anyone have $10K spare change lying around?

Perhaps it was the result of anxiety?

That might be the ugliest rear end I've ever seen. I about threw up my Hungryman.

I can see your point but I bet if you clean it up a bit like you have to with just about all bikes out these days, especially ones with a Euro influence to house those MASSIVE plates they have, I bet it would look pretty clean

We offer three kinds of service @ Resurrection
GOOD - CHEAP - FAST
You can pick any two
GOOD service CHEAP won't be FAST
GOOD service FAST won't be CHEAP
FAST service CHEAP won't be GOOD
and cold beer.

I'd love to help but I don't chase parts.
Please contact other forum members and supporters for parts.

Weighs the same as a hypermotard, with less power.

I like how Aprilia incorporates the exhaust can into the bike's design, like the SXV too, instead of it just hanging off somewhere like an afterthought.

But yeah, you'd have to put some Arrrows or something on there to let it sound like it should. Nothing sadder than a V-twin that can't breathe. So add $1k to that $10K.
