Aprilia Pegasos 650 Trail Motorcycle

The biggest surprise from the Paris Motorcycle Show, the Mondial du Deux Roues, came from Italian motorcycle manufacturer Aprilia.

Aprilia launched the Pegasos 650 Trail dual-purpose motorcycle at the Paris motorcycle show on Friday.

It had not been spotted before or pre-launched, so when the Aprilia CEO launched their new SVX, and then went on to the Pegasos, a lot of us were surprised.

The 650 Pegasos has been in the Aprilia motorcycle line-up for quite some years (12 years), and has undergone several changes. But the current Pegasos Trail would seem like one of their best iterations.

The motorcycle is meant for adventure riding, street and off-road.

The bike looks good when you see it first. Not that different from other thumpers that claim dual-purpose (BMW 650GS, KTM LC4 Adventure, etc), but the interesting parts are in the details and in the extra things Aprilia offer.



Engine

The dual-purpose motorcycle uses its standard four valve, single 650 cc engine, developing 50 hp (37 Kw). Compression ratio is 10:1. The catalytic converter adheres to the strict Euro2 anti-pollution rules.

Chassis

The Aprilia Pegasos 650 Trail seat height stands at 820 mm from the ground (optional 40 mm high seats are available). The wheelbase is 1,479 mm, making it a comfortable motorcycle for two-up riding.

The front brake features a 300 mm disc and a twin-piston caliper for supersport-style stopping power and control. The front brake is complemented by a 240 mm rear disc with floating caliper.

The fuel tank holds 16 Liters with 3.5 liters reserve.


Instrument Panel

The instrument panel provide all the information you could possibly need. The analogue rev counter is complemented by a large, multi-functional digital display complete with on-board computer for all essential information.

The system can be reprogrammed by Aprilia Technical Assistance to run new software releases and custom graphics etc. using Axone 2000 software and the bike’s own diagnostics connector. The computer is safe and easy to use thanks to a convenient switchgear control that lets you select the display function you want without having to take your hands off the handlebars.
 Dashboard
  • A mouse on the left hand switch group allows easy computer navigation and consultation.
  • Various languages can be selected to provide an easy to read user interface.
  • Service codes provide rapid engine diagnostics (CO adjustment, ECU diagnostics, system errors, and service intervals).
  • The gear change threshold is user variable.
  • Function and warning lights for fuel reserve, coolant temperature and battery charge.
  • Immobilizer with emergency reset by means of a user programmable PIN number for total security and easy operation.


Storage

What's quite nice and innovative for a motorcycle of this type, is that the front storage compartment is opened electronically with a button located on the handlebars. So there's no need to take the key from the ignition when you need to access the storage space !!

A 2nd storage compartment can be found under the seat. The sides of the seat come equipped with hooks to be used for luggage nets !
