    Ex Ducati rider waiting for his new V4 Factory

    Hi, just ordered my 1st Aprilia and now counting down until March when it arrives.
    It took a lot of doing but everything I've heard/read/seen indicates I'm about to receive an awesome piece of kit!
    Can't wait.

    Enjoy it fella, as a current Duc / Ape rider I can tell you that the V4 is a proper grunty screamer of an engine, just misses some of the low end twin torque.

    Mine is still in the shop. Delivery driver can't make it through the snow. A nice 18 plate factory with nowhere to go!

    Finally got my factory�� awesome piece of kit.
    Unfortunately some workshop idiot decided to polish the screen with sand paper and it would appear that they also had a 6 mile test ride and maxed out at 102mph.
    Not impressed with dealer in the slightest.

    102mph sounds about right for 6th gear at 7000 rpm not what you want to see on a new bike though hope it all works out for you.
