Aprilia SXV 550 (2007 onwards)

If you are looking for a lightweight supermoto bike that is capable of track racing, the Aprilia SXV 550 might be a good choice for you. It is a powerful motorcycle that offers crazy performance and on top of that, it looks really good. Unfortunately, it has a small tank and its seat is uncomfortable even on short rides.

The Aprilia SXV 550 is one of those motorcycles that are A2 legal with a restrictor kit installed. However, it is not recommended to ride the bike with your A2 licence. Because of its lower weight and high power output, you will have to restrict the bike way below the 35kW limit. This will reduce its horsepower significantly and make it nearly useless considering its main purpose – fun.
