What is the sound of one piston slapping?
What is the sound of one piston slapping?

Thought I’d share this great film, some no BS knee to the ground riding on the roads, in France back in 1998. Includes many wheelies, near misses, crashes and a bit of swearing :) All on the greatest V-Twins money could buy back then: a Ducati 996SPS, Aprilia RSV Mille and Bimota SB8R.


I believe this was released on VHS by Fast Bike Magazine back in the day. Top stuff it is, but legal? Err....

Being an Aprilia man myself currently with Angelina (my 2015 Shiver 750), its funny that the OEM levers on the RSV Mille is exactly the same as my own bike. If I was to use my head today I’d buy the RSV Mille, but as sunday bikes I’d go for the SB8R or 996SPS.
