Never had to give a bike so much gas and ride the clutch so much in my life as I did when I tested one.

I came very close to rolling with the Ducati Tricolore, but could not find one local at a price that made sense. My S1000rr is a sweet machine, but the Tricolore is beyond sexy.

Good luck with your search.

Sure it can be done. It's just a weird bike. No other bike needs so much throttle just to get moving. Even a mini-bike with a centrifugal clutch needs less throttle

Well . It should have been checked before they let the public ride it. The dude that was in charge even told me to ride the clutch before we got started. That VMAX needed more gas than I expected as well, but not like the R1

Yeah I rode it and did decent since i know the bike, but I felt it lag so i told the techs to crack it open. Fibers went bad. So we changed it.

If I had any choice Id try out that Aprialia
