It’s about to get serious

Well, things at Serious Racing really are about to get serious. I’ve just bought myself an Aprilia RSV4-R APRC. It’s the 2011 model, but is brand new, and since it’s unchanged for 2012, I think I’ve ended up with a bit of a bargain, given the price. And I’ve also ended up with a very serious motorcycling machine. Most obviously, it’s a thousand. Then there’s the whole V4 thing. Eight stage traction control, anti-wheel, launch control, three engine mappings, a 200 section rear tyre, Brembo monobloc calipers, and power to weight ratio that quite frankly scares the crap out of me. And just because, I’ve thrown an Akrapovic slip-on exhaust into the mix. Will be picking up during the week.

I haven’t taken one for a test ride. I haven’t even heard one running.¬†Am I ready for it? We’ll see.
