    Highest mileage?

    How reliable are the Rotax twins that are in the Aprilia bikes? What kind of mileage can we expect to get out of them? Who has the highest on the board here?

    I put 47k on my last bike, so I am hoping this one will make it that far.

    Reliability of the Rotax is the least of your concerns with this machine, (unless you've got one of the ultra rare, V4 models that is )

    These motors can easily give you 60K plus miles, reliably. Just change the oil regularly and have the valves checked atleast somewhere arond the first 20K miles and you should be good to go.
