      No, not a new RSV-4 but something more in my price range.

      First, here is the bike I bought last year that started the Aprilia addiction (2001 RSV Mille):





      And here is the possible new (to me) bike: 2004 RSV Factory with about 2500 miles - actual photos - the seller has a photo studio:

      Do eeeeet!!!! I love that bike. I had a 2007 Tuono myself and that platform is just SOOOO much fun. Black is the best color too.

      There is carbon fiber but the side panels are not, they are just painted flat black from the factory - it was an OEM color option that I think plays homage to the previous generation RSV that could be had in all flat black. The right side "R" decal is messed up but the seller is including a new one with the purchase. Here is a press photo: http://www.mcnews.com.au/Wallpaper/A...F_RHF_1024.jpg

      My 2001 Mille was originally all flat black until the original owner decided he wanted something different.

      it's also missing the IP sticker on the lower part of the fairing too. I'm guessing he dropped it or messed up that side & it was replaced

      Good eye - I caught that too. Yes, he did replace that plastic. Owner fully disclosed all that happened to the bike even before came and looked at it. It is what it is. Pipes and swingarm have a few dings and scratches and a few other minor odds and ends that I could correct for about $200. It will never be show-room perfect but I am getting it for about a third of the price when it was new and that doesn't even include the upgrades.

      The owner is a very cool guy. He is 63 and after he went down on this one, his wife said he should start acting his age. His other bike is a 1098S Tricolor that has like 250 miles on it but I think he is going to try to keep that. I also wouldn't mind having his 993 Turbo

      If everything goes as planned (how often does that happen?), I should have it this weekend.
