Video: Is Aprilia's RS4 king of sports 125s?

How quick things change. Just a few years ago if you wanted a performance 125 it had to be a two-stroke. Now the ‘ring-dingers’ have virtually disappeared, made obsolete by emissions regulations and replaced by four-strokes. Encouragingly, though, this hasn’t led to the demise of the sports 125 – in fact far from it. The 125 learner market continues to be...

I agree, you can't go wrong with the Honda. I had one but looking back only a year ago when I was 19; I struggle to see the point of sport 125s. Yeah it was slightly cool but it's just a commuter in a dress. I went to Scotland earlier this year on an FZ6 which is a bog-standard kinda 600. I couldn't have done that trip on a 125. My advice to the new and young rider is: get a good ol' low key 125 like a CG, YBR, CBF, even a Van Van for crying out loud. Save your money for a 'proper bike', then you can get down to some proper riding quicker. Please read my articles on MCN. You may find them interesting, you may not.

these bike are sheep in wolves clothing...

as for touring on a 125, ive been round the uk's coast, lands end to john o gorats. on a cbf125, does 70mph eventually, very good on petrol (118mpg i averaged).

ive clocked up 30k on my cbf allready from daily use, to and from work, and the occasional tour..infact i use it more than my 916 which probly comes out twice a week for a blast.

Pointless & expensive

Instead of one of these exercises in stupidity, just get a Sinnis Trackstar.

Much more comfy, much more versatile, much more fun.

Much cheaper too.

Go MCN Go!!!... away

Interestingly the Reiju Company were the most resourceful by pulling their engine out of a cement mixer. Teens being what they are have short memories so they won't remember the 105mph TZR's before too long. Adult riders being what they are will hit the stop button after about 1 minute of this lame Can.

NO

The two strokes still for sale.......... long live the RS 125!!!

(Speaking as a CBR125R and CBR600F owner....)

An RS 125 would annialate these bikes. so would an NSR 125, or RG125, or TZR125.

All hail the two strokes.
