Here is another RSV Nera in Southern California! Located in Los Angeles, California is a 2004 Aprilia RSV 1000 Mille R Nera Edition #21 of 200. No real information about the bike or it’s condition is given other than the production number. A month ago, we actually saw Nera #22 on eBay which had a Buy-It-Now price of $25,000 but, was only bid up to $13,750–It can be seen here. This example, #21, looks to be at a dealer and has an asking price of $19,000; However, we can’t pass judgment without more information from the seller.
The Nera was a bike from the Dream Series, I believe the only one so far, and was based on the Factory but featured carbon, titanium, and magnesium pieces with all fairings, even the tank, coming in carbon fiber. The engine features titanium bolts with magnesium valve and clutch covers, new molybdenum disulphide coated pistons and a stainless steel oil tank. The suspension is top of the line Ohlins units which are fully adjustable. The wheels are forged magnesium with titanium nuts and bolts.
This is a very special bike which still isn’t cheap but, should you go broke, you can always take some bits to the scraper to pay for some tires. See this bike on Craigslist here.
