The Aprilia SX 125 draws inspiration from the innovative SXV and RXV models. The motorcycle was especially designed for the young riders who search for a rugged bike which is ready to cope with both city and off-road riding.
The SX 125 sits on 17 inch wheels shod in sport tires and is built on a strong frame. Power comes from a single cylinder unit developed using Aprilia’s experience in motorcycle racing. One of the unique features of the engine is its cylinder which is made of nickel silicon carbide (Nikasil) liner. Lubrication is provided by a separate mixer system.
The stopping power is handled by a front 260 mm disc and a two-piston floating caliper and a rear 220 mm disc combined with another floating piston.
On the other hand, the suspension includes a 40 mm upside down telescopic fork and a rear long steel swingarm.

Don’t be duped into thinking that the Aprilia SX 50 is a lightweight on two wheels. On the contrary, this bike, while clearly dedicated to young riders seeking the best technology around matched with head-turning good looks, is one that’s been designed with high-performance capabilities that few bikes in its segment can compete with. You certainly don’t expect anything less from Aprilia, a company that has taken the task of building the most efficient bikes in the market, whether it’s 50cc machines or their flagship models.
The SX 50, in particular, draws from years of innovation and expertise on 50cc bikes. The design offers sharp, clear-cut lines that are derived directly from the RXV/SXV off-road style icons, a testament to the enduring design of Aprilia bikes in all its forms. The SX 50 supermotard is also the epitome of a high-performance 50 cc machine, as evidenced by an advanced liquid cooled, single cylinder two stroke engine that uses the latest in single-cylinder technology, ensuring exceptional performance from a surprisingly low weight bike.
