Super Lite – 2006 Aprilia RS125 in Norway

Restyled to be a dead ringer for Aprilia’s liter sportbike, the RS125 is designed and equipped like a larger track weapon.  From the lands of progressive licensing, it brought box-section frame and swingarm, upside-down forks, and four-piston calipers to aspiring riders.

Aprilia’s two-stroke single is a known quantity, winning Moto 3’s since 1992, this time with Dell’orto carburetor and electronic ignition.  The resulting 28 hp is mostly available north of 7,000 rpm, though a computer-controlled exhaust valve aims to maximize lower rpm output.  40mm inverted forks and rising-rate rear monoshock are fully adjustable. Radially mounted front caliper is over a big 320mm rotor, but just one, with 220mm rear.  Expansion chamber exhaust is a must, and this bike has been treated to the Arrow titanium.  Wheels are y-web light alloy if not forged.

Hard to complain about our locally short riding season when you read about a bike from Oslo, Norway, and with a little over 10,000 miles, this owner has spent some time riding and caring for this bike, as he relates in the eBay auction:

New restored and everything is working properly 100%. Trim setup is mounted is arrow power plant plus rave 2 valve, additionally dyset the carburetor so it gets more gas under higher engine speed of approximately 6000 rpm and upwards. Things that have been made and purchased new. polished frame, new flashing light that is led light in Carbon brake pads front and rear, rear gear, new chain and in addition, it has been the main service and changing engine oil, coolant, brake fluid and spark plugs. It has been laid right in the room temperature, and appears to be rare and exemplary.

Out of production since 2012, when Moto GP changed their formula to a 250cc four stroke, the Aprilia was half-again as costly as its competitors, and this bike’s ask is just about MSRP.  But if you had a track endeavor, this would be a dynamite starter or pit bike.  Plain vanilla compared to the many factory replicas, this RS125 appears undamaged, lightly updated and maintained.  Leaving it to you to coordinate with your summer fjord cruise line to carry this baby from Oslo back to Southampton, where it’ll be as easy ship home…

Ok for the street! 2009 Aprilia RS125

This one is a little newer than what we typically post here at RSBFS but it i s a street legal Aprilia RS125 and is the last generation that had the rotax powered two stroke.  While its not the fastest thing, it would certainly make any young squid the envy of his classmates.

aprila1251

The Aprilia RS125 actually debuted back in 1992 with the RS125R Extrema. The little two stroke Aprilia survived for quite a few years and several generations, with the 4th generation 2006-2012* models being the final two stroke editions.  The 2009 version pictured here is powered by a liquid-cooled 125cc 2-stroke with fuel fed by a 28mm Dell’Orto carburetor via a reed valve intake and finished with a sleek left-hand exhaust that carries the exhaust gas away while allowing that distinctive two stroke roar to be heard by all.

*NOTE: In 2012 Aprilia introduced the RS4 125 which was powered by a single-cylinder four-stroke.

The 2009 was also the last year the little 125 wasb’t shaped to look like the bigger Aprilia RSV1000.  I understand that a lot of manufacturers follow the “lineup family” model but IMHO the 2009 looks so much better than the RSV-derived versions that started the next year.   Perhaps its the cleaner nose lamps or the sponsor emblazoned bodywork  with the race-replica magnesium painted triple clamp, maybe its the polished frame and swingarm with the multi-spoke wheels, I don’t know but it all comes together to make the bike look soo good, like it came straight off the track.

A link to a review of the 2009 RS125 can be found here.

2009 Aprilia RS125 on ebay

Speaking of coming straight off the track, that is part of what makes this little 125RS such a little jewel.  Most 125RS were not street legal and to be honest, this is the first time I have heard that they could be made so.   But the current seller states that this particular one has had some work done to make it so, so someone is going to have a little rocket that is legal on the street.

From the seller’s ebay listing:

  • Only 318 miles
  • Street titled in TX which can now be transferred to any other state.
  • All original OEM Aprilia street parts including the almost impossible to find “street” relays, wire harness.
  • OEM rearview mirrors, turn signals, horn, rear license plate assembly

aprila1252

Is this little gem worth the $6,500 USD asking price?  As much as I love it, I think that price is a bit high.  According to the review link posted above, brand new these went for $5,499 USD and that happens to be the same price we last saw one of these go for here on RSBFS (+1 dollar).  Even though this one has been made street legal and is basically new, the asking price seems a bit high…I would think a fair price for this one would be between $5,800-$6,100 USD, depending on the age of the tires.

One final note:  I think this little Aprilia may actually be a bit of a sleeper for collectors;  it probably won’t undergo any dramatic price appreciation, but it is a 4th gen bike which was the last two stroke edition of the RS125 and is street legal, so it should at least hold its value.   I would be looking to add this one to my personal collection if I had the funds available.

