Aprilia Cup RS250s are ADDICTIVE!!

OK folks, so I have to tell you. I have never understood why anyone would want to buy a 250 for the track. I mean come on, it is SLOW... and going fast is so much more fun! Right?! I mean, it just comes down to the same thing that we get from all these first time bike buyers, "I think I'll get a 750 or 1000 or a Busa for my first bike" type of logic, I mean really, if you can afford a 750 or a 1000, get one right? They are faster on the track after all, and of course, it is all about lap times, isn't it?

Well, I am here to tell you that that same logic that gets people hurt on the street, moves right to the track as well. The bigger the bike, the more HP it has, the heavier it is, etc... all get in the way of learning how to "RIDE" or how to "CORNER". You may be thinking, OK... maybe that makes sense... Of course, all of us have read that new trackheads should be learning on an SV or on a 600. That I wholeheartedly support. It is safer, and there is more to learn about cornering, braking, etc... and I think that it makes these people a better rider than those that start on a 1000 or a 750 (remember guys, I ride 1000s with a heck of a lot of HP, so I am not picking on you).

A friend of mine, 5Axis as you know him, Dave Lockhart, offered me a ride on his RS250 a while ago. Foolishly, I never took him up on it. Lo and behold, he talked to me last week, told me that he would be at Blackhawk, and that he would NOT be riding. He was coming up for the cookout on Saturday. And by the way, did I want him to bring his RS250 for me to ride and check out? Hell yeah!! So anyhow, he brings the bike, starts it up for me, gives me a few tips, and send me out on the track. I figured, hey... it's slow, I'll ride it in B group to get used to it. (I am a CR so that is a nice bonus feature I get to enjoy) So, I went out and CRd on the RS250 in the B group. I had so much fun I just couldn't stop laughing and smiling!! That thing RAILS through corners like you can't believe! I rode the first session getting comfortable on it and carrying tons of corner speed. This is addictive, so of course, I asked if I could ride yet another session on the bike. Dave laughed, mixed me some more pre-mix, and sent me back out onto the track. I went out and rode with Mopar, one of the fastest guys in I group, and since I figured I'd be slower than I-pace, I rode without a CR shirt on, just as a regular member (I didn't want any of the I guys to have to slow down for a wave-by from me). Anyhow, Mopar and I proceeded to go out and just rip through the I guys (outside passes only) and fly everywhere except for the straights. If he was in front of me, he had to hold up on the straights, if I was in front of him, I'd drop him through all the corners and he would catch up on the straights.

All I can tell you folks is that these things (Aprilia Cup RS250s) are EXTREMELY fun, can carry TONS and TONS of corner speed like I have never ridden, and are a total blast. That is the good news.

The bad news - my wife is gonna pissed when another bike shows up in our garage.

5Axis - THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU as Gomer Pyle would say.







(oh yeah, one more thing, don't come off the gas on a two-stroke mid corner... the front can wash out)

Yeah, it was weird, the slowest I had gone on the bike in 4 sessions, and there I was going slow in the corner, waiting for a rider. The front end was just GONE... washed straight out, no brakes, no gas, very little lean angle at the exit of 7. Anyhow, broke a brake lever, and that is about it. Very very well built machine.

Wink, glad to hear you had a good time on Dave's Cup Bike. Aprilia Cups Bikes a great and alot of fun!!

If I wanted to go fast in a straight line I'd be a drag racers! I love the corners so I race the best handling bike on the planet. If you think a 300lbs street based 70hp 2-stroke bike is fun you should try a true purpose built race bike. Like a 250 or 125 GP bike. 250's weigh around 230lbs with 80-90hp and 125's weigh 150lbs with 40-50hp.

I think this is a kick-ass looking RS125.

Its bad ass. Wish there was bike like that in the USA. There would be alot less newbs buying 600 just cause they look cool and there would be more riders cause not everyone fits on a 600 and up sportbike plus there are those that only like the way sportbikes look but don't ride because they afraid of getting hurt or of the sportbikes power.

Still a street based bike and wouldn't have a chance against a 125GP bike on the track.

I am working on that myself, but for trackdays and the hours/miles the Ape is a perfect "low maintenance GF" Sort of a girl next door Vs. the whack job stripper/ model that is fun for a few days. It's good to have both around if you can juggle it.

TZ is too much work for me. I have a few bikes to maintain already, and ride every weekend basically. Not a lot of time to deal with a TZ. That is why the RS Cup bike interested me. Is there anything else in the same relative performance, price and ease of maintenance that I should look at?

Not unless you find/do a conversion or like supermoto bikes. Hot conversions are the Honda XR650R (or any unlimited supermoto engine) engine in a 250GP chassis or a one of the 450 MX engines in a 125GP chassis. That new Aprilia Supermoto is 220lbs and 70hp stock. How I love to get ahold of that engine and shoe horn it into a 125GP chassis! That 450 twin only weighs 15lbs more than a 125gp engine. It would be a 165lbs bike with 70hp.

NESBA doesn't allow supermoto bikes because of closing speed disparity, which is why I was curious about the 125 bikes. They look like alot of fun in the corners, but I would think they're a bit short on top-end.

REALLY!!! Supermoto bikes can easily stay with a SV on a straight away or another words beat the crap out of my 125gp down the straights.

if you have to ask then you really dont want to know. if you own a supermono and do anything other than hug it, hang it on the wall, or beat off furiously to it daily then you're crazy.
