OK - So...Rotax shows the current V990 that is used in our beloved machines

Then, there is a 655 that has the Aprilia stamp on it...what is that used for?

Also, there is a 654 that has a BMW stamp on it...what is that used for?

AND the $1M question...why isn't there a 600ish CC sportbike from Aprilia if rotax already has the motors??? Could you fit one of these in like an rs250 or something?

The 655 is to be found in the Pegaso model I think............

and the bmw motor is in the f650 (basically a pegaso) which was originaly built by aprilia for bmw.

the motor is an ultra reliable lump that makes little power, until you throw a ron wood kit in it then it would be fun.....http://www.rotax.net/ds650f650.htm
