Rieju has unveiled the 2011 version of its learner-legal 50 and 125cc sportsbike, the RS3. The new RS3 features a more advanced bodywork and an agressive styling. Power is supplied by a well-proven 50cc liquid-cooled Yamaha 2-stroke-motor or a 125cc 4-stroke engine which delivers about 15hp. Both engines are mated with a 6-speed gearbox. Precise handling is provided by Showa inverted 35mm front fork plus the use of lightweight 17” alloy rims to reduce unspring weight.
Braking comes from a 280mm disc up front and a 220mm rear disc. Lighting system features dual projector headlamps up front and modern LED to the rear. The RS3 series is made in Spain, price has yet to be announced. The new Rieju RS3 125 will be in direct competition with the Yamaha YZF-R125 and Honda CBR125R when it goes on sale in 2010.
