It's an Aprilia Moto 6.5, an enduro bike all prettied up for city living. The motor is a rotax 650cc so parts for it are a doddle but as the review I linked to below says, the body parts are made from unobtainium. Just have to try not to drop it.

This particular bike was brought over with fourteen others by the Prada Americas Cup team and sold on when they left. Last owner only rode it twice, he's got five bikes in his garage.

10,600km on the speedo, 1998 manufacture.

Strangely enough, one of the few things that attracted her indoors to me was that she enjoyed riding pillion. Something about a throbbing motor, adrenaline and a man clad in leather...:confused:;)

However, what ya going to do if you wreck it ?...uh...I think the parts are just about "unobtainable." Use it for a yard ornament? :tongue:

I've seen some newer Aprilias, I have heard they are good bikes. The lines are very artful and flowing. Rotax engines are very proven as well. Nice ride Pari!

Btw, I like your paint scheme much better than the one on the website you posted.:cool:

Nice bike, congrats. Is engine in good condition? Long downtime can damage anything
