I just sent payment to the current owner(dealer) for this bad boy:

It will be a track only bike, for me at least, but can be made street legal again. I'll be getting the MSO and it has the stock wiring harness intact. I will not be getting any of the street bodywork, which is fine by me as it would end up in a box or on eBay anyway. Here is its spec list:

2010 Aprilia RSV4 Factory
clean MSO (never been titled)
est. 800 miles on odo
Full Akropovich pipe from Aprilia with the correct map
Sato rear sets (GP shift)
Ballistic 12 cell battery
Magnesium OZ wheels (NERA) w/ Braking rotors
Stock RSV4 Factory wheels w/ stock rotors
Catalyst Composite track day fairings w/ professional paint
Axle and frame sliders

I think I got a pretty good deal on the bike, especially given that it comes with the mags with rotors. I'm torn on whether I will keep those or sell them.

Can't wait to get the thing in my garage, let alone ride it. April can't come soon enough!!!

Martin, Martin, Martin!!!

So, what is Irene getting for her new track toy? Knowing her, I highly doubt that she is going to be at the track sitting around a portable crib while you're out riding...

She's actually very happy on the 749R, so nothing new for her. And we take turns watching the little guy. We're actually looking into purchasing a toy hauler camper so that we can all be very comfortable while at the track.

Sounds like a good plan!

I look forward to seeing you all next season

Looks like they mounted up the rear tire backwards.
Sweet bike, congrats

Good catch! They may have reversed it to get more life out of the tire? Here in SoCal, there is Willow Springs...and Willow is hard on right sides. Its common for people to reverse the tire to balance the wear and get more life......of course this is common more with slicks than DOTs.

Im betting that since the rain grooves dont really come into play on the sunny track days, the owner didnt care.....either than or they really boned up and mounted it wrong to your point lol

I believe the Dunlops can be flipped to get more tire life.
