2002 Aprilia Rally 50 from United Kingdom
Very fast, very reliable, very expensive, very economic, amazing when things don't go wrong
I got the bike second hand. I have been riding it for only 4 months, and have clocked up 7000 kilometres.
2 weeks after I got it, the exhaust gasket snapped, but this wasn't a big deal, as I just got the sports exhaust I wanted - cost £110 fitted.
A fuse blew, but that was caused due to attempting to start on a flooded engine.
I crashed it; I had to get a new front mudguard, and front panels. Cost £250 2nd hand. Over £350 brand new.
At its next test, I need a new rear tyre and suspension. Going to be around £200 for these 2 parts. Very very expensive, but it is worth it.
The seat doesn't wear at all.
It is fast off the mark, and de-restricted it will hit 45, 50 with a sports exhaust.
It is very expensive to get new parts.
My mates crashed their Chinese imports; not as bad as my crash, and they were written off.
I have ridden it over 200 miles in one day, doesn't struggle with long journeys.
Handles well off-road also.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
