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…

The Whippet: 1986 Yamaha SDR200 for Sale

1986 Yamaha SDR200 R Side Front

There’s an interesting ongoing discussion in the comments section on this site regarding exactly what qualifies as a “rare sport bike.” Bikes seem to fall into three general categories: exotics like Bimota or limited-edition Ducatis. Bikes that weren’t rare when new, but have become rare simply because good examples have become scarce through attrition, like the early GSX-R models.

But my favorite are the quirky, unusual bikes that are rarely seen outside of their home markets, or failed to find an audience when new. This Yamaha SDR200 definitely falls into that third category.

1986 Yamaha SDR200 L Rear

It’s not glamorous, or especially powerful. There are no bits of carbon bodywork, or titanium fasteners, or magnesium engine cases. It does feature a delicate, gorgeous trellis frame and swingarm combo that looks more “Maserati Birdcage” than “Ducati Monster.”

1986 Yamaha SDR200 R Side

With its three-quarters scale proportions, this bike would probably not be the best choice for many “American-sized” riders. But if you’re petite, or don’t care that you look a bit ridiculous as a big man on a little bike, this might be a perfect, unusual ride. It certainly isn’t tame: with 34bhp on tap from the two-stroke single that featured Yamaha’s YPVS power-valve system, 6 gears to play with, and only 230 pounds [dry] to push, this thing should be an absolute laugh-riot. With those skinny tires, at or near its 100mph top speed, I’m sure people you’ve passed would be convinced they’d just been blown off by a jet-powered bicycle!

1986 Yamaha SDR200 R Side Engine

From the original eBay listing: 1986 Yamaha SDR200 for Sale

This bike has 13,700km on the clock (8200 miles) but has about 500 miles on the complete restoration. I had this bike taken down to the bare frame (see pics), everything was gone through. I doubt you will ever find one like this again, it was a fun project and somewhat taxing at times finding parts but they do exist, there is a large cult following in Japan and a company that specifically specializes in SDR200s. This bike is currently registered and plated here in California good until February of 2015.

I will try to recall the best I can the mechanical here. The motor was taken apart and installed a new piston ring set and piston, base gasket, head gasket, fork seals, clutch basket, alternator gasket, oil pump gasket, water pump gasket, water pump seal, needle and seat for the carburetor, float bowl o-ring, airbox to carb boot, new triple clamp bearings, new wheel bearings, new steering bearings, new swing arm and linkage bearings, new air filter, new battery with trickle charger, and new chain. These items were replaced not because they had to be, but I wanted it new.

1986 Yamaha SDR200 Rear

It’s pretty easy to see why this thing earned the nickname “Whippet”, and tt strangely reminds me of the Sachs MadAss: there’s something playful about it. The design is fully-realized and mature, even if the bike’s raison d’être is hooliganism.

The seller is asking $6,200 which seems like a whole lot of cash for a quirky little two-stroke with no racing history, regardless of how much money he’s sunk into the restoration. On the other hand, if you are a fan of these, I’d imagine you won’t see another one this nice in the US anytime soon, and the price is fully one-tenth the price of a Ducati Panigale Superleggera, which makes it seem a bit like a bargain…

2.5 Supermono’s: Two Ducati Supermono’s and an Extra Engine

3supermonosThe Ducati Supermono is usually pure unobtainium, with only 65 units built between 1993 and 1995.  They seem to be mostly garage queens that get swapped between collectors and have appeared on RSBFS less than 10 times since the inception of the site.

As Tad D wrote back in June of this year,

“The Supermono may only have one cylinder, but it is one of the most valuable and collectible Ducatis of the modern era. And while the Supermono may lack in displacement somewhat when compared to what we’re used to seeing these days, it’s a heart-attack serious machine. With a dry weight of only 267 pounds and suspended with the best kit money could buy, including brakes from the 888, a much heavier machine. And those funny, army-green top triple clamp and the engine cases? They’re magnesium of course. And at the heart of it all, a 549cc single that started out making 65bhp at 10,500rpm.”

Supermonos usually trade around 100-150k and are more commonly seen at auction sites like Bonhams than on ebay or craigslist.  So the odds of two being for sale at the same time on the same website (Ebay) are pretty high.  Now add to that the odds of  a supermono engine also being up for sale at the same time on the same website and I think we should be looking for a Zamboni driven by a guy named Beezelbub to make an appearance sometime soon.  In any case, here they are in all their glory for us to enjoy and who knows, maybe be bought by a RSBFS reader!

