My New Aprilia

I picked up this Aprilia from Buck(thanks again dude!) just the other day and have been ripping up the streets on it every chance I have had since that time. The 1000cc Futura motor is outstanding, tons of power to play with! Here are a few pics:

Dude....I get a semi everytime it fires up(too much infortmation?)

Seirously though, I've had a Mille before('02, sold to H244) and the sound of that with the stock exhaust couldn't hold a match to the *amazing* grunt of the full ART exhaust on this beast. If I can get ahold of a quality video camera I'll get a sound clip

Dvl,
The motor swap was done my AF1 in new Braunfels, I'm sure Buck told you that. Your motor work was done my Micah, a tuning/Aprilia wizard! I'm pretty sure that your motor was rebuilt to RSV-R specs. There are some pictures of the work being done on the Aprilia forum (Micah like to take pictures of his work).
