Featured Listing: 2003 Aprilia RSV Mille R Haga Replica

Update 12.6.2019: Todd has just renewed this Featured Listing for his Mille R Haga Rep. Thank you for supporting the site and good luck to buyers and seller! -dc

It’s ironic to find such a nice, clean and unmolested replica racer street bike in this 2003 Aprilia RSV Mille R when the inspirational rider for the bike itself was nicknamed “win it or bin it.” Noriyuki Haga – a long-standing staple of World Superbike and occasional 500cc GP racer – spent one season as the sole rider for Aprilia during the 2002 WSBK season. The end result was 4th place in the championship and this Play Station livery, limited edition replica.

Featured Listing: 2003 Aprilia RSV Mille R Haga Replica!

Under the wild graphics and matte paint, the Haga replica is predominantly a standard Mille R. That means about 140 ponies ready to rocket you down the straightaway of your choice. At the end of the straight clamp down on the Brembo binders and enjoy the Ohlins suspension as the bike takes a set and carves its way to the apex. At corner exit dig deep into the power reserves of the 998cc 60 degree twin and do it all over again to the soundtrack booming from those wonderful Akrapovic cans. Parked at your favorite hangout, the Haga replica draws a crowd with cool livery, electric blue anodized upper clamp and Haga’s own signature. The numbered limited edition nomenclature is no joke; only 300 examples of the Haga replica were created, with only 60 imported into the United States.

From the seller:
2003 MINT RSV 1000R Mille Haga Replica (#118) 6959 miles – Dallas TX

I purchased this bike in 2003 from a gentleman in Frisco TX with 2300 original miles on it. He was selling it simply because he needed to get out from under the payments. I’ve owned it since then and it’s lived its entire pampered life in a heated and air-conditioned garage. Its near mint condition and nothing has been modified, not the engine, the suspension or the ECU. It’s never been laid down or wreaked and never been on a track. Its now got 6959 total miles.

Just sits in my garage and it fires right up and sounds great. Please call or text me if you want a near perfect Mille R Haga Replica.

Asking Price: $8,750

More from the seller:
INSTALLED UPGRADES:
Sato Racing black adjustable rear sets, carbon fiber rear tail light housing, Sargent Super Cell Atomic Foam seat, Powerlet battery charging outlet (BMW style) for ease of maintaining the battery without having to remove the seat every time, carbon fiber side screens (both left and right), carbon fiber rear fender, carbon fiber chain guard, gold racing chain, new tires (front and rear).

UNINSTALLED UPGRADE PARTS INCLUDED:
Also, I am including some items I’ve purchased but not had time to install: RC2 Racing clutch and brake levers, Rhino Moto weighted black slider bar ends, Rizoma aluminum and rubber grips, 90-degree aluminum air stems, new factory replacement front head light assembly complete with bulbs that are already factory mounted, Aprilia bike cover included too.

More from the seller:
Repairs:
Back seven years ago I had to have the local Aprilia Dealer (RPM Cycles) replace the gas tank. It had started leaking a little bit and RPM Cycle said that the gasoline here in the USA is a little more corrosive to the Italian plastic (from what it was designed to handle) and it had warped around the fuel pump mounting area. The fuel tank was certainly not a cheap repair and it had to be ordered from Italy. I’ve also had the front rotor floater buttons replaced.

Nicks and Blemishes:
The left Akrapovic exhaust can decal is missing some ink, the upper front fairing white decal has two stone nicks in it, the front plastic headlight assembly has two cracks in it (one half inch the other quarter inch), the left rear swingarm has a scratch on it from me trying to get the bike up on a rear stand by myself.

Maintenance:
My local Aprilia dealer (RPM Cycle in Carrolton TX) has maintained the bike for as long as I have owned it. Oil changes, tuning the carburetors, tune ups, etc.

The Aprilia Mille R is an outstanding motorcycle. The one-year Haga replicas takes all of that capability and up-levels it with a graphics package and tribute worthy of its DNA. This is a collector motorcycle that deserves to be ridden; this is no fragile, cobbled together one-off but a reliable and factory supported rocket ship. It is rare in the way that makes ownership fun – it is different in the ways that matter, but completely stock and maintainable in the manner of a mass produced motorcycle. And at an asking price of $8,750 – which is right on the money of the model – this is a rare machine that won’t break the bank. Check out all of the pics and then give Todd a shout. He’s waiting for your call. Good Luck!!

