Summary:

This is a superb bike with the best components

Faults:

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.

General Comments:

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

Summary:

So much fun to ride... wish I could have owned one years ago

Faults:

Nothing as of yet.

General Comments:

This bike is an awesome machine. The engine is not too powerful, but it is in no way a slow bike by any means... and did I mention it sounds incredible? That V twin grunt sound makes it that much more fun to ride.

The bike handles like a dream... just point it where you want it to go and you're on your way.

It feels very light and extremely small compared to every other bike I have been on.

The only issue I have is that it is very uncomfortable... lots of pressure on your wrists and the foot pegs are way too high, but it's worth the pain.
