Hi, I am a brand new rider and contrary to everybodies suggestions, i bought a brand new Aprilia RS125, now i read in some specific forums that 2 stroke engines are trouble and that the aprilia is peaky and rough at low revs and not a great commuter bike. I was just wanting to say that i have found the bike an absolute joy to ride, the engine is responsive and powerful, in a straight-line its no 1000 but the cornering speed is phenomanal. I heard to that oil and maintenance is real expensive but doenst everybody want the best for their bike regardless of what stroke it is, engine abuse is engine abuse! Being a GP bike, the position is full on, but you can get comfortable by sitting up a tad and relaxing the lower back!!! Take care everyone!!!
