Is it possible to register an Aprilia RS125 in the states and use it as a canyon rider? I dont think it is but i dont know why...

It would probably be pretty hard. RS250s are more viable because they have been around here before, it would probably be a lot easier and even possibly cheaper. I have never seen a rs125 in the states, but I have seen a couple 250s.

So you can register an rs250 and ride it on the street... I was wondering since they are 2 strokes if they are street legal..

I have seen a few Rs's regestered here in the states. I dont know how hard it would be to do that tough. And yes a 2 smoker for the street would be awsome.

Actually I prefer a nice 4 stroke, but if she has a good technique I may only make it to the 3 stroke.......Wait....did I just say that out loud.....

I've wondered about this too (Aprilia Shiver is OMGSEXY). Wouldn't getting a foreign bike legal be the same as getting a custom bike legal? i.e. as long as it passes the inspection requirements, does it matter that it's EU spec?

Of course, that EU spec might keep it from passing your local inspection, especially in California. I don't know which standard is tougher.

I'm not sure about bikes but I have brought some cars into the states from EU and Japan, the DoT will hassle you non stop about the safety and emissions. I can tell you how to get through customs legaly w/o doing the DOT stuff, shoot me a PM.

so as long as it will pass my states inspection it is ok to drive on the street and get registered. Because when I get back to idaho i think i might drive up to canada and try to find one...