Tiny Dancer: 2009 Aprilia RS125 for Sale

2009 Aprilia RS125 R Front

Most small displacement sportbikes look like small-displacement sportbikes, but Aprilia really knows how to make lust-worthy entry-level machines. While their RS250 is certainly no learner bike, this one definitely is: you won’t be going very fast on an RS125, but you will look good doing it…

2009 Aprilia RS125 R Rear

Manufactured between 1992 and 2012, the RS125 was a two-stroke, single-cylinder bike designed to capture well-heeled young race fans unable to purchase larger motorcycles due to licensing restrictions. This iteration of the 125 was designed to evoke the RSV1000 v-twin sportbike that was at the top of Aprilia’s range until the introduction of the RSV4. With two-strokes being phased out all over the world, the RS125’s place in Aprilia’s lineup has recently been taken over by their new RS4, a cleaner-burning 125 four-stroke powered bike.

2009 Aprilia RS125 Reaerset

It’s a very muscular-looking bike for a 125, although they’re very petite in person. They do feature lights and signals to make them road-legal, but I’ve never seen one that had rearview mirrors fitted. I’m sure a nice set of Rizoma mirrors would add a bit of bling and meet DMV requirements.

This one has had quite a bit of quality aftermarket thrown at it already, and has been tuned by noted East Coast tuner Fast by Ferracci.

2009 Aprilia RS125 Dash

From the original eBay listing: 2009 Aprilia RS125 for Sale

For sale 2009 Aprilia RS125 (GP derived replica). Bike is like new with only 446 miles on it, it’s been garaged kept and rarely ridden. Bike is for competition use only but it is titled, plated and registered in the state of PA and is street legal. Bike has some upgrades done to it and I will included all original parts except for OEM exhaust to the buyer. This motorcycle was dyno tuned and services by Fast By Ferracci and produced 31hp at the rear wheel, all the fluids were changed after 300 miles. This is a real rare motorcycle, I believe only 200 were imported in to US, so if you’re looking for a GP replica 2-stroke this is a perfect opportunity to get one in new condition. I’m sad to let it go, but don’t have time to ride it at all, and need more space in my garage. Thank you for viewing and Good Luck!

Aftermarket parts installed: 

  • Woodcraft rearsets

  • Front & Rear Axle Sliders 

  • Tyga carbon fiber Rear Hugger 

  • Tyga carbon fiber Sprocket Cover

  • Tyga carbon fiber Chain Guard 

  • Arrow titanium exhaust full system with carbon can 

  • Evotech exhaust hanger

  • European ECU with all the harness/wiring – to make the bike street legal. 

2009 Aprilia RS125 R Detail

With the introduction of KTM’s RC390 and the increased interest in small-displacement bikes in Asian markets, here’s hoping that we see a trend towards smaller sportbikes here in the US. I do see the appeal of scary literbikes, of riding something that you know is a barely-tamed animal.

But honestly, it’s nearly impossible to even tap into that performance on the street, and I think it’d be pretty frustrating to own a 200hp motorcycle and never really be able to take it over 8,000 rpm unless you’re risking life and license… A bike like this you could twist to the stop and ride it like a complete idiot with far less risk, and still have something very sleek and exotic to admire in your garage during these cold, dreary winter months…

1 of 27 Made: 2005 Aprilia RS125 Casey Stoner Replica

Aprilia RS125 Casey Stoner Replica for sale

With Casey Stoner back in the news testing the HRC RC213V in Sepang yesterday, this seems like an opportune time to note this special edition Aprilia RS125. While clearly aimed at fans in his home market (the only place it was sold), it is sure to delight Stoner superfans and collectors. There are no performance improvements but the graphics treatment is unique and comes with a signed certificate of authenticity from Stoner himself. It is being sold in Australia so check to see if export is available before bidding — which starts at just under $16k USD and wears a buy-it-now of a little shy of $20k USD.

Pint-Sized Sportbike: Aprilia RS125 for Sale

2009 Aprilia RS125 L Side

We’re on a roll here this week, with quasi-, barely, or not-even-remotely road-legal machinery. This Aprilia RS125 might, depending on your finesse with DMV chicanery, be made roadable: it does feature all the requisite equipment, including lights, and mounts for mirrors and signals, since it was originally intended to be a street-legal motorcycle.

The RS125 was built from 1992 until 2012, when production of the two-stroke, single-cylinder 125 was halted to make way for the new four-stroke RS4 125. This version of the bike features updated styling to match the RSV1000 that was all sharp angles, edges, and stealth-fighter shapes.

It’s a very muscular-looking bike for a 125, although they’re very small in person.

