I like it.

On the Aprilia forum, they are projecting an MSRP around $22,000.

Well I hope they put the motor in something like a Tuono for a bit less cash. Or that Honda wakes up and redoes the VFR.

Kind of funny, back a couple of years ago, the RSV Factory beat out everyone to win this - so, this is the second time Aprilia has brough this honor home !

i reckon that masterbike should be run on the road and the racetrack. i saw a video on motorcyclenews.com of a comparison between this aprilia and the new yamaha R1 with the crossplane crankshaft done on the road. not counting the price, they said they like the yamaha slighly more than the aprilia. partly because it had better bottom/mid range torque whereas the aprilia had to be revved more to get the torque.
