I’m all hopped-up on an Aprilia 660 at the moment, but here’s an Aprilia 650 from three decades ago that was quite a bit more polarizing thanks to a distinctive shape from French product designer and motorcycle enthusiast Phillipe Starck. In the mid 90’s, he combined those two facets to design the Aprilia Moto 6.5, an in-town runabout that oozes style – the question is, is the kind of style you like?

Visordown summed this bike up better than I ever could:
Pros: Exclusivity. You will never, ever, see another on the road.
Cons: There is a reason you won’t see any on the road, they are crap.

If you’re looking for exclusivity, it’d be tough to top this. Never officially brought to the US, this bike features a 649cc engine that produces 42 horsepower. To oversimplify, you could consider it to be a BMW F650/Aprilia Pegaso without any dual-sporting pretensions. Pleasantly, weight was low at just 330 pounds.

The seller of this example says that his father bought it new, it has 8,311 kilometers (5,164 miles), and that everything works. It comes with all paperwork, the original windscreen, two mirrors, and a custom rear wheel stand. The only flaws are scratches on the front fender, tail, and on the right side of the fuel tank.
