Default 2016 Aprilia RSV4 RF. 201 BHP

The competition is bringing some amazing new meat to the grid! Aprilia finally addressed the weak point in the RSV4, HP. Hopefully it's putting down mid 170's to the wheel. Rated at 201 to the crank.

I love all of Aprilia's sport/race bikes. Can't wait for this one. No way in hell I'll be able to afford it new though.

By the way, nice avatar, c0zgrove.

Those were the days. Won't ever see those guys drifting anymore with all the electronics going on.

Eh. Maybe with the soon-coming switch to the spec ECU and Michelin tires we'll see something a bit more exciting than we have the past few seasons.

Good looking bike... Unfortunately, I'd look like a monkey ****ing a grapefruit trying to ride it. I had to give up my Isle of Man, racing dreams about five years ago. The old leather suit just wouldn't quite zip up right. *sigh*

Hey. Nothing wrong with that. I'm 6'5", so I'm too big for any bike, yet I still ride even though I look totally ridiculous.

I'm 6'2" and 'stocky' and looked like a shriner riding my Triumph Speed Triple. All I needed was a bell and honk-horn.
