Loris Capirossi tribute: The Malaguti Phantom F12 R Capirex

Okay, so it's only a 50cc scooter, but it has Capirossi's number on it, which makes it icy cool...

Italian scooter specialists, Malaguti are doing this very stylish Phantom F12 R Capirex that you see here. Okay, it’s only a small scooter, but it’s Malaguti’s tribute to one of MotoGP’s finest racers ever – Loris Capirossi. The scooter sports Capirossi’s number 65, and the colour scheme and some styling cues, say Malaguti, are from Loris’ Ducati Desmosedici GP7 racebike.

At around US$3,300 the Malaguti Phantom F12 R Capirex is a bit pricey, but if you can’t afford a Desmosedici RR, perhaps it’s the next best thing? More details on the Malaguti website here.

If Malaguti can build a scooter in tribute to Capirossi, why can't Yamaha build one for Rossi? So here it is - the 2007 Yamaha Aerox Valentino Rossi edition!
