2004 Other Makes Rs-1 Evolution on mail.2040motos
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.

We know the sun always shines on the righteous and that’s exactly what happened last weekend at Donington Park. Yes its good honest people back in charge of the Derbyshire circuit so we saw summer sunshine for Friday’s free practice and also for WSB race two on Sunday. The circuit is better than ever with a new Esses section in place, and while the paddock remains unchanged, work has already started that will see gradual revamp over the year ahead.Thu, 01 Nov 2012 00:00:00 -0700
The Piaggio Group reported a 9.1% decrease in net sales over the first nine months of 2012 compared to the same period in 2011, thanks in large part to a strong decline in the European market for two-wheelers. According to Piaggio‘s third quarter 2012 report, the Italian manufacturer recorded 706.3 million euros (US$913.8 million) in motorcycle and scooter sales, compared to 777.2 million in sales over the same period of 2011. The Piaggio Group, which also includes the brands Aprilia, Moto Guzzi, Vespa and other brands, sold 321,300 motorcycles and scooters in the first nine months of 2012, a year-on-year decrease of 3.5% from 2011.Wed, 28 Nov 2012 00:00:00 -0800
