To drive the vehicle it is necessary to be in
possession of all the requirements prescribed by law (driving licence, minimum
age, psychophysical ability, insurance,
state taxes, vehicle registration, number
plate, etc.).
Gradually get to know the vehicle by driving it first in areas with low traffic and/or private areas.
6
The use of medicins, alcohol and drugs or
psychotropic substances notably increases
the risk of accidents.
Be sure that you are in good psychophysical conditions and fit for driving and pay
particular attention to physical weariness
and drowsiness.
use and maintenance Scarabeo 125 - Scarabeo 150 - Scarabeo 200
Most road accidents are caused by the
driver’s lack of experience.
NEVER lend the vehicle to beginners and,
in any case, make sure that the driver has
all the requirements for driving.
Rigorously observe all road signs and national and local road regulations.
Avoid abrupt movements that can be dangerous for yourself and other people (for
example: rearing up on the back wheel,
speeding, etc.), and give due consideration
to the road surface, visibility and other driving conditions.
Avoid obstacles that could damage the vehicle or make you lose control.
Avoid riding in the slipstream created by
preceding vehicles in order to increase
your speed.
Always keep both hands on the handlebars
and both feet on the footboard (or on the
footrests), in the correct driving posture.
Avoid standing up or stretching your limbs
while driving.

OIL
The driver should pay attention and avoid
distractions caused by people, things and
movements (never smoke, eat, drink, read,
etc.) while driving.
8
COOLER
Use only the vehicle’s specific fuels and lubricants indicated in the "LUBRICANT
CHART"; check all oil, fuel and coolant levels regularly.
use and maintenance Scarabeo 125 - Scarabeo 150 - Scarabeo 200
If the vehicle has been involved in an accident, make sure that no damage has occurred to the control levers, pipes, wires,
braking system and vital parts.
If necessary, have the vehicle inspected by
an aprilia Official Dealer, who should carefully check the frame, handlebars, suspensions, safety parts and all the devices that
you cannot check by yourself.
Always remember to report any malfunction to the technicians to help them in their
work.
Never use the vehicle when the amount of
damage it has suffered endangers your
safety.
ONLY ORIGINALS
A12
345
Never change the position, inclination or
colour of: number plate, direction indicators, lights and horns.
Any modification of the vehicle will result in
the invalidity of the guarantee.
Any modification of the vehicle and/or the
removal of original components can compromise vehicle performance levels and
safety or even make it illegal.
We recommend respecting all regulations
and national and local provisions regarding
the equipment of the vehicle.
In particular, avoid all modifications that increase the vehicle’s performance levels or
alter its original characteristics.
Never race with other vehicles.
Avoid off-road driving.
#,/4().'
Before starting, always wear a correctly
fastened crash helmet. Make sure that it is
homologated, in good shape, of the right
size and that the visor is clean.
Wear protective clothing, preferably in light
and/or reflecting colours.
In this way you will make yourself more visible to the other drivers, thus notably reducing the risk of being knocked down, and
you will be more protected in case of fall.
This clothing should be very tight-fitting
and fastened at the wrists and ankles.
Strings, belts and ties should not be hanging loose; prevent these and other objects
from interfering with driving by getting entangled with moving parts or driving mechanisms.
use and maintenance Scarabeo 125 - Scarabeo 150 - Scarabeo 200

Do not keep objects that can be dangerous
in case of fall, for example pointed objects
like keys, pens, glass vials etc. in your
pockets (the same recommendations also
apply to passengers).

