I had a 2000 cup RS250 that I used for a few seasons as a track bike, and I now have my Late Brother's 1998 machine.... what are they like on the street? They are fun and nimble on the track, but fall a bit short of my '95 RS250 honda- which is not terribly surprising given the Aprilia is a street derived "Race replica" and spots the GP2 machine a good 60 pounds and probably 20 HP.

What is most surprising is how GOOD the RS Aprilia is when compared to the real race machinery- I still have my best ever lap on old #64, although I expect to drop that by a bit next season on the little Honda.
