  2. I'd say don't waste your money on a new Aprilia. You'll only have it 12-18 months and will wear a fair wack of depreciation.
    Just buy one second hand, most people who buy them (buy for pose factor) don't do high kilometres.

  7. Can't stand the sound of the 125 :(

    But yeah, I'd go for the white. I prefer the stealthy rebelliousness of black too, but white will get you seen better.

    But why get a rs125. Its not exactly the most comfortable bike, and its not that fast either.

  13. No wonder you got the rs125. i dont think it will be too much for you. 2strokes are not as difficult as everyone makes them out to be. My RGV is my first road bike and it not overly difficult to control.
    Enjoy the powerband.

  14. Actually, most of the criticism I hear of two strokes is not about the power dynamics (lets face it, you can get accustomed to anything) but the maintenance issues. I spend a fair bit of time around two stroke motors and find that that they are reliable if you are prepared to put in the hard yards and maintain them properly. Four stroke engines are a lot more forgiving in this respect (but naturally, still need maintenance! They just require less frequent maintenance)

  16. As dear departed kishi would have said, once you've had black you can never go back.

    Black looks awsome.

  17. Is it just me? Silver/black/scarlett fairing looks heaps better than light brown/black/scarlett one.

    If you're a rockstar or have rich parents or have won a lottery, ignore those folks who tell you to buy a recently rebuilt RS250 or a POS.

  20. well rs125 is bit over the price but i guess if u just enjoy the bike then i guess u willing 2 put up wit anything tat goes on wit it... if u find the passion for the bike i guess it really take away the money factor.
    love it, enjoy it, ride it!
    hehehe
