    It's a real shame isn't it, as when they are working right they are such a good bike and a bit different from the norm.

    If they had a change of heart and had a better after sales service, they would double their sales easily!

    Yep, same for me too.

    Love my T but will never buy another Aprilia.

    The RSV4 has won every test going, and yet they only sold about 7 last year. Rather than try and understand why their sales are so poor, Aprilia has just stopped bringing the standard RSV4 to the UK.

    Hi I tried the paint pot and bleeding, in the end I got expensive pads and then bled, worked a treat.

    Basically, all you do is hang a moderately heavy item (can of paint, jug of water) from the rear brake lever over night. I can verify from first-hand experience that this eliminates (for a while anyway) the mushy feeling that, over time, can creep into the rear brakes on the Tuono.

    I hope it sorted it for you mate but I have a sneaky feeling it will revert back to being useless.

    Im not suprized at poor sales performance by aprilia , if their attitude at both NEC bike show and the EXCell bike show are anything to go on , the bods on the stand looked so dis interested and unaproachable .
    Ducati on the other hand are a different kettle of fish all together .
