How close, we wondered lo those many months ago, could an RC51 Honda come to the spicy Italian Aprilia Mille R if it had that bike's upscale suspension components? Now we know. In the battle for our favorite bike in--yes come to think of it, maybe big twins are our favorite class--in ourever-ongoing thirst for moto-enlightenment, we bring you live from WillowSprings International Raceway, a Motorcycle.Com Inc. Production -- Bad Bruce's bodacious bolide, the RC51 with the big guns. And in this corner the defending champ, the Italian Scallion Aprilia Mille R. It's mostly a clean fight.
