So Aprilia are launching a whole new range of bikes based on half of the RSV4 1100 engine. It displaces 660ccs and evokes the 2 stroke 250s of the 1990s to a degree. The paint job is reminiscent of the Reggiani replicas I remember so fondly.
That's where it ends though, as it is very obviously NOT a 250cc stroker. Nor is it that simple a motorcycle-which if it were, I think would attract more riders-this thing has all the electronic do dads of its bigger brothers.
