    2007 Aprilia RSV 1000 R Sub-Frame Swap

    Hello Everyone.

    I am a new owner of an Aprilia. And oh my do I love the torque. Beautiful bikes, but I have started a new project! It is an 2007 Aprilia RSV 1000 R Factory, has 12,088km very clean bike. Now I am doing a sub-frame swap to a 2015 Ducati 1199. I absolutely love the love of the tail. I purchased an aluminum race tig welded sub-frame with integrated tail light / turn signals and fairings.

    I got a local shop here in town to fab the ducati race sub-frame up so it now bolts on to my Aprilia (Plug & Play). Looks amazing, but as any project the issue now retains to the seat. Use stock Ducati seat and RSVR seat and get an upholstery shop to do their thing... Or get something made from scratch...

    Any Suggestions or Recommendations for something local?

    It's going to be a case of suck it and see ..have you a Ducati seat to try as they may be easier to mod at the front to suit the tank feather than the aprilia item then get a shop to custom make a cover

    Well I sucked it up and I just took the bike to Tommy's Upholstery here in Victoria with the stock seat and ducati seat.
    Now they just gotta work their magic.

    I will post diagrams and pictures of the bike once the seat is fitted on the new ducati 1199 subframe to my aprilia tank. They said about 5 days so will see than!
