Aprilia recall

Is it really a naked bike? Just barely. But it competes with the rest of the 650 class on price. It's more pricey than budget machines like the 650s from Kawasaki or Suzuki, but it's right in the same market as the higher-end Euro nakeds.

  1. Classic Aprilia!! Con rods, humans have been making those for over a century, only the Italians could screw that up. I would drool over an Aprilia and buy Japanese or German, although bring more wallet has had their own fair share of schadenfreude.
