Anyone who’s serious about Grand Prix road racing knows about the Honda RS125. Originally developed in 1980 for the Grand Prix 125cc class, the RS125 has enjoyed minor updates ever since, and is still widely raced today. Riders like Capirossi, Pedrosa, and most recently Dovizioso come to mind, all having won world championships aboard the legendary RS125. I have raced minibikes myself, and despite my daily driver being a CBR600RR trackday bike, I never feel like more power is the answer. For most of us, a 300cc lightweight would do. For those of you that spend MotoGP weekends wearing leather instead of sitting on it, this could be your first taste of racing.

After leaving his bike unridden for two years, this owner has decided to part ways with his 2000 Honda RS125. It was pulled out of storage after collecting dust in Ontario, Canada, but the original motor is sold separately as the current engine is from a Kawasaki KX65. Lots of mini-moto organizations have a class for the two-stroke Kawasaki, though the motor is usually required to stay stock. The seller raced in an organization that allowed unlimited frame modifications – your future race laws may permit the same, otherwise you can swap the stock motor back in. The bottom end of the 65 was rebuilt with a new piston and rings, and only had two track days on the clock before being stored. Stands, extra wheels, tire warmers, and a parts box are included, all welcome additions to a race bike purchase.
