    Sold! - Aprilia Futura RST-1000 For Sale!

    Sold!

    Hi all. Selling my 01 Futura that I bought last year from a guy who regularly posted here. I've provided the CL link but here's the info. The previous owner really knew how to make these bike's work right and did all of the usual mods and improvements PLUS aftermarket exhaust AND a complete Mille front end.

    Looking for a great bike for the curves in the canyons but also one you could comfortably take your significant other on a multi day ride to Santa Fe, Durango, Yellowstone or elsewhere? Then look no further. This beautiful and well appointed 2001 Aprilia Futura is the bike that pretty much fills the bill. Sport Touring at it's finest! The details.....

    2001 Aprilia Futura
    18,300 miles
    1000cc Rotax V-twin motor (awesome).
    OEM integrated saddlebags
    Complete Mille front end (forks, brakes etc)
    Complete CF aftermarket exhaust system
    Tank bag
    Newish tires
    VERY comfortable
    Extremely reliable
    Lots more.....

    Cycle World magazine rated the Futura as "one of the best used bikes". Here's some info from the review.....
    Basic specs: A 998cc, 60-degree V-Twin pumping out 94 horsepower and 60 ft.-lb. of torque that pushed the fuel-injected, fully faired, 518-pound machine to a 11.48-second/118.08-mph quarter-mile and a top speed of 145 mph.
    Why it won: The angularly styled Futura (which, in its matte black version, does a fair imitation of an F-117 stealth fighter) places its major emphasis on the "sport" half of its sport-touring mission. Its engine, based on that of the RSV Mille repli-racer, was retuned for more midrange, but its aluminum chassis is all its own. Its standout features include a single-sided swingarm, an under-tail exhaust, quick-detach hard saddlebags and the most comfortable seat ever bolted onto any motorcycle that had the word "sport" in its description. On the open highway, the Futura is a pleasant ride, even though its semi-sporty riding position is not quite as long-day comfy as that of some other bikes in the category. But on a twisty backroad, it carves up the curves just about as effectively as its racier sibling.
    From the 2001 Ten Best story: "The Mille-based V-Twin makes competitive power, and its twin-spar aluminum chassis elevates class standards for handling. And the styling...well, love it or leave it, the Italian designers deserve credit for daring to be different."
    The bike needs NOTHING but a new owner/rider. It's ready to go. Feel free to reach out with questions. Thanks for looking.
    $3,295 OBO.
