    indeed what the price of r125 in there? and how the availability of spare parts there for r125? body fairing and headliaght particular. some in Indonesia who have a yamaha vixion want to modify the bike if the price is affordable. 🙂

    I bought my R125 for £1500, and it was 5-6 years old. Parts are easy to come by because they’re so easy to smash up 🙂

    The high performance comes at a price though; the bike eats plugs, the piston rings need replacing more quite often and cleaning the power valve is a pain!

    I found a headlight through an official Aprilia dealer for the same price most were offering on ebay, the tricky thing to replace is the fairings which are extortionate brand new.

    And finding usable seconds on e bay is like playing roulette!

    Hi Kevin. Love that bike of yours. Here in Singapore it will cost us some SGD$13,000 for this sweet machine. Machine price around SGD$10,500, insurance ~SGD$600, certificate of entitlement SGD$2233. Hefty indeed.
