    Sot of agree about the rear end, but it wouldn't be a show stopper.

    The std pipe would have to go tho'.

    Pretty damned good looking IMO.

    Wonder if Mrs Falcopops could get one from Santa?

    A cable clutch doesn't have the feel like a hydraulic does. As the motor gets hot the cable can stretch and need adjustment. Hydraulic never needs adjustment and does break!

    I'm wondering whether my CF wheels would fit with some spacers, as I really like the look of it. Nothing else at the moment does it for me except this v4.....but we've had the v4 Falco for years now, somewhat rare, but nonetheless there!!

    Wonder how size will be for us taller riders?

    Hoh, Hum, another shitty day in paradise!

    Should add, wonder how much they're going to be, and whether I can scrape enough money for one, by selling my Busa, Da Beast, and my balls & kidneys, last born blonde girl????.........

    Comforting to see they've modified the Aprilia sidestand


    ..... less comforting to see that the modification appears to just be a splash of silver paint ......



    Wonder whether you 'merkins will get your traditionally improved version ? .....

    I never had an issue with the cable clutch on my SV, worked fine felt fine... Not really something id worry about.

    You ninny...it's called simplifying...I say keep going...

    I wish my Mille had a cable actuated clutch...

    Every hypersuperbike that tips the scales on the light side has a cable actuated clutch...CBRR, R1, ...
