2011 Rieju RS3 Sportbike Introduced

Spanish motorcycle manufacturer brought the two final versions (50 and 125 cc) of its new model RS3 sports line to EICMA this year, after being presented as a prototype last year. The final production version is joined by the Marathon 125 PRO Competition, a new variant of the successful Marathon 125, but with higher specification components and packed with a special kit of competition goodies.

RS3 is the evolution of the acclaimed RS2 range, and features the new RS3 Dual perimeter chassis. In addition to that, advanced aerodynamic bodywork styling provides superior superbike looks.

Power is supplied by a well proven liquid cooled Yamaha-Minarelli engine, four strokes with a six speed gearbox, so the tuning potential is pretty massive.

Other features include Showa inverted 35 mm front forks and lightweight 17-inch alloy rims. Braking power comes from a 280mm disc up front with a radial mounted dual-piston caliper and a 220 mm rear disc. Lighting system features dual projector headlamps up front and modern LED to the rear.

“The RS3 series is made in Spain and the latest in a long line of traditional fast 50s and 125s where the combined elements of performance, style and price are essential to bring to the market machines that the youth of today desire,”
a company statement reads.

On the other hand, the Marathon 125 PRO Competition is based on the Marathon 125 4T, with components developed from extensive racing experience whilst retaining road legal status.

“Taking advantage of the dynamic qualities of the Marathon 125, and thinking about the most exacting fans, who’s desire is a machine with serious capabilities and sports use, the new machine is perfect for competition and already a proven winner in European enduro series, Rieju offers the version "Competition",”
Rieju says.
