Aprilia RSVR Factory description

2005 Aprilia RSVR Factory in the most desirable “Black Lion” colors. Excellent original condition, very well maintained and with new BT06 tires. I bought this bike in August 2015 and have only done 300 miles on it since then. I had not owned a bike for 30 years and really wanted to try a modern V twin. My thinking was to take my wife on the back for rides out and when I got the bike I bought a passenger seat pad for it. Of course being a spots bike it was too uncomfortable for her and so not long after I bought a 1975 Z1 which she loves riding on the back of. I have loved riding the RSVR but the Z1 got me into other older bikes and then I bought a Trident, and then a couple of other bikes. I have become hooked on owning bikes I had in the 1970’s and 80’s and have just bought an RZ350 on eBay, which is being delivered next week. So now with 6 bikes, the RSVR is not getting ridden at all and its time to make some room in the garage. 

 The bike has all the usual features found in the rare Factory edition: Ohlins forks and shock, adjustable Ohlins steering damper, superlight Oz magnesium wheels, and lots of extra carbon fiber (mudguards, side scoops, side panels). Paint is all original and is in excellent condition throughout. The only small flaw being 3 light scratches on the right side fairing (I tried to show them in the pics but they can be barely seen) which was done by the shipping company when they delivered the bike to me. The scratches are only on the decal itself. The decals on the tank have some very small bubbles (common issue) as do the tank protectors – both easily replaced. The bike had been maintained very well before I bought it and had the following work/upgrades done before i bought it: Power Commander PCIII installed Fuel pump filter replaced; Recalled fuel line replaced Map*2 switch Hausa Battery 2014 Evap canister & lines removed Valves checked at 21K Ohlins steering damper serviced 2014 OEM clear signal lenses Clutch slave seal replaced Engine oil and filter changed 500 miles ago Stock gearing 15/40 Puig dark smoke windscreen New DID chain Tail tidy Leo Vince pipes RSV4 footrests, allowing for rear brake master cylinder relocation (this is a good mod since it is very difficult to bleed the rear master cylinder in its stock location on the RSVR) Being a former race mechanic I went through the cycle parts completely when I got the bike and did the following work - all the below parts have less than 300 miles on them: Installed battery tender lead Ferodo sinterXRAC brake pads in front (these cost $200) Brake fluid replaced front/rear with Motul RBF660 Aftermarket levers Engine oil and filter (Motul 5100) Spark plugs OEM air filter Also, the fork oils seals were weeping so I had them replaced by Dan Kyle (Main Ohlins dealer in Seaside, CA) It did have Dunlop Q2 tires when I got it which were a bit old and hard so I recently fitted a set of new Bridgestone BT016 Hypersports (120/70, 190/55) which only have about 10 miles on them. Clean and clear CA title in my name, with registration paid through August. The bike has both factory keys (keys fit all locks) and the toolkit. Additional spare parts included: Factory passenger seat pad (unused) OEM air filter Hiflo oil filter and O ring Oil drain bolt washers 4 Spark plugs This bike is in outstanding condition and very well maintained. All electrics work and it runs and handles beautifully. It has no known faults and needs nothing doing to it. It is priced to sell simply because I need the space and have too many other bikes. The bike is sold as is, without warranty, and is located in Hollister, CA. I can help with loading if you use a shipper, since I work from home. $500 deposit with 24 hours and the remainder within 7 days via cash or bank transfer. Paypal accepted for the balance provided the buyer pays the fees. I uploaded a short walk round video, with start up from cold, on Youtube:

With such a diverse collection of historical, rare and outrageous motorcycles, the Quail is an event we thoroughly enjoyed attending last year.

Rossi's Smart

Wed, 24 Nov 2010 00:00:00 -0800

The best piece of 2011 Rossi merchandise so far has to be this Smart car I spotted last week in the Jerez paddock. Maybe Vale himself will have one as it would easily fit into a corner of his humungous new motor home I posted on here a few weeks ago. I was down there with Taylor for the final round of the Spanish Championship (CEV) and just like BSB there was a great end of season atmosphere in the paddock.

2014 WSBK – Misano Results

Mon, 23 Jun 2014 00:00:00 -0700

Kawasaki‘s Tom Sykes won both races at Misano to stretch his championship lead to 39 points as we pass the halfway mark of the 2014 World Superbike Championship. The reigning champion scored his third double-win round of the season while his teammate Loris Baz added a pair of second-place finishes. David Salom on the Kawasaki’s factory EVO entry was also the top rider in the new sub-class for both races to top off a strong weekend for the Team Green.
