Is that a ladder in the back of the bikes? Must be tall bikes. I like the red better then the silver/gold. The silver/gold has a weird headlight shape.

I bet it will be around $10K at least. For a bike that only makes 90hp it doesn't seem like a good deal. I'd rather buy a Speed 3.

I know this is not a road bike, But it is an Aprilia.
It just has the coolest exhaust of any bike. Mainly the application of it. Utilizing useable space & not wasting any.

I just can't imagine any entusiast spending that kind of money on a motorcycle with an automatic transmission. It takes all the fun out of it!

OUCH, I missed that! The FJR E-version is clutchless with unified brakes. If you can't slip the clutch it shouldn't be on two wheels!

Because Torque is where its at for most folks. If the torque curve on this thing buries the niner I would gladly downgrade my top end horsepower for bottom end grunt.

Plus if the suspension is significantly better than the niner I would be all over it. Of course for 1/4 what that bike cost new I could do some serious upgrades to the nine suspension and power delivery improvements too.

Probably better to pay for the kid's college first

I was comparing it to the Speed Tripple. Because that is what it will compete with for that price. The Speed Tripple will have more torque and more top end than this bike. The Tripple also has top shelf suspension.

Below is a cheaper SF certified automatic. The Priller is a beautiful option for Manual challenged. If a newbie rides it they better get heavy duty side guards.

Automatic bikes should come with a rack to strap your purse down with.

Get a quote on insuring a speed triple. I think you might be surprised. Many insurers have become aware of its reputation as a hooligan bike and you pay accordingly. A buddy of might just went out and bought the speed triple and just called his insurance company to add it. They sent him a bill for $3k a year insurance.

Why not a tampon dispenser and training wheels as well?

Nope. Kids are exempt from insults about clutchless transmissions. I would say that 15 is around the cut-off for exemption. After that, they can use a clutch like the big kids.

Better lower that age, I started using a clutch around 10 on a RM80

I was trying to give the late bloomers a break. We couldn't afford dirt bikes when I was a kid, so I didn't learn clutch until I learned to drive a car at 15. You better believe I've never owned an automatic since I could drive, though.

Confession: I took the driver's test on a CT90 clutchless step through. Now I feel better. After numerous slow near misses on the CBR600, in the MSF class I learned to slip the clutch. Clutchless heavy bikes are challenging to control. Thus a lot of used clutchless bikes have side scratches and therefor a bargain. I bet you can pick up this auto Priller used from an overwhelmed newbie cheap next year...of course in San Francisco.

I met a guy last summer with cruise control on his bike. he uses it even in the twisties... of course he rides like a grandpa with hemorrhoids. I just don't understand why he bothers riding a bike.
