aprilia Taureg

the 2010 EICMA silly season is already here; let the speculation begin.



Google article translation (Italian to English)

In many await, and after the new Super Tenere couldn't get even a new remake targato Aprilia, which already runs camouflaged in the streets of Italy and is ready to bring back the glory days of edurone that have captured the deserts of half the world. The name, of course, is inherited from history, Tuareg, and is ready to launch a glove challenge to the latest proposals on-off European and Japanese, although with slightly different connotations.
Who expects suffered from the 1200-twin engine, will have to wait a little longer. The new Touareg will offer initially on 750cc, with the propeller Shiver/Dorsoduro adapted to using front wheel from 21 "and charisma from true desert. This choice is also addressed to the containment of weight, that almost certainly will be less than 200 kg.
A subsequent version best suited to tourism road, will be offered with the engine 1200, the wheel by 19 and a tourist equipment from real. Waiting to know some more news, that we will find on Motocicismo in newsstand from 27 March, let's take a look at the rendering that offers as lines of the new endurona

What would you mount panniers to... There doesn't look like there is much on the rear to attach anything to.

Well this is an artist rendering, so most likely the final product will be more robust. But for my taste, I would not run panniers, but something like the great basin bag.

http://www.motorcycledaily.com/06apr...splacement.htm

Didn't see it on the first page so hell with it, I posted.
Looks like a smaller KTM 990A, I like it.

What are the chances they would bring the precious to the US market? Slim to none?

I would rather have the RXV - probably about 100 pounds lighter and much closer to being an 'enduro' than any bike that weighs over 400 pounds.

Aprilia has shown a willingness to bring new models to the US market in the past, unlike some of their Japanese competitors. If these things really exist, I'll bet there's a good chance we'll see them here.

Looks a lot like the Dorsoduro, which is here. Don't know why this one is not likely to show up. The more the merrier.

Why stop there, lets go for the big version http://www.tlzone.net/forums/press-r...ions-leak.html

I don´t know, if this is new: On the Aprilia Germany Homepage is a category for adventure-models. Hope they will fill it soon.
