Hi all

So, I've been browsing the forums again as I'm looking to by a Gen 2. I found one locally on Gumtree, haven't been to see it yet but hopefully will be next week.

I've been studying the (poor res) pictures as closely as I can for clues on condition, mods etc. One area that's slightly concerning me however is the fairing. I've attached a picture. I thought I'd ask you guys who know much more than I do for advice.

Do you think the fairing could be of Chinese origin? I'm maybe just being mega paranoid, but the 'R' decal is missing form the front, and the scoop on the side just doesn't look right comparing to other bikes on Google images. Any clues?

Thanks

Sorry, meant to post the original ad. I'll put the link on. I've checked the mot history and the mileage certainly seems to check out...

Asking £3400, 06 plate with 11k miles.

Cheers man. I'll probably go and have a look and see what it's like in person. Was really wanting a gen 2 tbh. Just prefer the styling. I'm not in a rush as I won't be riding till the spring now so happy to wait for the right bike. Just not many going up here.

That seller's gone to so much trouble to show his bike off at it's best.
Look, he's even included his helmet in the sale...ffs.

There is a nice looking 2004 on EBay this morning. Asking £2600.00 with low miles, maybe worth a look.

Thanks again everyone. I've requested better pictures which I'm waiting on. Slightly annoying when those are the only pictures on the listing! Good time of year to be putting in a low offer.

I agree, get a factory. There's many here (gen 1 and 2), who started with the base model -then wished they got the one with the bells and whistles in the first place -and set about turning their base model into a factory. Easy spending nearly half that again doing so, then the modding bug kicks in as well and empties your wallet and bank account.... (ask us how we know ha ha LOL )

Wait for the right one, at the right money, if you're in no rush.

An ad in the wanted section here and a shout on the Aprilia Performance Facebook page, might bring a few more to light Wink

Don't think you'd get a 2006 Factory for that price, good ones are between 4-5k.
If it wasn't for bad luck I'd have no luck at all

Hiya dude, I'm in Dunfermline and that has been on Gumtree a while now. If I remember right it was a little higher and closer to the £4000 mark when first put up. 

I see your concerns with the body work and as constant points out mud guard does seem different/repainted. The only way to really see though is go and have a look. But seems a little high for a standard bike and as everyone say that is touching the lower side of a factory price wise.

Godd luck Thumbs Up

Hi there. Good advice above. I've had some great deals this time of year on factory machines if you are willing to wait they pop up every so often. Two factory bikes on 05/06 plates have sold recently for 3k and 3.2k which is VERY cheap. For those sorts of prices you would be crazy not to buy the top spec.
I started out with nothing and I've still got most of it left

I clocked that BB Gen 2 as well. Quite a spec, I think he may mean "exceeds 1100cc" (1103 or 1127) when he says it exceeds over 1200cc though?

Lol, put it on my watch list, to see what it goes for Big smile

I think the seller is trying to hide the replacement front fairing at the very minimum

Just over 8 hours to go. Bet the seller is pooing himself a bit, at the current price. I think I would be, or popping a few nervous farts at least LOL

The problem is many buyers shy away from modded bikes, especially engine, unless they have had it done themselves. Still time yet though as the serious bids don't happen until the last half hour. I wouldn't be bidding until the last 10 seconds - or not at all if it had gone too high for me before that!

Strange though for someone who does sound like he knows his bike well that he thinks the wheels are magnesium. Many still do it seems.

Thanks for the link. I did spot that one when browsing eBay the other day.

As stated above I'm a bit put off due to the engine work. I'm sure it'll be just as reliable as the stock units, but you can never be 100% sure. Plus I'm not sure how much that may affect the insurance.

I'm going to see the one in my op this week so will be interesting to see what it's like in the flesh.

Just caught up on all the other replies! Thanks again for all the guidance.

I joined the AP Facebook page recently and have been in touch with Paul Groves about his factory. Definitely right to go for the higher spec if they're going for similar money.

I agree and you would be able to chat to him about the work before you buy the bike. It's just the nature of folk though, many take a very risk averse approach when buying.

Yep, I was watching it. I thought it would go for more at the last minute - a bargain for someone.