For Offroad Use Only: 2001 Aprilia RS250 Cup for Sale

By 2001, the entire quarter-liter sportbike class was basically dead, leaving the Aprilia RS250 Cup a bit of an orphan. Yamaha TZR250 production ended in 1995, Honda’s NSR250R in 1996, and the Suzuki RGV250Γ held out until 1998. But I guess Aprilia still had some of the older 90° RGV250 engines lying around, so they kept churning out bikes for a few more years. The bigger issue was their viability as road bikes: one of the biggest reasons for the classes’ demise was the increasingly stringent emissions regulations that favored cleaner-burning four-stroke engines, instead of the light weight, but very dirty two-strokes that powered these bikes. They don’t call them “smokers” for nothing…

So the 249cc powerplant was from Suzuki, with a few Aprilia-branded bits to make the claim that they’d tuned it extensively somewhat believable. The frame was an aluminum twin-spar unit like the donor bike, but what a frame: unlike the industrial units seen on the Gamma and NSR, Aprilia’s was gorgeously sculptural, as was the swingarm. Brakes were more than up to the task, since the very same triple-Brembo setup was used on much heavier bikes like the Ducati 916 and Moto Guzzi Sport 1100…

By 2001, new two-strokes weren’t legal for road use in many markets, including the US. The RS250 Cup got around this by not bothering to be a road bike. It was intended for a single-make racing series, although an awful lot of them turn up here on eBay with very few miles, suggesting folks bought them to collect and not to race. It’s not too difficult to source bits from the road-legal version if you’re looking to convert one, although that doesn’t appear to have been done in this case.

From the original eBay listing: 2001 Aprilia RS250 Cup for Sale

This is an Aprilia RS250 imported into the US for the Aprilia Cup club road racing series. It was sold as a race bike only so bill of sale only. This example was never raced and spent most of its life in a private motorcycle collection. The original owner added lighting, turn signals, horn, and other equipment typically found on a street bike. I have only ridden it 6 or 8 times in the years I have owned it but I recently went over it from nose to tail and made sure everything is in good working order. Other than the added street equipment the bike is as originally delivered by Aprilia. Having owned and road raced one of these for many years I am very familiar with them and this motor is quiet and tight. Factory shop manual is included with the bike.  Also includes a new Shorai lithium/iron battery.

The Aprilia RS250 Cup was originally a track-only machine, although the seller indicates that it’s been made nominally road-legal and that it has managed to accumulate 3,000k miles so far, and bidding is up to just $5,250 with a few days left on the auction. The projector-beam headlight isn’t stock, but actually works pretty well, although I’d replace those red-anodized fasteners with black as soon as I got the bike home. Obviously, any potential buyers should be wary if they intend to register this machine for road use, unless they just plan on converting it back to track-only configuration.

Gold cup: 2007 Aprilia RSV Mille R Bol d’Or

If you’re into Italian superbikes with big, torquey twins, gorgeous styling, impeccable kit and a definite air of exclusivity, now is a phenomenal time to cast your eyes toward early-mid aughts Aprilia RSV Milles. Relative to the other Italian marque famed for its muscular twins, Aprilias can be had for a song, and since they sported Rotax mills until fairly recently, they’re as reliable as death and taxes.

2007 Aprilia RSV Mille R Bol d’Or for sale on eBay

Also like their Bolognese rivals, Aprilia wasn’t afraid of the odd special edition, and this 2007 Aprilia RSV Mille R Bol d’Or is a perfect example of that. One of 200 examples built between 2007 and 2008, it is simply a Mille R with a special paintjob that apes the bikes Aprilia ran in the superstock class at the 2006 Bol D’or 24 hour race. Underneath that odd-but-cool red, green, white and purple livery lurks a 143-horsepower beast held up on either end with Ohlins springy bits. It also rocks forged wheels, a carbon fiber fender and — sorry, friends — a solo tail section.

From the eBay listing:

I am liquidating my collection, please check out my other listings I will be posting

This is my Near Mint RSVR1000, Super Low Mileage

Bike was leaned over onto grass (right side), please see photo’s of miner blemishes / decals, Otherwise Perfect.

