One thought on “Aprilia RSV 1000R”

  1. Expensive, BUT you get what you pay for, say compaired to a ducati 999S that is 1/3 more draining of your wallet. Plus is more of a niche motorcycle in the eyes of non-motorcyclist, so you get 100 headturns a mile.
    Parts are easy now piaggio has injected a bollock load of cash into Aprilia veins.
    Rotax engine in the RSV is proven to be FAR more reliable than say a Japanese Inline 4. Austrian granite. 🙂
