Aprilia carries on the production of their latest Supermoto and Enduro 125cc models, the SX 125 and RX 125, in 2009. Currently not new in the lineup, but radically improved, the models announced a whole new kind of fun both on dirt tracks and on paved ones with the occasion of last year’s revision. Now, we got the chance to swing a leg over each model and couldn’t be more impressed, given the category.
Aprilia came across a unique recipe for the enduro/supermoto world, one that enables their riders to rule the trails as well as the supermoto competitions in the same time. The big secret is the 450/550cc V-twin motor found on the RXV models and on the much more interesting and versatile SXV ones that now got our attention.
Although the transformation from an off-road bike into a super motard is rather facile, Aprilia went the whole way and created completely new rides in order to dominate the tracks. Furthermore, the SXV 2008 VDB Replica comes as a purely competition motorcycle born from the need to deliver the very best of engine performance and chassis refinement, the results being even elbow scratching 90-degree turns.
Aprilia launched the new 2008 SXV, a motorcycle which had already made a name for itself as the first twin cylinder supermotard in the world. So it is understandable why designers and engineers constantly kept improving this motorcycle, delivering a leader for the class.
It was inevitable that the innovative SXV and RXV would extend their influence to other members of the Aprilia range sooner or later. The world-beating styling, performance and technology of these fantastic machines was obviously destined to engender a family of eye-catching and modern off-road motorcycles. The SX 125 and RX 125 are the latest off-road machines from Aprilia. Specialist and refined, they are the obvious choice for young riders who want to stand out from the crowd.
