    2010-2014 rsv4

    Heyyo

    Anyone got any experience with these bikes? Really want one in the new year after a bit of saving...Maybe will be 2022 but am in love the look and sound. Just hoping for comparisons from any previous owners compared to 2015 s1k?

    Cheers

    Glad you're back on your feet and looking to the future. FWIW I think the Ape would be a great idea but do look and ask on the TAF FB Page https://www.facebook.com/TheApriliaFactory/ wrt to common issues, parts availability and costs.

    I’ve test rode the factory Tuono earlier this year and it’s a very nice bike. Excellent value for money at the moment and the sound track is amazing. If the deal had been right on the day I might have bought it.

    Hi Felix ! Sold my '15 S1k in Jan '18 and bought an RSV4 rf as interim step for the gen 4BM. I'm 6'2" and to be honest it's not good for my size lol. Running it in (Jan/Feb) was a right ball ache, sooooo small for road riding,and never had such wide chicken strips due to the weather lol. However, come the good weather, at Portimao I was 2secs quicker than on my beemer. It's never been as comfortable for me although it ticks all the boxes on track. It's a different animal and, yes, awesome soundtrack, even have my 'spanish ' can made lol, Am looking to change back to the BM (because of my length ) just need the right deal.
    Speed doesnt kill, its how fast you stop.......
