For 2021, Aprilia has revamped its RS 125 and Tuono 125 models, the only 125cc bikes still made in Italy. The latest models feature a brand-new 14.8bhp four-valve single cylinder engine which is claimed to offer more torque and less-peaky power than its predecessor, as well as lower fuel consumption. This is fitted inside a  diecast aluminium frame with a 40mm upside-down front fork and a monoshock rear mounted on the asymmetric swingarm. The braking system has a new two-channel Bosch ABS operated by a radial caliper with braided brake lines, and the rear tyre is widene to 140mm for extra grip. A completely revised exhaust system is fitted to round things off. Other updates include front and rear LED lights, digital instrumentation, underseat storage big enough for an 8in tablet, and a massive (for a 125) fuel tank which can hold 14.5 litres.

 

The RS 125 is available in three liveries: Aprilia Black or Sintesi Blue for an SRP of £4600, and a GP Replica version, which comes with a seat cowl and an electronic quickshifter for £4700. The Tuono is available Aprilia Black, Lightning White and Arrow Grey for an SRP of £4500.
