    CR700AF?

    Wonder who's making the motor for them? Rotax?

    Did you see they have a SuperMotard kit for it?

    Probably Rotax. If that was a multi cylinder, it'd be pretty awesome, that just seems like too much displacement for a two-stroke single, probably redlines at like 6000rpm. I'd like to see a supermotard with a 500cc two-stroke twin

    Yeah, but you could probably tow a Mack truck with it.

    Don't let navydevildoc see that, he's lusting after one of those to go with his RSV.

    Ooooh yeah, the RXV/SXV are pretty bad ass. One problem... distribution in the US for 06 is so limited that less than one per dealer will be shipped here. Everyone that has ridden them has loved it, and the hype is getting so loud that I expect those few units to get snatched up very quickly.

    These just prove again that the Italians know how to make a damn sexy piece of machinery, but need to learn a few things about supply chain management.

    Crap. I'm calling my man Matt tomorrow. The only Aprilia dealer in the state, I'll see if it's already spoken for.
    This is seriously one of two bikes I've been waiting to see produced so I could buy.

    Rotax has allways supplied the engines for ATK other than a very short stint with honda. Last i heard maico was maico of the netherlands. Did germany buy the name back? I figured maico was history. I used to ride maicos a lot, i still own a 490 sandspider and have restored several. i'll have to post a pic of the 1974 AW model i restored in 95. I allways have been a big maico nut, i guess not any more if i didnt no maico was back in germany. I guess there is hope of a comeback from maico.

    Yeah, it's a conspiracy. The 700 motor is definately a Maico. Cool link, check out the photo of the bore on the bottom!

    Good point. One factor is that a lot of the time they won't allow their product to be sold alongside "Jap Crap" in multi-line toy stores. Of course, it takes a pretty huge market and some clever marketing to make a standalone Aprilia or Ducati store survive.
