Unfortunately, only as a track day bike, but Aprilia will be bringing its super-light 125cc two-stroke road machine to the United States following an official announcement at Laguna Seca next week.

The RS 125 is a beautiful machine (judge for yourself), and weighs an incredibly light 264 pounds. That little 124.8cc single is potent enough to deliver 100 miles per hour through the six-speed gearbox. That is 100 pounds lighter than the lightest 600 supersport! Track day fun would be a guaranty.

Here is Aprilia's official description of the RS125. We will update you when we know about price and availability.

The RS 125 is the undisputed leader among 125 cc supersports. Aprilia has always led the field in lightweight sports bikes, pioneering new concepts and advanced solutions, and developing technology that others have had to struggle to follow. Like all Aprilia sports motorcycles, the RS 125 has benefited from the sophisticated technology that has been developed over years of success in GP racing, and quickly transferred into production. Over the years, the RS 125 has forged a reputation as the standard setter for sports 125's. Sales success has come naturally too, with the RS 125 topping the sales tables on all European markets. The RS 125 is the inevitable choice of riders entering Sport Production racing. And rightly so, because when the competition gets tough, there is simply no other bike like the Aprilia RS 125.

The Aprilia RS 125 is designed and built for technical supremacy and has the looks to match. Its graphics are totally new and based entirely on those of the bike that dominated the 2006 250 GP world championship.

The Aprilia RS 125 gives young riders the best the market has to offer in terms of components and equipment, with a concentration of technical refinements that are not found on many superbikes.

The following are just some of the main features of the Aprilia RS 125.

-Tried and tested yet extremely sophisticated Rotax two stroke engine.
-Super-rigid aluminium frame and swingarm derived from Aprilia's vast GP experience.
-Upside down fork.
-Front brake with radial caliper and four opposed pistons.
-RSV 1000 R style fairing, windshield and tail.
-RSV Factory style, crossed spoke wheels.
-Analog/digital instrument panel with multi-functional computer.
-RSV Factory style, forged steering yoke.
-Oval section racing silencer with riveted end plates.

As a smaller person who prefers something under 300 lbs. (wet) and would like to buy a motorcycle someday, this would be perfect - well maybe if it came in 250cc flavor but, it being Italian and drop dead gorgeous, you know it will be expensive.

It will have almost no chance selling. I got quoted $5,100 out the door pricing for a ninja 250. The 500 model costs that much msrp.

Sadly most states have banned the sale of two-stroke bikes under current emission laws

Personally you couldn't give me a 125cc bike. Great first bike for girls maybe, but no self respecting man would be caught dead riding a 125. Hell most wouldn't be caught dead on a 250. Having ridden 600's and 1000's for years, I can tell you, that any man over 5'9" would be crammed trying to fit on a 250. I would not want to imagine riding a 125 down the street.

I've ridden Vespa's with a bigger motor than that. You kids can keep the toys.

What?! Why? >_>

Or does it only go for bikes and not "mopeds" ?
