250cc special: Make room for a small one

Anonymous, 18 July 2014 12:23

There’s always been something special about quarter-litre sports bikes. A generation of learners grew up riding machines like Yamaha’s RD250LC, while wannabe GP riders could live-out their 250GP fantasies on bikes like Honda’s amazing grey import NSR250SP. And more recently those on the now superseded 33bhp licence restriction were set free on bikes like the CBR250R and Ninja 250. So ...

Aprilia RS4 125 The RS4 125 took over from the legendary RS125 in 2011, bringing four-stroke reliability to Aprilia’s 125cc sportsbikes for the first time. While many lamented the demise of the barking two-stroke that, amongst many, helped kickstart Casey Stoner’s racing career, few would miss its questionable reliability, thirst for oil and petrol and occasional irritating habit of eating ...

HMC Classic first ride

Phil West, 08 April 2013 16:04

Now here’s a seemingly good idea: one so simple and obvious you wonder why no-one’s thought of it before. Your average Chinese learner 125 is, shall we say, a tad basic and budget, right? Invariably powered by an old school, Suzuki-clone, air-cooled, four-stroke single and with cycle parts and general quality more in keeping with the stereotypical image of the ...

MCN, 06 July 2012 09:00

Making 15bhp from a tuned 50cc engine, the Rieju MRT50 Pro Competition should be the fastest 50cc bike on the road. To put that into perespective it makes the same power as the four-stroke Aprilia RS4 125 and slightly more than the Honda CBR125R. The power comes from a high performance cylinder head from Minarelli, hand made exhaust and a ...

Staff bikes: KTM Duke 125 - If you ask an expert...

Dan Aspel, 27 October 2011 16:26

In my hands the MCN award-winning 125 Duke has proved to be a reliable commuter, tourer and general muck-about bike. It has impressed me. But would it impress a half-decent rider? I handed the keys to MCN senior road tester and NW200 veteran Adam Child. After a quick blast, a few stoppies, a burn-out and valiant attempts at a wheelie, ...
