Panigale vs. S1000RR vs. F4R vs. RSVR

I bet they weren’t doing the speed limit when they were making the video! lol

I seriously want all of these machines in my garage, beautiful machines, I do love the Italian creations. Its a very fair comparison between the machines and their real life use. I loved the video, very well shot. I have tried three out of the four bikes, I haven’t had a chance to get my hands on a new MV Agusta yet but I will try one in the near future. As usual the BMW is top dog, its just such a well designed machine. The Panigale in my opinion is the sexiest machine out there, even though it gets a little too hot, its still one very enticing machine. The Aprilia is an excellent machine as they said but I think it’s made more for the track then the street.

My Preference of Bikes:

  • Ducati Panigale
  • MV Agusta F4R
  • BMW S1000RR
  • Aprilia RSVR

Nissain GT-R vs. Aprillia RSV-4

Both of these machines are race bred for the track with only speed and grip in mind, very agressive and very intimidating, and I love when they pit them against each other on the track. They can both handle themselves around the track and the bike doesn’t always win against four wheels but its always nice to see a challenge. Its known that a car can always brake later then a bike into a turn so it carries more speed but a bike can accelerate much faster out of that turn, I just love seeing the dance between these two machines.

Aprillia, Vespa, Motto Guzzi, and Piaggio Motorcycles All in One Spot

Feels like Italy has just moved into Shuweikh, I have known for a while that Aprillia and Vespa were in Kuwait but I didn’t know that most of Italy is housed in one location. Just behind City Center is the motorcycle shop for Aprillia, Vespa, Motto Guzzi, and Piaggio with a large selection of motorcycles. There is probably a motorcycle or scooter for every person, every color or king from retro to modern to aggressive to comfortable to sport in the showroom.

I’m a huge fan of Piaggio Motorcycles and its my first time seeing such a large selection of them. Whats popular in Kuwait is the Vespa scooters, I have seen some women driving them, and I have heard some guys driving it all the way to the border. Never underestimate those machines, some of those scooters can hit up to 180 kph which is ridiculously fast for a scooter, I never imagined that they did. Then there is the Piaggio three wheeler, and there is a black one which looks like a combat machine with all the bells and whistles to be driven by Robin, because Batman has the cooler bike.

Now for the Aprillia, the main reason that I went to the showroom, it has been too long since Aprillia has come up with the revised version of the RSV, since 2004. This machine looks better in person then any picture can depict and its reasonable priced. MSRP in Kuwait is 4990 KD for the Aprillia RSV which is pretty low for an Italian Motorcycle, and its sounds oh so good. Thanks to Ahmed for starting one up for me, I was impressed and it sounds so good for a stock machine, the Italians know how to make their machines look good and go fast. If you have any inclinations for two wheeled machines then I recommend that you head there directly, and if you like to see all the color combinations then head over there.
