My only 2 complaints, the ram air duct looks like they bought it from honda, and the price is probably going to be 1/4 of what I paid for my house. Otherwise a very nice looking bike, for the high end performance. Hope they didn't mess with the performance in a bad way. Suspension, frame , brakes, chassis geometry, all changed makes me nervous. But I'm shure that with all the racing they have done pointed to all these, and where track tested. So it should be a sweet ride for those with the bucks.

I loved the 01 Aprilia. The 04 Mille R is what the 999 should've been. Aprilia is going to be eating Ducati's lunch in 04. The new Mille has the technology, the performance, and the looks. Aprilia is finally stepping into the spot light. I just hope their prices continue to remain "reasonable" even as they become recognized as a premier brand. IMO, the Mille is no longer the "other" Italian superbike, it is THE italian superbike.

You think they could race it against the Ducatis and win this time?

Front end is clearly ripped from the RC51, and quad headlights very VFR like. What happened to "original" Italian design?

The back end looks like a UFO from startrek. Uggghh...

Buy a Japanese bike and upgrade components.



Already done here.



The upgraded and more costly Honda lost. You have failed. There is no way you can live with this shame. Please commit seppuku. Immediately.

They raced it against Ducatis and won last time.



Well, a year or two ago, anyway.

KPaul, have you been hanging out with Burns?

You are a bitter little man also. Are you taking your V's every morning like Burns? (Vicodan, Viox, Viagra, Valium)

Default That doesn't count

That was an obsolete RC51, V-Twin. That wasn't against a 2003 Suzuki GSXR1000.
