Hey, a buddy of mine is looking at an Aprilia rxv450, and I have never really heard much about them. Anyone have some opinions or ideas?

Thanks.

Yep...be careful what year you get. Earlier ones had issues.
IIRC you can tell the difference by the colour of the sealant used on the engine cases. :confused2: Too long ago....can't remember.
Do a search on an Aprilia forum...plenty of info there.

the RXV is the offroad model with headlight and (I believe) turn signals and plate.

This one I believe is an 07'. It seems like a rather high maintenance bike from what I've read too.
