    They are, for a 125cc, the cream of the crop Radar, and even though theres all the crap flying about that they are high maintainance, I regularly serviced mine and never had engine problems, never missed a beat, the only part I had to replace was the front wheel bearings which Kezzr did for me whilst I was on that 3 day trip to Wales. Absolutely fantastic bikes and if I had the money I would have one again just for the hell of it![:D]

    I have known two people with RS250 and they both reckon they were absolute giant killers

    The NSR went back to the original owner, my nephew, he continued to have major probs with it, self inflicted on several occasions, heard last week it was nicked from his workplace.(still owes me money on it)Micks still got the ZX6R an his bro in law has a new ZX636. Going back to the Aprilia, in MCN they said,A brilliant track bike that can be ridden to the limit all the time, sounds about right to me, bet you new that anyway.

    yeah I can imagine the only place it would struggle would be on high speed straights, cornering it would be all over the big boys!
