The tank is all installed. I rode about 75 miles yesterday, all off-pavement, and the fuel light didn't even come on!



I can definitely feel the extra weight on the front, but it's worth it.

Just not many of these bikes out there, period. ApriliaForum has a dedicated subforum for them, but it is mostly SXV-centric. Still, it's a great technical resource.

But I think this is the thread that you're looking for.

I just ran down to the gas station after putting 75 miles of dirt riding on last weekend, and it got just around 30mpg--a little higher than I was expecting!

There are many minor threads with interesting infos and comments:

But, no, the RXV has never been blessed with a "specific bike" thread... Is this gonna be the one? Don't know yet but I subscribed anyway... Very interested in this little monster...

Malcolm Smith has a couple of them 'upstairs' he'll let go for $2500. No titles though. Gray market I guess.

Talk about a white elephant.

I have one that has a few hundred miles on it, just never got the time to ride it and am thinking of putting it up for sale. It is in like new shape and had the DE-restriction done before I picked it up from the dealer when it was new.
keep an eye in the classifies for the posting. It one powerful Thoroughbred and those who have one know it is what it is and that's a lot.

If I were going to spend too much money on a dirt bike, it would be a Freeride 350.

Anyone aware of the reliability of the RXV450? I found one for 2500 and am wondering if they are lemons or not. The bike has 250 miles on it and looks pretty new.

Thanks,

All the problems seems to come from 2006 and early 2007 models. Later models should be good if treated properly.
Mind you, I am writing about what I have been reading on this bike (a lot since it's one of my secret dream) but I do not own or ride one.
