If you want the looks and handling of a bigger bike, the Aprilia RS50 is certainly worth considering. Powered by a 50cc single cylinder 2-stroke engine and equipped with a 6-speed gearbox, the RS50 goes very well and with styling clues taken from its bigger brothers, the Aprilia RS50 looks the part even when standing still! – A good one is a joy to ride, but it is important that you choose carefully before parting with your cash.
Buying a used Aprilia RS 50
A cheap used RS 50 will probably have had a hard life and this is a bike which needs careful maintenance to retain reliability. Also bear in mind that new RS 50’s sold in the UK are restricted to 30mph. As a 16 year old rider it is illegal to use one that has been de-restricted, so check that the bike is in original restricted form before parting with any cash. If you are in any doubt at all, take a knowledgeable friend with you to inspect the bike before you buy.
