Dream bike announced.

Not buying an Aprilia SuperbikeOur Italian friends have finally announced a bike I’ve been waiting for…the 2013 Aprilia RSV4 Factory APRC Superbike* with ABS brakes. I’m a big fan of ABS for the street (pine needles and wet leaves are not your friend) and also of the absolutely fabulous V4 engine Aprilia has been racing (and winning) in World Superbike. I’ve had my eyes on Aprilia for years, but have been waiting for ABS. My wait is over.

The Aprilia website shows an MSRP of $19,999. Hmm…I’m going to have to find something to sell. Aprilia claims “Available Spring 2013.” I hope they mean in the USA.

*Sorry there is no picture of the new bike. I read the very pointed warning about not reproducing images from the Aprilia website. While I think they should want me to reproduce pictures here, they are very specific. I’ve had issues in the past with a simple thumbnail of a Getty Images photo, which I’ll post about sometime after I calm down. Thus the link.
