When did this kind of bike become a middleweight?  :)


Well...it kinda is a middleweight.  That just happens to have 2 cylinders and squeeze in under lightweight rules.  It's pretty close to middleweight power.


You pick up this bike and you can get in lightweight, but probably get in midleweight supersport and do well too if it's a smallish track, (not road america)

LOL!  Middleweight power 20 years ago.  Those bikes are still available. 

Lightweights 20 years ago did well in Middleweight on small tracks.  :D

Roughly $15k out the door with Ohlins shock and Acropvich race exhaust.  At least according to Aprilia's pre order website.

I'm looking for the old discussion of the Aprilia SV650 category bike from years ago.  Unsure if that was the Shiver or something even prior to 2008.
Maybe one of these:

The more I hear and see about this, the more I want it. Ari Henning's recent test ride article sums it up with the best point: "a welcome respite for those suffering from 600 cc PTSD"
