Hello all you guys,
reading this forum for some time and this all because I’m looking for a new bike... unfortunately, my sight was stopped on 07 RSV R FACTORY… before this time I’ve never ride V2, my previous bikes was 96’ CBR400RR (the first one), then 99’ Ninja ZX9R, 03’ CBR 954rr, 04’ CBR 1000RR and 05 CBR 1000RR (the last one). I was very happy with the Hondas, but then I saw this awesome thing (I mean RSV  )… I was really wondered when I saw Ohlins forks, dampers and all the good stuff for that price. Also I had some ideas about to get Ducati, but its price not for my wallet. So I really want to get your opinion of what to do… or maybe some feelings of riding V2 after R4 (more powerful bike).
Some pix of my previous rides… hope you’ll enjoy.

Sorry haven’t picture of 1-st cbr400

Hi Lik
I think I can help you here

Buy the RSV, You will not regret it at all.

I went from an 06 CBR1000RR to an 06 RSV Factory R and it was the best days work I ever did.

The Aprilia is just about the best thing I have ever ridden on track and for Grin Factor beats the Honda into the ground.

I still have my Blade and use it regularly but it now for boring stuff like getting to and from work etc.

The Aprilia will only see tracks from here on and that is where it is most at home.

Yeah it has issues, bleedin clutch, bleedin back brake dubious quality electrics to name a few but follow the advice these guys give on here and you will never go back to the jap stuff.

Good Luck.
