What hearing yall running?
@calum haha a good diet is worth at least another 10bhp
@finnerz89 You joke mate, but that's my thoughts exactly for this Aprilia I'm building. It's a good excuse for me to get into better shape, knowing that every kilogram I lose is extra performance for my little 125.
Definitely look to build a 250 next though.

@calum I’m used to riding slow pitbikes with super short gears so I’m not the fastest and I’ve never really been on road much as I’m not legal but it pulls hard wheelies and such just the gearing is too long for my needs
@declan I'd recommend the smaller front. 1 tooth less on the front should make a big difference mate
@calum I'd love a 250 next. Something to keep as an investment but to use as well
@finnerz89 Yeah, due to the price of them, it may be a custom jobby and not a legitimate 250.
I hear the Rotax 257 engine is a straight swap into the Aprilia RS125 frame. So that may be the eventuality I take.
Otherwise, RS250 frame, with an RGV lump as they might be easier to get ahold of.
I'll figure something out for sure though.
An rs250 would be sweet as. Great project if you do go down that route with your 125.
Weren't the RS250's the Suzuki lump anyway?
I might go for either a tdr250 or the R1-Z
@finnerz89 You know the dream mate. To be fair if I were going to undertake a bigger bike, it would be the RDZ 500 and actually you know what, that would be what I'd do. I got my little Aprilia, but I wanna keep it Jap stylie!
A hybridised Yamaha R1 with the legendary RD500 lump. Ported for modern times.
Literally beauty and the beast.
@calum would be great to have a go at something like that!
@finnerz89 One day for sure mate...one day.
