Post-Listing Update: This Aprilia RSV1000R Haga Replica did not meet reserve at $8,200.
The Aprilia RSV1000R is one of the best sportsbikes to come out of Italy in the last couple of decades, though we think it suffers a little in public perception only because it doesn’t say Ducati on the tank. No problem – Aprilia fans know what they’re getting, nonetheless. In 2002, Aprilia had a relatively successful season in the World Superbike Championship (WSBC), where Noriyuki Haga piloted this bike to a 4th place finish over the season. Aprilia decided to celebrate the year after with a replica of Haga’s bike, the beauty that you see in front of you. Only 300 were created, and this is number 121.
We have to take a minute to poke fun at Aprilia, though. Normally, a company celebrates a win, or at least a podium finish. This is the second Aprilia limited edition that we’ve featured where the event being commemorated…isn’t that special. Still, this bike is a beauty, and comes with plenty of extras. Some of those extras include a blue Ergal top triple tree with Haga’s signature, dual titanium Akrapovic pipes, Brembo brakes and full Ohlins suspension (plus damper).
This specific Aprilia RSV1000R Haga Replica is just one of the 60 that were sold in the US, making it incredibly exclusive. With only 224 miles, there’s not much else to say – it’s stock, original, and lovely.
