All that is factored into the cost. So technically you are paying for it.

Yes, and no. It would cost you more to add that to another bike than it costs to purchase that one complete.

And how close are they performance wise to a Mille? Reason i ask is because my R6 kept up with one not too long ago. it was one of my buddies friends 2000 I think.

I think they made all three. Mille, Mille R and Factory. The Factory being top shelf.

Oh. Yeah it definately looks top shelf. Look at the rear shock pic again. It's surrounded by CF.

I am absolutely in love with that bike. That is HOT!

My first race bike was an aprilia rs250, and let me tell you, those Italians know how to do it...not only are they sexy bikes, but they handle like a dream. Enjoy it and ride safe!!!

They changed the designations recently. Originally, there was the standard Mille, and the Mille R. In the last couple of years, just to be confusing, they changed the standard Mille to the Mille R, and the Mille R became the Factory.

Then, there's the SP.

If anyone is interested in model designation for Aprilia its stacks up the following way.

1998-2003 Mille and Mille R (R having more Carbon Fiber bits, upgraded Ohlins suspension, couple more ponies, and upgraded wheels)

2004-2006 RSVr, RSV Factory, RSV Nera (2004 ??? Very exclusive, all carbon fiber bodywork, all Ohlins suspension all around MSRP: $29K)

2003-2006 Touno & Tuono Factory Racing (upgraded suspension, Carbon fibe bodywork, race pipe and chip). Touno is open streetfighter type bike. 2006 Tuono R is not out yet

2000-2003 Falco (described by Aprilia as Sport cruser with accent on sport)

2002-2003 Futura (wonderful touring machine)

1997-2003 RS250 (extremely beautiful 2 stroke V-Twin for the race track or street)

There are few other models such as Caponord (dual-sport), and Pegaso

If you are looking for any additional upgrades the following are low buck easy upgrades.

Pipe - you got it already
Airbox -
Flapper valve
Lightened Flywheel - http://www.apriliaforum.com/forums/s...ad.php?t=78438
PCIII + Dyno time for custom map.
Suspension Tuning
http://aprilia.rsvmille.home.comcast...sion_guide.htm

take it to the track over and over and over and over and over and over

After these you spend some really big bucks for more power.


My girls


[QUOTE=Nox]I took some pictures the other day. So far I'm impressed that the RSV come stock with a lot of features others pay a lot of money to add. The items that comes stock from the factory are a lot of carbon fiber body parts, steel braided cables, forged aluminum wheels, updated Brembo brakes, Ohlins damper, Ohlins shocks, Pirelli tires, integrated front and rear turn signals all the way around.

At this point, the only two items I am even thinking about changing are the levers and rear set, and those items are not bad to begin with (not a high priority).
