V5 Registration Document: Present Date of 1st Registration: 01/03/2001
Welcome to the reluctant sale of my 2001 Aprilia RSV 1000 Mille track and race bike.  I have owned this bike for 12 months, though sadly surgery means I have to say farewell to the track.  The Mille handles brilliantly and I've had great fun with this forgiving frame, potent two-cylinder engine and powerful brakes.  She started life as a road bike and was converted for the track about 3 years ago by the previous owner, with who I ride. The modifications have been added thoughtfully and carefully to bring it beyond the spec of most other RSV/RSVR's that you will find. She's done about twenty track days and three race entries, including leading the Thunderbikes at Cadwell last season.  

This is a 2001 bike, with the V5 present, and currently registered SORN.  The upgrades to an already high standard are numerous and include:
  • Ohlins rear shock and adjuster
  • Upgraded front forks
  • Blue Oz wheels with Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa V2's
  • EBC Pro-Lite front discs
  • Renthal sprockets front and rear (520)
  • Tsubaki Sigma X ring gold chain (520)
  • Tigcraft Full Titanium Race Exhaust System (very rare), running 101db with baffle
  • Upgraded EPROM ECU chip to suit full system
  • 57mm wide body fuel injector
  • Venhill Quick Action Throttle
  • SES Clip Ons with Renthal grips
  • Custom rearsets with race shift
  • Steering damper
  • Full race bodywork (pictured). Includes some minor repairs, though it is solid and intact. Spare bodywork is available (see below).
  • Double Bubble screen
  • EVO style airbox with Plastic RSVR fuel tank
  • Race fuel cap
  • K&N air filter
  • Iridium spark plugs
  • Brembo 19/20 Radial master cylinder
  • R&G crash protectors on frame and front forks
  • Lithium ion Racing Battery (much better cranking performance on a big V twin)
  • Standard pneumatic Mille clutch, which is partway toward a slipper clutch for controlled downshifting
  • Barnett Heavy Duty Racing Clutch
In addition to the bike itself, there are numerous spares which will be useful to the new owner, some of which are pictured:
  • Standard Mille wheels, including discs, fitted with Bridgestone wet weather tyres in excellent condition
  • Set of plastics painted in Aprilia red/silver race colours (no seat hump)
  • Front forks
  • Exhaust
  • Spare front and rear sprockets of different sizes for different circuits
  • Assorted levers, clip ons, rearset parts, footpegs
  • Original throttle body 
  • Power Commander PC3 USB
  • Service manual
  • Other assorted service items, filters etc
This bike is in very good condition and has been extremely well upgraded and maintained by two mechanics, one of whom now works in the BSB paddock.  The bike starts, runs and rides absolutely faultlessly and I know that the new owner will most definitely be delighted.  She has all the benefits of the trusty RSV/RSVR chassis with the addition of extra upgrades that greatly improve power, handling, braking and weight saving. 

In very good condition, with excellent high spec parts and many spares.  100% ready for Track Days or Racing immediately as the new season is almost upon us.  

The auction start price is very reasonable for this bike and spares, though sensible offers are welcome.  Viewers are welcome in Tonbridge, Kent, and delivery is possible by arrangement. 
Any questions, please ask. Good luck with your bid.

Remarks added on 6 March:
Thank you watchers for the many questions on the Mille.  I don't remember having so much interest in many years of eBay listing.  To try and respond enquiries both sensible and ridiculous:

Pictures - I've added more images as requested to the eBay limit of 12. Please ask if there is anything specific you require.
Exhaust - is 80mm diameter at the join between tail pipe and collector pipe.
Breaking the bike - the components are not for sale separately. I will not remove pieces of the bike to sell individually.  Those familiar with performance bikes and track time know the value of the additional components.
Servicing - the bike was serviced after every other outing, or after the occasional race weekend. This meant oil/filter change, fluid check/top up. At the end of the year, or as the occasions requires, other service components were replaced.  The radiator is presently drained to prevent frost damage.
Delivery - sorry, I won't "Bring the bike to Derby for you to look at".
Sensible offers - £1,800 is not close. Sorry.
Collection - Monday 10th is preferable, or the following weekend 15/16 March.

We keep your max bid amount a secret from the seller and other bidders.
Max bidding example:
If a current bid is £20 and your max bid is £30, we bid £21 for you.
If no one else bids, you win and pay £21.
However, if someone else places a bid for £35, you will be out bid and the new highest bid on the auction will be £31. You will need to increase your max bid to more than £35 to be the highest bidder.
