My naked bike

Riding that to the Hill Country would be a blast. I used to ride my naked bike back and forth from Ventura, Cali to Houston. Naked rocks but I can see where 160 hp would start to make that neck ache

These days, if I can't at least put a rear rack on the bike, it's a lost cause for me.

It's a great bike for sure. I prefer yellow though. Gold rims would've been even better.

Apparently Aprilia USA purposely disabled one of the headlights' low beam, so both will come on only for high beam.

The problem is the range is like 90miles per tank and thats being somewhat conservative. Check the Aprilia Forums...its what turned me off.

Ohhhh. I see what you mean now.. Yessir!! That would be a problem.
My Honda was getting around 200-250 miles per tank. And that was with an average of 90mph Good times..
