All I can say is it's just like a CR 500 power band. Unreal fast, power comes on and the front end pops up instantly. Quality of the parts not to great, everything is cast and looks rough wasn't impressed by that at all. Most the panels are nut and bolt. Which is shitty to work on.

The power is way to much if your ever thinking of getting the dualsport version. I couldn't imagine riding it on tight nasty trails you would be fiighting the bike all day.

As a motard this think is going to rip hard on the track. In the right hands this bike will fly. I doubt a beginner would be able to ride it too it's potential. It does look really cool and will be turning heads all day. It sounds really good like a hyper V twin. You'll know it's an Aprillia coming before you even see it.

Overall I like it.

I think the most negative thing about this bike is the fuel capacity. I understand it has a 7.5 liter tank and a range of about 85k.
The most positive thing of course is that it's a twin! That's just so cool IMO
I've been drooling over this bike since I first saw pics about three years ago, but I do agree to some extent about the finish etc... I think they could have squeezed many more poser bucks out of buyers had they put in some more effort in that regard.

I didn't consider that but, I found it pretty crazy that it requires an oil change every 500 k's or 3 hours on the track..

I was told that it also has a 20 hour motor. It would make a pretty cool streetbike, but you'd be rebuilding it pretty often. This came from the mechanic himself, he also echoed Bill's comments that it's a bitch to work on.

manufacturer recomendations are always over kill with race bikes, they also say with motocross bikes to do the top end every 5 hours or 2 races

Yeah, those maintenance recommendations sound pretty standard for a race bike. I use to do oil changes <500k on my last (street) 'tard...although I never really rode it much on the street. :p

This 'priller sounds INSANE though. :eek Man, I'd love to take one out for a rip...although I doubt anyone would let me. If only I had the $$$ to blow on so many toys...

The Husky's came with a 15 hour rebuild spec according to the manual. But when I researched it this was more realistically 50 to 70 hours of track time before a top end is needed.

Even that number would scare a lot of folks away but if you're going to play with one of the new generation mega machines you gotta pay fer yer fun!

One thing I LOVE about the Husky is how easy it is to work on. I'm pretty sure that Bill will confirm that you can do 90 % of a total strip and rebuild with probably 12 tools and that 80% of the work only requires that one 8 mm socket.
