    Nice ride - if I were in the market that would be a serious consideration considering that it is not priced stupidly given the extras. Best of luck.

    Cheers for that. Aye, I think it's one of the better paint scheme's considering some of the nightmares that Aprilia has come up with over the years. Black frame helps in that respect.

    I think so. They sound great with the baffles out but not too loud and in your face. Gives a good deep roar when you hammer it but not so loud that it 's a pain in the arse to live with. Build quality is good but obviously not as good as Akrapovic. Solid mid-range product.

    The radial brakes make a huge difference as well.

    - ECU upgraded to Map 2 for performance exhaust by Aprilia dealer

    How much of a difference does the sprocket sizes make mate?Been thinking of changing mine for a 42T at the back but never thought of putting a 15T on the front.

    Does it just give it a bit more acceleration but a bit less top speed?

    Huge difference! I had first changed the front sprocket to 15T and there was an improvement but then I spoke to "God Griff" who said I really needed to change the rear to 42T as well. These bikes have been hopelessly tall geared for top end speed (and I mean absolute max speed). The bike is so much easier to ride around town but you REALLY notice the acceleration on pull away! Griff and Zoe (Aprilia Performance), did me a really good deal on my chain and sprockets so I'd recommend him every time for anything Aprilia (get all my stuff from them).
