Aprilia RS-1 Evolution description
Up for sale is a 2004 Rieju RS-1 Evolution project (check out info on the bike model here: http://www.motorcyclenews.com/bike-reviews/rieju/rs1/1997/). This tiny, insanely fast bike has to be seen to be believed. It is NOT minibike - it is a small-displacement sport bike, made in Spain. Register this as a motorcycle and own a tiny track bike, or register it as a moped and leave all those fools with 1970s French models in the dust.
The Good: The RS1 is a Spanish 50cc Aprilia RS-50 clone, with all the fixings of a full-on sport bike. It features a liquid-cooled, 2-stroke, oil-injected engine (An Italian Minarelli AM6 engine - the same one used on the Aprilia RS-50), with a 6 speed transmission. Wheels have high-performance Pirelli tires. Bike has 45 miles on it, and has mostly sat in my garage. New battery, new throttle, new headlight, new taillight, new gauges-hours meter/tach and speedometer. I built this up into a "naked-style" bike, so took the fairings and extra stuff off, but it is included.
I will be including a bill of sale and previous registration paperwork with the bike, but do not have the original title. The bike is a Spanish import and was never registered in the US or in Europe. Currently has a valid registration in Vermont, and thus could be registered in Rhode Island or other states with the legal DMV paperwork I'll include in the sale. You might be able to register it as a moped depending on what state you do it in, as it's a small-displacement vehicle, and thus not need any sort of paperwork at all.
The bad: I haven't started this in a while. Ran and drove a year ago - I just don't have time or money to "dial it in". Battery is currently dead. I bought it to build up as a naked-style bike, and thus the fairings have been taken off, but I still have all of these accessories and they are included with the bike - This includes the original gauges, two-stroke oil tank, fairings, and headlight. This is additional to the high-performance parts already on the bike - I put a standard bucket-type headlight with H4 bulb on the bike, and so on.
Feel free to submit offers or ask any questions you'd like, I will answer quickly. Need to get rid of this quickly as I'm moving to another state.
Can pick up in either Pawtucket, Rhode Island, or Somerville, Massachusetts.

The Piaggio X10 slipped a little under the radar at the 2011 EICMA show behind other maxi-scooters such as Yamaha’s T-Max, BMW’s C650GT and C600 Sport and Piaggio’s own Aprilia SRV850. But take a look at some of the features Piaggio’s slapped onto the X10 and you’ll soon learn it’s not to be underestimated. The new flagship of Piaggio’s “Gran Turismo” scooter family, the X10 is equipped with anti-lock brakes anti-slip regulation (i.e.Tue, 07 Feb 2012 00:00:00 -0800

Piaggio announced it is opening a new design center in Pasadena, Calif., to be headed by Aprilia RSV4 designer Miguel Galluzzi. Roberto Colaninno, chairman and chief executive officer of the Piaggio Group, announced plans for the new Advanced Design Center at a dealer convention for the Piaggio Group Americas in Miami, Fla. At the moment, North American customers usually have to wait a little longer before they receive new Piaggio models, with most models arriving on these shores months after they are available in Europe.
