So far, I'm not impressed.

So the RSV-R has radial brake calipers. So what? Will it warp the discs even faster?
And the RSV has new footrests. PTL! Let me get my check book out. Not.

The Tuono? A typical pub burner. It'll keep the Mostro's and cruisers company. Not bad looking, but not practical either IMHO.

So what'll it be? So far, nothing by Aprilia. Let's hope they've got something else up their sleeve.

Remember the thread: 'what would you change?'?
They sure didn't read it.

Just my two �cents

yeh, Radial brake if the Mille needed em! I suppose they come in handy for changing the small carbon discs to the massive steel ones when youre caught in a shower on the way to the pub.
Think I'll stick with the Falco!

I think Aprilia financial situation with Moto Guzzi is the reason we're not seeing big changes for now. Give it time.

Trouble is, our illustrious bike journos have the attention span of a goldfish & unless manufacturers keep dazzling 'em with new technotrickery and entertaining them with fresh young lovelies they just keep forget..t...i....n........zzzzzzzzzz........(that Aprilia still exists).

Hence the new paintjobs & footpegs!

But look what (Aprilia owned) Moto Guzzi shows of; A semi faired race bike with a beautiful look and nice spec's. But a bit to little power as always from Moto Guzzi. They are testing market reactions with a suggested retail price of 19000 Euros! Too expensive IMO!
