The new design is a proper showstopper, and younger buyers will definitely drool over these bikes any day. Unfortunately for us, the new Aprilia RS 125 and Tuono 125 are like forbidden fruits, as Aprilia doesn't have any plans to launch these beautiful machines in India anytime soon.

Even though the Aprilia RS 125 and Tuono 125 carry forward the same engines as their predecessor, the new engines have been updated to be Euro 5 emissions norms compliant. Despite the engine upgrade which adheres to the stringent regulations, both the RS 125 and Tuono 125 still produce an identical and healthy 15.2PS at 10,750 rpm just like the earlier model.

This is also the maximum-permitted power output for motorcycles of this class in Europe. However, there are few other changes to go with the updated exterior. It gets a fatter rear tyre and dual-channel ABS. It is still unclear whether Aprilia has updated the internal mechanical bits of the carried over USD forks, rear mono-shock and brakes.

The new Aprilia RS 125 and Tuono 125 have already started reaching the Italian dealerships. For the Indian market though, it is unlikely that we will receive these motorcycles. Aprilia had confirmed that it was working on a 300-400cc motorcycle for India and other markets like it. We still have to wait for a couple of years before this new Aprilia machine hits the road.

Thoughts On The Aprilia RS 125 And Tuono 125 Being Revealed

The new Aprilia RS 125 and Tuono 125 are both brilliant motorcycles and have a market in europe. In India though, the 125cc performance motorcycle segment is still at its infancy. There are only two performance motorcycles in the segment at the moment - the Bajaj Pulsar NS125 and the KTM 125 Duke. Hence, we do not see these baby Aprilias making their way to the Indian market.
