Finally saw the red 1000R

My dealer got the black and also the red F41000R bikes in.

I have to admit that I ran right by the MVs to see the new Aprilia 550 supermoto though. That's gotta be the coolest thing one can own for less than 10k. He started it and revved it for me and it revs quick like a drag race engine or something. The engine is positively puny. Makes a 250cc single seem like it's too big. And a 180/55 rear tire? It's gotta stick like crazy. I might do silly things to have one.

Anyway, the red 1000R is the one for me, pretending I could actually afford it right now. Wow. I'm a sucker for red and silver with dark colored wheels I guess.
