When it comes to the perfect mix between power and weight, there aren’t many motorcycles that are able to compete with success against the KTM 250 SX.

The engine is mounted on a modern frame made of lightweight, high strength, chrome-molybdenum steel section tubes which is stiff enough to assure a good handling and precise steering. The frames bear a new colour for the 2013 model year.

Each wheel is fitted with Brembo brakes which are offered as standard equipment. They consist of front and rear lightweight wave discs (260 mm front and 220 mm rear) combined with strong brake calipers.

The 2012 Ducati Hypermotard 796 was created to dominate the road. The bike features an aggressive design which is combined with a host of modern technologies and a fairly capable engine. All these features make it one of the most attractive naked bikes in its segment.

Its engine has na 803cc displacement, is air cooled and delivers a maximum power of 81hp (59.6kW) @ 8000rpm and 55.7lb-ft (7.7kgm) of torque at 6250rpm. This massive power is sent to the rear wheel through a six speed gearbox which is combined with the APTC ‘wet’ clutch. This advanced clutch prevents destabilizing of the rear-end under aggressive down-shifting and also gives the extra benefit of a super-light feel at the lever.

The motorcycle is also fitted with a modern 2-1-2 catalytic exhaust system which uses an efficient pre-silencer configuration with twin lambda probes which help the bike conform to the Euro 3 emission standards.

The Aprilia RXV and SXV were the first bikes in the world to break the ‘single cylinder’ taboo and install a high performance twin in enduro and supermotard motorcycles. At the time it was seen as an almost impossible challenge to develop an off-road twin that would still be accessible to the riding public. But Aprilia’s R&D had the conviction, determination and experience for the job, and victories in top level competitions soon came flooding in, followed by the world supermotard championship title.

The new babies in the Aprilia range, the RX and the SX, are inspired by Aprilia’s world-beating off road twins. The RX 50 and SX 50 are clearly dedicated to young riders seeking the best technology around plus head-turning good looks.

The motorcycles are powered by a 49.9 cc liquid cooled, single cylinder two stroke with light alloy cylinder. The engine is combined with a 7 liters fuel tank and is mated on a six speed gearbox.