2009 Aprilia RS125 Screen

Overseas, bikes like this have long been the dream of 16-year-olds looking to impress their buddies: unlike here in the USA, where a 1300cc sportbike is just a credit application away from reality for anyone with a license, most European countries have a tiered licensing structure that prevents riders from buying larger-displacement bikes for the first couple years after obtaining their license, or before a certain age.

2009 Aprilia RS125 Cockpit

It also helps that motorcycle road racing is very popular across the pond, making 125 and 250 race-styled motorcycles somewhat aspirational machines for young riders looking to emulate their riding heroes. Here in the US, they occupy a sort of hazy area, since emissions laws basically killed off the breed years ago. They’re still beloved of petrol-heads and two-stroke junkies, largely forgotten by everyone else. But those fans are a rabid bunch, and two-strokes from the trackmaestros at Aprilia always generate interest when they come up for sale.

2009 Aprilia RS125 R Side Fairing

The bike appears to be for sale at a dealership in Portland, Oregon. The original eBay listing contains basically NO information about the bike, but does include a bunch of additional pictures that are well worth a look: 2009 Aprilia RS125 for Sale

2009 Aprilia RS125 Rear Wheel

Unfortunately, unlike the RS250 that came with top-shelf components all-around, the 125 really is more of a budget tool. Although you shouldn’t confuse it with something like a Ninja 300: de-restricted, these can make as much as 30hp, and with a weight under 300lbs, these are serious motorcycles.

2009 Aprilia RS125 Tail

The asking price is $5,000 which seems to be a very good deal, considering that it has 5 miles on the clock. It looks to be in great shape, although a history of modifications would be much appreciated: the tuning parts that have been fitted could conceivably have a significant effect on value.

Size Doesn’t Matter: Titled 2009 Aprilia RS125 in Colorado

Here in the US, there’s always been a limited market for small-displacement bikes. And when it comes to sporting machines, this seems doubly true: in many circles, a GSX-R600 is a “learner’s bike,” and anything smaller might be slapped with the dreaded “girl’s bike” label.

Which is sort of funny: I’ve met some girls who ride. They’re faster than you are.

2009 Aprilia RS125 L Front

But overseas, where high gas prices and tiered licenses make small but sporty bikes a near necessity, the RS125 has a long history of making race-replicas with the emphasis on “race.”

US emissions laws effectively killed the road-going two-stroke here in almost ten years prior, so when it was imported by Aprilia in 2009, the RS125 was not intended to be used on the street, although it came with full road equipment: headlights, turn signals, horn.

2009 Aprilia RS125 Dash

This example is in Colorado and is claimed to have a clear, street-legal title, although you should be sure to check with your local regulations if you live in more draconian California or New York where registration might be an issue.

From the original eBay listing: 2009 Aprilia RS125 for Sale

This is a super low mileage (327miles) bike. Like new.
It is very rare because it is street legal and comes with a CLEAR Colorado TITLE.
It was made street legal using factory Aprilia parts including the factory wiring sub harness.
It is installed with a full Arrow exhaust system.
It has an aftermarket gas cap. The stock pipe and gas cap and two keys come with the bike.

The seller has also included a nice video of the bike being started and ridden.

With just 15hp to play with, corner speed is the name of the game. Aided by a sub-300 pound dry weight, they handle like they’re on rails, in spite of their largely non-adjustable suspension.

2009 Aprilia RS125 Front

Asking price is just a shade under $6,000 which is, interestingly, almost exactly $500 more than the bike’s original MSRP… Depending on your local laws, this could make for a very fun back road carver or track day toy.

280lb Featherweight Flyer: 2009 Aprilia RS125

2009 Aprilia RS125 For Sale

I remember sitting on one of these at the Seattle motorcycle show when they debuted. While obviously small, the total lack of weight is really what I recall the most. That and the beautifully sculpted swingarm and frame. Like most I was disappointed that although it looked street legal, it wasn’t. It was delivered with head and tail lights, but no signals or switch. However this example has received some aftermarket blinkers and has found it’s way through the DMV. With under 400km’s, a full set of track fairings, and the metal plate on the back, you’re ready to assault suburban streets or suit up for track days. Listed with under 400km’s for just $5100 on Seattle Craigslist.

Street Legal Chicken Chaser: 2009 Aprilia RS125 in Florida

2009 Aprilia RS125 For Sale

A certain RSBFS superfan dubbed these tiny 2 strokes as “Chicken Chasers” and the name has stuck for us. While all of us wanted one of these when they were finally available here in the U.S., not being street legal made them a track day fantasy for most. If you’re not a dedicated track junkie, it was hard to justify the price for a bike you couldn’t fool around on public roads every weekend. But this one is different as it is plated, and having only 170 miles, it’s a second chance to reconsider if this is a modern two stroke for you. I know it’s not for everyone, but for those who want to blast to the store for a six pack and on the way feel like you’ve worked the bike hard within legal limits, this is a really fun one to consider.
