    RSV4 Factory #2 added to the stable

    I was fortunate enough to be the high bidder on a brand new 2012 RSV4 Factory. This one will be converted into a track bike for the wifey. She was spending more and more time riding mine at track days, so I took a chance on the auction and won. We should be taking delivery on it in the next 2-3 weeks. We're both excited.

    Not sure if it is an amazing deal or just about market price, but it is all stock with 100 miles on it and I won the auction at $13.9k.

    Wow...that's nuts! I didn't know they had any Factorys up for auction, or I may have entertained grabbing one. I work a mile or so from there, and sometimes take a walk over during lunch. Probably a good thing for my marriage that I didn't.

    Congrats!

    Nice work Martin - perhaps now we'll see a lot more of both you & Irene at the track next season!

    I'm kinda looking around for a 2012 for track use, now that I've tried one on the track. I really don't need another track bike, but you know how it goes... congrats!

    That's right. My 2010 was John Beldock's race bike, so this is the second RSV4 I've purchased from them.

    I got the twin, 2012 RSV4 Factory,,,,originally I was watching the auction also, so I called the dealer to try to get the info on the bike so I could do my home work (which included having Micah and Steve at AF1 check with Aprilia on the vin, warranty claims and recall status), and I asked about the deposit deal,,,he informed me that he also had another bike, (the one I got).you ended up with the one from the auction and I made an offer on the other and it was accepted, so I got one too!!
    best of luck!!
