I bought my new Factory Pegaso in June 2007. Looks like everyone has the same problem. Fluffy jerky underfuelled low rev performance, NO TORQUE !!!
Spent a fortune on Akrapovic pipes and a remap which improved the thing but low down torque is still very poor for a 660 single. Am I supposed to spend more on a Powercommander to make this bike go like it should have done as standard? I've Emailed Aprilia and am awaiting a reply to see if it can be remapped to squirt more fuel in at low revs. The fuelling feels like its being strangled. Otherwise a great bike

Hello Keith, you haven't sold it and bought a Harley yet then?
I'm the person who contacted you when you had your bike on Ebay!
You sent me pictures including one of you with a walrus....
Welcome to the forum!

PS I've got my centrally heated Peg now!

You should have started with the PC3, it all starts and end in the ECU
there is nothing wrong with the rest of the parts.

I agree totally. The PCIII transformed my bike - it now has tons of grunt.

You'll be waiting a while for a coherent answer from Aprilia. As posted elsewhere, one member just took his 2007 Peg to DynoJet UK to get it mapped for the PCIII. I suppose any time now, DynoJet will post the map on their site. It wouldn't hurt to call their UK office (not US - they are dense as mud, never heard of a Strada when I called 3 months ago) to tell remind them that other customers are waiting for the map. :worship:

Hi Jane, thanks for posting my details last November, decided to keep the bike cos I love it. Just needs more grunt at low revs so looks like I'm heading for Dynojet. Have fun on your new glowing Peg

Thanks everyone for the PC3 recommendation. Ive seen a performance improvement comparison graph for PC's and it appeared to show the improvement starts midway up the rev range. Is that the case or is the
1-3000 RPM range significantly improved. Our friend in N/Z uses the word GRUNT - thats what I'm looking for! People mention the airbox mod and Co2 adjustments also- comments appreciated. I'm old enough to remember the Yam XT500 lifting the wheel in 1st 2nd and 3rd under acceleration, ok the Pegs got top end unlike the XT, can I have it all. Dont say buy a Buell !
