Aprilia RS 125 2017

The little sportswoman from Noale rediscovers her name of glory: RS. From the time when his 2-stroke mono meowed at a speed worthy of much more displacement machines. However, do not think of finding an engine with a cylinder with holes; at the heart of the aluminum perimeter frame still houses a 15 horsepower valve block.

With its RSV4 profile, the 125 RS remains one of the most attractive 1 / 8th-liter sports cars on the market. The versions since 2013 have brought an additional touch of sport, with a sweet racing scent, as well as an optional shifter; the pilot will be able to shift gears on the fly as in competition. The RS is almost practical, arguing that it can carry the equivalent of a 6-inch tablet. a USB port can be mounted, always handy for recharging a smartphone.
2017 shortens its name, but brings it new. Let’s quickly move on to the updated dashboard and adaptation to Euro4 standards to focus on braking. Because now we can count on ABS. Aprilia also worked on a full integration of the exhaust, which was hidden in the bottom of the fairing..

Genesis : This Aprilia RS 125 is truly an RSV4 Replica. And we are not exaggerating. Aprilia’s sporty 125 is a true clone of the former Superbike champion machine. Headlights, fairing, mini rear folding seat and shortened bottom, fuel tank and airbox cover, inverted fork … It’s the same. A grindstone that all youngsters will want to have; and not only them.

Compared to the old RS 125, this is a whole different generation. Today, the RS is cleaner, consumes less, requires less maintenance, and is displayed at a less toxic price. Where is the wolf? In the engine. No more ringlinglin, smoke and the tearing of vocals. In it lives a modern block with injection, double ACT and 4 valves. What? This means that… .. This generation of sports 125 from Aprilia is powered by a 4 stroke. Economy and environment gain from it, and the talent of the group’s engine manufacturers should make it fun to use. But no more phew performances. Like any 4-stroke of this engine capacity, we are only entitled to the legal maximum, ie 15 horses. Console yourself: the mechanics claim to be much more available than most mills in the segment, with minimal vibrations and reliability to match..

But don’t worry, you can get the most out of your nags with the chassis underneath. First, an aluminum perimeter frame with side members incorporating reinforcing ribs. A 41 mm fork in the pognes, inverted for rigidity. Braking is at the top of that of the 125: a radial caliper with 4 pistons on a wave format disc of 300 mm in diameter. The racing spirit is present everywhere, with an asymmetrical type swing arm, a low exhaust to lower the center of gravity and free up the rear part, and digital instrumentation modeled on that of the hypersport V4. With tires barely wider than an iPhone (*), the machine will spin from one turn to another with the speed of a beep pursued by a coyote.
Once on the crutch, the hard part remains to be done: refuse invitations to arsouille offered by owners of R1, CBR and other hypersports; because more than one would swear to have an RSV4 RR in front of them.

* Lengthwise, the iPhone. It’s not bike wheels, either….
