Morgantown, West Virginia
A superb sport touring motorcycle from Aprilia. This has been a great bike for me for the past 8 years. I bought the bike from the original owner with about 30k on it. Sensible ergos make it at home both in the twisties or gobbling up miles on the slab. The Futura has the best headlights I've had in the dozen bikes I've owned. The stock saddle is amazingly all-day comfortable for rider and pillion. I've taken the bike regularly to NC and it's longest trip was from Texas. Having riden in 100degree days and through hail-storms, the windshield strikes a good balance between shielding and ventilation. As a bonus, the Futura has no hot-spots for the rider during stop-and-go traffic. The Futura's curb weight of 520lb (wet) is the same as the VFR but the bulletproof Rotax 998cc puts out 10% more hp and 30% more torque that is supremely tractable. The slipper clutch works, this is an easy bike to ride (quickly). However, it shares the engine with the Tuono and Mille and a degree of discipline and respect is prudent.It currently has 50, 551 miles and counting.

No leaks, drips or anything. Bodywork is clean, no cracks. Some minor blems on the panniers and tips of mirrors from moving about the garage.Never wrecked or dropped.Bad: The horn is broken, but I have a replacement and plan to fix it prior to selling.I don't have a bunch of spares for this bike which is testament to how reliable it is. This is a well-sorted machine; I wouldn't hesitate to fly-and-ride her home. New buyer gets a fresh oil change and dinner.

60 degree V-Twin Rotax motor is grunty and indestructible. These bikes will go 50,000 miles without blinking. Matching hard case factory luggage included. Custom full exhaust system sounds amazing. Awesome sport touring bike. Can't be matched at this price or much more. Sporty and fast, but comfy for long miles hauling too. Low miles - mostly accumulated on three long road trips. Nearly perfect example. Beautiful paint. Garage kept and maintained by Spectrum Motorsports and now ducati of Newport Beach. Sorry to see it go, but I don't ride much anymore.
