Even RSBFS is not immune to a little mission-creep, as our last two “stocking stuffer” posts were Aprilia RS50’s ! Anyway this late and low-mile if lightly documented RS125 looks like just the suggestion for your future ex- this holiday season.
Aprilia’s RS125 was introduced in 1992, and the 2009 came midway through the fourth generation. By this time the RS125 was an RSV1000R lookalike, with twin headlights, four-piston front caliper, and Piaggio ECU to help meet Euro-3 emissions. Power was great for a 125 at 28 hp, and alloy wheels were both 17’s. The No.1 livery commemorated Jorge Lorenzo’s 125cc championship.
Not too many photos or words accompany this auction, but the second oil change miles and original condition speak volumes. From the eBay auction:
2009 Aprilia RS125, two stroke, SC title, runs great, excellent condition, fun to ride. Not too many of these in the US. I have the bike listed locally and will remove ad if sold locally.
A number of current MotoGP starters have history with an Aprilia RS125, and while the sub-300 lb. weight might favor a youngster, anyone who wears mediums and wants to work on keeping the revs up through a corner will find joy in the RS125. Aprilia brought a lot of the sophistication of their race bikes across to the showroom, with pricing to match their mid-size performance. For a bike whose only purpose is fun, the asking price and condition are downright sensible…
