2007 Aprilia RXV 5.5 review
Great concept - awful execution
Review of the RXV 5.5 submitted on 2012-05-10.
Unbelievable performance. I mean that - unbelievably good performance. When you are riding this thing, and it´s operating properly, you will be grinnning from ear to ear. Unfortunately that won´t be happening very often. The worst built bike I´ve ever owned. I actually got the dealership to give me a brand new one because the first one was so bad. The second one was nearly as bad. Constant breakdowns. Insane maintenance requirements (change the special oil every three hours), no fuel range. Uncomfortable seating (although you´ll be standing when riding). CONSTANT breakdowns are one thing, but even worse is how hard it is to do any work on the bike yourself. You just can´t do it. To replace spark plugs you need to take the front end off the bike. Literally. TERRIBLE bike. Avoid it like the plague (but encourage your friends to buy one and then ride theirs).
