I saw a few posts on the Aprilia out there, haven't heard much about it stateside but what are the North American street 'tarders thoughts on owning one? I've thought about the WR250X but for a few more grand (okay almost double the $$$), it's got a meaner look, much more HP/TQ and better brakes/suspension... Granted heavy and big for a real SM but as a street bike, it'd be a HOOT in my eyes. Shame I live in Florida where every turn is a 90* and elevation changes happen only at over passes and railroad crossings. Anyone know for sure when they are due to be released and at what approx price? I've heard anywhere from $8999 to $12K!!! If it's closer to the low end, I may get one.
