Aprilia designed the Habana Custom series scooter with strong inspiration from American cars of the 1950’s, a trait that is clear to see with large custom chromed handlebars, oversize headlight and chromed trim pieces. Further homage to the 50’s American motor scene comes in the form of the two-tone colour scheme, this particular example in the most popular Varadero Blue and White. Having covered an amazingly low 862 miles from new, the original finish to this one owner machine is simply perfect. The trim pieces are fully intact and damage free aside from very light pitting to the chromed components. The footboard, faring, rubbers and switchgear are all as new, as is the seat which lifts to reveal large storage, factory stickers and the unused Aprilia toolkit. An effortlessly stylish and beautifully preserved example, perfect for café culture fashionistas!
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The 4-stroke single cylinder air cooled engine with Mikuni BS24 Carburettor features CDI ignition and electric start for effortless everyday use. This quiet 125cc unit will exceed 60mph whilst returning an incredibly frugal claimed 87mpg! All mechanical components are spotless clean and the original exhaust shows clear factory stampings. The CVT auto transmission with automatic centrifugal clutch works perfectly and allows straightforward fool proof scootering with a guaranteed beaming smile!
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Fifteen spoke light alloy wheels look superb and are as new. The original Pirelli ST66 tyres of size 120 70-12 front and 130 70-10 rear have masses of tread, and whilst in good order renewal prior to regular use would be a wise safety consideration. The single 190mm front disc and 140mm rear drum braking set up stops the bike quickly and safely.
Registered new on 28 October 2000 by Aprilia Agent Carnell of Peterborough, this exceptional Habana Custom has had just one owner and covered 862 miles from new! A new motorcycle order form and subsequent sales invoice made out to the only owner illustrates the specification and accessories ordered. The owner, an Italian born gentleman was won over by the retro looks of this bike having had classic Vespa’s and Lambretta’s in the past but wanting the reliability of a new scooter. Such was his love for the bike, he insisted upon it being kept inside a warm room and used only in dry conditions for the occasional leisure ride. The resulting condition is totally original and beautifully preserved. The owner has absolutely all paperwork, and in addition to the above mentioned sales correspondence there is the original blue V5 and Carnell wallet containing the service and warranty booklet, maintenance and user guide, warranty card and accessories pamphlet. There are two original keys, the spare still having the plastic code tag and red blade shroud. A collection of previous MOT certificates and invoices affirm the low mileage and complete the history file. Virtually as new and effortlessly cool.
MOT May 2018, HPI Clear.
