2004 Other Makes Rs-1 Evolution on 2040-motos
Aprilia RS-1 Evolution description
Up for sale is a 2004 Rieju RS-1 Evolution project (check out info on the bike model here: http://www.motorcyclenews.com/bike-reviews/rieju/rs1/1997/). This tiny, insanely fast bike has to be seen to be believed. It is NOT minibike - it is a small-displacement sport bike, made in Spain. Register this as a motorcycle and own a tiny track bike, or register it as a moped and leave all those fools with 1970s French models in the dust.
The Good: The RS1 is a Spanish 50cc Aprilia RS-50 clone, with all the fixings of a full-on sport bike. It features a liquid-cooled, 2-stroke, oil-injected engine (An Italian Minarelli AM6 engine - the same one used on the Aprilia RS-50), with a 6 speed transmission. Wheels have high-performance Pirelli tires. Bike has 45 miles on it, and has mostly sat in my garage. New battery, new throttle, new headlight, new taillight, new gauges-hours meter/tach and speedometer. I built this up into a "naked-style" bike, so took the fairings and extra stuff off, but it is included.
I will be including a bill of sale and previous registration paperwork with the bike, but do not have the original title. The bike is a Spanish import and was never registered in the US or in Europe. Currently has a valid registration in Vermont, and thus could be registered in Rhode Island or other states with the legal DMV paperwork I'll include in the sale. You might be able to register it as a moped depending on what state you do it in, as it's a small-displacement vehicle, and thus not need any sort of paperwork at all.
The bad: I haven't started this in a while. Ran and drove a year ago - I just don't have time or money to "dial it in". Battery is currently dead. I bought it to build up as a naked-style bike, and thus the fairings have been taken off, but I still have all of these accessories and they are included with the bike - This includes the original gauges, two-stroke oil tank, fairings, and headlight. This is additional to the high-performance parts already on the bike - I put a standard bucket-type headlight with H4 bulb on the bike, and so on.
Feel free to submit offers or ask any questions you'd like, I will answer quickly. Need to get rid of this quickly as I'm moving to another state.
Can pick up in either Pawtucket, Rhode Island, or Somerville, Massachusetts.

The first images of the Aprilia Caponord 1200 broke last week but Piaggio has released new details and photographs of the adventure-tourer at the 2012 EICMA Show in Milan, Italy. Sharing its engine and frame with the Dorsoduro 1200, the Aprilia Caponord 1200 is the latest competitor in the adventure-touring segment, albeit with limited off-road aspirations. The closest competitor to the Caponord 1200 is probably the Ducati Multistrada 1200.Thu, 11 Mar 2010 00:00:00 -0800
FULLY ADJUSTABLE suspension, Brembo brakes, wavy discs, fly-by-wire throttle - there's plenty of hi-tech stuff on Aprilia's 2010 Dorsudoro 750 Factory, and here's a promo video of the bike in action. The Aprilia's 750cc V-twin engine thumps out 92bhp in standard trim, which should propel the bike to a top speed of around 130mph (if you can hang on). 2010 Aprilia Dorsudoro specs: • 90° V twin layout• Liquid cooling• Tri-Map engine management and ride-by-wire throttle control• Very over-square bore to stroke ratio• Four valves per cylinder• Double overhead cam valve timing• Electronic fuel injection with two throttle bodies• Stick-coils integrated in the spark plug caps• Three way catalytic converter and Lambda probe• Hydraulically operated wet clutchTue, 25 Oct 2011 00:00:00 -0700
I think we'll all be mourning the loss of Marco Simoncelli for a long time yet; his full potential will remain an unanswerable topic of many pub debates for years to come. But one thing's for sure: he was unique and this year he injected so much energy, plenty of controversy and a whole load of 'what ifs' to the sport. I must admit, for years I used to sacrifice whatever was happening on a Sunday to make sure I could watch the GP but this year I haven't seen every race, it just hasn't been the same: Stoner has been dominant, the grid has been embarrassingly low on numbers, Rossi has been absent and the battles have - in general - not been memorable.
