Motorcycle insurance bargains: Aprilia Pegaso Factory

Published: 16 September 2010

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. This time it's the Aprilia Pegaso Factory.    

Insurance group: 9
Engine: 660cc single
Power: 48bhp
Top speed: 115mph 
Weight: 168kg                        

The special 'Factory' version of Aprilia’s evergreen 660cc single-cylinder Pegaso is a true gem. With its chunky new radial front brake, lightweight spoked rims, a smattering of carbon fibre, the Aprilia Pegaso Factory oozes Italian cool and style. Plus it's only group 9 to insure.       

You’d be forgiven for thinking the Aprilia Pegaso Factory was a burbling twin rather than a single cylinder motorcycle; it’s jus so smooth. There’s none of the chugging, clattery bad manners you’d associate with such a large capacity single-cylinder engine, just smooth power from tickover all the way to 6000rpm, where the Aprilia makes its 48bhp maximum power.

Such a modest amount of power is never going to test the well set-up, lightweight chassis or grip from the Pirelli Diablo tyres, allowing you to ride the Aprilia Pegaso Factory pretty much flat-stick everywhere, including corners if you so wish. Because it’s hard to get into trouble on the Aprilia Pegaso Factory - and it doesn’t take itself too seriously - it’s a giggle to ride.
