what is the aprilla you posted? I was drooling over a used 2007 SXV 450 last week They want $4500 for the one I was looking at. It had 1100 miles on it.
Thats the 750 SM - loosly based on the Shiver 750 - Its basically a bit less Bonzi version of the SXV - Its a bit more real world - The SXV is a total go directly to jail, do not pass go, all out , raged edge kind of bike that is very maintence intense. You must change the oil like they reccomend or you will pay . As for the top end replacments that everyone was fussing about when they first came out, dont sweat it. Do a top end when you notice a drop in compression, the factory Aprilai team raced half a season on the original top end. Thye only replaced it to error on the side of safety. Thier second year, it went the whole season on one top end.- As long as you are willing to beat it everytime you ride it, its a great bike. Slower riding or long distances, well, its not so good - If I lived more in the moutians , Id have one to roll out and embaress liter bikes all weekend -
F4I - Here what I think -- as if your intrested ,
Bonnie = sexy , do a nice exhaust and take it to the hardcore Cafe thing, man, would that be fun !!
Aprila = Holigan, a smile maker on every ride.
But, after having finally ridden the wifes Ducati Hyper Motard, Im a fan ! FUN , FUN bike that makes cool sounds and handles amazingly ! It not an everyday bike, but, its a riot ! Plus, if you wanna ride one , Ducati is doing a demo day in Lake James , just a bit west of here -
