Obviously you can still buy new in Poland

For some reason only 750 available in UK ???

Looks nice though mines 2011, apart from graphics and lighter wheels not sure what else is new/different ?

When I asked, I was told that there's no problem to order brand new 2015 model. I have to sign order, pay 30% of DD price, and after a week motorcycle would be transfered from Aprilia's main European depot to our Polish dealer shop.

mine is 2012 models, and the clutch is very stiff.. quite a homework when in a traffic, and in my hometown country traffic is everyday food, i have to deal with the heat problem and the clutch stiff problem..

is the newest model still stiff?

It's stiffer than it was at my SV650 (wire not hydraulic), but it's not a problem. For me it's ok.

my 2012 isn't stiff at all. Can pull it in and hold it with two fingers and a shorty lever. Hydraulic should give you more power than a cable.

I was told they stopped 1200 import in 2012 due to the fact they couldn't meet US emissions regulation.

I'd buy that. The exhaust is really open for a stock system. Too bad as this is a great cycle! I've got mine, so I guess other people's loss. :)

Thnx Caffeino, but it's only a one short part of the road. To get there we had to spend lot of time on that bumpy road shown in the beginning of the movie.
To ride on very good roads i have to cross the border and use german road network. I'll try to make a movie from there. :cheers:

That's why I bought mine. If i would have to pay the full price i would rather go for Shiver, or small Dorso. I think, I have luck, and now 1200cc makes my smile bigger every time I start the engine, or twist the throttle. :peace:
