Have you looked at the Ducatis?Very nice, 696 and 848 have a high power to weight ratio, which makes for more get up and go, as well as handling better.Maybe the KTM Super Duke is a better choice?

The KTM looks like it would be a blast to ride. I have ridden the Super Duke but not the 690.

both are good bikes but only one will last for what you want...go for the aprillia....the ktm,while being a belting bike there just to flighty...and its not the case of''if''it brakes ,its''when''it brakes ..cos it will...there quite a good bike to work on/split engines and such..but you dont want to be doing that 6 months down the line,do you?...no?..then buy the aprillia, ------
