    Back at it, on an Aprilia this time...


    After a brief hiatus when I had to sell the Streefighter last June, I'm happily back at it...but this time on an Aprilia. Picked up a 2017 Factory from Seacoast and after about 200 miles this past week, I have to say this bike is everything the reviewers said it is. It's fast as hell and more nimble than my Streetfigher S (had the last of the 1098 models). It felt good to get out and shake a few cobwebs loose. I think this will be a great riding season. Hope to see some of you out there when the weather warms up.

    I have a 2012 and love it, even moreso after enduring a 1098 Sbk for years. Perfect sport bike for eastern MA.

    Nice, and congrats. How does it sound with that pipe?
    Mine is still in storage, once things dry up a bit, I'll get it out.

    Nice storage facility

    The Akra with the db killer out sounds amazing. I liked the Austin Racing and SC-Project pipes, but they were too loud. I did not want any extra attention from cops on the street. The Akra is plenty loud and sounds great. Also came with the Aprilia race ecu.

    Nice, quite a few T owners here... purchased mine a couple weeks back, pick it up on Saturday. Hopefully the weather will hold out as the past two weekends have been all rain. The Akra's nice but I'm thinking of an SC Project Oval, guzzidiag just enabled write to the new ECUs so once we get a race ecu map .bin file available it'll be a free map overwrite saving $800 and full ecu swap.

    First order through AF1 was for a bunch of crash protection (my first ever brand spankin new bike) and some RF decals. Can't wait.

    I've ridden TrackRat's V4 Tuono. Too much power for me

    I'll stick with the Hyper. Congrats on the new ride!

    Congrats on the new ride. I donít have a factory but I do have a 2013. Great bike. Kicking around the idea of upgrading to a new factory.