SUPERMONO #14 – Location, Italy

supermono1supermon11

The first supermono is listed as a 1995 model with the 570 engine and is a very recent relist here on RSBFS.  It is located in Italy and the seller indicates it is number 14 and has never been started.  Interestingly, there do appear to be some small cracks around the bodywork.  It last sold for 145k USD but apparently the seller fell through.

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

SUPERMONO#22 – Location, Dallas TX, USA

supermono2

supermono22

The second supermono is listed as a 1993 model but has a higher serial number (22) than the one in Italy which is a bit odd.  It is located in Dallas Texas and the seller indicates it has gone through a recent rebuild and includes numerous extra parts.     Price will probably be slightly less than the 145,000 for the one in Italy given that its had a rebuild but it I expect it still be north of 110k.

NOTE:  I am currently working up in DFW and will be going to see this bike this weekend.  This will be the 2nd Supermono I have had the opportunity to see in person, the other being out at FayMeyers in Colorado.   Gotta get my drool backet back out of storage I guess – Marty/Dallaslavowner

SUPERMONO ENGINE

supermon3 supermon31

Interesting, the same seller in Dallas TX USA of number 22 is also offering a supermono engine, most likely the original from the supermono being sold.  Seller indicates rebuild is complete but asking price is 55k (yikes!).  Then again if you are spending 100k+ on a motorcycle anyways, money probably isn’t a big factor in your life and it might be good to have some stock parts tucked away.

Zero-Mile 1994 Ducati Supermono for Sale

This Ducati Supermono is the bike I wish Ducati would try to build these days. Do we really need more bikes so lethal that they will literally crawl in through your window at night with a knife in between their teeth, like the 1199 Panigale that seems to scare even professional moto-journalists? Or a road-going V4 Moto GP bike with 240hp? I mean, Ducati has a rich tradition of 250, 350, and 450cc single-cylinder performance bikes they could tap into.

KTM’s RC 390 is headed in the right direction [please come to the US, please come to the US], a small-displacement bike for experienced riders, a high-spec bike that designed to provide real thrills, not overwhelm with power.

1994 Ducati Supermono for sale on eBay

1994 Ducati Supermono Dash

What’s interesting is how this trend is relatively recent. The horsepower wars have been raging since they were won and lost by actual horses, but it’s only recently that there’s been such a dearth of legitimate sporting machines with little engines. If you’re a fan of classic sport bikes, you’ll be aware that there was a whole raft of machines that handled and stopped and were built with top-shelf components, not designed as some starter-bike for a teenager who plans to buy a Hayabusa as soon as he can figure out what color Mohawk he wants to stick on his helmet.

The Supermono may only have one cylinder, but it is one of the most valuable and collectible Ducatis of the modern era. And while the Supermono may lack in displacement somewhat when compared to what we’re used to seeing these days, it’s a heart-attack serious machine. With a dry weight of only 267 pounds and suspended with the best kit money could buy, including brakes from the 888, a much heavier machine.

1994 Ducati Supermono L Trans

Keep in mind that this was in the era before balance shafts, and a 10,000 rpm single this size was basically unheard-of. Big singles vibrate, and single-cylinder sportbikes like Bimota’s BB1 can be a numbing affair. But the Supermono had a trick up its four-valve Desmodromic sleeve: a dummy connecting rod that allowed the bike to rev as smoothly as a v-twin.

This is a seller of few words, but the bike speaks for itself: 1994 Ducati Supermono for Sale

Never used Ducati Supermono motorcycle. New fluids, radiator now dry, #33,1 of 67 built, stored in heated/air conditioned garage, perfect condition, one private owner, flawless, probably the most perfect supermono. 

1994 Ducati Supermono R Front Wheel

Styled by the controversial Pierre Terblanche, you can see echoes of his later 900SS in the jutting lower fairing. In spite of customer requests for a roadgoing example, the Ducati Supermono was a pure racebike and only 65 were ever made over the course of two years, with production ending in 1995. Designed to compete in the “Sound of Singles” race series, they epitomize what people love best about Ducati. It’s light, innovative, simple, and exotic.

And this one has exactly 0 miles.

