The Aprilia RS125 b da mutts. Sharpest, best handling bike of any type. Shit loads of power to weight ratio, fantastic brakes. Some of the most worn out knee sliders we see here are from guys who know how to ride their RS125 properly. Aggressive, decisive, and with plenty of character to express its dynamic, lightweight nature in a personal, unique style that typifies Italian passion for motorbike racing.

Aprilia 125 Tuono
Aprilia RS125 Pista track-only bike
In full power trim, avoid straight roads and nobody will get near you. The Aprilia RS125 is truely great fun; there's hardly any need to brake in the twisties. But 115mph and only 125cc, means we're not talking about the longest lived engines in the world. The rs125 does go bang if you're silly enough to hold the throttle open for long enough.
If you're sensible and treat it as an 80mph bike and occasionally play, it'll last you for ages. After a few miles of fun roll the throttle off and let it cool down for a bit: then play again. Another thing RS125 owners get caught out by is cold seizure; allow the bike to warm up properly. The temperature gauge may show the engine warming up, but as it warms to the point that the thermostat opens, cold water is pumped from the radiator around the engine shrinking it onto the pistons. This is particularly a problem on cold, frosty days. Start your bike up before you put on your gear, and then pull away at half throttle for the first couple of miles. Be realistic about the running costs of this true racer, it's advisable to budget for top end rebuilds every 10,000 miles costing around £750, including new barrels, and using genuine Aprilia parts.
Be cautious about buying second-hand. Typical scenario: Seller buys a restricted RS125 rides it around for a while, passes his test, derestricts it and rides for a further two years until he's allowed to buy a rsvr mille and come and play with the big boys. It's now three years old, and he takes it to his Aprilia dealer as part exchange. The dealer points out that it now needs £1,000 spent on an engine rebuild and other work to bring it up to the standard required for an Aprilia dealer to put on his forecourt. Sellers says, OK, cash price on the RSV Mille and I'll sell it privately through the paper. Private buyer comes along and two months further down the line, surprise surprise, it goes bang. Look for an Aprilia full service history and evidence that the seller has been using the best quality oil.
With the Aprilia RS125 you get 2 bikes in one. First the learner legal 125, power restricted. That's how we recommend you ride it on your L-plates. If you want to go faster, do your f*cking test. The Police aren't stupid, they know when you've derestricted, it's really easy to tell. At the first service after you've passed your test, ask your Aprilia dealer about your options for derestriction. The cost is between £50 and £350, depending on what bits are already on your bike and what you want.
Then, for years the rs125 has been unbeaten on the 125 Sport Production racing circuit. The rs125 comes in two versions, GP-One Replica and SBK Replica, both destined to reinforce the market leadership of the rs125, Europe's best selling road sports bike.
The Aprilia rs125 brings the under 18 rider the best the European motorbike market has to offer in terms of equipment and technology. The sporty lines of this bike are the result of painstaking design and advanced aerodynamic research. Fruit of extensive wind tunnel testing, the aerodynamic form ensures total protection and minimum air resistance, giving a whole series of advantages including reduced fuel consumption and optimised performance under all conditions. The aerodynamic fairing and windshield, with integrated hand guards to eliminate all turbulence, allow the rider to really make the most of the incredible speed and performance of this bike. The styling of the front mudguard matches the rest of the bodywork. The rs125 is proof that perfect aerodynamics mean stability and safety at high speed. The headlight cluster features a multi-focal double lamp unit and gives the bike an original, eye-catching appearance. Naturally, as well as looking good, the headlight cluster also adds to active safety during nighttime riding and guarantees instant visibility in the day. The tail not only improves aerodynamic penetration but also incorporates a spacious lockable storage compartment to house items like locks and rain proofs The passenger seat is integrated in the tail to avoid spoiling the clean, streamlined lines of the bike. The tail is mounted on an extremely lightweight rear frame. The fuel tank has a capacity of 14 litres, and gives exceptional autonomy. Not only, but its perfect shape allows the rider to hug the bike like a leech.
