This is a superb bike with the best components
This is my second Mille; the first bike, I rode it 19,000 miles, and didn't have one problem with the bike.
My second Mille, the same, no problems.
My only complaint is the seating position is very aggressive, and it's hard to find neutral sometimes.
Other than that, this is the best handling, most reliable exotic bike on the road.
These bikes are very rare, which I like. When I go to bike shows, people are all over this bike. People ask can they take pictures, and can they sit on the bike all the time; even people who have never heard of Aprilia, say it's a sexy looking bike.
Aprilia's racing heritage speaks for itself, and they pass that technology down to the street bikes. This bike will make you a better rider, giving you confidence in the turns, and great balance at high speeds.
Nothing sounds like a V-twin; I've owned other bikes, and nothing else compares.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
