Motorcycle insurance bargains: Aprilia Pegaso Factory

Published: 28 September 2009

Motorcycle insurance costs are an important consideration for any bike buyer. That's why MCN is highlighting some of the best cheap-to-insure motorcycles out there. Like the Aprilia Pegaso Factory

Insurance group: 9
Used price: £3,000 - £5,200
Engine: 660cc single, 5 gears
Power: 48bhp
Top speed: 115mph
Weight: 168kg     

A 'Factory' Aprilia for less than 5 grand? Yep. The Pegaso Factory boasts a radial front brake with braided hoses, gold spoked rims, lots of trick carbon fibre bits and a racey paint scheme to match the RSV and Tuono. Plus it's only insurance group 9.

The Pegaso Factory only has 48bhp, but it makes up for it by being great fun to ride. It's very well set up and lightweight and there's never enough power to overwhelm the bike, so you can thrash it everywhere.

With the Pegaso Factory you also get what can only be described as a glove box on the tank, just big enough for your phone, wallet and sunglasses. Handy. 

The Pegaso really is a tasty little bike for the money. It may not have the power of similarly-priced rivals, but it can still put a smile on your face without getting you into trouble. It's also cheaper to insure as a result.

It may not have the power for A road cruising or touring, but if you want a nicely crafted city bike or b-road scratcher, it's a gem.