(I think with $500 of touch up the bike can be mint)

Only upgrade is Akropovic titanium slip on’s ($1,500), I still have the OEM cans

Bike rides amazing.

NO RESERVE AUCTION

Any questions?

Thanks

As the seller states, aside from some blemishes on one side, it is in beautiful condition. It has also been ridden sparingly, with just under 3,000 miles to show. An Akrapovic exhaust has been added to help it stand out from any others you might see — as if that would ever happen. Speaking of rarity, this is the second such bike we’ve run across in the last two weeks, which means if you missed out on the last one, all hope is not lost.

V-Twins for EVERYONE: 2001 Aprilia RSV Mille R for Sale

Everything was coming up twins in the early 2000s. Ducati’s continued success on track and in showrooms inspired other manufacturers to throw their hats into the ring: Honda and Suzuki decided that, “if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em” and built v-twin superbikes to compete against the 998. Obviously that’s oversimplifying things a bit, since Honda was apparently fed up with bias towards the Bolognese v-twins in WSBK and wanted to make a point by beating Ducati at their own game, which isn’t exactly the same thing. For Aprilia though, it just made sense to use a v-twin for their first superbike, and they managed to knock it out of the park with the RSV Mille R.

The bike was well-reviewed, had some success in World Superbike, and made for a real Italian alternative to Ducati, with wildly different looks but the same kind of v-twin grunt matched with better reliability. With their brand-new bike, Aprilia opted to avoid the kinds of mechanical nightmares experienced by Bimota, outsourcing powertrain development to Rotax in Austria. The resulting twin’s unusual 60° configuration meant a more compact design that allowed a longer swingarm for increased traction in a shorter wheelbase than is usual for a v-twin. Ergonomics and handling were closer to the Japanese inline fours than Ducati’s famously uncomfortable machines, and the R model seen here features plenty of go-fast goodies, including lightweight carbon bits, Öhlins suspension, an Öhlins steering damper, and forged aluminum wheels. The vacuum actuated “Pneumatic Power Clutch” mimicked the function of a slipper clutch to keep the rear wheel from skipping across the pavement during downshifts.

The frame and swingarm of the RSV Mille are utterly gorgeous, although they do get overshadowed by the rest of the package. The flat-black paint looks brutally functional and follows Aprilia’s habit of making unusual stylistic choices, as with the silver foil lettering on the RS250 or the purple and red Reggiani graphics. Small wings on the fairing predate the aero trend seen in WSBK and MotoGP, although the mesh vents on the flanks never really caught on… The “Mickey Mouse” headlamp may be a questionable choice, but should provide good illumination for evening rides and a Mille won’t ever be mistaken for anything else.

I hate to harp on the looks when I post these, because I really do like them. They’re a bit like the old Alfa Romeo Milano: not pretty by any means, but very striking. They’re especially appealing in flat, stealth-fighter black with red and white graphics seen here. The huge silencer looks very 2001, but somehow less dorky than the ones you find on Japanese bikes of the period. Maybe it’s the twin outlets? I’m sure it works fine, unless you want more noise. Because who doesn’t want more noise from their Italian sportbike?

From the original eBay listing: 2001 Aprilia RSV Mille R for Sale

For sale a 2001 Aprilia RSV Mille R with very low mileage and in almost new condition. I purchased the bike from the original and it was in a garage in the past 8 years. I changed all the fluids and the fuel pump. The bike runs and drives like a new bike. The bike has two small dent/scratches on the fuel tank (see attached picture).

With just 1,197 miles, this thing is tragically unused: the looks may be an acquired taste, but there’s no denying these RSVs are great to ride and very reliable, especially considering their Latin origins. If you’re looking for Italian v-twin music on a limited budget and don’t have time for mechanical drama, grab this one and ride it!

Truth or Dare – 2008 Aprilia RSV1000R Bol D’Or

While Aprilia has a long successful history racing their smaller machines, they took their liter twin endurance racing in 2006, learned a lot and did well to boot.  The Bol D’Or commemorative was a great limited edition paint scheme on the already nicely spec’d RSV1000R, and this example is outstanding with low miles.

