i have not heard/read anything good yet, and the fact that the race bikes can't make it onto the starting grid after few warm up laps without braking down has me looking away from a purchase :confused:

Your post is kind of vague. How are they braking down? Who is riding the steed and which continent?

All in all the SXV and RXV motors have been reliable even in very techincal enduro events with lots of slow tight single track where cooling becomes an issue for all bikes.

Need more data...

Well let's see......

The SXV450 is completely dominating and currently holding all of the top 3 positions in the S1 World Championships and the 550 is in 2nd place in S2.

Sure Darryl Atkins has had a few problems in his Aprilia debut in AMA, but not all of them can be contributed to the reliability of the bike itself.

Atkins came in 6th at the x games...not bad at all between big names like Ward,Pastrana and McGrath.

remember what the 748RS race bikes used to be like when they were 'assembled' by the Ducati Factory, it's kinda like that :(
