Default Insurance RS 125

I'm trying to use the online quote system for Liberty and they quote me for an RS 125 FP 2017 no problem but they won't quote me for an RS4. Isn't it the same bike? If I got the RS4 does my insurance still count?

The RS4 doesn't exist under the Aprilia website it's just the 4 stroke model of the RS 125 and they don't make 2 stroke anymore

It's a completely different bike with a different engine and risk category as regards insurance.

The insurance companies here don't care what Aprilia have listed on their website.
They will not cover you on a bike that's not the correct model you got a quote for.

I'm well aware of the difference between 2strokes and four strokes since I've been driving bikes well before you were in nappies.

Look, I'm not trying to insult you or lead you down a false route but no one here is going to give you an insurance quote.
Every lad on here started off and needed advice.
My advice is wait until the insurance companies are open and call them.
Stop trying to do things online.

Don't ever buy a bike with a valid insurance quote.
Loads of lads come on here over the years at 17 years of age asking why they can't get insured on the cbr250 they just bought etc and the reality is because they bought the bike first and looked for insurance second.

Do things by the book when getting a licence, insurance or bike cos if you tell lies to an insurance company and have a crash they will not cover you, have you got 20grand to cover a written off cage?

Ask as many questions as you like we are a helpful bunch but....Take the advice lad.

Thanks for clearing that up one of the dealerships I was actually looking at the bike listed the bike as an Aprilla RS RS4 so I had asked which bike it was and he had explained to me that they were the exact same bike I think that's where the confusion came from.

Thank you for your advice, I'll give them a call when they're open.

They are a very similar frame and suspension but a very different engine.
Hope you get sorted.

Ask loads of questions here so you go in prepared.
What age are you?
If you are over 24 you can go straight to 600cc.

Try all the insurance companies.

Ring principle,
Axa,
Liberty,
Carole Nash
And Aon.

You may find it hard to get quoted being 17 but that bike is sensible enough.
If they won't quote you try a honda varadero 125 (if your tall) or a honda cbr125 (if your small) and buy second hand then after a year with no claims it will be easier to get quotes.

Compare insurance groups to get an idea, some 250cc bikes are the same or less group than the 125's
Here's a good site to help you
