I think this is excellent.  Kicking the japanese when they're down Lol  What a value for that standard RSV and the Tuono.

A Tuono V4 APRC for less than a non-R Speed Triple?  An RSV4 for the same price as a Gixxer 1000?  Madness, I say!

Of course, the $2k/$3k/$4k discounting is for "leftover" 2012 inventory, I don't think the 2013's will be quite that cheap.   And keep in mind that none of the 2012 or older models have ABS as an option.   Then again, the RSV4 platform has been out for several years now, so economy of scale and production streamlining benefits are starting to kick in.

But really, this is nothing new from Piaggio, the only difference in this year's discounting is that it's advertised directly by Piaggio, whereas in the past it was all behind-the-scenes dealer credits allowing for deep discounts, if the dealer chose to pass it on.  Many didn't, to the benefit of dealers like Moto International and AF1, who did.

I think the ST demographic has come and gone ... Sadly. Given way to the Adventure market. Read: my stomach is too big to lean forward even a little bit    Lol  But, IF ... Apriilia built that bike, v4 Futura and if they gave it 350 km range PLUS reserve, I would buy that bike new. In a heartbeat. Ain't gonna happen.

i tend to agree. a new RSV4 would be so nice in the garage, but alas, i just got my 750 last April. Wife won't let me trade it in on it nor let me buy it outright. Sad  guess i shall have to wait a few years.

What a fair price for that bike!  If you're in the market for a sportbike, I think this price reduction makes is so much harder to consider the Japanese bikes.  If it were my money, I would be looking at the RSV4 and the BMW probably.

Not quite -- the Triumph & Suzuki are both still $200 under the Aprilias.  But still - this is really competitive pricing for Aprilia.   Thumbsup

too true, but times aren't what they used to be.  I'll probably find a used RSV4 in a few years and just buy it. would be a hard decision....  Track the RSV4 or the 750...  hmmm, and until i get the RSV, i'll be tracking the 750 anyways....  oh the humanity!!!

Did you make an offer on a leftover model?  I don't know about your dealers, but I'm sure there are dealers around here that will discount last year's model.

Like someone said earlier, this is what always happens, they're just advertising it this time as a new MSRP instead of a discounted price.  I don't know what all the fuss is about.  If you are comparing this to Japanese bikes, then you need to compare apples to apples.  

For me, knocking off a thou or two that you could've negotiated off anyway certainly doesn't make a $15k sportbike seem cheap.

Well, when I bought my Tuono, it wasn't last year's model... That being said, I got a fair deal.

It's still a kick ass ride!

i consider it losing cause i don't want to retire. i want to stay in til the day i die. but alas, not to be. dang HYT crap got me and i have limited time left....   Sad Sad  Sad Sad Sad
if i was totally for retiring, then i would be happy as heck, but i am not. my whole career has been military. if i could stay in and go back to what i love (avionics), i'd be the happiest guy on the planet!!!!

now, i get to be out there in the unemployment line unless something goes right and get the job i'm craving. IF i get it, i'm set. if not, you might hear me say "Welcome to Walmart" a lot.  Lol

+1 above.

It's VERY uncomfortable to ride a sportbike when one has a gut and is overweight.  Even 20-30 lbs. over makes a big difference.  If you are fit and healthy, you can ride ANY sportbike all day long and not feel like you just ran a marathon afterwards.