2008 Aprilia RSV1000R Bol D’Or for sale on eBay

Since its debut in 1998, the RSV has used the dry-sumped V-twin from Rotax, in magnesium cases.  The gear-chain combo driving double overhead cams gives a distinctive sound on its way to 143 hp and 79 ft.-lbs. torque.  An Öhlins forks and steering damper are found at the front of the twin-spar alloy frame, and a Sachs monoshock takes care of the symmetrical banana swingarm.  Engine vacuum on over-run actuates the factory slipper clutch, and monoblock Brembo brakes claim the first road-going radial master cylinder.  The cockpit reviewed as comfortable even in the fairing’s drag-reducing design.

This RSV has covered under 7,000 miles over its eleven years, and appears original and excellent.  The tires look fresh and the owner advises a recent oil change in the eBay auction – nice of the owner to include the stands.

Bike is in great condition.  The look of this bike will definitely get you some attention.  Never been down and always kept in a garage with a cover.  Well maintained, serviced regularly with oil change in the last past 2 months.  It has two little marks in the paint.  One of the pictures has it shown.  Comes with cover and Pit Bull Lifts.

The Rotax powered Aprilia can be a good candidate for purchase in the middle-aged-but-barely-used category, since the valve adjustment interval is 12,500 miles and the all-metal cam drive ages gracefully.  This one doesn’t appear to have been near a racetrack, but RSV’s are set up for it, with no hanging signal lights, once the mirrors are removed all you need is some tape.  Or though it might be easier said than done, vow to ride it within limits on the street, and keep it extra nice.

Reggiani Replica: 1996 Aprilia RS250 for Sale

I’m not always a fan of race-replica paint schemes: they’re obviously designed to be as eye-catching as possible, so they’re usually not very subtle… But the Loris Reggiani Replica Aprilia RS250 keeps thing pretty simple, with a distinctive scheme that flatters the bike’s simple good looks. It’s so understated that, for the longest time, I didn’t realize it was a race-replica scheme at all! Regianni rode Aprilias between 1985 and 1995 in the 250cc and 500cc classes, although the bored-out 380 v-twin wasn’t entirely successful against bigger machines.

Introduced in 1995, the Aprilia was a late-entry into the quarter-liter sportbike class, and one of few officially available outside Japan, since the NSR, TZR, RGV, and KR were sold only as grey or “parallel import” machines in many markets. Instead of trying to build a brand-new engine to compete in the hotly-contested class, Aprilia simply purchased complete Suzuki’s proven RGV250Γ “Gamma” two-stroke v-twins and installed them in their own chassis, with good suspension and possibly excessive braking ability: the RS250 is equipped with the same triple Brembo setup considered to be highly effective on much heavier bikes like the Ducati 916 and the hulking Moto Guzzi Sport 1100i…

Aprilia claimed to have tuned Suzuki’s 249cc engine and the official horsepower would suggest some serious Italian magic has been applied to raise the horsepower to the RS250’s claimed 70hp, but it’s all sleight of hand: the Japanese manufacturers generally quoted an output of 45hp to meet Japanese market regulations. In reality, they were easily capable of more, and the RS250’s Suzuki v-twin wasn’t very different than the RGV250’s powerplant and those Italian horses are probably optimistic, even when measured at the crank.

But that actually works to a prospective buyer’s advantage: parts to tune an RS250 or keep one running shouldn’t be any more difficult to obtain than they would be for an RGV and, while they weren’t common here in the USA, they were very popular overseas. Which is to say: make sure you’ve got some good translation software installed on your computer and be prepared for things to ship from Japan or Europe.

A 1998 restyle of the RS250 kept the same general character, but updated the nose and tail with a more pronounced teardrop taper and introduced a new, more “modern” dash. Function of the new gauges was pretty cutting-edge and included a lap-timer, although the style dated quickly. Personally, I much prefer the earlier style of bodywork and gauges seen here. The photos of this example aren’t of the best quality: resolution is low and the lighting is pretty terrible. But from the description, it sounds like it’s worth a look, and probably a message to the seller to request some better pictures!

