Its a good bike but there are more intellegent ways to spend money........with the other more popular brands there is no reason to buy a bike that you will be married to for a long time and the divorce will cost you a packet

I rode one in dirt. To be honest I was so busy twisting the throttle and figuring out where to point it that I could hardly notice anything else about the bike!

Seriously though the V twin is very fast. I've been on the old gen Husaberg 550, and comparing that to the Aprilia I would say it felt like the Husaberg had more torque down low and was a bike you could happily ride on trails and singletrack all day.

The Aprilia was less linear(I thought) and more violent higher in the RPM range. The forks were worse on the Aprilia than on the Husaberg I felt. The bike would take some time to get used to no doubt. Had a chance to jump on a paved mountain rode and opened it up, and looked down at 90mph in a short distance. WOW. Thought my visor was gonna break.
