Default Boink, boink

Boink, boink. That's the sound that the clapped out suspension units on my guzzi used to make, hence: boinkers.

Mmmmmmmm, flaaaaat blaaaaack!



Perhaps a decade of inhaling Rust-Oleum fumes has finally done permanent damage, but flat black rules! If I can't have mile-deep bass boat metalflake, make mine flat black...



But. Pass on the Tuono, let me know when the Mana is in production with design tweaks based on website feedback, thakyouverymuch.

Mmmmmm....Tuono. I want one of these things SOOOOOO bad.



But I lack the funds, and have heard that all of the Tuonos coming to the states have already been spoken for.



A lower cost, slightly less trick Tuono would appeal to me greatly if (when?) Aprilia builds it.

Bing-Bing! Aprilia hits the mark, again! How can I choose between the Blue Marlin and this work of art?

Aprila again seems to have it's finger on the pulse of the motorcycling public...but can it get its hands on the wallets? Maybe?



How many people buy an inexpensive bike, and put enough extras on it that it's nearly as expensive as the Aprilia, yet have the same basic bike as thousands of other people.



Geez, Ohlins shocks are over $1000, carbon fiber bits...VERY expensive, custom seat...another $400 or so. It all adds up.



If I were in the market for a streetfighter, I'd seriously consider the Aprilia.

I love it. Too bad it's going to be such a rare piece. I think it's interesting that Aprilia acquired Laverda and shortly thereafter release a streetfighter that takes design cues directly form the old marque.