Maybe there’s another out there that hasn’t turned a wheel, but I’d bet not as the Supermono was built to race. This would represent the most awful temptation for me. It’s a perfect machine. A giant, candy-like red button just begging to be pressed…

Hey, what’s that in the background of some of those shots? Besides the dog. Huh, looks like a Bimota DB1. I wonder if it’s for sale too…

One Year Wonder? 1986 Yamaha SRX600

SRX_600_1

This wonderful survivor – a 1986 Yamaha SRX600 single – was offered for only one short year in the United States. Utilizing a single cylinder, air cooled motor, the SRX was impossibly narrow, and very nimble and flickable. Ultimately it lost out to the multis of the day; light weight and great handling were no match for serious RPM and horsepower (think GSX-R, Ninja, FZR, VF-R, etc) – at least in the US.

SRX_600_22

The SRX actually spanned about a dozen years in various markets outside of the US, including a 400cc variant for Japan. That is a pretty good shelf life for a bike derived from the humble and lowly XT600 DP offering. This model lineup even spawned a 250cc version, which lasted just as long as its bigger brother in the States. The timing was not right, and the SRX became one of the forgotten.

SRX_600_19

From the seller:
Offered here is a VERY RARE ONE-YEAR-ONLY 1986 Yamaha SRX-6 Super Single, in VERY GOOD, VERY ORIGINAL RUNNING condition! Made for one year ONLY in 1986, the SRX-600 was Yamaha’s entry in the “retro-pseudo-British-single-cylinder-revival-market”, which apparently both Yamaha and Honda (with their GB500) had high hopes for, unfortunately it did not work out that well for either manufacturer, motorcycle buyers in 1986 were apparently not impressed, and production ceased after only one model year. Fast forward some 27 years, and now both of these minimalist, light & lean super-FUN singles are now Cult Classics and highly sought after the world over… Funny how that works! In my opinion the Yamaha SRX-6 is a better motorcycle than the GB500 – lighter, more power, better handling, plus a huge selection of after-market go-fast goodies – and it is definitely a much better value, as nice clean GB500s are regularly offered at $5-6K or more, but you can get a clean good-running SRX-6 (like this one!) for around half that amount…

This one is remarkably original and in EXCELLENT running condition – Original frame & engine, cosmetics are very nice with original bodywork in factory candy red with silver side covers, original seat cover in great shape with NO holes or tears, it even has the STOCK airbox with built-in battery tray and COMPLETE STOCK EXHAUST system with original stainless steel header pipes and HUGE factory can & heat shield, which is pretty much unheard of since almost all of these stock cans were immediately tossed in the dumpster and replaced by a lightweight Super Trapp or something similar. As far as I can tell, the only things on this bike that are not original are the mirrors, the bar ends and the very tasty Progressive Suspension rear shocks!

SRX_600_9

The seller has also shared the good, the bad and the ugly.

From the seller:
There is a short list of issues that need to be pointed out, so I will get them out of the way: The tank had some rust and a few pinholes (shown in the photos below) when I got it, so it has been thoroughly cleaned and lined with POR-15; there is some light pitting on the top part of the fork tubes, between the two triple clamps – the seal travel area of both tubes is flawless, with NO pitting, scoring or wear in the chrome; the previous owner shot some rattle-can silver on the engine covers (his attempt to “deal with” the usual discoloration and clear coat peeling); there is no “SRX-6” sticker on the right side cover; the left front turn signal body is cracked; there are some dings on the speedo bezel; the rear seat cowl has some sun fading; and lastly the only mechanical issue that I am aware of is some clutch slip under very heavy throttle (this is a simple adjustment, just requires removal of the outer cover, I have not gotten to this but I do have the cover gaskets, which will go to the winning bidder)…

On the upside, the following work has been done within the past 6 months: New drive chain along with new countershaft & rear wheel sprockets; new steering head bearings; new fork seals & fork oil; valves adjusted; carbs cleaned & adjusted; engine oil & filter changed… Mechanically, this bike is in great shape – actual mileage on odometer shows 21,260 miles (and counting), relatively low mileage for a 27 year old bike, and with regular oil changes these engines (also used in the XT600 dual sport Yammies) are known to be pretty much indestructible. The SRX-6 is kick-start only – as you surely know – and this one is an easy starter when hot or cold, once you master the thumper starting drill… NO unusual engine noises, NO smoke, engine performs flawlessly up & down the rev range and wow does this engine love to REV! Clutch, transmission, suspension, brakes and all electrics work great, this bike is WAAAAYYYYYY FUN, no doubt about it! Both tires are very good – bottom line is this bike needs nothing other than the clutch adjustment in order to be ridden, and ridden HARD if you are so inclined!

