Default Re: Aprilia

Their website claims they have the "first automatic motorcycle ever seen." I guess they never saw a Hondamatic 400 or 750, which actually *were* full-size motorcycles not a scooter pretending to be one.

Hey Aprilia don't forget about us over here in the USA when the clean burning two stroke sport bikes come out. I'll be first in line for that. Glad to hear that Aprilia is doing well here. In general, I find their product line much more appealing than Ducati's. Let the flames begin!

Default Triump

Triump is poised to become a force in the sportbike market it would appear, also. The new Daytona is going to be putting out 150 at the crank they claim, and the TT600 is supposed to be refined and get more power for 2002.



More competition the better. I saw an Aprilla RSV Mille 1000R this past weekend, and road with the guy in a pack of 15 or so through some twisties. It sure is a gorgeous bike, and oozes expensive breakable parts
