Naked Italian style to impress — Aprilia News

APRILIAВ is going a bit of a lean spell at the moment but of a takeover by fellow Italian should make the future

How the model range of the two manufacturers progress is open to speculation but in the Aprilia has certainly gotВ its out of the big 60 degree V twin engine.

It life in the RSV Mille road and, as well as powering a World Superbike racer in can be found in various states of in the CapoNord trailie, the sports Futura and the Falco, which is half way between the Futura and the

Looking for another application was difficult but there is talk of a cafe racer prototype, the Marlin, being put into if enough interest is shown, but will all be put on hold for the time

The Tuono Racing was released to run up the latest craze of … like the Monster from and Kawasaki’s Z1000.

Based on a RSV R Mille it follows the theme with high and minimal fairing and when I had the to sample the big V-twin I was looking to see how Aprilia aproached this new

First impressions were The yolk mounted handlebars give good leverage and to make the steering fast and will be a pain at higher and this bike is capable of serious speeds. Aprilla has the leadВ of many competitors and the V twin engine is in the same of tune asВ the Mille, so you get the 130bhp.

Not the price is tacky — at you have got to be seriously keen to that sort of outlay. OK a limited edition with 300 being released, you get all the kit from the R Mille and that includes OZ Ohlins suspension and Ohlins damper.

HoweverВ there is a cheaper model for seven and a half grand, and ifВ the marketing men have one step too far in their quest for application for a very good

My time on the bike was limited, but it extremely usable and I admit to a fan of high bars. That engine is a cracker in this of bike, but when I got off the machine and a step back, my mind was up: it looked too much like a Mille.