Sold with clean California title in previous owner’s name, last registered in 2001, no longer in the DMV system here in California… As a bonus the winning bidder will also get a genuine Yamaha Factory Workshop Manual and a stack of NOS gaskets!!!

SRX_600

The SRX was noted as a ton of fun to ride – and I would imagine that is the same today as it was 27 years ago. The British look is back in style, and here you have a cafe racer of sorts that doesn’t need to be modified or hacked to achieve the look. Who knowns – something like this might even appreciate in the coming years. The current bid on this one is only $999 with reserve still in place. This one just might turn out to be lots of fun for not too much cash. Check it out here!

WSB Connection: 1981 DCM (Dave Camier Motorcycles) Honda 500

WSB Connection: 1981 DCM (Dave Camier Motorcycles) Honda 500

If you are Leon Camier, I guess you were bound to end up in motorcycle racing when your dad was building race bikes before you were even born. For the motorsports challenged, Leon Camier is a former BSB champion, alum of the Aprilia WSB team and current member of the Crescent Suzuki WSB team.

Your truly had never heard of DCM before seeing this bike on Ebay UK so all this info is borrowed from those in the know on the internets and mostly from this excellent post on the SR500 Forum.  Check it out, it is jam packed with photos of a build.

DCM’s were produced from the late seventies until the early eighties.  They produced the chassis and wrapped them around either a Yamaha or Honda single engine.  Early bikes featured a Yamaha like Monoshock system and later bikes got a more modern rising rate linkage system.  Basically a hand built singles racer to order.  The seller does  mention that some street versions were produced as well.

 

 

Don’t frown, the seller says overseas buyers are welcome.

DCM (Dave Camier Motorcycles) Honda XR500 single cylinder race bike, CRMC registered (Post classic 500cc air-cooled)


A rare opportunity to buy one of Leon Camier’s dad’s creations!

Dave Camier built frames initially for TZ Yamaha’s (these were mostly under the JCM name) before the untimely death of his partner meant the company name became DCM.
Single cylinder racing was popular at the time (as it continues to be today), which led him to manufacture frames for big Honda and Yamaha singles, for road use as well as racing, the chassis number of this one is DCMV481, making it the 4th chassis he manufactured in 1981
Powder coated frame (made from T45 tubing)
Astralite wheels, 
TZ 35mm forks & yokes, 
Early three-rib Lockheed calipers on genuine Spondon hangers,
Spondon floating front disc, 
Scitsu rev counter, 
Tomaselli throttle,
De-Carbon rear shock, 
DID gold 520 race chain, 
Lectron 40mm flat slide carburettor
steering damper, 
Cosworth piston
gas flowed head etc

 

If you likey, here is an article from back in the day on DCM.

 

 

When things were a lot more simple.  The bike is listed as a classified ad with an asking price of roughly $4,700 (2,295 British Pounds).

She’s Italian, Exotic And Single: 1991 Gilera Saturno Bialbero

She’s Italian, Exotic And Single: 1991 Gilera Saturno Bialbero

 

Boy, this is a a bike I didn’t expect to do a post on twice.  The first Saturno Bialbera I posted was located in PA; unfortunately for us in the New World this bike is located in the Netherlands.  You can’t be an isolationist though if you yearn for one of these as less than 1100 Saturno Bilbero’s were produced and most of them were exported to Japan.

The bike came about  from a direct collaboration between Gilera and its’ Japanese importer.  I think they got it right but maybe were too early to cash in on the retro craze.  It’s a damn good looking little bike with a nice mix of modern and retro design.  I’m not sure I’d hold out hope for a 2.0 version either as Gilera only produces scooters now.  Yawn.

 

It must have been hiding in a collection as it only has 11 miles.  The seller states he would be willing to assist with worldwide shipping if you are tempted.

 

You might remember Marco Simmoncelli raced a Gilera badged  Aprilia  in the GP’s.  It appears the small number that were imported into the UK sold for approxiametley 5000 British Pounds.  That was more than the average 600 of the day.

 

 

I wonder how a nice looking and smartly priced single would sell in the United States right now.  We don’t have a good track record of buying them.  The engine is a spin off of Gilera’s Dakota engine, which from what little I can find, is nice solid engine.

