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.

We got a peak at the new Vespa 946 late last week but Piaggio has now released more pictures and information on the bold new scooter. Presented at the 2012 EICMA Show a year after its original concept was unveiled. The new Vespa 946 is a mix of both the past and the future.Fri, 15 May 2009
Named after a man by the name of Zebulon Pike, an explorer who led an expedition to the area in 1806, Pikes Peak is home to the second oldest motorsports race in America second only to the Indianapolis 500. First completed in 1916, this year marks the 87th running of the “Race to the Clouds.” If the math doesn’t add up, this is because there were several years that the event did not run over the course of its 93 year history. The 12.4 mile trek up the mountain consists of 156 treacherous turns to an elevation of 14,110 feet.Mon, 08 Nov 2010
I've sat through enough manufacturer' presentations recently to know that we're in trouble. Ignoring the still booming Asian markets, the rest of the motorcycle World is in free-fall. Even looking at the figures optimistically we're still only selling half the volumes we were in pre-crash 2006.
