    If it's good on track I can put up with a few uncomfortable laps when I'm 'on it'......
    With different rear sets and maybe elongating the seat area I can make it fit ....

    Sounds like you're trying to convince yourself the Priller is the right choice even though its a bit compromised? That's the upside of the Sthou it does everything without the need to compromise, but it's also the thing that maybe means it has a little less soul. Whereas, the GSXR at least for me seems to have the blend just about right..

    Yeah wouldnt go for a RSV4, Swear they arn't even that fast on track? Surely the Gixxer or R1m is a much better choice?

    Aprilia

    The fastest lap time onboard an Aprilia in British SSTK around Cadwell Park this season was a 1:29.460 set by Luke Hedger. He was the only rider to use an Aprilia this season and that time is phenomenally fast and easily comparable to the best times set by BMW, Kawasaki and Suzuki riders. They are very quick bikes on track but the majority of teams in Superstock prefer BMW and Kawasaki machinery as they are cheaper to run, maintain and set up straight out of the crate.

    yes my point was they are not slow no slower than any other 1000cc its down to the rider, put marquez on an rsv4 a bet he would win the championship, there all about 200bhp, in fact my last bmw had 180 so not quick compared to the oposition,

    Aprilia

    Very true although having owned an Aprilia in the past I would never want to again. They are absolutely excellent bikes but the Aprilia customer service experience I had left a lot to be desired. I'm sure parts availability and level of service has improved significantly over the years but I would personally never buy one again.
