Information: 125cc, 2 stroke. Owned from new it felt a like a major step up from the SR 50. The fastest it saw was 75mph, but cruised nicely at 50 to 55mph. The handling always felt spot-on and was great fun through the twisty bits. According to the motorcycle press the SR 125 was the best handling bike in its class at the time. The bike went through a series of visual modifications from headlamp eye brows and mesh grills, to white tyre logos and tinted indicator lenses. All the modīs were cheap to do and at the time I thought they made the bike look good, however with hind sight some looked a bit tacky. The bike was put back to standard Autumn 2005, apart from a set of heated over grips (Oxford Hot Hands) and, for the winter months, an official Aprilia rear mudguard extension to try and keep the bike a bit cleaner. Like the SR 50 that came before it, the battery was changed under warranty as it was faulty. The other problem I had was with the headlamp continually steaming up whenever it was used. This was solved by removing it from the bike and taking it indoors, with the bulbs removed, until it dried out. It took a couple of goes until it stopped misting up completely, the key seemed to be once it has dried out to put it in the same environment as the bike for few days before refitting it. My only criticisms of the bike would be that the petrol tank seemed small (its capacity was smaller than a SR 50''s tank), and Aprilia could have more generous with the paint on the exhaust and the centre stand. September 2005 saw the bike get a make over as the bike had been neglected for a few months. I repainted the exhaust (with spray-on Barbecue paint, excellent stuff) along with the centre stand (with brush-on Hammerite Metal Paint), and the bike was give a dam good clean. With the make over complete the bike looked like new, however, I badly wanted a trail bike so within a couple of months the SR 125 was part exchanged for a Honda XR 125 L-4.
