    It gives you more confidence

    Otherwise you theoreticly can go a bit quicker on a v2, because its slimmer and better mass centralisation. But I think for most riders it just that the aprilia with its stable chasys and linear power delivery makes you feel like your rossy

    R 8, I've had my RSV 4 weeks now and find I can get about 20mph more in some corners than on my previous bike, no drama either it seems to take a lot of the effort out of it..

    tis true, the ape handles so well it inspires confidence. My mate rode mine today (having got off his GSXR 750) and now wants a Factory. He could not belive the difference knowing both bikes make aprox same bhp, how quick the Ape is, and how well it goes around the bendy bits!