 

Brush up on your Dutch and place a bid here.

 

This isn’t the bike for sale but at least you get a little sound of the engine.  I want to know where this shop is in Japan.  The poster has quite a few videos of exotic bikes that come and stop by.

The Italian-Japanese Connection: 1992 Gilera Saturno Bialbero

The Italian-Japanese Connection: 1992 Gilera Saturno Bialbero

I think we have the understatement of the day from the seller of this bike.

Here’s one that you don’t see every day,if at all in the USA

 

Gilera isn’t a household name and this particular model is another one of those bikes that I didn’t know even existed until finding this auction.  The Saturno Bialbero was born from a collaboration between Gilera and their Japanese importer.  The result was an ultra light weight single.  You’ve probably never seen one because only 1100 were produced and most were sold in Japan.  A few made it to the UK and at least two made it to the USA.

 

The engine is a larger version of Derbi’s “Dakota” engine, a 4 valve 350cc single.  It was enlarged to 492cc and stuck in the trellis frame you see.  Power output is claimed to be 45hp.  Not that impressive until you consider the bike only weighs 330 lbs.

Other goodies include Marzocchi suspension and Brembo brakes.  Wheels are brought to you by Marvic.  Pretty cool little bike if you ask me.  Basically Derbi’s version of a modern cafe racer.

The story from the auction:

Here’s one that you don’t see every day,if at all in the USA!You are bidding on what might be the ultimate modern big single-a 1992 Gilera Saturno “Bialbero” in great condition.I have never seen another one stateside,although they do pop up in the UK & Germany,along with Italy & Japan once in awhile.This particular bike has a clear Pennsylvania title,and runs very strong!

I obtained this bike,along with another matching bike that was converted to a race bike,back in May of 2009′ from a broker on Long Island.He was selling the pair for the widow of the owner who had these shipped over from the UK to his summer home here in the states.After passing away,she enlisted his help in selling these,and I purchased both.After a couple of winters,I am happy to say that this street model is ready for many summers to come.Please bid responsibly,and any withdrawn bids will be blocked from further bidding.

This particular bike was gone through last winter after all the fluids had been changed,along with the timing belt.At that point,she fired up immediately,and pulled strong.This past spring,when leaving the house,I noticed a “knocking” sound,which turned out to be a bad bottem end bearing.Time for a rebuild.I had the motor completely gone through by one of the premier mechanics in Western PA.,and he rebuilt the motor from the bottem end up.New crank,rod seals,valves,springs,etc. which were sourced from Bob Wright Motorcycles in the UK(Thanks Bob!).He has practically everything for these,and gets the parts to your door within a week!Everything else was measured for tolerance during the rebuild,and she now runs as she should.I have put about 150 miles on her since,with no issues.All receipts and documentation are included.The only mod from original was the addition of a K & N filter to replace the airbox,but I have the original one that goes with it.The bikes mileage is actually in kilometers(22,769),which converts to 14,148 miles.

Cosmetically,the bike looks great-a solid 9 out of 10.These bikes are one of the most beautful bikes ever produced,and you can spend hours just looking at the details.It really is a “poor man’s Bimota”.The bodywork is very clean,and there are some scratches here & there on the frame,but nothing that distracts.The Marvic wheels have a little fade to the red paint,but they all do that.It is definatelly too nice to have the bike repainted,and I wanted to keep it as original as possible.The mirrors on the fairing were replaced with a pair of Napoleans,as the originals were MIA.

The bike has both electric & kick start,and both work great.The front brake is a full floater(Brembo Goldline),and the rear is the original Grimeca.Braided stainless lines front & brear.Factory aluminum rearsets & clipons give the bike a nice tucked in stance,and she handles like she is on a rail.Pirelli tires have plenty of tread left.All lights,signals,switches work great,and the bike recently had it’s PA State inspection.

If interested,I will offer the winning bidder the opportunity to purchase the converted race bike,as there are a lifetime supply of spares with it including an aluminum alloy race tank,along with another rebuilt crank assembly.I’m sure that we can work out a deal!

 

Did you catch the end there?  The winning bidder will get first dibs on buying the converted race Saturno Bialbero the seller has.

I know I’m in the minority here in the States but I love little bikes.  I wish there were more of us out there so  the manufactures would take a chance on a high spec,  small cc bike like this one (Supermono anyone?).  There are a few of us that love cc challenged bikes as the bidding is quite active on this bike.  .
