Kerkennah is a bike conceived with the memory of the race bikes, but with greater attention to the general public and civil.
The racing memory is recalled in the minimum dimensions in particular in the front area free from the radiator and from refined chassis, as well as from plastics by particularly technical forms and captivating.
The civil aspect instead is underlined by extremely reliable engine, and alloy wheels that require less maintenance compared to those traditionally used in the race rays.

Aprilia Kerkennah is powered by a single cylinder engine 4 valves with single overhead camshaft distribution equipped with a high design modernity, throughout the bike wheel, that is born, around it and to some very innovative solution ciclistiche.

The rear subframe and the tank / saddle group revolve on a hinge located behind the steering, in this “arto”?? They are also housed the battery, the air box and all electronic. The air box is grafted onto a plastic flange mounted to the throttle body downstream with rubber sealing system at the time of closing of’ “arto ??”.

The chassis is based on a well known system in Aprilia, or perimeter frame in double-shell die and rear swingarm, also it presents a series of steering system without steel sleeve ( the fork plates are monobloc) .
Although the scheme is conventional, the development of the chassis is completely new because it reflects some parallel technical solutions that have influenced the project must be, primarily the presence of the radiator behind the swingarm pivot and also the steering system without steerer. These two elements are incorporated in the design of the frame and swingarm leading to a low total development and slender in the upper part, in this way the masses have moved towards the central zone of’ roll axis of the motorcycle so smagrendo the crotch region to leave total maneuverability and freedom of movement to the legs.
The exhaust system is composed of a system 2 in 1 stainless steel for the collectors 2 in1 and paracalore, while the silencer is made of steel sheet.

The headlight beam using a double-focus parabola and Reflex lamp in position so as to have a reduced front section of the protective glass and an excellent accessibility to the lamp. The instrumentation is housed in an appendix of the front mask so as to be obtained from a single plastic shell, the same is exclusively digital with an LED screen by definition very low but highly visible thus eliminating any mechanical component and LCD panels.

Kerkennah is an extremely technological motorbike, but with not excessive solutions and costs ??, dedicated to a passionate user but want to use the bike every day to have fun on the roads every day.
