Aprilia RS150 Feature Review – True Sports Appearance & Ergonomics
The new Aprilia RS150 is the brand new sports bike that carries the RS Sports tag. Therefore, the bike builds completely in the sketch of a track bike. The bike designed under the Aprilia RSV4 profile. Hence, this small capacity machine somewhat is the miniature of that big beast.

The motorcycle design has done on aluminum perimeter frame and sports-dedicated swing arms. The entire unit is boasted with a heavier profile that grabs the attention at first sight. Hence, the multi-tunneled aerodynamic side blades also cover the same impressions. Further, the fuel tank also furnished with a bikini scalp holding the ignition and knee pocket from both sides.
Coming to the front assembly it just a huge unit that profiled with triple pit headlamp setup. Next, the windshield is puffy and that large leveled up to the rider’s chest. At the tail, it’s too much compact that intentionally exposed the rear wheel that is damn sexy. Hence, the pillion seating is not omitted but quite discouraged with a tiny cushion over the bikini tail and string-like wheel fender.
At the rests, all the lights are featured with halogen bulbs and indicators come with conventional clear lens casings. Here, the ODO is a combo with a digital display and analog rev pit. The handlebar is clip-on and the seat is sporty split. Lastly, the conventional exhaust pipe is omitted and that is compact with underbelly arrangements. Summing up, overall it’s a bigger looking sports bike from the head to tail and that is obviously iconic to its clan.
