Howdy folks, I got myself enthralled by a 2008 Aprilia RXV 4.4 (450) and dispute knowing how unrefined, gas guzzling, garage needy and over-hp'ed this Italian hag is......I think I want one!! Despite all my sensibility and education I can't help but want an RXV. I know I'd be better off with a WR250R, 2007 650X Challenge or a newer Husky before remotely thinking an Aprilia would make a decent DS! :loll I know the jury's verdict is in, court adjured, the fat lady sang but........damn, this bike just looks so bloody cool!! Can anybody give me any credibility to the RXV and it's DS characteristics? What do you think.......move on to something else?? The hype isn't justified?!? It's worth it?! Please let me know if this things going to leave me stranded 100miles from home in Death Valley...........which is where I like to take long weekend rides. I'm not a speed freak or one to break the sound barrier, rather I'm one to enjoy the scenery. The 650X is the most refined, probably the best of this lot but it's just a wee bit lacking in the heart racing dept. What would you guys recommend?? The goal is to off-set my 1200GS with a light weight trail bike, add a big gas tank and soft bags and do more technical sections that I wouldn't take the Rhino on.
