Finding a plated modern RS125 is hard enough in the United States, but this example stands out even further thanks to the fact that it has just 389 miles. It does beg the question – what would you do with a bike like this? It’s best on a track but it’ll lose value with every miles. Are these collectible enough to sit on display? I’d vote no, but you tell me!
The ’09 RS125 was the first year Aprilia exported this bike directly to the USA, but due to EPA emissions standards it was exclusively for closed-course use despite the lights/mirrors/etc. The 125cc 2-stroke engine is a Rotax unit, and fueling was handled by a 2mm Dell’orto carb. Dry weight was just 280 pounds and while it seems like a tiny bike, the ergonomics aren’t bad for bigger riders, either. MSRP was $5,499.

This example was stored as a display piece by the previous owner but the fluids were flushed and the carb’s been cleaned so it’s ready for someone to ride this in anger again! Extras include a Arrow full exhaust that’s been Jet-Hot coated, Delta 3 V-Force reeds, and a 415 o-ring chain. All stock parts are included.
