So can you put a 21'' wheel on the front or put the Dakar fork on?

I emailed Aprilia USA asking about the Trail. The reply read “We do not comment on new models.” I guess we are not getting it here in the US. It would have been nice if they just came out and said that.

You need to write back: "Thank you for the auto response. However, I am asking about an existing model that goes back to the early years of US importation. You stopped importing the motorcycle and BMW cannot make them fast enough to supply the demand, would you consider importing them again? Or do you have no interest in selling motorcycles that are in demand?" Perhaps they might be able to do better.

I tried to obtain one out of Canada and it was about impossible to get it in here as it is not on the "list" according to the customs guy I talked to. Requires much special attention, multiple departments and testing.

Hi fellow Peg riders,

I have my '03 Peg for 2 years and I enjoyed every day of it. It is not one of the most reliable bikes ever but it does what you need most of the time.

Meanwhile I am planning to add some extra storage via saddle bags. Does anyone can give some insight about side cases, saddle bags etc...

DL650 or Pegaso Trail

I currently ride a DL650 Vstrom, but am considering a more dirt oriented bike. I have previously had a DR650, but sold that to get the Vstrom for the touring comfort aspect, however the DL is just to road biased for sprited dirt riding with guys on GSs, KTMs, etc. My dilema is - do I make the DL more dirt worthy (suspension, remove fairing, etc)or do I get something like the Pegaso. I am not interested in the bigger 950/990/1200 range of ADV bikes.

Or should I wait for the KTM 690 Adventure model to be released. (the SM model is pretty cool).

Anyone got advice for me?

Thanks
Graham

Whats in a name?

Love the Peg and wish they imported it still. As you can see by my "name" there was a pegaso in my past. I still miss the old girl. But don't let my GS hear that

Question Thinking about it

Was looking at getting a Pegaso Trail but the only Aprilia dealer in town knows absolutly nothing about it.. Tried writing to the national rep but you know they're just out to sell stuff. Just wondering how well the pegaso handles rough terrain.. I'm not talking about full on singletrack but something reasonably rocky or sand/mud and how much does it weight? anything else I should know before considering this bike?

Hi there

About selling or not selling in the us. No doubt! Im Scandinavian! ;O)

But about the handling and weight, I got a opinion. The handling on gravel, sand and light mud terrain is okay. The standard tires is for the tarmac, so if you change these, there would be no problem. There is "only" 19" fronttires. 21" would problaly be better in terrain.

The weight is about 180 kgs. Aprilia said 168, but thats not true. Actually I find it a little heavy!! (Not GS1200 heavy offcourse!!)

The Trail should be a little cheaper than the F650GS or the Yam XT660R before its a bargain. Here in the very "taxy" Denmark, the F650GS cost 23K USD, the XT660R cost 18K USD and the Trail cost 14,5K USD. The "low" price on the Trail is becourse a special offer.) -Please dont comment the taxes!!!!!

I would do a review of the terrain duabillity in a week or 2. Im going into the deep swedish woods next weekend on a 4 day trip with a danish adventure club. Ill be back soon!

Trail in the wet

So everyone could see that the Trail could do a bit of offroad. The pic is from my training for my Iceland trip this summer...
