2001 Aprilia RST1000 Futura; very good condition
New rear tire; New chain and sprockets.
Great sport tourer. The Italian VFR.
I really like the bike, ut it is time for a change. It already has Rick's regulator and brown connector fixes that owners do to these models to proactively do to prevent a breakdown.
Ready to ride. 45,585 miles. Runs strong.
Stock underseat exhaust, ingle sided swingarm, orquey v-twin, reat features in the gauge cluster including fuel gauge and ambient temperature.
Here is some content from the CycleWorld review of the bike:
A 998cc, 0-degree V-Twin that pushed the fuel-injected, ully faired, 18-pound machine to a 11.48-second/118.08-mph quarter-mile and a top speed of 145 mph.
Why it won: The angularly styled Futura places its major emphasis on the "sport" half of its sport-touring mission. Its engine, ased on that of the RSV Mille repli-racer, as retuned for more midrange, ut its aluminum chassis is all its own. Its standout features include a single-sided swingarm, n under-tail exhaust, uick-detach hard saddlebags and the most comfortable seat ever bolted onto any motorcycle that had the word "sport" in its description. ....But on a twisty backroad, t carves up the curves just about as effectively as its racier sibling.
