What we want to buy today – Aprilia RSV-R1000

Aprilia RSV1000Early RSV1000s are still a cheap way into Italian sports bike owners. They are also a really good bike. Like anything Italian they can give you some headaches during ownership, that’s part of their charm!

Here’s a cracker that caught our eye…

It is on an 02 plate, 2002 bike. Low miles at just over 22,000 miles. Later big valve motor. The seller takes up the patter

“She has nine dealer service stamps and was also serviced at Aprilia Performance last year and has done less than 300 miles since. All owners books and manuals with it, X2 keys.

This is the R model, so has, as standard, Ohlins suspension front and rear, OZ lightweight forged alloy wheels, Carbon fibre panels, Ohlins steering damper.

Also comes with a single and dual seat.

X3 exhausts, standard bazooka, an Akrapovic which needs repacking and the carbon which is fitted to the bike.

It has a Power Commander 3 fitted,

Dynojet quick shift,

57MM throttle bodies,

Open carbon airbox, chipped to suit.

Adjustable levers,

Frame mushrooms,

RSVI have owned three of these and this one is by far and away the best, smooth and blisteringly fast, well set up and just a treat to ride.

Now, I don’t have to sell so don’t waste your time (or mine) with daft offers, my price is pretty firm as it comes with a lot of very expensive extras.

It is not a minty mint garage queen, odd chip and mark, decals looking wee bit tatty here and there. Look at the pics, it is, however, a sound example of a terrific bike.

I might consider a nice P/X, something interesting?? What ya got

These bikes are rising in price and are a good investment.
