Hey guys! So just picked up my 6th bike a few days ago. I purchased one of those new Aprilia RS660s back in February and had non stop issues between the fuel gauge not working, 3 software updates and replacing the exhaust valves. So I decided to trade it in for a 2021 CBR600RR to save my self from continuous headaches. Glad to be back on a Honda.

Wow, so many issues so soon on the Ape? That's really unfortunate but welcome back to the more reliable side of things.

Yeah the CBR may not have all the fancy doo-dads of the other bikes, but it does have stone axe reliability and looks damn sexy too! Congrats.

aprilia is the #1 motorcycle manufacturer when it comes to producing buyer's remorse from their customers. if that were a metric it wouldn't even be a close race.

My vote for buyer's remorse production is MV Agusta. "Motorcycle Art" - yeah right. It better be art because it is worthless sitting all summer waiting for parts to arrive from Italy.

which one did you have, how new>?

i was eyeing one up, an F3
Don't do it :confused: Unless you have a secondary bike you can ride. I was looking into those F3's before the Aprilia and stayed away from them. They seemed to have the same maintenance issues with continuous software updates and sitting in dealers for weeks at a time before being serviced.

I had a brand new 2010 F4. So many things went wrong the first year that I realized a good strategy to utilize if you MUST buy an Italian bike. I recommend finding the bike you want used with less than 5,000 miles on it and verify that a good shop (or a good dealership) fixed everything under warranty. Then, even without warranty you might be okay for awhile.
