Hi guys, just after some feedback on these apparantly awesome bikes. I'm in the market for a liter bike and these are the top of my list. It'll be the Factory version. I've jumped on the Aprillia forums and hunted around there as well as going through all the youtube vids and asking q's on there from the owners of the featured bikes. So I've come to know a little about them, and from my research, the negatives things that seem to effect 'some' bikes are things like the commonly faulty brown connecter, the problematic rear brake, the battery draining issues, flat spots if not tuned correctly, and difficulty in finding neutral. Thing is, I don't know anyone personally who has owned one, and was wondering how other owners experience was during ownership? I know all the good things, radial mounted Brembos, Ohlins shocks, Marchesini rims, strong rotex v twin, looks AMAZING etc....but yeah I'd just like to know what It's actually like owning one? How was servicing compared to a jap bike $ wise, and how was the cost of ownership overall? Painfull or pleasent lol? I hear they are strong reliable bikes, and one of the 'better' Italian brands reliability and even parts price wise....? Again, this is just from net based research. I plan on putting a set of mivv or Declevic short pipes and a tune to match... so mod wise, that's it. So I'm not after more power or 100 mods that will take away from the beauty of it's original style. I ultimately want a nice looking, nice sounding, well handling original bike that i can cruise through the streets with, and take to the hills as much as possible, that won't cost the earth to maitain. Appreciate any feedback guys Cheers, sw.
