I love this bike!


Broken rubber strap connecting the hard bag to the license plate bracket. That's it.

General Comments:

Fantastic bike: very fast, handles great, very comfortable for 2-up, and looks awesome. It can keep up the the sporties in acceleration and handling.

Single complaint is the quite exhaust. The clutch is louder than the exhaust note.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes

Great performance, un-tiring cruising, big comfortable seat, effortless handling, and the exclusive Aprilia name. One of the best-kept secrets in biking. Highly recommended.
