are Aprillias getting cheaper or is it just me?
seems like the last time I looked at sportbikes, Aprillias were at the upper end of the food chain. Still under their Ducati rivals, but definitely up there.
Last weekend, I went to a dealer w/ a friend who was looking for a used bike and they just happened to be an aprilia dealer. BTW, Aprilia is returning to superbike, so they'll be BMW's rivals next yr.
their top of the line RSV 1000 R factory is $18k?!? (last I looked, the top was a RSV Mille R factory at above 20k)
the SR50 sport scooter last I checked was $5k, now it's $3k?
The Tuono 1000 R (non-factory) last time I checked was priced similar to a K1200R... but now I see that the Tuono 1000 R Factory (lots of carbon parts, OHLINS SUSPENSION, forged OZ wheels, etc.) goes for 17k.
still only 139hp though.... if it only had more power and if the factory came in blue instead of red graphics, this would be one sexy bike.
