    Ohlins front & rear shocks, steering damper, carbon fibre front and rear mudguards, OZ liteweight wheels , carbon fibre dash hood and I think the side panels were carbon fibre too.

    The Mille R is 'better equipped' as it comes with ohlins suspension and oz wheels and IMO looks a little more 'trick'.
    I have owned a mille and a mille R and ive loved both, performance wise no real difference but I did prefer the 'R' at Brands!!!!! Maybe it was in my head but it felt a little more willing thru the corners...........

    Yep, as above....R version has more bling than Mille, but basically the same engine, although I think the Colin Edwards rep has bigger throttle bodies....They're all excellent as far as I'm concerned!

    Look at the different years ....

    Aprilia RSV 1000 Mille R

    the gen1 are better bikes, they dont have the over complicated can bus electrics which always go wrong, and the 800 a pop
    for the generator burn outs that affects the 04-08 gen2 bikes.
