Hi I am really split on this one and just can't seem to make up my mind, I do not have alot of cash about 4000-5000 is all I will be able to spend, and am looking for some help choosing my first roadie. I can get hold of an 2003 Aprilia RS125 with 14000kms, for 4g, And when I rang up the aprilia bike dealership was told it could do 140kph+, I don't think this is too true for a single cyl 125?! Also how is the reliability as I will use it as a fun commuter with some spirited riding thrown in on fine weekends. And the CBR250RR The only ones I can seem to get hold of are about 1990s - 1999 models for about 4g, but with 20,000 kms on clock, hardly any service history, and I think that almost every one will have been thrashed by boy racers like me :? In my view I am leaning towards the RS125 but am split because I have heard of them popping pistons quite often, and they are expensive to maintain. So how do these bikes compare? Which one has more bite? And which one is more fun? If I still can't make up my mind, I am thinking of flying to Melbourne and buying an RGV250 and riding it up. (how much is freight?) Thanks for any help!
