increasing the speed or the power of the vehicle is prohibited by the law; in fact, any modification resulting in an increase of the maximum speed or of the engine displacement would change the scooter into a motorcycle,

which implies the following obligations for the owner:

new homologation;

new registration;

appropriate driving license.

Further, said modifications cause the loss of the insurance cover, since insurance policies expressly prohibit to make technical changes aimed at increasing the vehicle performance levels.

For the reasons stated above, the failure to comply with the tampering prohibition is punished by law with appropriate sanctions (including the confiscation of the vehicle), which, according to the case, can be combined with the sanctions provided for not using the crash helmet and/or the number plate, for the violation of fiscal obligations (ownership tax) and with penal sanctions provided for using the vehicle without driving license.

ONLY ORIGINALS

For only vehicles over 50 cm3

Any modification of the vehicle and/or the removal of original components can compromise vehicle performance levels and safety or even make it illegal.

We recommend respecting all regulations and national and local provisions regarding the equipment of the vehicle.

In particular, avoid all modifications that increase the vehicle’s performance levels or alter its original characteristics.

Never race with other vehicles.

Avoid off-roaddriving.

Before starting, always wear a correctly fastened crash helmet. Make sure that it is homologated, in good shape, of the right size and that the visor is clean.

Wear protective clothing, preferably in light and/or reflecting colours.

In this way you will make yourself more visible to the other drivers, thus notably reducing the risk of being knocked down, and you will be more protected in case of fall.

This clothing should be very tight-fittingand fastened at the wrists and ankles. Strings, belts and ties should not be hanging loose; prevent these and other objects from interfering with driving by getting entangled with moving parts or driving mechanisms.

Do not keep objects that can be dangerous in case of fall, for example pointed objects like keys, pens, glass vials etc. in your pockets (the same recommendations also apply to passengers).

The owner of the vehicle is responsible for the choice, installation and use of any accessory.

Avoid installing accessories that cover horns or lights or that could impair their functions, limit the suspension stroke and the steering angle, hamper the operation of the controls and reduce the distance from the ground and the angle of inclination in turns.

Avoid using accessories that hamper access to the controls, since this can prolong reaction times during an emergency.

Big fairings and windshields installed on the vehicle may produce aerodynamic forces that affect the stability of the vehicle, especially when riding at high speed.

Make sure that the equipment is well fastened to the vehicle and not dangerous during driving. Do not install electrical devices and do not modify those already existing to avoid electrical overloads, because the vehicle could suddenly stop or there could be a dangerous current shortage in the horn and in the lights.

aprilia recommends the use ofaprilia genuine accessories.

,/!$

Be careful and moderate when loading your luggage. Keep any luggage loaded as close as possible to the center of gravity of the vehicle and distribute the load uniformly on both sides, in order to reduce umbalance to the minimum. Furthermore, make sure that the load is firmly secured to the vehicle, especially during long trips.

KG!

Avoid hanging bulky, heavy and/or dangerous objects on the handlebars, mudguards and forks: the vehicle might respond more slowly in turns and its manoeuvrability could be unavoidably impaired.

Do not place bags that are too bulky on the vehicle sides, because they could hit people or obstacles, making you lose control of the vehicle.

Do not carry any bag if it is not tightly secured to the vehicle.

Do not carry bags which protrude too much from the luggage-rackor which cover the lights, horn or indicators.

Do not carry animals or children on the glove compartment or on the luggagerack.

Do not exceed the maximum load allowed for each side-bag.

When the vehicle is overloaded, its stability and its manoeuvrability can be compromised.
