Click here for an instaVIN Motorcycle History Report on this 2003 Aprilia RSV Mille R Haga Replica.

Known by many as the “Samurai of Slide” or “Nitro Nori”, Noriyuki Haga was a fan favorite who came depressingly close to winning a World Superbike championship several times – he was runner-up in 2000, 2007, & 2009 and finished third in 2004, 2005, 2006, & 2008 seasons. He was also the subject of one of the greatest motorcycle photographs of all time:

Today, we’re focused on the 2002 season, when Haga placed 4th overall in WSBK on the Aprilia RSV Mille. His teammate that year was none other than Colin Edwards, the Texas Tornado. Colin would go on to win the WSBK championship that year, but it was Haga that Aprilia commemorated with a limited production run of the RSV Mille R. Don’t worry, Edwards would get a replica of his own the following year.

Just 300 Haga Replicas were built for the 2003 model year, 60 of which were sold in the US. Modifications from the standard Mille R included the paint job that emulated Haga’s WSBK racer, a blue Ergal triple clamp with the production number and Haga’s signature, blue OZ wheels, dual titanium Akrapovic exhausts, and EPROM fuel injection that was mapped for the Akras. This yielded a 10 horsepower bump and 6.6 pound weight reduction from the already impressive specs of the Mille R, which came with a 128 horsepower/73 lb-ft 998cc V-Twin, Brembo brakes, Ohlins suspension/steering dampers, and some carbon fiber bodywork.

This excellent example came to us from an Aprilia fan in Florida. His collection included several special RSVs, such as a Bol D’Or (which we have already sold) and a RSV Mille R Edwards replica. This was the nicest of his beautiful Apes, and we’re excited to make it available to you.

This is #111 of 300, and it’s staggeringly clean considering the mileage figure on the odometer of 9,293. We had to triple check the number because it’s one of the cleaner Hagas we’ve ever seen. In addition, it comes with a headlight cover that has been signed by Haga himself! Aftermarket upgrades include CRG levers and Motovation axle sliders front and rear.

Nearly every Mille R suffers from clear coat failure and sticker failing, but this bike has held up well. There’s some minor scratches and signs of use, so you don’t have to be afraid of putting some more miles on it. We hope the next owner rides it plenty, because this Aprilia sounds tremendous!
