Aprilia is posting their own spy shots?!



That's a great marketing angle!



Good looking bike, hope to see at a dealership soon.

Are you sure it's not a Ducati Monster photo retouched?

Since a V-twin 750 won't be getting a minimum of 140RWHP what good is it? Maybe a beginner's bike?

Rumor has it that they're going to put a basket on the front and market it as a scooter alternative.

If they release a v2 750 say hello to FX racing. Bet they get Duc 749 power out of it.

Default A Better Buell

If you extroplate HP numbers from the Tuono you get around 100 hp or so. Also I don't think it is conicidence that the engine happens to be World Super Sport legal 750cc. If it is like the 1000 cc V-Twin then it has some great features "V60 Magnesium. Longitudinal 60° V twin, four stroke. Liquid cooling with three-way pressurised circuit. Double overhead cams, mixed gear/chain timing drive, four valves per cylinder. Patented AVDC anti-vibration double countershaft. "
[i] Yep a smooth light engine for the Buell.. If a small Italian company can do it or a small Austrian company (KTM) can do it why not HD-Buell? oops forgot HD is maximizing it's profits for their aging Baby Boomer Managment golden handshake. HD is going out of business anyway by 2020.. High health care costs and pension costs of it's labor force are to blame. Maybe the U.S. health care system or lack of one is a competitive disadvantage for U.S. companies? Just a thought.
