For 2021, the RS 125, one of the only ‘made in Italy’ eighth-litre bike, has been profoundly revamped: new design, new and more powerful engine, digital instrumentation, new ECU and, like every big Aprilia, the exclusive aluminium frame, a guarantee of quality and effective riding.
The front end design on Aprilia RS 125 draws inspiration from that of the brand new RS 660, among the most highly anticipated and popular bikes with an aggressive and original look, emphasised by the iconic triple front light assembly. The lighting system is full LED with the front turn indicators built into the headlamps. RS 125 also stand out with it’s new, advanced, two-channel ABS, developed in collaboration with Bosch and featuring a tip-over system in the event of emergency braking. Stability and grip on turns increases thanks to the new Michelin tyres, with the rear now widened to 140 mm. The work done to improve perceived quality is clear: the aluminium frame on RS 125 now boasts a higher quality paint job, as do the engine, the footpegs and the fork yoke.
