One thing people regularly wonder about is how a CVT (Constant Variable Transmission) works. CVTs are used mostly in scooters, like the 50cc Aprilia SR50 DiTech this document describes, but some larger scooters also use CVTs, and they are even being used on some Audis now! If you’ve ever been confused about that strange little transmission in your scooter, this should help clear things up a bit.

At approximately 6,000 miles, I began noticing clutch slip at high 2nd gear loads. Over the next 1,500 miles, it got worse, until the clutch would break free in second and third under any hard acceleration.
At this time, Aprilia considers this a consumable item and doesn’t cover the clutch under warranty. Fortunately, at $160 list (I paid $144) for the entire clutch kit, it is reasonably priced. Even better, it is very easy to replace. Still, please ask your dealer to bring early clutch failure to the attention of Aprilia. If enough of us complain, maybe they’ll redesign it.

SCOOTERS HAVE ENJOYED a resurgence in the last few months, due to record gas prices. As a result, Piaggio’s scooter sales in 2008 have grown more than 90% over last year’s, according to a company spokesman. FYI, the Piaggio Group owns Aprilia, Vespa and naturally the Piaggio scooter brands. The Sportcity 250 i.e. rounds out the middle of Aprilia’s six-scooter lineup in the US. It has several features that make it well-disposed to commuting, including lots of torque across the low end of the powerband, a comfy seat with a no-slip texture and larger wheels than most scooters for greater stability.
