You’re also going to suffer a wee bit in the ease of use department, the under seat storage area won’t fit a full face helmet and there’s no remote seat release. The lockable front glove box is also a bit of an illusion, see it looks large…then you open it. The only storage area is to the right and will hold well…not much. Why on earth they have a full size door I can only guess, I imagine Aprilia just went to the parts bin and grabbed what was already there. Finally you’ll also have a bit of a hard time putting the bike on the center stand as it’s an older design and somewhat hard for smaller people. You certainly notice it as there’s no side stand.
The bikes real strong point is its looks. Only the crazy three wheeled Piaggio MP3 gets more attention than this bike. Virtually everybody who saw me riding this bike had to tell me how cool it looked. After a while I got so used to it I actually began to think I WAS COOL…turns out I was wrong, as I stepped away from the bike I quickly morphed back into my usual average self and some passer by spat on me. Life at the top.
Summing up the Aprilia. If you were buying a bike off a table of specifications or even the results of a review like this you simply wouldn’t pick the Mojito Custom. However if you're looking for the most shiny chrome pimp mobile…well the Mojito is your ticket. So the question is simple…are you cool or do you need a helping hand? The Mojito Custom could be that helping hand you’ve always needed…you nerd.
