    Kris shit man I am glad you are ok man! Too bad about the bike bro! I am very happy to hear you are ok though dude!

    Just remember one thing.... when you are at the track, how many downed ducatis do you see?? Everytime I am there most of the Ducs go down (front tuck). Not sure if they have fixed that issue on the 1199 just yet, but might be worth finding out first.

    Dude... seriously glad your ok!

    2012 are in stock.

    The bike is quite repairable but has a small cosmetic blemish on the frame, unfortunately that will write it off as frames cannot be replaced in Australia.

    Would make a good track bike for sure.

    I would buy either a 2007 Yamaha R1 (2nd highest basic-mods power ever on my dyno for a stock based bike) or a 05' R1 LE (the one with Ohlins and marchesini's and such, hard to find, only like 200 imported I think) as a time killer. They are fantastic bikes, crash OK-ish and both have character. 07's have an AMAZING motor with nothing more than an Akro race system, flash, PCIIIusb and careful set up of the stock cams. 152bhp on my dyno on pump fuel, 160+ on race gas, with our dyno, add about 17-18% at this power level to get an equivalent dynojet number. That motor is RBW though. If you like cables opening your butterflies, the 05' LE is top shelf shit too. The 07' is easy to find and $5-7k around here. Perfect time killer bike and I think you might like it.

    I have gotten three texts today asking about rumors of the 2013 RSV4 power. I honestly know nothing more than this. Should Aprilia choose more top end over midrange there is a lot of untapped potential in the last 3000 rpm of the V4 motor as it is now. Beef up a few parts on the valvetrain and I am guessing they could be pretty close to anything else out there and survive making peak power at 13-14k rpm. This is great news for me because I want a used 10' model Factory and they are hiding their value real well right now.

    I always thought the 07 -08 R1's had outstanding power. After riding the v4 i'm not so sure that they handle as well ... but a rider could just throw parts at it and get it to handle with a decent setup.

    I'm surprised - at 178cm/85kg (or so), I find mine more comfortable than my old RSVR. And I find the clutch action much lighter than the V2 also.

    Have you tried rearsets/bar risers?

    i totalled mine today as well , no brakes 250 kph at 200 meter mark at the end of the straight only had the rear brake and the gear box , ended up high siding me and cartwheeling through the gravel

    one could say i am a wee bit sore , fixed the brakes fitted new body work and got out for another 2 sessions after lunch bike looks very very secondhand with gravel rash all over the frame and engine

    didn't you just fix this bike up for the track? and what happened to your brakes?
