Aprilia Punches BMW

I love when companies take punches at each other, and since BMW had there S1000RR Ad, Aprilia decided to take a solid punch at BMW. Taking the table cloth magic trick and turning it around, Aprilia view themselves as motorcycle company building true racing machines and the Ad says it all. But I still love both machines, you can’t ever have too many machines to ride!

Right now in the market you have a lot of choices for machines, from Japanese, to Austrian, to Italian, they have all evolved into the creatures that they are today. This is probably the best selection of motorcycles available in the market period, with a choice of service providers. Some sell motorcycles with a passion and some churn them out like cattle. I have managed to get most of the prices of these machines with their warranty periods, and in my opinion warranty is very important. Out of the bunch Yamaha and Suzuki are the worst and they don’t really care because those machines sell themselves, but oddly enough they have gotten a lot more expensive then they were before. Who would have thought you can buy a full thorough bread Italian beauty for the same price of Japanese engineered machines. Each one of these bikes are suited for a different person, they are all far from the same but I’m still surprised when I was asking around. I’m a huge fan of Ducati and it is still one of my most favorite machines to ride, you feel like your riding a machine with an attitude of its own. KTM came out of the corner punching with the RC8, no one expected a machine such as this from the small Austrian firm. Now out of all of them the best value for riding machine is the Aprilia RSV4-R, everything about it is Italian, the engine, the look, and the attitude, it exemplifies the evolution of Aprilia and it has more meaning then the machine itself. Out of all of them I think the Aprilia is the best value for machine, why go for a Japanese with a bad service save for ZED Motors when you can go for an Italian for a 400 KD difference. When I buy my motorcycle I want it to be from the guy who sells motorcycles not a guy who sells a Corolla and a motorcycle, out of all of the companies I would honestly only approach Tristar, Bike World, and ZED Motors. But still what a lovely menu of machines.

Update: Updated the price of Ducati and included the S1000RR, now thats a full menu.

Aprilia commemorates Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen with special RSV 1000 R livery

The new Aprilia RSV 1000 is one amazing piece of machinary and I have read a good amount about it. It has been a while since Aprilia have made this much, its an iteration of this machine that has long been anticipated. Now to commence with it hitting the race track they have changes it looks to fit the transformer movie and I think it looks really cool. I especially like that helmet, I would want to get my hands on that halmet with the decepticon logo. Too bad the rider took a bit of a spill at the end, I always hate to see a rider or a bike get hurt, hopefully it wasn’t too bad.
