“Tour de Garages” – Post 5: The Sexy Aprilia

 Andrew I think you must have met one of these sexy Italians before.  Terrific guess!

This is the 2004 Aprilia RSVR Factory 1000 (“The Mille was the previous model in North America and Europe but,” according to the owner, “may still have been called the Mille in Australia.”) Ken bought this bike on EBay.
The Aprilia goes from 0 to 60 in less than 3 seconds (if you're so inclined!) According to Ken, nobody can beat the Italians for motorcycle design and I’d have to agree. This bike has some of the sexiest tail lights and pipes I’ve ever seen on the ass end of a sport bike. I suppose they designed it this way on purpose ... that's about all most people get to see.

I'm really impressed by the motorcycle I.Q. out there, and I have to appologise to all those who guessed before and didn't get linked to ... I have gone back to the previous posts and linked to your blogs (mistake corrected.) Keep Guessing - You are impressive!
And next ... something a bit more challenging?
Italian spice!


  1. Unfortunately I've only lusted after them...

    I know what the next pic is too...

    1. Andrew I think you may have a little thing for the Italians as well ... The Aprilia is a beaut! Too bad my legs are too short to even think about it.

  2. Karen, I know next to nothing about motorcycles, so Google is my only hope. My guess is that the mystery bike is a 1997 or 1998 Ducati Super Sport 900.

    1. David, you must be a keen observer ... a real close guess. Well done moto-sleuth.
