It depends.
You have to like V-Twin first.
Compare to Japanese 1k bikes, it's expensive, heavier, harder to ride, harder to find parts, expensive to fix/maintain and not as fast.

But.
It's an Italian and there's different taste to it (and it's freakin gorgeous).
You appreciate that, the bike's for you.
I wish I was taller to ride a priller...

There are couple at Patrick's shop.

http://www.motorcycles-unlimited.com/bikesforsale.htm

Also go to www.apriliaforum.com and ask some questions around.
They are all very nice people, experience riders and love who they ride.
Good luck.

Good choice but, it is a twin. So, it is going to have some bite.

A Twin is a whole different ride, fun but NOT like an inline 4.

I would think that the Japs would have it beat in the ease of Maintenance category and the price tag. But if you want to look kewl and standout.

hmmm im not a huge huge fan of the bike its pretty and all but the price compared to bikes is just pathetic....I mean a bike will out perform it on every level exept torque but the torque is off set big time by the added weight....PLus you dont need low rpm torque on a race track anyways....

I think the are sexy but if i was going to spend the money i would look at the ducati way b4 i looked at the ape

I work on my own bikes, lessen the maintenance load and increase seat time... and still leaves money to upgrade.

I have seen a few too many 999 Ducs not work, tool kit and towstraps are packed when riding with one... OTOH I haven't seen the same problems with the 749's or 600 Ducs.

i hate ducatis (especialy the headlights) but the aprilias are really sexy, and the "top" speed is along with the busa (only after calulating the real speed[9% difference from the readings]) on the RSV 1000-R Factory the true "top" speed is around 180 mph (230 km/h)
and yes i really want to stand out everyone around here has hondas, or suzukis, kawasakis, and yahmahas, i want somthing italian, ya know have a little class and style.... lol
