One of the most prestige components on the new RS 125 is its die-cast aluminium alloy swingarm. In addition
to guaranteeing the highest degree of torsional rigidity of any production 125, the swingarm’s special design also lets you lean further than ever on the track without touching the asphalt.

The RS 125’s sophisticated and lightweight frame is developed from the superb racing frames of Aprilia’s amazing 125 GP bikes. Made from polished aluminium alloy, it guarantees extremely high torsional rigidity, and delivers maximum control and agility under racing conditions.
