“365 days of Aprilia RS125:”

published 02/02/2010

It will destroy the new Kawasaki Ninja 250R. (*dis...

Some people may not be used to actually looking af...

Comfort review: For a 'sports' bike, the RS is surprisingly comfy. It has obviously been designed with the 17-18 year old in mind and this is shown in the length of the petrol tank, the angle of the bars, and the height of the seat. The handlebars are clamped to the yolk in firm sporty tradition...

“Aprilia RS125 .”

published 19/11/2008

Probably the fastest standard 125 available.

Cost of the bikes.

Well where do i start with this fantastic peace of Italian engineering. When i was 16 i used to own a scooter (50cc) which was pants by the way! so when i turned 17 i decided i wanted a 125 until i passed my driving test to drive a car. So i had a look about at a few bikes on the net and i was...

“Hot italian sex machine”

published 12/03/2001

good looks, very quick

high insurance cost

Having passed my CBT on a Yamaha 125cc old touring style bike, I was fortunate that my friend was selling his Aprilia RS125 Extrema. This bike in true Italian pedigree looks the mutts, a mixture of jet black, a lot of eye catching devilish red with hints of the frames aluminium alloy make up the...

“Bloody Awesome! The RS125.”

published 31/10/2006

Bloody Awesome! Cheap TP only insuance.

High Mantainance. 2-stroke.

Got my RS125 back in June 2006 not too long ago. Opened the garage door and thought... WOW. its a big bigger than my speedfight lol. For the average 17 year old its a big bike; and a load of fun; its leaner legal for us starters! One thing that did dissapoint me a bit though would be the fact...

I bought the bike as my second after learning on a Derbi Gpr50, a great bike in it's own right. The Rs125 is a great bike in many ways i love it because it handles so well and is very light and user friendly (once used to 2 stroke clutch slipping starts). The bike begs to be screamed every where...

“Pocket Rocket”

Fast,Sexy,light,ultraquick steering,

dont really go above 100MPH,

i have ridden many bikes over the years, i was lucky to own a bike at 3years old ( well nearly 4), a 2 stroke italijet. The wife wanted to pass her test, which meant i had to sell the bigger bike to give her something to practice on. Looking round the shops the RS caught her eye, and she claimed...

This is a great bike. Forget what people say about it being unreliable. Any bike, especially a 2 stroke is unreliable if you don't treat it right. Pros: This bike has amazing handling. Hands down. I've drivven on normal roads scraping my knees in corners on stock tyres. It's a dream to ride, but...

“Back to the basics of riding”

published 20/10/2002

Fast, sleek and fun

gets uncomfortable after a while

I started to ride motorbikes from a young age and have grown up around them and also loving them. But the bike I have at the present time is the best I have ever came across for its size. Of course I am talking about the Aprilia RS125R. There is not mauch to say about this bike but "Oh my god"...

Expesive, unreliable

This is a bike that is very easy to fall in love with. If you are restricted to 125cc or 33 horsepower then there is no quicker machine to be riding. As a first bike it goes, stops and handles perfectly without being too challenging for a complete novice - i bought mine straight after completing...

I bought my RS125 from new as soon as I saw it, I didn't know 125's could look so nice and so full of body until I came across this one! Looking at the bike you'd be forgiven for thinking it's a 250cc, with it's thick rear tyre and large racing build. I just had to have a 125cc for obvious...
