    I really hope Honda do come up with something outstanding for the new Fireblade

    Little old Aprilia manage to produce the RSV4 1100 Factory - Surely Honda can come up with something - fingers crossed

    A reminder of what little old Aprilia can manage:

    It is hey. Imagine if it was made by Honda - they would sell out.

    Could have has the RSV4 for £18999 glad I didn't £17000 now. For a bike that's been available for probably 7 months in the UK, which started at £21500, whoever bought one has lost hell a lot of cash in that time.

    And likewise for those of us who shelled out full retail (but inclusive of a few perks) for the SP2s.:(:(

    Can get brand new now for £16,000. Friggin' asses.:mad::mad:

    Yes, I was thinking I'd have to lower the value of my standard 2017 blade when my insurance renewal comes up.. Hopefully that'll be reduced premium too.. Still, think of all the fun you've had on it, priceless right?!

    I here you Nigel, but just remember the RSV4 is a new model to this year, your SP2 is basically at least 18months old, has is mine albeit on a 69reg. RSV4's/Tuono's lose value probably more so than any other bike, why I don't know they always seem to be up there in the mag reviews.

    Seems to be the trend with Aprilias in general. I had an RSV1000R Factory until recently. Bought and sold for mid 4K (to buy a 954 Blade). An equivalent Honda, say a 2003 - 05 SP-1 is going to be twice the price.

    Don't you think we'd be sprouting it off the moment we knew anything? Well, except @derchef , that is!:D

    There's some guys from the MV forum actually going there. I'm going to PM one who I get along with and ask him to pay particular attention for me. Things is though, if there is something there, it will be headlined across every MCN and click-bait site within minutes!!;)

    The air intake is identical to a ZX10r I think this could be a ruse as for Stefan Bradl riding doesn’t he wear an AGV helmet

    It does look similar to a Kwaka at the front end agreed...... BRADL actually wears X lite helmet and Dainese leathers so it could be him but its not a 100% indication it is him.... We'll see :D
