bought a second hand rs this was a big jump from my sluggish 4stroke ybr, had to have a top end rebuild after 2 and half days, im guessing this is why the previous owner sold it as they knew what was going to happen, luckily i didn't have to pay for it as it was under warrenty. since then i have ridden the bike everyday for the past 6 months with no problems, the only downside is the money that it costs to keep it running, loves to drink petrol other than that can't fault it… Read Full Review

I purchased a brand new sbk model rs4 125 as a commuter and city run around. I could not be happier with the bike. In the past ive owned various gsxr 750s 1000s and a couple of ktms but I was looking for something for short commutes and running around town on with better economy and running costs. This is a great little bike with big bike feel to it its been ultra reliable and soooo much fun to ride with thequick shifter and being light wieght you can really throw it around and it cruises at 73… Read Full Review

Bought a restricted 06 model used, firstly for what it is it's a very quick bike. With my 14 stone on it would easily do about 80mph restricted, it's also so light that you can throw it into corners and lean it back fairly easily even if your inexperienced; this is also why it seems so quick.
Reliability wise it's what you'd expect from a GP rep sports bike, after 500 miles on mine the crank oil seal went, which cost 400 pounds for bottom end rebuild as you cannot remove the swingarm locknut to… Read Full Review

Excellent bike, great fun, keeps up with larger bikes through corners.Would recomend as it is a great step before jumping onto a superbike. Clutch cable has been an issue as I was stupid enough to buy cheap of ebay.Other than that it has never let me down. So long as you keep on top of the oil situation. Use fully synthetic injector as well as engine oil. Requires a Change of engine oil frequently. I use castrol… Read Full Review

Originally, I wanted a 4 stroke sports 125. Like Yamaha's YZF R125 or the new Megelli 125R. After having to put up with that falsetto-pitched 2 stroke noise for two years, I began to realize how much I'd appreciate something with a little grunt. However, both of these are over £2000 - even for a second hand one, and I'm eighteen at college. I don't have that sort of money.
So, after biting my tongue over the entire maintenance/reliability relationship issues 2 strokes have, I decided to buy an… Read Full Review

Bought my bike from a dealer brand new! This has to be the safest way to buy this bike! Very quick even though mine wasn't de-restricted, they are ways to fully de-restrict these and the newer bikes. Just look on forums for details and how-to's.
Always used fully synthetic oil, and used 98RON fuel, i.e Shell Optimax. You must let these engines warm up before you ride them to stop cold seizures, everybody knows this. Never had a problem starting mine, and in the 4000km's nothing went wrong -… Read Full Review

aprilia rs 125 give me the confident in riding the sport bike and also in future for me to upgrade to big cc bike. The bike handling is superb even the braking system and the bike is too fast for beginners. But its will make you more skillful on the road… Read Full Review

Do your research before buying a new Aprilia RS125FP. I bought one and soon realised that the bike no longer produces 30 bhp+ and can not go at 100mph+. The forever tightening emissions laws restict the performance to 85mph and 10600rpm. There are tuning parts available like racing exaushsts and larger caburettors and so on but there is no point in fitting any of these parts unless you remap the ECU and as far as I am aware of an after market ECU that will let the bike rev over 10600rpm is only… Read Full Review

nice handling bike, very quick for a 125cc,good brakes.
but all these good point's are cancelled out by the bad.
not a day went by without my aprilia giving me a new problem to sort out- before people shout at me for not looking after her i ran her on full symthetic oil,she had a full rebuild when i brought her, and was never ragged because my mate owned her.
list of the problems included- the ignition barrel packing in (i had to hot wire her to get her home), multiple electrical fault's, faulty… Read Full Review
