So with spring around the corner (kind of), I am again looking to get onto a new bike. I'm dying to get others input on this as I just can't figure out whats the better fit / bike for me. I'm 5'10 and 175 pounds, so the downside to the Aprilia it just seems smaller, but then I hear of the mechanical problems with the 848. I've literally spent the last year looking at each of the bikes and can't make up my mind! So if you can chime in with your pros / cons to help me out!!