From the original eBay listing: 1995 Aprilia RS250 Loris Reggiani Replica for Sale

Up for sale is a 1995 (titled as a 1996) Aprilia RS 250 Loris Reggiani Replica with only 5613 miles on it.  It is in very good condition for it’s age with only some small scratches on it but in great condition for a 20+ year motorcycle. All switches and controls work. Of all the RS 250 models the Reggiani Replica is one of the more collectible ones. The bike comes with a clear Florida title.  The only additions to it are a Battery Tender lead, Ohlins Steering Damper, and a smoked windscreen

The following services have been done to the bike:

  • New Battery
  • New Spark Plugs
  • New Black Stainless Steel front and rear brake lines
  • New rear brake pads
  • New air cleaner
  • New Pro-grips
  • New chain guide
  • Transmission fluid replaced
  • Coolant replaced
  • Injector Oil topped off
  • Carbs cleaned

Also included in the sale of this bike is a box of take-off spare parts from a customers RS 250 that he parted out. Basically $1000.00 in extra parts that you can either use as back-up spares or sale.

  • RH Switch gear
  • Grips
  • Flywheel
  • Voltage Regulator
  • Clutch Assembly
  • CDI Box
  • Oil Pump
  • Rear Brake master cylinder (NEW)

I am also including an Aprilia Factory service manual with the bike along with (2) keys.  I don’t have the owners manual.  The only reason I am selling the bike is the riding position is too extreme for me.  The shift pattern is also a race set-up with 1 up and 5 down.  It can also be switched back to the normal 1 down and 5 up if you need to have it that way.

Payment by cashiers check or cash. Check has to clear before bike can be picked up.  For sale locally so I reserve the right to end the auction early.

This Aprilia RS250 has just 5,613 miles on it, and comes with a nice stash of extras you can keep or resell to recoup some of the very reasonable $9,995 asking price. The unfortunate thing about all of these little strokers is that they’re such fun to thrash, but are rapidly increasing in value where it makes less sense to use them that way, which is a real shame.

Featured Listing: 2003 Aprilia RSV Mille R

Thanks to a successful shopping trip on RSBFS, our buddy Marty has to let go of this beautiful 2003 Aprilia RSV Mille R. I think given his druthers, he’d hang on to both early-aughts Aprilias, but life is full of tough choices. The decision to let go of the big Mille must have been especially tough given that this one is a well-ridden but well-maintained example of Ohlins-sporting R model with a factory titanium exhaust.

In addition to the normal Mille’s 1,000 cc, 115-horsepower v-twin, the Mille R had a lighter, shortened subframe, OZ Racing forged wheels, a carbon fiber front fender and the aforementioned Ohlins suspension. The results, predictably, were ludicrous speed backed up by prodigious grip and micron-perfect handling. Marty bought his bike three years ago from an Air Force aircraft mechanic, who was predictably fastidious about its care. As the pictures show, its condition belies its 17,000 miles.

With a recent and thorough going-over, this beast is ready to make someone’s fall riding season perfect.

From the seller:

Up for sale here is a classic version of pure Italian rolling artwork. A beautiful 2003 Aprilia RSV Mille R. Approx 17500 miles on the 60 degree V twin but you would never guess it as it has been extremely well cared for. I purchased the bike a few years ago after much research and a two year hunt with the intent of putting it on the track. And even though RoadCarver mag called it” one of the very best production bikes you can ride on a track” , I just could not bring myself to thrash it around NJMP. It had survived it such a state that it was meant to be enjoyed in other ways. The bike is a joy to ride, does not stretch you out in the riding position, and turns heads everywhere you go. And did I mention the sound. I ride mostly on the track and this is up for sale to pay for my addiction and recent new addition to my collection.
This was an almost 20000$ bike in 03 and the list of state of the art racing components Aprilia had to offer reads well.
A few highlights
60 degree Rotax Bulletproff V twin
Alloy twin spar frame
43 mm Ohlins inverted tele. Forks
Ohlins monoshock and steering damper
Forged Aluminum OZ racing wheels
Close ratio 6 speed gearbox
Twin 320 fronts with Brembo 4 piston radial calipers
Carbon fiber everywhere
Bike has been garage kept and routinely gets frequent neighborhood rides all year long. Starts right up and pulls like a freight train.
New battery earlier this year. Bike was sorted by Markbilt racebikes in NJ when I got it. Ohlins serviced, brake lines flushed and refreshed, clutch adjusted, new fuel pump.
Has factory Aprilia racing exhaust(stock included in sale), and a carbon fiber Sargent seat. Also have a complete set of factory decals.
Clear title.

$8500.
Contact Marty at 267-530-2818.

Do your research. This is a up and coming collectors item. Great to ride. Even better to stare at. And did I mention that sound! Thanks for looking.

