For Sale: 2007 Aprilia RSV Mille R 1000 Factory
Today’s post is all about the eye candy. I know how you RSBFS fans go nuts for Ohlins suspension, dig Brembo radial mount calipers and love you some carbon fiber like Rossi loves an apex – so I found some for you. To mix things up a bit, this one does not even have Ducati logos plastered all over it. This, my friends, is a Aprilia RSV 1000R Factory.
An evolution of the original RSV Mille series that shipped in 1998, this Aprilia features a 60 degree v-twin sourced from Rotax. The big, booming motor was bolted to a twin-spar chassis, and liberally sprinkled with top shelf componentry throughout. The result is a stunning – and stunningly quick – interpretation of a modern sportbike. Did I mention that it has very low miles on it?
From the seller:
2007 Aprilia RSV Mille R 1000 Factory. 3705 original miles on it.
Bike is LOADED, and has just been fully serviced with all fluids changed by a Factory Authorized Aprilia Dealer. This is an amazing bike!! Clean Title in hand and is blemish free! NEVER down, NEVER on the track. $18900.00 new!
Look at the photos. They tell the story.
The pictures do indeed speak for themselves. This is one very clean sportbike. But what makes this more special than a “plain Jane” RSV Mille R 1000? Well, the Factory model takes the fantastic foundation of the base RSV and adds even more goodness: Better suspension (Ohlins front and rear), an adjustable Ohlins steering damper, gold-colored frame accents, gold accented wheels, and carbon fiber for practically everything else that is not gold.
What you are left with is a magnificent piece of eye candy with some serious credentials to back it up. Power, performance and reasonable exclusivity (especially when compared to mass-marketed Japanese machinery) can be yours for a pittance compared to new. This bike was approaching 20 large in the showroom, but the BIN number is less than half that. And the bike still looks brand new!
The seller has listed a ton of pictures, and I suggest you check them out. There are some additions, such as the Zero Gravity tinted windscreen and the color-coded ASV levers, but to me it really completes the Factory look of the bike. This Aprilia certainly looks very clean and very well loved. There is some bidding interest being shown, with the auction slowing climbing above $6,000 with reserve not yet met. For its looks and performance – and depending on the ever important reserve number – this one just might turn out to be a real bargain.
