    Aprilia USA on Tour: The 2007 Street Bikes

    Aprilia's mobile showroom includes a selection of the following performance
    motorcycles:

    RSV 1000 R Factory and RSV 1000 R. Experience Aprilia's top-of-the-line,
    race-bred V-Twin supersports and discover precisely why the Factory version
    earned the 2006 "Masterbike" award, a prestigious media accolade that
    recognizes the fastest series motorcycle in the world. A category leading
    collection of exotic materials, high-tech components, sophisticated
    technology and chassis refinements distinguish both bikes as uniquely
    Aprilia.

    The Tuono 1000 R Factory and Tuono 1000 R. Aprilia's award-winning naked
    bike blends the soul of a race bike with the reality of riding - even
    go-fast guys demand reliability and superb ergonomics. Whether you're
    curious to sample the magical responsiveness and super technology of the
    Tuono R, or the 139 hp, Ohlins race-suspension sporting Tuono 1000 R
    Factory, you'll never go back to ordinary Twins after flicking the throttle
    of an Aprilia Tuono.

    ETV 1000 Caponord is the perfect mix between functionality and design. This
    "total tourer" can tackle the town, the trail and the interstate, all with a
    passion for delivering a sporty ride. Aprilia's touring Twin packs plenty
    of value on top of excellent performance and ride comfort. Standard
    features range from active safety elements like tubeless spoke rims to a
    multi-function digital and analog instrument panel for the ultimate in
    navigation convenience.


    Aprilia USA on Tour: The 2007 Off-Road Bikes

    Aprilia's off-road V-Twins aren't for novices - but they are the weapon of
    choice for the racer who demands championship-caliber Supermoto and enduro
    competition machines with proven reliability:

    RXV 450/550 is a trail-specific powerhouse that integrates an exceptionally
    tough frame with the superior power and torque of Aprilia's ultra-compact
    V-Twin. Exceptional rigidity, competition-grade components, such as
    category-leading brakes, and ease-of-maintenance all combine to create a
    serious challenge to conventional off-road machines.

    SXV 450/550 is the Supermoto edition, the direct descendent of the Aprilia
    that won the World S2 Supermoto title during its debut season. Tuned for
    the track, the SXV delivers all the right elements to win races - plenty of
    torque for the straightaways, Grand Prix-level brake performance for
    aggressive maneuvering and just the right overall rigidity to keep riders in
    control on both asphalt and dirt.


    Aprilia USA on Tour: The 2007 Scooters

    Ideal for pit row or a hassle-free weekend road trip, Aprilia scooters
    combine a sporting heritage with ease-of-operation and serious technology.
    In addition to the scooters below, the all-new SportCity 250 scooter will
    join the tour mid-season.

    Scarabeo 500 i.e. is an all-new member of the family. Almost 50 pounds
    lighter than its predecessor, this sporty ride is scooter, tourer and urban
    commuter all in one technically advanced package. Featuring large wheels,
    extensive safety features and superior ride comfort, this scooter is the
    true embodiment of Aprilia's "automatic motorcycle" concept.

    SportCity 250 redefines confident commuting, thanks to the scooter's unique
    blend of performance bike inspired attributes. From a strong, electronic
    fuel-injected engine to big triple-disc brakes and large wheels and tires,
    the SportCity is all about giving riders every advantage in heavy traffic or
    on long commutes. Add up to 60 mpg fuel efficiency, generous cargo carrying
    capacity and a host of safety and convenience features, and you have a smart
    choice for today's urban riders.

    SR 50 R is the ultimate pit scooter - or weekend run-about. The SR 50 R's
    aggressive styling is inspired by the Aprilia RSV 1000 R sport bike, making
    it a unique way of expressing your need for speed even when you're just
    zipping to the post office, or pit to pit.

    Woo-hoo. I almost overlooked the NY location.

    I am disappointed, but not surprised, to see that the Scranton, PA dealer is not on the list.

    Excellent news that Colorado Springs will have an Aprilia dealer again. I hope pikes peak motorsports, aka pikes peak harley davidson, does the brand justice. Parli l' Italiano?

    The demo truck should be excellent!
    is it Aug 3-4 or 4-5. Posts above conflict.

    I stopped in today, they are also going to carry MV, Moto Guzzi, and the Korean brand Hoyosung. Kind of interesting. They were enthusiastic about the brands. I'm looking forward to having these brands (esp Aprilia!) in town again.

    Demo truck dates are 27/28 July.

    Hey, Sorry about Renos . The weekend really sucked with all the rain.
    The next time I am in town I am going to try and get some bikes over there do like a mini demo .Maybe this will help make up for the rain out.
