This thing is incredible. It may have the most uncomfortable seat of any bike I have been on but it does not matter. The bike is a toy and it is wonderful as such.
The power from the little 450 v-twin is amazing. It does not have the off the line torque like my Yamaha but once it gets up beyond 5k it starts pulling harder and harder until around 12,000rpm! The front end does not like staying on the ground.
I have ridden a few motards and a KLR650 and they all started to weave and wiggle somewhere from the 70-85mph range. I was pleasantly surprised the Aprilia was stable at any speed and I've had it up around 110! It only takes 14 seconds to get to 100 ON DIRT, SPINNING THE TIRE!
The brakes... People complain and upgrade but I don't see why. The front has WAY more initial bite to them than any other bike I've ridden and I cannot get them to fade. The rear isn't as grabby as I am used to but works well. There is more than enough front brake to send me over the bars with moderate pressure from one finger.
I love this bike and there isn't another supermoto out there that I would rather have.
