Hi guys - does the "aprilia" front radial brake caliper on the RS125 have 100mm bolt spacing?

I brought a set of Brembo Goldline series calipers from a RSVR to use on my SXV550. Though I don't need the RHS caliper as the SXV has the front brake on the LHS.

As the RS125 has the caliper on the RHS, this could be a pretty cheap upgrade if they fit. If anyone is interested send me a PM.

It won't fit, the bolt spacing on the RS125 looks to be around 85-86mm.

they do fit, though not much of an upgrade, the aprilia calipers are essentially goldlines anyway. made by brembo, logoed aprilia.

1. They do not fit.
2. There are no brembos on the bike!! 06- radial calipers are made by "Hengtong"

They do not fit correctly. even if you get the bolt spacing right they are a different size bolt / pitch. Also there are clearance issues with the wheel spokes, at least there is with the 5 spokes. I guess with an adapter plate and a disc spacer it could be made to work with the stock forks though. Of course im talking 99 - 05 shape bikes

The stock caliper is quite good anyway IMO, its the master cylinder thats the weak part. I replaced it with a Brembo radial master, very big difference. I cant remember if the stock caliper is made by Grimeca or Brembo, but yea, obv its branded Aprilia.

well, mine must be different, they have a 100mm spacing, and have a small (b) logo on the back, the same logo as on my brembo radial on my ducati, will take a foto soon.

I like the Aprilia caliper but not the price of the racing pads. I too use a Brembo master cyl and think its great.

But the pads, oh the price of the pads. I can buy a goldline caliper and buy good pads cheaper. WOuld not take long to cover the cost of the caliper.

hmm cant remember now, but it was dirt cheap compared to the normal UK prices. I bought a billet one online from the USA back when it was more like 2 dollars to the pound

where do you got this Hengtong info from? would be fun to point out to my friend's 06-09 bike n said "hey yours not brembo.its from a taiwanese company called Hengtong!"

Are there any updates on this issue?

Do we have a brembo caliper that can fit the >2006 bikes, and are the radial calipers really made by "hengtong"??

I imagine the Hengtong name is right. i know i had a rear caliper from an 06+ bike kicking around a while back. The only mark on it was a funny 'H' symbol. Looking at the caliper it def wasnt Brembo anyway. And i imagine the front caliper would be made by the same company as the rear

Hmm...googling around and you might be right, there seems to be quite a lot of piaggio scooters with hengtong calipers.
