No, not mine but I wish. It's actually EDR Eric Dorn's personal bike. It was there the last OMRRA round and unfortunately he laid it down in a race.

Yeah - that bike is gonna be good. I'm blown away by all the negative comments. People see one unofficial blurred image and write it off already. Hilarious.

I ALMOST regret building my 1299 to race, but by the time that bike is paid off and used up the V4 will have evolved into an even better platform. Same as if I had purchased an 1199 only to then see the 1299 evolve from that. No question the 1299 was worth the wait compared to it's predecessor. V4 will be no different...

That crash cost him half a pinkie! Anyone who likes that Aprilia, just email Eric, he never keeps a bike more than a few months.

Yea, rough deal. I would have been out there battling with him but had a low side in practice that killed my weekend.

I've owned Aprilia's since 2010, two Tuono's, so i am familiar with the V4 motor, even though my Tuono is down about 15Hp on the RSV4R. It is a fabulous engine to ride, extremely linear.

When I decided to upgrade my sport bike from my '07 1098S, my three choices were the Aprilia RSV4 RF, the 1299S and the S1000RR a very distant thrid.

I chose the 1299S, even though it was the most expensive of the three, and am extremely happy with it.

These bikes are so close, that it's splitting hairs to establish a winner.

The Aprilia RF has a tough maintenance schedule if used hard on the track, or at least the 2015 did, which with Aprilia's absolute crappy resale value, made me a little more wary of owning another Aprilia.

These bikes should have been bracketed, in this comparo, to be the finalists.

Every bike has a tough maintenance schedule if used on the track. Aprilia just chooses to publish it. The race kit manuals for every other manufacture aren't that much different if you read the service interval sections. A lot of them are actually measured in hours, not miles.

It would have been nice to see a round robin competition.

Anyone have predictions on who the overall winner will be? Winner from each match up?

I'm gonna go with the Kwai and Suzuki winning their matchups and the Aprilia taking the title. That's just my guess and maybe I'm biased toward the Ape...
