Aprilia RSV mille

No one in 1998 counted on such a good start of the aprilia rsv mille. Indeed. then, the manufacturer of Noale have had only experienced in the production of scooters, small two-stroke motorcycle racers and the middle class, but the Mille was the first attempt in the class of large engines and this hot segment of sports bikes. Completely newly developed RSV Mille at the beginning conquered with excellent finishing, great handling and high reliability.

The functionality of the brutal V2, made ​​by the Austrian Rotax,  won in Motorrad test of endurance 50,000 km and proven to be a quality and stable engine.

Besides that the aprilia rsv mille was and still is liked by many motorcycle riders, what was proven by the sales. After all it was shown, that the demand was greater than production. Thus arose dissatisfaction with troubleshooting the complaint and bad stock of parts at agents with spare parts and long waiting periods of certain parts of which are still occurring in the letters of users of this engine.

Anyone interested in used aprilia rsv mille , must bear in mind two things. The first. used practically for free. And the other – the second hand is then very difficult to sold.

This makes it the best choice model from 2004, in addition to a modern look also offers a few more horses – 139 HP. Their racing qualities the aprilia rsv mille Factory proved to masterbike test in 2006. when it was the fastest motorcycle on the test. However, if you look at the, invested/what you get, the smartest investment is in 2002/2003 model.

What to check:

Documents or year of manufacture of the motorcycle. Many motorcycles occurs where advertise year of first registration. and many are advertised as R version ( which is better, but after a closer view we see that it is a standard model ). Since 2001, the engine is considered more polite, “softer” controls, better react under pressure, and has better brakes. Of course, it is necessary to emphasize the SP model from 1999, only this model engine will be hard to find.

But it is particularly interesting because of its rarity and hand-crafted engine from the factory Coswort and basically offers 145HP, with minimal rework it quickly finds itself at the numbers over 170HP. As for this year, a rarity .

Aprilia RSV SP racing is a special version of the model Aprilia rsv mille, which differs from the standard model, with dual exhaust system, higher power, hand crafted engine and different cylinder heads.

In the end, the engine with increased number of kilometers is not to be feared, because Rotax engine is considered one of the more durable engines and is not difficult to find instances with the 70,000 or 80,000 kilometers, which are in great shape. On model R is needed to check the status of Ohlins front forks and rear shock absorber, as well as the state of forged magnesium wheels, which should not be damaged.

Some models. due to the accumulation of garbage in the tank may have a problem with the incorrect fuel pressure, and can be nervous in middle rpms. It is also necessary to recall that the engines which have replacement exhaust and modified airbox and are not set in service shop, or do not have a replacement chip, can operate more rough and turbulent.

Our motorcycle is aprilia rsv mille, production year 2002. At the time of writing, it traveled 38,000 kilometers and is looking forward to more, that will be accumulated. It also has a few modifications to improve ride and the engine itself and the appearance of it:
