Just cross your fingers and believe that Aprilia realizes the demand for this bike is there, they just need to make it.

In the story he wished the guys luck making these. Will they be available from the guys that built this one?

If so, who is it, and how much?

Wow....


The Caiva Mito is interesting, not near as track focused as an RS chassis tho.


Is that a single or a V ?

It sounded to me as if they were dealing with a small tuner type of outfit. Prolly build'em as the orders come in.

That was the first one built I believe, it was a big project to figure all the details out. It has been posted before

550 twin..... that's about perfect.

Or you could bore it out and make it say....750 or 749 or 748.

Cool bike but... the motors are real race engines and life spans are proving to be pretty low. Sometimes 30 hours or less and failures can be catastophic. The good news those failures make good mechannical carnage pics...
This was a pretty good track bike too

The aprila forums have info on the 450/550.

What is the life span of a Yosh AMA SB or WSB motor? Like Mr Chapman said(Lotus).. paraphasing.. a race car should self destruct on the cool down lap, if it lasts longer there is more performance to be gained.

You want reliable, buy a gixer and keep it detuned to super stock or lower spec.


That said, the reports are that the street guys are getting the expected 50 or more hours out of the motor.

What I would really like......

An RS250 Like bike....chassis, suspension and brakes bred for the racetrack
with a midsized twin or multi (that is not a two stroke) that would reliably
make useable horsepower for a couple of seasons..

What about an SV650 Motor in a RS250 chassis ?

NC30's are neat too...

A 650 motor is huge and heavy compared to a 250 2T. You will have to give mine a try this summer.

really what the RS250 is... A detuned GP bike so it has reliability.. 12000 kilometers for street use or 6K for track.

It would be cool if Honda made a updated hawk. The new kaw 650 and SV are pretty primative. The market/economic problem is the $$$$ for cutting edge lightweight are not that different than a 1K... And bigger is better right.. supersize me LOL. I think the cup bikes new were slightly less than $9k. You could buy several SVs for that

True dat...


The SV and the Kawi 650's are "budget bikes". Even if you put money into
the suspension.... it's budget bike underpinnings show through.

The Hawk... as well as that CB-1 they produced for a while were interesting
with some additional race breeding, aluinum frames etc.


Would be cool to see someone step into the midelweight trackbike segment
with a real high tech chassis and brakes, just a middleweigh 4 stonk motor.

HHMMM, 13 race weekends, 2 hours per weekend=26hours. The 550twin last 30 hours perfect. : ) That motor only weights 65lbs and produces 70-80hp.

Hey Jeff good to see you are still around. I have heard that KTM will be making their redbull 125's available and they are good for 50 hp.

Are you going to get another 125 and do some AMA/USGPRU?

I've made myself the promise that if Aprilia does actually make one of these I'll be at the dealer placing my order. Unfortunately there isn't a huge demand in the U.S. for lightweight bikes so even if it makes it to production there's a good chance they wouldn't import to the U.S.

Only time will tell, everything else is speculation and the speculation around this combo has been there since the introductio of the SXV. That is killer though that someone actually had the resources to make a one off. It sounded nice too..

Does anyone remember that guy who put a crf450 motor in a RS125 chassis. It really was incredible. It was in RRW a few years ago.

I saw that, it was cool but reading the article it didn't seem to real world usable. He had to have the slipper clutch just to make it ridable, which then caused it to be very difficult to bump start. Definitely cool thought, and speaks to the fact that anything is possible if you want it bad enough.
