Aprilia 650 Pagaso Trail 06-2

In the history of motorcycling, no name has been more apt for a machine made to satisfy its rider’s need for freedom. In Greek legend, Pegasus was the winged horse, a symbol of power and freedom.

Ever since it was introduced, the Aprilia Pegaso has perfectly embodied the universal motorcycle concept. Cleverly designed and attractively styled, the Pegaso has always been packed with advanced technology and has always satisfied needs as diverse as urban mobility and long distance touring. And no matter how you use the Pegaso, enjoyment is guaranteed, in keeping with Aprilia’s philosophy that biking should be fun.

The APRILIA PEGASO 650 TRAIL continues the success story that began over 12 years ago, and has since taken the Pegaso to the top of the international sales charts, establishing it as the world’s best 650 cc enduro.

The latest Pegaso is a better all-round motorcycle than ever before. The PEGASO 650 TRAIL in particular is better at long range touring, thanks to superior comfort, an advanced new engine and a large number of innovations aimed at improving versatility. And all this has been achieved without affecting the bike’s great autonomy and simple, easy-riding characteristics; characteristics that have made the Pegaso such a tremendous success over the years.

Just as the original Pegaso established new records for its class, the new PEGASO 650 TRAIL sets the pace for single cylinder motorcycle technology. It boasts a modern, four valve, dry sump engine with electronic fuel injection and a 44 mm throttle body, a superbly strong diamond shaped steel frame, spoked wheels with medium-knobbly tires for great handling on and off the road, and many more advanced features.

Like all Aprilia motorcycles, the Pegaso Trail is designed according to the “active riding” concept. Agile, dynamic, fast, and extremely satisfying to ride, it fulfils all your needs for mobility and adventure too. The Pegaso Trail is more than able to take you and your passenger to the four corners of the globe.

Thanks to a total steering angle of 70° (35°+35°), the new Pegaso 650 Trail is amazingly agile around town, and the perfect companion for day to day commuting. On the other hand, its superior comfort, and the two-position adjustable windshield fitted as standard, enable the Pegaso 650 Trail to double up as an unstoppable long distance tourer, over all sorts of terrain.