At $8,500, it’s hard to go wrong with such a well-maintained and beautiful machine. It may not say Ducati on the side, but it’ll run with the Bolognese bruisers all day, and just try getting a special-edition Duc for that.

Original Hooligan: 2005 Aprilia Tuono Factory for Sale

“Necessity is the mother of invention” or so the saying goes. You’re out riding your brand-new GSX-R750 in the canyons, hit a patch of oil, and low-side into a ditch. You limp home and realize what new bodywork will cost, but no worries: you just rip it off, and fit a set of motocross bars to help you do sick wheelies! The irony of the modern supernaked is that the trend started with owners actually improving the power-to-weight ratio of their sportbikes, but when the factories got involved, they almost always detuned their bikes to make the performance more “road-oriented,” and fitted lower-spec brakes and suspension to keep costs down. The Japanese usually went even further, using last-generation engines and building new, heavier frames to house them. But not Aprilia: their Tuono Factory was just an RSV Mille with the fairings removed and a set of handlebars added. Just like dad used to make…

All the good stuff from the Mille is still there: the sculptural aluminum beam frame is more visible in this application, a big plus in my book. Lightweight wheels and quality suspension. The compact, powerful, and reliable 60° Rotax v-twin… the weird 90s Aprilia styling, here with added weirdness. Given the already questionable styling of the RSV Mille, the results were less than cohesive, a jumble of angles, odd shapes, futuristic details, and random mesh vents. Luckily, it somehow swings around past “ugly” on the dial and back towards “cool” as a result of all the quality kit on display. The first-generation Tuono is by no means a pretty bike, but it looks sinister and brutal, dangerous to the rider and to anyone nearby. Like a chainsaw with a rusty knife blade for a handle…

The 60° Tuono unit had balance shafts to offset the vibrations caused by the narrower angle between the cylinders. Like the Ducati superbikes of the era, it displaced 998cc, had four valves per cylinder, and liquid cooling. Unlike the Ducati, the twin featured a “Pneumatic Power Clutch” or PPC that took the place of a more conventional slipper clutch. On the overrun, engine vacuum is used to disengage the clutch and prevent the rear wheel from locking during downshifts. Fully-adjustable Öhlins suspension, including a steering damper not found on the Mille, Brembo radial calipers, and lightweight forged wheels rounded out the very trick package.

The Factory produced a claimed 127hp, up a few from the less carbon-adorned and more basic Racing version. Which is a bit ironic, don’t you think? You might be under the impression that all v-twin sportbikes share a similar character, but large power-pulses aside, they can have vastly different feel. The Aprilia is supposed to rev harder but be a bit more “agricultural” than the Ducati, perhaps owing to the additional shafts spinning in the crank cases. Handling was excellent for both the Tuono and the Mille on which it was based, with a much more “Japanese” feel to the handling, compared to the slow-steering but hugely stable Ducatis.

From the original eBay listing: 2005 Aprilia Tuono Factory for Sale

This is a rare opportunity to buy a very nice Gen 1 Tuono Factory model. 

They don’t come up for sale very often so you will want to take advantage of this opportunity to snag a very clean example!

These were built with all the right parts straight from the factory, Ohlins front & rear, Brembo (radial front) brakes, lightweight OZ wheels, Titanium pipe, carbon fiber bodywork, great V twin torque 🙂

This example has been upgraded for comfort, performance & aesthetics with the following…

  • Sargent seat, 
  • Throttlemeister bar ends, 
  • Rizoma clutch & brake reservoirs, 
  • Pazzo adjustable levers, 
  • Zero Gravity & stock wind screens, 
  • Carbon rear cowl on bike with Pillion seat and pegs also included, 
  • Evo air box mod and Chip, 
  • Leo Vince SBK Titanium exhaust with removable silencer insert

I have owned this bike for a number of years and it spends most of its time indoors on a battery tender, but I do take it out for a ride now and then to keep it running right. Only flaw is a scratch on the top of the front fender, see pic.

It’s not absolutely perfect, but it’s obviously been cared for and enjoyed: note the horseshoe-shaped bit surrounding the fuel filler that is likely a tank-bag mount. It has a bit north of 20,000 miles on it, but the Rotax twin is famously unburstable when properly cared for. $6,500 asking price represents a premium over an equivalent RSV, but that’s par for the course these days.
