Question about Motorcycles
Aprila rs 125 05 extrema powervalve arrow exhaust cuts out often with loss of electrics on dash once it cooks down starts fine anyone know why please only got 80mph and only got 93 mph downhill with wind behind just brought and read it should be quicker and more reliable any one help I've read lots on forms but garage can't say unless they strip everything down which would cost to much they are bit money hungry and been know to tip people off if given chance and outhers are still expensive and busy please leave comment it all helps bikes still very fast and I know a few things about machanics but won't touch as no tools for you tube vids on stripping
If you have only owned for a very short while, you should not have to pay for repairs as you have a 3 month warranty (in the UK anyway) You might want to get a second opinion from a recovery company (AA or RAC in the UK). Incidentally just because someone has said it will be faster will all depend on how the previous owner looked after it.92 MPH is very quick for a 125.

Seems you are running entirely off your battery.
Indications are a suspect lighting or source coil is shorting. Resistance test will show discrepancies. Data is available on-line, search technical/electrical manuals from Clymer or Haynes. An auto shop sells cheap multi-meters than you can use. It is a stationary test and will identify individual component problems. As rectifier/regulator, cdi box and wiring/switches/connections all have an effect. These test are outlined within these publications. Cheers (and don't get caught)

SOURCE: RS 125 Engine Tapping Sound
being a teo stroke these engines dony last long the aprilia has a high engine fail rate the noise is most prob the big end or small end bearings as these are common to go on this bike the main bearings make a rummbley scraping noise on idle best to get it looked at as when these go bangh thay can destroy the crank case too

u shocked or vibrated the ignition system-inspec wiring for cutz n looseness-takes time n patience-concentrate on the plug wire n where it connecs to coil-may need to take tank etc off-could be a fuse too-many good repair manuals r retailed
