  • I will never buy a Aprilia ever ever again. Service and pcs take forever to come in and there goes your season.

  • the only problem with Aprilia is the service. They dont respect warranty and you have to wait weeks and weeks for your bike to get fixed. Buyer beware. I had to sell mine out of desperation.

  • which bike would you consider a good choice for someone who likes sport bikes but also wants to use it to travel? obviously not enough cash to get two bikes. Or maybe do you have already a video about that?

  • So as a first time buyer for a motorcycle I've rode dirt bikes before and four wheelers. I definitely am considering the Aprilia seems way safer than a Harley Davidson with the technology that the Aprilia has. I looked at a Harley Davidson the other day and I am thinking about definitely going for a street bike now.

    Thomas FultonThomas Fulton16 天 前
  • The RS 660 is a great looking bike and it's getting pretty good reviews, but the ergonomics are too sporty for me to be an everyday street bike. The footpegs are high and the bars low. It's probably a better choice for a street-going sportbike for many people than a Gixxer or R6, or CBR600RR. I'll be interested to see the new Tuono 660, but even on the Tuono V4 the footpegs are high, so maybe the Tuono 660 will be, too.

  • I've been wanting to scratch an itch and join that "WHATEVER" class riding just because MAJORITY of my riding is either daily commuting or cutting up alone on country roads every chance I get and my r3 is just.... An r3 And my r1 is track days and SOMETIMES cutting up on crappy country roads. But that one has heart! 😋😍 and God forbid my local back roads AND my own lack of self discipline or possibly just a lifetime of pure passion for having f#$king fun!!! bruise and hurt my BABY 🤕🤒😫😢😭 ANYWAY... I really like the rs660 just never really had the right review that fills in the blanks as I PERSONALLY need. But all BS aside, yours helped ALOT and you deserve to know you're appreciated and trusted by me atleast. Lol Thanks fella

  • So I have an fz07 and was wondering if the confort and performance of this bike is worth the "upgrade". Is it only a tech upgrade or would you say this is a way better bike? I do like commuting and going for the occasional all day long ride and was wondering if it would feel about the same

  • What blows me away is how they make it sound like an actual sportbike. Like it doesn't just sound like any other parallel twin, or any other 270 crank twin either. It sounds serious in a way. I can't exactly describe it but you hear it and you're like "fuck, yeah that thing is fast". Hats off to Aprilia, I want a friggin sportbike like it's 2003 again

  • The Versys 650 LT remains near the top of your daily rider list and I know you made comparisons to the Tracer 900GT in that bike's video, but I'd like to see you actually ride the T900GT & then compare the two. I like both but the T900GT has cruise control- a huge bonus- so I gotta ask myself if I am willing to drop $3-4 grand more? I dunno. Like to hear your opinion.

  • Reading between the lines, this bike was a disappointment. A bike like this should be most of all FUN, with the icing of electronics, sounds like the engine is too tame for some real fun thrills. Too bad. But that's the market we are currently in. Gone are the days of beginners starting on 250-300's....a beginner would be fine starting on a Streetfigher V4 today. Trust me, I've road it and Zack was right...its a pathetic machine under 10rpm.

  • A bit of a miss on that plate under the rear seat. When you remove the rear seat, the front seat is not secured to the bike. The metal post that fits into the seat latch is on the rear seat, not the front. Slick design from that standpoint but it means that you can just lift the front seat off when you remove the rear.

    • @F1hotrod None of us matter now, look at how we're treated. The world was much more grand, people were happier and then the bombs fell. Look at us in this post modern world, working our selves to death for things that are stolen and destroyed in an instant. Police aren't protecting us, the government is bending over backwards for those who already have the means to take care of themselves and us common folk are left fighting over scraps. The bombs fell, our humanity was destroyed in the process, we're just sacks of meat now. None of matter, we're just numbers on a sheet that exist until we die. Oh uh, time for me meds again, the crazy is coming back up. Eat the apple sauce, be the apple sauce, let the crazy be consumed. The holy spirit shall not get me, I will consume its body and become thy name as art in my stomach.

      F1hotrodF1hotrod23 天 前
    • @F1hotrod No, no, everyone who mattered hated them. The people who bought them were sold to people who didn't know any better by salespeople trying to make ends met. Nothing practical about anything that has a lot of stuff you don't need. We made due with what we had after the war, but people wanted more power when a Honda Cub will get you to work and take the little lady to the corner store to get some tunes for the radio, some ice cream to soothe the lady troubles and some whiskey to help the kids sleep. Good ol days, good ol days.

      Last_RavenLast_Raven23 天 前
    • @Last_Raven they sold because many people liked them. They sold after the fireblade because many people liked them. And more people buy cars because many people want high tech and purchase cars because of it not in spite of it. I like how you take a sub section of people and apply their tastes to every human on earth. The fact is 600’s became too focused, to expensive and too impractical. But most people are going to buy the most cutting edge bike because people want what they perceive as the best. Now some manufacturers like Aprilia are coming back to more practical, livable and cost effective sport bikes, just like the first 20 years of the 600 class. I myself find the 4 cylinder 600’s more intriguing than these parallel twins because an inline 4 is more special . I think bikes like the CBR600 F4 were the sweet spot in middle weight sort bike design. Those bikes also looked cooler than modern sport bikes. Whatever, ride what you have and have fun Last_Raven.

      F1hotrodF1hotrod23 天 前
    • @F1hotrod They sold plenty because there was no other option. Just like plenty of people hate electronics or touch screens but still buy cars with them.
