    Truly amazing masterpiece. Love the trellis frame style combined with RS swingarm. And a monster powerplant to boot. This thing must be a rocket. Congrats my friend, job well done.

    thank you men !!

    in fact, i test the 997rs for the first time last 14 july , after 2 years of build..
    i can't give an serious opinion for the moment.
    i have to perfect the fork and rear schock to the less weight bike.
    i have to get longer the transmission . the engine is so nervous , with the same transmission of my old rsv 99.

    (body of 250rs aprilia and exhaust top)

    the engine is stock , just big big airbox (+ 15 liter ) , powershift GMP and exhaust home made with ninja grid.
    i dont search more power , .... just a good frame , handle...light...

    the idea of this bike , is to assemble your own moto with a frame kit and aprilia parts.. swing arm of RSV/SL/Futura... engine /fuel pump/fork...etc

    you can see more picture on my website

    in france , there is few prototype , but so spectacular..

    the exhaust is locating under the engine , on the center of the bike.
    finaly , there is less weight on the rear than an stock RSV.
