2013 Rieju RS3 50cc NKD, Naked, Small-Displacement Aggression

The 2013 Rieju RS3 50cc NKD is the smaller version of the very nice 125 NKD model, a bike created for those who value a bike with top-notch looks and impeccable craftsmanship... and which can be ridden without a Class A license.

Powered by a Minarelli NG 50cc 2-stroke engine, the 2013 Rieju RS3 50cc NKD is indeed more than meets the eye. Thanks to the 2T design, the engine is nimble and has therefore received a full-size, 6-speed gearbox.

Fed by a Dell'Orto PHBN 16 carburetor and with a separate mixture system, the power unit of the 2013 RS3 50cc NKD is truly convenient: no more need to mix the fuel and oil yourselves.. it's all clean and neat, now. And the generous 12 L (3.16 gal) fuel tank and 1.1 L (0.3 gal) oil reservoir will let you ride a long distance before having to pull over to a gas station.

Thanks to the triangular double cradle double steel tube chassis, the 2013 Rieju RS3 50cc NKD weighs in at only 115 kg (254 lbs). A no-nonsense 41mm inverted Paioli fork take care of shock damping, while Galfer wave rotors (300mm in the front and 200mm in the rear) ensure the stopping force.

If looking to jump off a scooter and start riding a bike, the 2013 Rieju RS3 50cc NKD might be one of the best options. And even more, it comes with street-approved 17” wheels, so no jokes will be made on you.
