Aprilia had plenty of sucess in 250cc GP racing so the RS250 was no suprise in 1994. The Aprilia RS250 is powered by a modified Suzuki RGV250 engine using Aprilia's own exhaust and intake systems.

The chassis on the RS250 is an extremley stiff and lightweight aluminium twin beam unit, part of the reason the bike handles corners so well.

Race-spec fully adjustable Showa upside-down front forks and rear monoshock mean the RS250 can be setup to suit the rider and road surface. Brembo brakes up front provide excellent stopping power.

Like all two strokes the Aprilia RS250 has a narrow but rewarding powerband and regular gear changes are required to maintain peak power.