!##%33/2)%3
The owner of the vehicle is responsible for
the choice, installation and use of any accessory.
Avoid installing accessories that cover
horns or lights or that could impair their
functions, limit the suspension stroke and
the steering angle, hamper the operation of
the controls and reduce the distance from
the ground and the angle of inclination in
turns.
Avoid using accessories that hamper access to the controls, since this can prolong
reaction times during an emergency.
Big fairings and windshields installed on
the vehicle may produce aerodynamic forces that affect the stability of the vehicle, especially when riding at high speed.
use and maintenance Scarabeo 125 - Scarabeo 150 - Scarabeo 200
Make sure that the equipment is well fastened to the vehicle and not dangerous
during driving. Do not install electrical devices and do not modify those already existing to avoid electrical overloads, because the vehicle could suddenly stop or
there could be a dangerous current shortage in the horn and in the lights.
aprilia recommends the use of "aprilia
genuine accessories".
,/!$
Be careful and moderate when loading
your luggage. Keep any luggage loaded as
close as possible to the center of gravity of
the vehicle and distribute the load uniformly on both sides, in order to reduce umbalance to the minimum. Furthermore, make
sure that the load is firmly secured to the
vehicle, especially during long trips.
KG!
Avoid hanging bulky, heavy and/or dangerous objects on the handlebars, mudguards
and forks: the vehicle might respond more
slowly in turns and its manoeuvrability
could be unavoidably impaired.
Do not place bags that are too bulky on the
vehicle sides, because they could hit people or obstacles, making you lose control of
the vehicle.
Do not carry any bag if it is not tightly secured to the vehicle.
Do not carry bags which protrude too much
from the luggage-rack or which cover the
lights, horn or indicators.
Do not carry animals or children on the
glove compartment or on the luggagerack.
Do not exceed the maximum load allowed
for each side-bag.
When the vehicle is overloaded, its stability
and its manoeuvrability can be compromised.

in particular conditions it can become
explosive. It is important to carry out
the refuelling and the maintenance operations in a well-ventilated area, with
the engine off. Do not smoke while refuelling or near fuel vapours, in any case
avoid any contact with naked flames,
sparks and any other heat source to
prevent the fuel from catching fire or
from exploding. Further, prevent fuel
from flowing out of the fuel filler, as it
could catch fire when getting in contact
with the red-hot surfaces of the engine.
In case some fuel has accidentally been
spilt, make sure that the area is completely dry before starting the vehicle.
Since petrol expands under the heat of
the sun and due to the effects of sun radiation, never fill the tank to the brim.
Screw the cap carefully after refuelling.
Avoid any contact of the fuel with the
skin and the inhalation of vapours; do
not swallow fuel or pour it from a receptacle into another by means of a tube.

Check the coolant level every 2000 km
(1250 mi) and after long trips; have the
coolant changed by an aprilia Official
Dealer every 2 years.
aWARNING
The coolant is noxious: do not swallow
it; if the coolant gets in contact with the
skin or the eyes, it can cause serious irritations.
If the coolant gets in contact with your
skin or eyes, rinse with plenty of water
and consult a doctor. If it is swallowed,
induce vomit, rinse mouth and throat
with plenty of water and consult a doctor without delay.
DO NOT DISPOSE OF THE FLUID IN

KEEP AWAY FROM CHILDREN.
Be careful not to spill the coolant on the
red-hot parts of the engine: it may catch
fire and send out invisible flames.
In case maintenance operations are to
be performed, it is advisable to use latex gloves.
Have the coolant changed by an APRILIA
Official Dealer.
26
The coolant is made up of 50% water and
50% antifreeze.
This mixture is ideal for most running temperatures and ensures good protection
against corrosion.
It is advisable to keep the same mixture
also in the hot season, since in this way
losses due to evaporation are reduced and
it is not necessary to top up very frequently.
The mineral salt deposits left in the radiator
by evaporated water are thus reduced and
the efficiency of the cooling system remains unchanged.
If the outdoor temperature is below 0°,
check the cooling circuit frequently and if
necessary increase the antifreeze concentration (up to maximum 60%).
use and maintenance Scarabeo 125 - Scarabeo 150 - Scarabeo 200
For the cooling solution use distilled water,
in order not to damage the engine.
aWARNING
Do not remove the expansion tank plug
(1) when the engine is hot, since the
coolant is under pressure and its temperature is high.
If it gets in contact with the skin or with
clothes it may cause severe burns
and/or damage.
CHECKING AND TOPPING UP
aWARNING
Check the coolant level and top up the
expansion tank with cold engine.

