the exhaust looks like a pw50 haha its tiny.

if you really look at it from the back you can tell there's alot more muffler there... there's like this deal that goes up, then it goes to that little pipe, then out the back into those weird final things.

the aprillia's are a V-twin (two 225cc cylinders), not a big single, so each header pipe is more akin to a 250F header in size then a typical 450 header, as fro the muffler, i don't know about in the states, but here in aus the aprillia's come with an arrow's slip on in the spares kit.

That exhaust system is sweet! I lile it much better than those huge cannons on the back of most 450's. The bike is gorgeous too except for the weird front fender.

Can anyone tell me what the black thing is on the front fender?

I noticed that feature as well and I really can't grasp the engineering logic behind that one. Hmmm...:busted:

The "black thingie" looks like one heck of a fender brace. Kinda' like a KTM but a whole lot more.

And unless they have some sort of "new" silencer technology those tiny cans are going to make for one incredibly loud bike..............

Plenty sexy though!

they have a few at our local shop , i really want a 550 but im not sure . im pretty sure it would be heavier then my wr450 and probably not as tough .

it would be interesting though , i have a really good aprilia dealer right here so i like to buy there stuff . then again there also a husky dealer .

what barnd suspension does aprilia use? it doesnt look like it says it on the bike itself. Im guessing its something high end like marzzochi or ohlins.

the silencer is behind the shock they are only the end pipes
