Nice. The 04+ RSV1000s look tempting as well as I've seen a few listed for under 5K. Seems that electronic components and wiring are the weak point of Italian bikes though

Not on the Ape, I['ve had two RSVR Factory, an 04 and an 05, the first one had a rectifier recall and a couple other minor recalls, other than that it's bomb proof. It just doesn't have the grunt of the Duc though, and the sound is decent but again not quite as good.

Word I learned something new. And yes the power figures are similar to the triumph but I have an inkling the aprilia handles better. The daytona is heavy and hard to change direction but very stable throughout corners