Some types of tyres homologated for
this vehicle are provided with wear indicators.
There are several kinds of wear indicators.
For more information on how to check
the wear, contact your Dealer.
Visually check if the tyres are worn and
in this case have them changed.
If the tyres are old, even if not completely worn out, they may become hard and
may not ensure good road holding.
In this case, have the tyres changed.
492%3
This vehicle is provided with tubeless tyres.
aWARNING
Periodically check the tyre inflation
pressure at room temperature, see p. 63
(TECHNICAL DATA).
If the tyres are hot, the measurement is
not correct.
Carry out the measurement especially
before and after long rides.
If the inflation pressure is too high, the
ground unevenness cannot be dampened and is therefore transmitted to the
handlebar, thus compromising the driving comfort and reducing road holding
during turns.
28
If, on the contrary, the inflation pressure
is too low, the tyre sides (1) are under
greater stress and the tyre itself may
slip on the rim or it may become loose,
with consequent loss of control of the
vehicle.
In case of sudden braking the tyres
could even get out of the rims. Further,
the vehicle could skid while turning.
Check the surface and the wear of the
tyres, since tyres in bad conditions can
impair both the grip and the controllability of the vehicle.

aWARNING
Avoid opening and closing the throttle
repeatedly and continuously, so that
you do not accidentally lose control of
the vehicle.
If you have to brake, close the throttle
and put on both brakes in order to obtain uniform deceleration, properly exerting pressure on the braking parts.
By putting on the front brake only or the
rear brake only, you reduce the braking
force considerably, thus running the
risk of locking one wheel and consequently losing grip.
If you stop uphill, decelerate completely
and use the brakes only to keep the vehicle steady.
The use of the engine to keep the vehicle at a halt may cause the overheating
of the speed variator.
34
use and maintenance Scarabeo 125 - Scarabeo 150 - Scarabeo 200
If the brakes are operated continuously
on downhill stretches, the friction material may overheat, thus reducing the
braking efficiency.
Exploit the engine compression by
putting on both brakes intermittently.
Never drive downhill with the engine
off!
In case of wet road or scarce wheel grip
(snow, ice, mud, etc.), drive slowly,
avoiding sudden brakings or manoeuvres that could make you lose grip and
fall down.
Pay the utmost attention to any obstacle or variation of the road surface.
Uneven roads, rails, manhole covers,
indications painted on the road surface,
building site metal plates become rather

Normally, the routine maintenance operations can be performed by the user; however, in some cases the use of specific
tools and technical expertise may be required.
If you need assistance or technical advice,
consult your aprilia Official Dealer, who
can ensure you prompt and accurate servicing.
Ask your aprilia Official Dealer to test the
vehicle on the road after a repair or periodic maintenance operation.
In any case, personally carry out the “Preliminary checking operations” after any
maintenance operation, see p. 30 (PRELIMINARY CHECKING OPERATIONS).
Before proceeding, make sure that the
room in which you are working is properly ventilated.
Keep away from the red-hot parts of the
engine and of the exhaust system, in order to avoid burns.
Do not hold any mechanical piece or
other parts of the vehicle with your

a CAUTION
Never exceed the "MAX" mark, nor
leave the oil below the "MIN" mark, in
order to avoid serious damage to the
engine.
◆
TOPPING UP
Pour a small quantity of oil in the filling
hole (2) and wait about one minute, so
that the oil flows uniformly into the oil
pan.
◆ Check the oil level and top up if necessary.

Carefully read p. 24 (BRAKE FLUID-recommendations), (DISC BRAKES) and p.
37 (MAINTENANCE).
Check the wear of the brake pads especially before every trip.
The excessive wear of the friction material would cause the contact of the pad
metal support with the disc, with consequent metallic noise and production of
sparks from the caliper; braking efficiency, safety and soundness of the
disc would thus be negatively affected.
NOTE The following information refers to
a single braking system, but is valid for
both.
Check the brake pad wear after the first
1000 km (625 mi) and successively every
2000 km (1250 mi). The wear of the brake
pads depends on the use, on the kind of
drive and on the road.
To carry out a rapid checking of the pad
wear, proceed as follows:
◆ Position the vehicle on the centre stand.
◆ Carry out a visual check between the
brake disc and the pads.
Use a flashlight and a mirror, proceed as
follows:
FRONT BRAKE CALIPER
– From below, on the front part, for the left
pad (A);
– from above, on the front part, for the
right pad (B).
REAR BRAKE CALIPER
– From above, on the rear part, for both
pads (C).
◆
If the thickness of the friction material
(even of one pad only) has reduced to
about 1,5 mm (or if even only one of the
wear indicators is not visible any longer),
change both pads.
– Front pads (1);
– rear pads (2).
