- Not street legal
- Lighter than the road-legal Aprilia RS 125
- To be used in Italian FMI Aprilia Sport Production Championship
Aprilia has announced the prices for its track-focused motorcycle, the RS250 SP. The quarter-litre motorcycle will be sold in Italy for 9,700 euro (plus VAT). The vehicle made its debut as the 2019 EICMA motorcycle show.
This race-spec motorcycle, which was designed in collaboration with Ohvale, is targeted to budding motorcycle racers. It’s equipped with premium hardware such as Brembo-sourced braking setup, Öhlins-sourced upside-down telescopic front forks and a rear mono-shock and an SC-Project exhaust system. The lightweight, 17-inch Marchesini wheels on the RS250 SP are shod with Pirelli-sourced tyres.
Being a racetrack-focussed motorcycle, the Aprilia RS250 SP skips road-legal hardware such as headlights, taillight, turn indicators and rear-view mirrors. The RS250 SP is 35kg lighter than the street-legal Aprilia RS125.
Mechanical specifications include a 250cc, single-cylinder, four-stroke engine. The bike exploits all the know-how and technology of the Noale Racing Department.
The RS250 SP will be used in the Italian FMI Aprilia Sport Production Championship. Young riders, starting from eleven years old, will ride the motorcycle. The new championship was previously scheduled to start in 2020, although the Coronavirus pandemic may force the authorities to move it ahead.
