Aprilia RST Futura Feedback

Right now, Aprilia is really doing the biz, popping out bikes left and right, seemingly with each one going straight to the top of its class. In addition to their numerous championships in various two-wheeled disciplines, the success of their recent entries into the street bike market have caught a number of people by surprise. Including us. Aprilia's Mille won our Open Twins shootout, their Falco quickly became a staff favorite and their Scarabeo 150 is practically Italian sex in a practical package.

After being so impressed with theier previous offerings, we couldn't wait to fnially spend time on their new RST Futura sport-tourer. But did we like it as much as we thought we might? Have Aprilia finally failed to thouroughly impress us or is this just some mis-directed verbiage whose sole intent is to get you to read the story?

Once you've taken a look at the Futura, take a moment and let us (and Aprilia) know what you think of the bike that is their first entry into a territory nobody ever thought they'd attack.

Will they be succesful? Should they stick to racing bikes and race-replicas, or is this exactly what you need?
