Aprilia’s SXV550 was an absolute monster that journalists fell in love with as soon as it was released – Visor Down said “only nutters need apply“.

It’s a supermoto with a powerful V-Twin, excellent components, and race-bred pedigree: the bike had already won the S2 World Supermoto Championship as a prototype before it was released to the world. Unfortunately, early (2007) bikes had serious issues with the sealant used in the engine cases. If spotted quickly, you could reseal the motor and everything would be fine. If not, water would get into the oil and you’d be looking at a V-Twin paperweight. Thankfully, Aprilia had sorted it out by 2008, and customers were rewarded with a full-on race bike that was somehow street legal.

The Aprilia was a revolution in the world of supermoto, ditching the traditional single for a beefy V-Twin that popped out a staggering 70 horsepower at 10,500 rpm for a bike that weighed about 280 pounds! MCN said it was “going to change the way the world thinks about supermotos forever.” The trade-off was service intervals, as the race maintenance schedule called for new pistons and a shim check after 60 hours. Regular street riding would increase that number by several factors, however. What else would you expect from a race bike with lights?

This example is VIN: ZD4VSU5068S000282. The seller purchased this motorcycle seven years ago from the original owner.

During his ownership, the seller has covered approximately 5,000 miles. The odometer shows 16,538 miles.

Per the seller: “I have documentation for service from Amauri Nunes, I had him do the routine tune up and fluid changes every year.” The seller states that the speedometer is no longer functional; however, the integral GPS provides an accurate reading and the odometer still works.

6-12 Update: The seller discovered that the speedometer is a known issue with an easy fix – he disconnected and reconnected the battery and now the speedometer works again.
