American fans of Aprilia rejoiced when the Italian firm announced that they would export the RS125 to the US, though it wasn’t all good news – due to EPA emissions standards, the baby RS was exclusively for closed-course riding even though it came with lights, mirrors, a horn, and everything else you’d expect to see on a street-legal machine. But if you know a guy who knows a guy, you might be able to make something happen…
Not sure that’s relevant with this bike, however, as it’s been kept as new since it was built 12 years ago and it has zero miles. In 2009, Aprilia offered a special livery (known as Spain’s No 1), a replica of the 250cc GP bike that Jorge Lorenzo won the 2007 World Championship with.
This example is VIN: ZD4RMC02C29S000014. The seller acquired it five years ago from California Speed-Sports in Dublin, California. It’s never been started and has been used as living room art. I’m very curious to find out what the next owner has planned for it, because these are some of the most fun you can have on two wheels.
