Aprilia has recently unveiled the 2021 iteration of the RS 125 for the international markets. The 2021 Aprilia RS 125 features several styling and mechanical revisions, and here we explain all the details about the motorcycle.
The similarities between the new generation RSV4 and the new RS660 are instantly evident, and the 2021 Aprilia RS 125 gets the twin-pod LED headlight setup at the front. The headlight cowl has also received styling changes. Similar to the rest of the RS-series models, the RS 125, too, uses a full-fairing design and a clip-on style handlebar. Aprilia has raised the handlebar by 18mm to deliver an improved riding position. Other styling cues include a muscular fuel tank, split-style seats, and a compact exhaust canister.
The motorcycle has been listed in two colour options – Aprilia Black and Sintesi Blue. Both paint options feature similar graphics. The RS 125 is also available in a GP Replica version with an Aprilia MotoGP RS-GP inspired livery.
The 2021 Aprilia RS 125 comes equipped with premium features such as full-LED lighting and a new backlit digital dashboard. The instrument cluster is Bluetooth-compatible and it connects with the Aprilia MIA smartphone application. Moreover, a quick-shifter is part of the optional extras. The safety-net on the motorcycle is handled by a dual-channel ABS.
The mechanical specifications on the 2021 Aprilia RS 125 include a Euro5-compliant, 125cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that produces 15bhp of power at 10,750rpm.
The hardware on the 2021 Aprilia RS 125 include upside-down front forks and a rear monoshock to perform the suspension tasks. The anchoring duties are performed by single discs on both wheels while the safety-net, as mentioned above, includes a dual-channel ABS. The motorcycle rides on 17-inch alloy wheels.
