missing a trick
I agree with comments below.
However Aprilia are missing a trick and not in touch with the current Hypermotard trends, this is the type of bike I ride and my friends ride, on our own we like the handling and high speed on very twisty undulating lanes, but we like to travel not to rise the same roads every time, we need 150 miles min per tank to get across these remote areas. We are doing around 200-300 miles in a day serious twisty hard riding, the seat needs to cope with that too, most dont and it costs nealry £300 to get them altered to the way they should have been made in the first place.
We also like, just a few times per year, on the very few scorching summer days and warm summer evenings to take our women out for a gentle ride out along the coast or up to cafe's in the dales etc, not to have a good set of rear pegs and a grippy stepped seat so they can stay on easily is no good.
At first I just thought it was us and other small few ex offroaders who prefer naked raw type bikes for this purpose but I read an article that said the majority sold were doing what we were doing AND were being used as milder adventure bikes abroad, for instance if people were only riding down forest tracks or dirt roads which were fairly smooth and dint need a full adventure bike which arent as good on the tarmac.
Aprilia must be missing this information and missing their market, no need to comrpomise the bike as this isnt what riders want, just add these additional features, offer bigger tank (dont need fill it on short blasts) stepped seat with gel, rear pegs.
