2013 Rieju RS3 125, Small-Displacement Racing Spirit

The truly sporty nature of a motorcycle does not reside in the displacement and power only. And if you've already raised an eyebrow, just take a good look at some kids racing 125cc-class bikes and then at the 2013 Rieju RS3 125; you'll most likely start to see the point here.

The Rieju RS3 125 is a small-displacement bike but it is a diminutive sport one. From the specially-tuned Yamaha-Minarelli power plant to the minute details in bodywork design, this machine breathes a sporty attitude. A high-tech liquid-cooled, 4-valve 125cc engine delivers non-nonsense 15 hp and the 6-speed gearbox makes sure you can use this power in the most efficient way, from slower city cruises to fast canyon road-carving.

The new perimeter chassis offers enhanced rigidity and the dual full-size 17” alloy rims provide the necessary shoeing for great performance. Add in LED daytime lights and dual projector headlights, disc brakes with radial calipers and the 40 mm forks, and there you have it, an 125cc-class machine ready to race up the hill.

And a final, even nicer detail: the 12 L (3.1 gal) fuel tank, providing enough juice for a huge range!
