MCN’s Chris Newbigging is currently at the Pomposa kart track near Venice in Italy testing Aprilia’s brand new SX125 and RX125.

Here are his first impressions after riding the Aprilia SX125:

“The SX125 is the supermoto version of Aprilia’s RX125 two-stroke trailie and, perhaps as you’d expect, it is very nimble and agile round the tight and twisty circuit.

“The revised engine is powerful for a 125 but the left hand side kick start is difficult to get used to. I’m just off to ride the RX125 so check back later for more information.’
