ye i got a honda xr 125l in the end, would have a rs125 but there are none up my way. i have got a rs50 but i melted the piston rings and seized the engine too . but apart from that it has been a good bike to me

best 125 on the road at the moment in my opinion is a honda nsr 125 ( i g ot 110 out of mine ) looks like a 400
dont bother with cheap chinese imports either....aprilla 125s have engine probs...hyosungs look the part but **** in this countrys weather ( brill in dry countrys )
look on bay for thr nsr 125 they are the real 125 superbikes

Not true, the aprillia 125's have hardly any engine problems. The only thing that happens is the earth wire sometimes comes loose. Thats simple. The rs125 is a pretty reliable bike.

Also the full power rs125 can top 110/115.

Depends on how you're gonna ride it though, I know a lad that had 2 RS125s.

Blew the piston in his first one and the second one basically had a total internal explosion. But he did redline it everywhere all the time.

Riding it at full chat really shouldn't be an issue IF it was warmed up correctly each time it was ridden and serviced properly. Not to mention using the correct 2-stroke oil (preferably Rockoil or Silkolene Pro) not some cheap rubbish. I'd put money on it that these factors were ignored as is the case with most 2-stroke failures.

I've owned an RS125 and a 250, no mechanical problems with either but I serviced them by the book.

Fair enough, tbh the guy was... actually still is a complete fud lol.

Although I did rebuild one of mates RS125's engine and its still going after 2 years.
