Great bike!

Just asked since it seemed it would be worth as much as the proper bracket unless it was worn.

Good looking Shanghai build...should really rock when you get some proper engine management.

What do you think of the RSVR? My brother runs the AMA Aprilia team. The new RSV4s are beyond cool. If Jeremy Clarkson wasn't such a twit, it'd live permanently in the DB9 Super Sub Zero Freezer. It feels like a 125 under you, and sounds like a GP bike.

Kind of doubles as a heat shield I guess.

Once you step up to a litrebike you're corrupted forever. Used to ride a Daytona 955i....wonderful bike. Not quite on par with the Aprilia...but certainly a gentleman's sportbike.

Isn't that the old 20valve design?

Those were neat bikes...that and the fireblade are burned into my pubescent memory.

The RSV4 feels like a 125? It weighs 395 lbs dry though, how could it feel like such a light bike?
