And here are the MotoGP testing times from the winter test at Jerez held in March, 2009. They don't publish the race lap times for motogp for some reason. But they hovered around the 1:40.0's for most of the race.

Pos Rider Team Fastest lap Prev. Gap Lead. Gap Laps
1 Valentino Rossi Fiat Yamaha Team 1:39.429 - - 54
2 Dani Pedrosa Repsol Honda 1:39.447 +0.018 +0.018 47
3 Jorge Lorenzo Fiat Yamaha Team 1:40.426 +0.979 +0.997 58
4 Toni Elias San Carlo Honda Gresini 1:40.448 +0.022 +1.019 56
5 Alex De Angelis San Carlo Honda Gresini 1:40.486 +0.038 +1.057 49
6 Nicky Hayden Ducati Marlboro Team 1:40.486 - +1.057 70
7 Mika Kallio Alice Team 1:40.564 +0.078 +1.135 54

10 Andrea Dovizioso Repsol Honda 1:40.966 +0.110 +1.537 46
11 Niccolo Canepa Alice Team 1:41.077 +0.111 +1.648 48

14 Yuki Takahashi Scot Racing Team 1:42.918 +0.012 +3.489 60




Anyways, as you can see, the lap times are much closer than you would think.
I think you may have got confused.
The Aprilia 125GP & 250GP bikes you are showing above are a million miles away from the RS125 road bike that this thread is about!!!
It's almost like comparing a road going Chevy to a factory Nascar Chevy.
Clever marketing will always try to liken the road going bike to the successful "race" bike.
Like chalk and cheese apart from the badge on the tank.
Still a beautiful bike, with first class handling and brakes but my ealier point still stands.

i was able to ride one that AF1 brought to TWS (Texas World Speedway) last year, it was a very fun ride, no top end but it did corner like it was on rails, brakes, no need for brakes on this bike at all. it is a wonderful race bike if that is why you buy one, i would love to be able to buy and race one of these, you could learn so much about corner speed, after all, we don't race and do track days to go fast in the straights.

everything i've ever read about the 125 and 250cc gp bikes are they are very similar to the road going versions. what exactly are the differences?

Ulric, how many 125cc "not for road use" sports bikes do you know come with headlights??
the RS125 road bike is readily available in Europe.
Stricter US emission laws prevent them being readily available in the US as a highway legal option I would guess.
However, it would appear that there is a demand for them as a track bike inspired by the success of their genuine race bikes. Importers are keen to meet that demand.

What are the differences??, easier to list the similarities, the badge on the tank!!

I have also owned and ridden one so can call on some first hand experience.

NO. they arent anywhere close to being the same.

I spent a few session on one at the Aprilia Dealer promotion last year at MSRH. I was my favorite '08 Aprilia hands down to ride. Just fun.......... grin factor is off the chart, but it then had very little int he way of suspention adjustment other than preload. Hopefully since it's track only they have done something about that. Not a speedy bike by any means, but again, a BLAST to rail throught the turns even if the suspention pogo'd with my skinny on it.

Buck gets it. Clearly it's a road bike, not a GP bike. Anywhere else in the world you can ride that thing to gramma's house. Sure, no power compared to a GP bike, but also real world reliability. Title it in Texas and have fun on weekend backroad rides. Then take it to the track for reliable two stroke light weight and great handling. Look at the guy running the Moriwaki 250 four stroke around the circuit. He's starting to rail on that thing, passing bigger bikes all over the place. With maybe 40 HP. Looks like fun to me.

I'm just hoping a bunch of fools rush in on these things, hate them, and sell them to me with clogged carbs for chump change!!!!

Ha!.. I just joined b/c I saw this thread whilst perusing the interwebz for all things stink-wheel.

Two-stroke nut, through and through. I've been neglectful of my bikes b/c cars took over for a while, starting to get back into 'em though. Cool site, I'll have to read up on here a bit before posting anything further (like, there's surely a 'welcome n00bz' thread I'm missing...).

so you are talking about a motogp 125 not a show room floor one. right?
