    Previous Mille owner looking another

    Hi all, I'm an ex Mille owner and I'm looking another. I sold my 2002 aprilia rsv Mille about 4/5 years ago for a 2009 repsol blade, the blade was an awesome bike but I'd more fun on the aprilia and I'm looking another. Can any members point me in the right direction as to price and things to look out for.

    I'm from Northern Ireland and aprilia's are a rare breed over here, there are very little on the buy or sell sites or gumtree. I posted in Northern Ireland biker buy and sell and got a few replays with people selling 2000 models for£3000 which I think Is too much, I sold my 02 which was mint 4/5 years ago for £2500.

    A guy sent me a private message on Facebook yesterday saying he had a mint 04 rsvr in yellow (always liked the yellow) it might of been registered in 04 but it's not a 04 as it was same shape as my own, if I can remember correct they changed shape in 04 to the dual cans??

    Anyways says he might be interested in selling if he got the right money and is looking £3300, I replied saying it was too dear and I could get a new shape rsvr for that but if he dropped the price I'd be interested (really want that bike) he said it's an 04 with 7700 miles and he's second owner from new, what do you guys think?

    So it's actually an 02 model as 03 models had different seat units radial brakes ..black frame and swingarm

    It's a fair price if it's a clean bike..it has low miles

    It's either that or come shopping over the water

    It's a lovely looking bike but to me price is high, I paid £3300 5 years ago for my silver rsv with roughly 5000 miles. Still could be tempted to buy it if nothing comes up

    I have an 04 gen 2 and it's a great bike. Be careful of the milage and check the old mots. The earlier Gen2s were prone to setting the odometer to zero if the battery goes flat or is replaced. 6k seems very low for a 10 year old bike!! If it's genuine then you have a very tidy standard bike for reasonable money. Get it for 3k and it's a bargain.

    This is a particularly good price for a proper 04 RSVR, it's in the Edinburgh area I believe

    Wrong man to ask I'm tiny. 5"6 and 10st tops. I find it comfortable although I'm right up to the tank to reach the bars and I can only just get both feet on the floor it is a big bike so I'm sure would suit a taller rider. On the whole I love the bike. I've toured and done plenty of trackdays and it does both without falling apart. Over in the UK you would get a newer bike for the same money might be worth the shipping?

    Fly over and ride home maybe, wouldn't like to buy something that I haven't seen. Could sound like a bag of spanners