The five spoke wheels look sporty but are also lightweight, reliable and safe. The competition standard braking system features a 320 mm front disk with a four piston caliper, and a 220 mm diameter rear disk. The suspensions play a fundamental role in ensuring top level performance, safety and comfort. The Aprilia rs125 is equipped with a 40 mm Ø upside down hydraulic action telescopic fork, with adjustable spring preload and wheel travel of 120 mm. The front fork is one of the winning cards taken from the Aprilia 125 Challenge Trophy. The rear suspension's hydraulic monoshock has also been developed on the basis of racing experience and features adjustable preload too. The aluminium alloy swing-arm gives the rs125 the best torsional rigidity of all production 125 cc bikes. Differential member design permits the swing-arm to pass close to the bike's body. This permits bends to be tackled at greater angles without the risk of dangerous grounding. The aluminium alloy perimeter beam frame gives exceptional torsional rigidity and light weight.
Its design is the reference point for all our competitors. Here again, the transfer of knowledge and technology from the track to the road is typical of Aprilia's approach to quality, technology and safety. Extensive wind tunnel testing has led to a globally improved CX for this already aerodynamic motorbike, and has optimised even further the performance of its 125 cc two stroke engine. This advanced power unit features water cooling, balancing countershaft, exhaust control valve and reed intake for riding pleasure and constant power. The aluminium silencer complements the bike's styling and is highly efficient in maximising engine power and minimising noise. rs125 is equipped with a catalytic exhaust in compliance with EURO 1 specifications.
This sporting Aprilia is available in two versions: the rs125 for newly licensed riders with power limited to 11 kW and the rs125 kat Euro 1 full power. A conversion kit can be fitted to the 11 kW version to convert it to full power at a later stage.
The side stand safety system is another extremely important feature. A safety switch prevents the bike being started up and ridden off with the stand down.
The racing style instruments not only look good but are also easy to read. The dashboard includes speedometer, rev counter and coolant temperature gauge to allow the rider to keep all important parameters under control. The speedometer can be removed quickly and easily for track use.

There are 5 positions filled on every volleyball team at the elite level. Setter, Outside Hitter/Left Side Hitter, Middle Hitter, Opposite Hitter/Right Side Hitter and Libero/Defensive Specialist. Each of these positions plays a specific, key role in winning a volleyball match.
- Setters have the task for orchestrating the offense of the team. They aim for second touch and their main responsibility is to place the ball in the air where the attackers can place the ball into the opponents' court for a point. They have to be able to operate with the hitters, manage the tempo of their side of the court and choose the right attackers to set. Setters need to have swift and skillful appraisal and tactical accuracy, and must be quick at moving around the court.
- Liberos are defensive players who are responsible for receiving the attack or serve. They are usually the players on the court with the quickest reaction time and best passing skills. Libero means 'free' as they have the ability to substitute for any other player on the court during each play. They do not necessarily need to be tall, as they never play at the net, which allows shorter players with strong passing and defensive skills to excel in the position and play an important role in the team's success. A player designated as a libero for a match may not play other roles during that match. Liberos wear a different color jersey than their teammates.
- Middle blockers or Middle hitters are players that can perform very fast attacks that usually take place near the setter. They are specialized in blocking, since they must attempt to stop equally fast plays from their opponents and then quickly set up a double block at the sides of the court. In non-beginners play, every team will have two middle hitters.
- Outside hitters or Left side hitters attack from near the left antenna. The outside hitter is usually the most consistent hitter on the team and gets the most sets. In accurate first passes usually result in a set to the outside hitter rather than middle or opposite. Since most sets to the outside are high, the outside hitter may take a longer approach, always starting from outside the court sideline. In non-beginners play, there are again two outside hitters on every team in every match.
