Agreed, I've never seen one do that, only Ducati and Aprilia.

I was in the Aprilia dealer and he offered a RSV4 RF for me to test ride. I was like "you serious?"....lol

I owned a 2015 R1M and have a 2016 RF, I prefer the Aprilia in everyway compared to the M..My bikes are TRACK-RACE only so I have NO idea about street riding them...You might laugh and find this hard to believe, But my favorite bike to track and race is my 2013 GSXR 750, just does everything very well and I can ride it to its limit,138.6 TO the RW... I also have a new ZX10RR with 195.6 to the RW, I'm faster on the SAME tracks with my 750..My next bike will be the New Ducati V-4 or a 2018 GSXR 1000....
Thanks from vqtt, royal and GunMoto

Never rode the R1 but I love my 2010 Ape and will probably upgrade to a newer one in the near future.

I dont know Aprilia that well, but that was exactly the look the demo bike had they offered me to ride.

Cool, my bike's track fairings are the RSV4 FW Misano replica which is Aprilia's factory works 250hp bike that is $104k and you can also get a couple different superstock builds for less. Too bad Ducati didn't offer something along those lines.
