No, I meant I got the information from a friend at Aprilia USA. I wish I really got it...I'd be out riding instead of sitting on my ass typing all day.

That thing looks awesome. Looks to be a true contender for the Ducati Hypermotard.

I like it. looks mean as hell, and probably sounds like it too. could be pretty practical for daily riding to me. I volunteer to test its day to day dependability.

If it's built like my last Aprilia, reliability won't be an issue. I put 36K on that thing and never even had to adjust the valves...just change oil, tires and brake pads.

Nice as$ bike! But not my style!

My brother and uncle ride bmw dual sports, but they feel to light, to high, and to skinny for me! But they are great for (uh oh) wheelies! So I ride theirs every once in a while.
