    I too am very much looking forward the arrival of the SRV850. I personally prefer the early Mana bu think the SRV is going to be a game changer for the USA scooter market where everything bigger just has to be better. Go on YouTube and search "turbo Gilera GP800". Fascinating what the motor can take... Makes one think

    I think Aprilia USA should bring it. BMW's C650 GT will attract some of the Scarabeo 500 GT riders. I rode the big Scarabeo for a number of years and everyone loved the big scoot. BMW's got something interesting for those 'touring' maxi scoot riders.

    I am a little bummed too. If it had a 250cc engine, I bet it would sell good here as an entry level bike, but 125cc's won't cut it on the freeways.

    True, which I know is a big deal for a lot of people. The rs50 doesnt either, but I love that bike. It sucks trying to find a smaller commuter bike in the US.

    An RS4 will be nothing more than a curiosity here in the states. Now a 400...or a stout 250 even, friendly enough for short people and newbs of which I'm not either...Kawasaki has an updated 250 and of course there's the Honda. I can see the SRV doing well. There are a lot of "scoots" down in my neck of the woods.

    First, Aprilia has done only tiny bit to promote the RSV4 in the market here in California. Now, this 125 and with that price? Aprilia, you can keep that over there in Italy!

    I am from the Orange County area and been attending Bike Nights Events here, and doing my best to promote the bike on my area. I have asked around of what they think about the RS4 125? And all have said, 250 kawasaki all day!!

    Aprilia needs to work on promotional marketing if they want to compete with the big boys!! And start here in California (southern california) because it's where most of the exotic bikes are sold. That 125 ain't going to do well if you don't pomote it on TRACK and BIKE NIGHTS. So they can keep that 125 in Italy if my suggestions is crazy! and PM me if you guys wan't me to help

    Here is a video of an Aprilia Rs4 125 with an Austin Racing exhaust system. In the video, you can see the difference in noise levels when the db killer is on and off. This exhaust is basically like straight pipes. The downshifts are very nice and personally I think the Aprilia is the best looking in its class!