- Opposite hitters or Right side hitters carry the defensive workload for a volleyball team in the front row. Their primary responsibilities are to put up a well formed block against the opponents Outside Hitters and serve as a backup setter. Sets to the opposite usually go to the right side of the antennae.
The three standard volleyball formations are known as "4-2", "6-2" and "5-1", which refers to the number of hitters and setters respectively. 4-2 is a basic formation used only in beginners' play, while 5-1 is by far the most common formation in high-level play.
The 4-2 formation has four hitters and two setters. The setters usually set from the middle front or right front position. The team will therefore have two front-row attackers at all times. In the international 4-2, the setters set from the right front position. The international 4-2 translates more easily into other forms of offense.
The setters line up opposite each other in the rotation. The typical lineup has two outside hitters. By aligning like positions opposite themselves in the rotation, there will always be one of each position in the front and back rows. After service, the players in the front row move into their assigned positions, so that the setter is always in middle front. Alternatively, the setter moves into the right front and has both a middle and an outside attacker; the disadvantage here lies in the lack of an offside hitter, allowing one of the other team's blockers to "cheat in" on a middle block.
The clear disadvantage to this offensive formation is that there are only two attackers, leaving a team with fewer offensive weapons.
Another aspect is to see the setter as an attacking force, albeit a weakened force, because when the setter is in the front court they are able to 'tip' or 'dump', so when the ball is close to the net on the second touch, the setter may opt to hit the ball over with one hand. This means that the blocker who would otherwise not have to block the setter is engaged and may allow one of the hitters to have an easier attack.
In the 6-2 formation, a player always comes forward from the back row to set. The three front row players are all in attacking positions. Thus, all six players act as hitters at one time or another, while two can act as setters. So the 6-2 formation is actually a 4-2 system, but the back-row setter penetrates to set.
The 6-2 lineup thus requires two setters, who line up opposite to each other in the rotation. In addition to the setters, a typical lineup will have two middle hitters and two outside hitters. By aligning like positions opposite themselves in the rotation, there will always be one of each position in the front and back rows. After service, the players in the front row move into their assigned positions.
The advantage of the 6-2 is that there are always three front-row hitters available, maximizing the offensive possibilities. However, not only does the 6-2 require a team to possess two people capable of performing the highly specialized role of setter, it also requires both of those players to be effective offensive hitters when not in the setter position. At the international level, only the Cuban National Women's Team employs this kind of formation. It is also used in Women's NCAA play, partially due to the variant rules used which allow 12 substitutions per set (as opposed to the 6 allowed in the standard rules).
The 5-1 formation has only one player who assumes setting responsibilities regardless of his or her position in the rotation. The team will therefore have three front-row attackers when the setter is in the back row, and only two when the setter is in the front row, for a total of five possible attackers.
The player opposite the setter in a 5-1 rotation is called the opposite hitter. In general, opposite hitters do not pass; they stand behind their teammates when the opponent is serving. The opposite hitter may be used as a third attack option (back-row attack) when the setter is in the front row: this is the normal option used to increase the attack capabilities of modern volleyball teams. Normally the opposite hitter is the most technical skilled hitter of the team. Back-row attacks generally come from the back-right position (position 1), but are increasingly performed from back-center in high-level play.
The big advantage of this system is that the setter always has 3 hitters to vary sets with. If the setter does this well, the opponent's middle blocker may not have enough time to block with the outside hitter, increasing the chance for the attacking team to make a point.
There is another advantage: when the setter is a front-row player, he or she is allowed to jump and "dump" the ball onto the opponent's side. This too can confuse the opponent's blocking players: the setter can jump and dump or can set to one of the hitters. A good setter knows this and thus won't only jump to dump or to set for a quick hit, but as well to confuse the opponent.
The 5-1 offense is actually a mix of 6-2 and 4-2: when the setter is in the front row, the offense looks like a 4-2; when the setter is in the back row, the offense looks like a 6-2.
