    For such people EVERY bike in the world is available readily including FULL spare parts and mechanic availability. Such people do not need to wait for Aprilia launch, they can get Ducati, Harley-Davidson, BMW and every other bike from private importers like Ryders or Wills.Such importers not only offer full OEM parts but also ANY and I mean ANY performance part which the customer wish to have. And these people will NEVER pay 1 million for a tiny 125cc bike which makes just 15 hp. The class of people you talk of do not NEED xtreme motors to launch any thing, they already have access to ALL bikes in the world !!

    And also, there is only one 'L'' in Aprilia. Get that corrected in the title of the thread. LMAO, I think xtreme were in such a hurry to 'launch' this bike that they forgot to even check the spelling of its name

    how cheap can one get..

    claiming outright about official dealership rights for a brand of motorcycles out of nowhere - specially when you already have their parent co. (ricksha makers) dealing with a local Pakistani entity for decades.

    If anyone recalls there also was a "JEEP" dealership in Karachi that nicely pocketed monies and left because they only had imported a handful of trucks (political dhanda) to sell at full + premium retail prices.

    The same happened again with the old BMW E36 imports of the 90s.. small time gray market importers claimed dealer rights and ran off after selling all their little stock.

    Now this - a little factor is that Ravi is importing them but who is providing after sales service, For such bikes its best to deal directly with the local agent. e.g. If I want to buy a new busa I would contact Pakistan Suzuki Motorcycles, not some face book fanpage.

    The problem with Pakistan is that no one knows jack beyond Hondas, Suzukis, and Yamahas. None of these are prestigious brands. More like mass market for people who cannot afford Italian thoroughbreds.

    If you were abroad and you said, I will have R1 over a Ducati Panigale or an Aprilia RSV. People will raise their eyebrows and more likely to leave you alone to rant about your Gixers, R1s and CBRs.

    Yaar jahalat ki bhi aik had hoti hai.

    You can only compare this way. Use Google. I am fed up providing justifications for the illiterate masses of Pakistan who are stuck up on their Gixers, R1s and CBRs.

    Aprilia RS 4 125 VS Honda CBR 125/150R VS YZF R 125 - All are 125 cc bikes.

    Aprilia RSV4 1000 VS Yamaha R1 VS Honda GSXR 1000 VS CBR 1000RR VS Kawasaki Ninja Z1000 VS MV Agusta F4 1000S VS Ducati Panigale etc. All of these are 1000 cc bikes

    I am NOT comparing Apples with Oranges buddy but these nincompoops are who don't know jack beyond Japanese bikes.

    These people are comparing Aprilia RS4 125 which is a 125cc bike with Yamaha R1/ Honda CBR 10000RR/ Suzuki Hayabusa etc. which are 1000cc and above bikes and declaring Japanese bikes to be WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY faster.

    You are supposed to compare Aprilia RSV4 1000cc which is a different bike than Aprilia RS4 125cc with R1s and CBR 1000s. Compare like for like and see whether Aprilias and Ducatis are better than Japanese bikes or not.

    For the rest, I would quote Einstein here. "
    The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits."

    Baki akalmand key liyey ishara hi kaafi hai. Use Google to know the truth.

    Mein ab thak gaya hoon samjhatey samjhatey. Inhein abhi tak yeh hi nahin pata key Aprilia RS4 125 aur Aprilia RSV4 1000 do different bikes hein. Agey kya baat karni.

    And I can bet Aprilia RS 4 125 will beat Honda CBR 125/150R and Yamaha YZF R 125 on the track with much ease. The MOTO GP 125 cc results speaks for itself. See how many times have Aprilia won the MOTO GP 125cc championship with their RS125. You will have your answer. CBR 125 and Yamaha YZF R 125 don't even come close.

    So, in both 1000cc and 125 cc MOTO GP Championship classes Aprilia is the leader with the most wins, and has been for some years now.

    Google yourself for facts and proof of what I said above.

    Here are the official statistics for MOTO GP 125 cc class. See who has won how many championships and on which bikes. Last title won by Honda was in 2005 by Swiss Thomas L?thi. See who has been winning the title lately.

    Sorry I got apples and oranges totally wrong here. You are correct.
    Btw Point is about bang for the buck.
    Cbr 125 is 6 something and rs4 125 is 10 so basically one would get the cbr 600...

    as budget buyer will not care for Italianness.....

    But for the flagship bike and premium buyer does care but it is not launched here.

    The pinnacle of motorbiking world is called Superbike World Championships equivalent to F1 or Formula 1. The top most category in the competitive world of motorbiking where only 1000cc bikes are allowed. Now, see the link posted below to see how many championships has Aprilia won with RSV4 1000. No doubt Japanese bikes are highly competitive but to say that Aprilias and Ducatis are WAYYYYYYYY slower than their Japanese counterparts is just jahalat.

    Yaar, you have a point. But iska jawab mein is tarhan doon ga. People who buy Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Maseratis don't give a toss about bang for the buck. Because they know Japanese engineering is no match for Italian craftsmanship. Puri duniya ko pata hai. Same is the case here.

    But hum yeh behas kar saktey hein key Ferrari yaan Lamborghini yaan Aprilia yaan Ducati yaan MV Augusta Pakistan mein launch nahin honi chahiyey because people don't have such deep pockets here. They can't pay over the top for Italian manufacturing like people happily do in the west, because they know their worth. That's debatable.

    And for the premium buyer they brought the flagship model of Aprilia, RSV 1000 which has won several Superbike Championship titles. So, they brought bikes to cater for all levels of buyer.

    Now, do keep in mind that you cannot wish to buy a Ferrari Italia or Lamborghini Aventador in the price of a Nissan GTR or Honda NSX. Jis bandey ney Ferrari Italia yaan Lamborghini Aventador leni hai usey pata hai key Italian cars several times more expensive than their Japanese counterparts like Nissan GTR or Honda NSX.

    Same is the case with Aprilia, Ducati, MV Augusta VS Honda CBR, Yamaha R1, Kawasaki Ninja, Suzuki GXSR.

    Afford na kar pana kisi cheez ko aik alehda baat hai. But yeh kehna key jo cheez afford nahin kar saktey woh jo shayad afford kar saktey hein us sey buri hai. Yeh to paglon wali baat hai.

    i think u should correct your knowledge here last time aprilia participated in motogp class motorcycle championship as factory team is in 2002 - 2004 with there prototype aprilia rs cube and they are out off premier class since then and never won single race, i m not talking about crt teams ... Japanese manufacturers always gave tough time to italian manufacturers in motogp... first time in previous 40 years ducati beats Japaneses in 2007 since then ducati is out off top 3 positions... rs4v, r1, cbr, these are road bikes derived from motogp technology and downgraded ... motogp bikes are totally different.. prototypes and build for performance after every single race engine is either replaced or overhauled... yamaha m1, honda rc214v, ducati gp13..... kawasaki, suzuki, aprilia, mv augusta, triumph, beneli.. they are out of motogp...

    ahaan so you are saying ducati 1098 and 1198 is 1000 cc .... formula 1 and motogp is where manufacturers comes up with there prototypes and future technology these machines costs millions of dollars of research.... not with there road models like in super bike .... never ever compare formula 1 and motogp premier class with other racing classes.. super bike champion ship is based on those bikes which is currently available in markets gsx cbr etc .... super bike is also under FIM it doesn't mean its motogp....
