My uncle was at the local Kawa/Aprilia dealership and he saw a brand new Aprilia marked half off so it was 7grand. Unfortuanetly he knows nothing about the company or its bikes so he cant tell me what kind it is. I am going to drive down there and check it out for myself since I am looking to get a bike. Last I heard Aprilia was going under and needed money to stay afloat, my question is did they get the money, are they going under, and would you buy one of their bikes knowing the company could flounder?

Aprilia will not flounder, they just received some financial backing, so it appears they will be stable. If you're interested you can look up what their financial situation on motorcycledaily.com or roadracingworld.com

Their "big" bikes aren't in trouble, the ones that were almost dropped were the scooters.

yeah, i saw them at ken's. he had like 3 RSV 1000's and 2 or 3 '03 RSV mille's and a few Tuonos. if he'd come off the price by a few thousand i'd buy one now. just can't afford a new bike now. dumb ass me spent $15,000 on a new cage instead.
