Aprilia RSVR Factory description

2005 Aprilia RSVR Factory in the most desirable “Black Lion” colors. Excellent original condition, very well maintained and with new BT06 tires. I bought this bike in August 2015 and have only done 300 miles on it since then. I had not owned a bike for 30 years and really wanted to try a modern V twin. My thinking was to take my wife on the back for rides out and when I got the bike I bought a passenger seat pad for it. Of course being a spots bike it was too uncomfortable for her and so not long after I bought a 1975 Z1 which she loves riding on the back of. I have loved riding the RSVR but the Z1 got me into other older bikes and then I bought a Trident, and then a couple of other bikes. I have become hooked on owning bikes I had in the 1970’s and 80’s and have just bought an RZ350 on eBay, which is being delivered next week. So now with 6 bikes, the RSVR is not getting ridden at all and its time to make some room in the garage. 

 The bike has all the usual features found in the rare Factory edition: Ohlins forks and shock, adjustable Ohlins steering damper, superlight Oz magnesium wheels, and lots of extra carbon fiber (mudguards, side scoops, side panels). Paint is all original and is in excellent condition throughout. The only small flaw being 3 light scratches on the right side fairing (I tried to show them in the pics but they can be barely seen) which was done by the shipping company when they delivered the bike to me. The scratches are only on the decal itself. The decals on the tank have some very small bubbles (common issue) as do the tank protectors – both easily replaced. The bike had been maintained very well before I bought it and had the following work/upgrades done before i bought it: Power Commander PCIII installed Fuel pump filter replaced; Recalled fuel line replaced Map*2 switch Hausa Battery 2014 Evap canister & lines removed Valves checked at 21K Ohlins steering damper serviced 2014 OEM clear signal lenses Clutch slave seal replaced Engine oil and filter changed 500 miles ago Stock gearing 15/40 Puig dark smoke windscreen New DID chain Tail tidy Leo Vince pipes RSV4 footrests, allowing for rear brake master cylinder relocation (this is a good mod since it is very difficult to bleed the rear master cylinder in its stock location on the RSVR) Being a former race mechanic I went through the cycle parts completely when I got the bike and did the following work - all the below parts have less than 300 miles on them: Installed battery tender lead Ferodo sinterXRAC brake pads in front (these cost $200) Brake fluid replaced front/rear with Motul RBF660 Aftermarket levers Engine oil and filter (Motul 5100) Spark plugs OEM air filter Also, the fork oils seals were weeping so I had them replaced by Dan Kyle (Main Ohlins dealer in Seaside, CA) It did have Dunlop Q2 tires when I got it which were a bit old and hard so I recently fitted a set of new Bridgestone BT016 Hypersports (120/70, 190/55) which only have about 10 miles on them. Clean and clear CA title in my name, with registration paid through August. The bike has both factory keys (keys fit all locks) and the toolkit. Additional spare parts included: Factory passenger seat pad (unused) OEM air filter Hiflo oil filter and O ring Oil drain bolt washers 4 Spark plugs This bike is in outstanding condition and very well maintained. All electrics work and it runs and handles beautifully. It has no known faults and needs nothing doing to it. It is priced to sell simply because I need the space and have too many other bikes. The bike is sold as is, without warranty, and is located in Hollister, CA. I can help with loading if you use a shipper, since I work from home. $500 deposit with 24 hours and the remainder within 7 days via cash or bank transfer. Paypal accepted for the balance provided the buyer pays the fees. I uploaded a short walk round video, with start up from cold, on Youtube:

WSBK: 2012 Magny-Cours Results – Championship Decided by Half a Point

Tue, 09 Oct 2012

You would think carrying a 30.5 point lead into the final round of the 2012 World Superbike Championship would be a safe enough margin to win the title. Aprilia‘s Max Biaggi made it interesting, inexplicably crashing out of the first race at the finale in Magny-C0urs before scoring a fifth place finish in Race Two to give him a 0.5 point margin over Kawasaki‘s Tom Sykes to win the title. The 358 to 357.5 point difference is the narrowest finish ever in WSBK.

EICMA 2012: 2013 Aprilia Caponord 1200 Officially Introduced in Milan

Tue, 13 Nov 2012

The first images of the Aprilia Caponord 1200 broke last week but Piaggio has released new details and photographs of the adventure-tourer at the 2012 EICMA Show in Milan, Italy. Sharing its engine and frame with the Dorsoduro 1200, the Aprilia Caponord 1200 is the latest competitor in the adventure-touring segment, albeit with limited off-road aspirations. The closest competitor to the Caponord 1200 is probably the Ducati Multistrada 1200.
