This really is a racebike with lights. What drives you crazy in traffic will make perfect sense at 70mph+. It was made to go fast and the rear view mirrors are useless to someone of my girth. Have plenty of points available on your drivers license.

Been riding a 1999 BMW R1100S, but needed more lean angle (scraping pegs/brakelever/jugs, preload full-up). Bought a black 2003 RSV Mille R June 30, 2003. Brakes are downright amazing. One finger stoppies, yet good feel and control. Makes my S feel like mush. Picked bike up and had it "derestricted" asap. That alone makes for some nice tonal quality, and no problems with the stock fuel injection map either. During first service (1000 miles), added the racing akropovic dual pipes and chip kit. In a word... AWEsome! I was worried at first that the pipes might be too loud, and regularly piss off my neighbors. Not to worry. No where near as loud or obnoxious as those squid Jap bikes. Nice mellow bass at idle, especially near semi-enclosed areas like between cars or in garages, and sweeeet Italian sportscar-type growl/scream above 6k. Yeah, refi'd the house to get it, but now that it's properly broken in and piped, I deem it worth it! Track dayz, here we come. Live your dreams... you need something to talk about in the nursing home when you're 80 and gumming your mash potatoes.

If you want to ride in the cold dont buy a mille it wont start. On the other hand it does make you feel like a rock star and the ground clearance forget about it this thing should come with elbo pucks,100mph stopies no problem just two finger those brembos. But now the bad part,dealer back up it has to be the worst out of the top manufacturers months on end to receive parts,and num nuts service personel. I really do hope this changes because if the cube derived bike is ever built I will be the first in line

If you want the V-twin feel of a superbike, this is it. I Only have 425 miles on this '03 RSV R Haga Replica, but it comes with all the s*#@! Ohlins front, rear & steering damper, new Brembo 4 pods (two fingers may be too much, they so smooth and powerful), Carbon add-ons, term/ti twin mufflers, eprom performance chip, performance gearing, adj. levers, pirelli dragons, OZ wheels, plus 130hp rotax beast of a motor, 403lbs. There's 59 more out there just like mine in the USA. Ride a ducati, ride an RC51, do your homework. The ducati guys know, so does Honda, Aprilia gives much more and will make you a better rider in the real world. Nothing else comes close. Huge torque, great manners for a superbike. Its so thrilling to ride and its like being on a rope the curves. In the really challenging tight curves it comes out exploding with torque. Of course, after a 200 miles its time to get off and reflect. Yes, the aggressive position will tire you out. But, this is from a 20 yr. Harley guy. I'm 46, don't be your dad, don't follow, lead on Aprilia.
