Endurance Pedigree: 2007 Aprilia RSV1000R Bol d’ Or

Endurance Pedigree: 2007 Aprilia RSV1000R  Bol d’ Or

I’ve been waiting to post one of these of a long time and something always conspired against me.  One had a salvage title, the other had a  seller who wouldn’t respond with pictures but the stars finally aligned.  All for a bike that is probably the most forgotten of all the different variants of the RSV1000.

With the hoopla over the new RSV4 I think people forget Aprilia did do a little racing with the RSV1000.  It never set the world on fire but they did get a few good results in super stock endurance racing.  That was enough for them to roll out a replica of the bike.  The paint is also a throw back to the late 80’s early 90’s Aprilia AF1’s that they enjoyed some success with in GP’s.  As you may know, throw a replica paint scheme on something and I’m good to go.

It might have been easier to find pictures of a little green guy in a saucer than the actual Aprilia race bike.

Under that loud paint is your basic RSV1000R.  I couldn’t find any production numbers;  anyone know how many hit our shores?  This one is bone stock and has turned less than 2,000 miles.

If you don’t need the latest and greatest RSV4  I’d think you might find a deal on something like this.  Maybe not on this one though,  a dealer has this one,  so as usual the BIN is inflated ($11,900).  There is the option of bidding and hopefully they haven’t set the reserve sky high as well.  Is $7,500-$8,500 a realistic range?  Loud paint isn’t for everybody but if  you want everyone to know you have arrived  you can place a bid here.

  • a buy it now price of $12k? that’s pretty unrealistic. this is by far the best looking mille that was made, but one could buy a very nice black or grey factory for about $8k with all the nice mods.

    well, glws, i guess.

  • I found one on a dealers floor…brand new 08 RSV1000R Bol d’Or with zero miles. Not sure what production number it is, but about to find out…I’m buying it! Are the prices listed above reasonable…Yes, for a used unit with 5K miles or less…For brand new unit, prolly around $9-$10k is possible, $10-12K very possible…Not sure what the MSRP was for this bike back in 08…Wish I didnt have to drive 12hours to pick it up. But some things are worth it, this being one…Would love to hear from anyone who could possibly state some interesting facts about the history and or general bike facts about this unit…I’ll post some pics, once I get it home…should be by end of next week some time…

  • I bought one last year.

    There were only 200 of these made, worldwide.
    This version is a celebration of the good results that the RSV got in the World Endurance Championship.
