The Aerox is very light and nimble, so perfect for nipping around town. With its upside forks, fat 13” tyres and discs brakes, the Yamaha handles far better than the average shopping scooter.
Making a claimed 2.6bhp, the Aerox R is powered by a liquid-cooled, single-cylinder, carburetted two-stroke motor. It has an electric start and a CVT gearbox. In restricted from it’ll only do 30mph, but there are derestriction kits available to unleash more power.
Sports scooters like these are going to be used and abused by their 16-year old owners, or wheelied around paddock by racers, so they need to be durable. The Aerox R ticks that box and is well finished.
As cool as the Aerox R is, three grand is a lot for a moped, especially when it doesn’t offer any performance gain over the competition. Save your money for a 125 and buy a cheap moped when you’re 16. Find a Yamaha Aerox for sale
