PROPERLY DRY STORED FROM 2012 (when MOT ran out) to 2020 & OWNED SINCE 2008
BY A MATURE "NATIONAL ASSOCIATION of HEAD TEACHERS" BIKER WHO HAD TO SELL
DUE TO ILL HEALTH & I BOUGHT OFF A REPUTABLE DEALER
 
The bike can only be described as wonderful original condition. It has the lovely black "Aprilia Racing"
end cans & for money is in the best livery...an almost fluorescent red with contrasting silver set off
by that beautiful factory finish part polished frame & very dark metallic graphite grey wheels
It comes, being an Aprilia with Brembo brakes & Ohlins steering damper.
 
NOW FOR THE UNINITIATED THESE 2nd GEN RSV's IN THEIR 1ST YEAR (This is one of the very 1st)
HAVE AN IRRITATING FLAW...IF THE BATTERY RUNS COMPLETELY FLAT OR IS DISCONNECTED
THEN THE SPEEDO RESETS TO ZERO
 
As I have the stamped service book & invoices I can see that the history is as follows:
23.04.04 1st Service @ 830 Miles by Supplying Dealer "Kickstart Motorcycles" of Port Talbot
06.04.06 2nd Service @ 6904 Miles by "Souther Cross" incl. recalls & updated MAP
17.05.07 Further Service "GILDO'S" didn't put mileage down
25.07.09 Further Service "MAXMOTO" of Bury St Edmunds now owned by last owner
& the invoice comes to £481.42 NOW this one shows apart from service "diagnose
electrical faults" & battery at which point speedo was reset to zero.  Mr Glover 
the last owner then did a total of 519 miles before storing it away in 2012 and
therefore after my ride out/shake out today the total mileage reads 550 
(may go up if weather is good again as I love to ride these!)
Looking at stone chips, lots of experience detailing bikes & the general lack of
use I would say the mileage is probably around 11,000 miles all in - my be less
but that's a good honest educated calculation
 
... PLEASE BARE IN MIND IT IS 17 YEARS OLD
