Derbi Sonar 50 or 125
Derbi once again confirms its ability to satisfy every type of customer, bringing out the new Sonar - a sparkling high-wheeled scooter with either 50cc or 125cc engine.
The Derbi Sonar is the result of the Piaggio Group's immense expertise in the scooter world, combining elegance, a sporting spirit and functionality with unadulterated Spanish style.
Style and sporting spirit
Derbi Sonar fully deserves its inclusion in the high-wheel scooter segment, thanks to its 16” front rims and 14” rear rims that give the rider enormous riding confidence.
The perfect dynamism that counts on the firm support of the big wheels is combined with total riding control, ensured by the position and height of the saddle (just 795 mm from the ground) and the comfortable, flat footrest platform - a perfect combination for a vehicle designed above all for city use.
Derbi Sonar is the ideal scooter for getting through the traffic: fun, nimble and snappy. At the same time, it's a valid solution for female users, thanks to its manoeuvrability and smoothness.
The elegance of the Sonar lines takes on a sporty touch with the graphics emphasising the youthful character that's typically Derbi. The powerful headlight stands out in those lines; fully integrated in the scooter's front leg shield, it gives the Sonar a robust yet sporty feel. A contrast is provided by the protective black-coloured top fairing that highlights the overall elegance of the Sonar.
Great style and forceful sportiness are also implied by the black colour of the big rims, perfectly matched with the classic, sober colours of the new Sonar's bodywork.
Engines and functionality for city life
The new Derbi Sonar is fitted with a snappy, agile, 50cc 2 stroke or a powerful 125 4 stroke engine. Both are air-cooled with an adjustment designed to guarantee maximum reliability and minimum consumption - the ideal qualities for daily use in the metropolitan jungle.
And it's precisely in the city environment that the Sonar is at its best and shows off all the special features that make it perfect not only for urban obstacle races and the unending “stop and go”, but also for the pure comfort of the rider: apart from the useful footrest platform, the Derbi Sonar boasts a roomy helmet compartment capable to hold a jet helmet, a useful, large, rear luggage rack incorporating the passenger grab handles, and a large, clear instrument panel that includes a fuel gauge and digital clock amongst the various indicators.
