Hello all. So I have just recently gotten my L's and this week I dragged my poor boyfriend down to she bike shops in Ringwood for a look and see on what sort of bike I may like. One of th bike shops in Ringwood stocks Aprilias and had the new Aprilia RS125 there on display. This bike is one sexy bike, I sat on it, my boyfriend sat on it and we kinda both fell in love with it. I really liked the sporty style of it, the weight of it and the fact that there is a half decent rear tyre on it. This bike costs 10k however I came home and did some googling on the Aprlias's and am confused some what with some of the information that I have found. Those that own one can you please tell me about the engine siezing? And would it be able to handle the freeway? I suppose for the price I wouldn't want the engine to just stop working like that. Is the maintenance really that high on this bike? I have checked out the CBR125, the the weight of it was great however it didn't look too good in real life unlike the pics of it on the net. The Ninja 250 is also a possibility but I am hesitant to put a deposit down on a bike that i'm yet to see in real life. Also the fact that it's not that light either worries me. Any advice would be much appreciated.
