An adult look for young passion
The Aprilia RS 125 Replica GP’s keeps an aggressive and original look that is highlighted by the triple headlight, a trademark of the ‘big sister’. The sleek fairing enhances the exclusive aluminium frame, an entirely racing-inspired refinement that no competitor can claim. A winning solution that Aprilia takes from its experience on the track to reduce weight and bulk and give the vehicle textbook agility and handling. The tapering lines of the slender tail fairing seem to melt away into nothing, joined together with the LED taillight that, in the spirit of road safety, guarantees outstanding lighting power.
The latest version of the Aprilia RS 125 also boasts the largest storage compartment in its segment, a space that can hold a 6″ tablet. A practical USB port can also be mounted to conveniently recharge your smartphone or any other compatible device.
Technological beating heart
The beating heart of the Aprilia RS 125 Replica GP is a modern and technological 125 cc single-cylinder, 4-Stroke, 4-Valve electronic injection engine with liquid cooling: reliable on the road and powerful on the track, it has particularly refined technologies such as double overhead camshaft timing (DOHC). With ultra-modern conception and design, lightweight and compact, it has allowed development of a refined chassis. Its power, optimally calibrated, guarantees responsiveness even at low revs. Vibrations are reduced to the minimum by a balancing countershaft. Euro 4 approved, it guarantees environmentally-friendly top performance.
The Aprilia RS 125 GP Replica is installation-ready for Quick Shift, the innovative gear shifting system that Aprilia has used and perfected on tracks all over the world. Just like with its big sister, the RSV4, the electronic system manages torque interruption for the engaged gear change, how far the throttle is open and the engine revs, allowing the rider to upshift while holding the throttle open and without using the clutch. The exhaust, which is unmistakably racing inspired, is completely integrated within the lower part of the fairing. A solution with a strong aesthetic impact that effects the dynamic performance of the vehicle, based on the centralisation of the masses.
Unique ergonomics, benchmark chassis

The riding position on the RS 125 Replica GP is unique: the semi-handlebars, forward-mounted lower than the steering yoke and the set-back footpegs, along with the saddle-fuel tank assembly, ensure a true super sport riding position without compromise. Developed on the basis of Aprilia’s experience on the track, the spectacular perimeter frame consists of die cast aluminium spars with crossed reinforcement ribs. It is a lightweight structure, capable of providing high torsional rigidity in order to guarantee top performance on the road and on the track.
The solid upside-down fork and the rear suspension with racing-derived monoshock secured to the asymmetrical swingarm ensure performance, top level safety and comfort. The split 6-spoke design of the wheels emphasizes the purposeful character of the RS 125. A configuration that is once again merit of racing experience that ensures light weight and speed going into corners. The braking system uses a four-piston radial calliper on the front wheel, assisted by Bosch single-channel ABS, that grips a 300 mm diameter steel disc. The rear mounts a single-piston calliper that grips a 220 mm disc and has a tone wheel to guarantee anti roll over protection. Maximum performance and safety at every braking point. The license plate mount and turn indicators can be easily removed for track use.
The new lightweight and compact dashboard is fully equipped with racing-like features. From the analogue tachometer to the multifunctional digital display that comes complete with a speedometer, a trip master unit, top speed, coolant-temperature gauge and a fuel reserve warning light, OBD indicator, failing ABS warning light.
