Aprilia RST1000 Futura Overview 

If you’re in the market for a sports tourer then take a look at the Aprilia RST1000 Futura. Launched back in 2000, Aprilia decided to take a different approach to creating the ideal sports tourer by using elements of their different models to create the RST1000 Futura.

There’s lots of extras with the RST10000 Futura including LCD clock, fuel gauge and more, underseat exhaust, factory fitted luggage and a single-sided swinger. Not forgetting the cosmetic update back in 2003 with a new two-twon paint job added and the seat slightly adjusted for extra comfort. There’s not been any recalls or big issues with the RST1000 Futura so you can rely on this model.

You can bag quite the bargain with the Aprilia RST1000 Futura nowadays if you’re opting to buy secondhand, with prices starting from £2,000.

Comfort
It has the most comfortable seat I have ever ridden on. I can ride much longer than the tank range now.
Ride Quality
It's a sports bike that can tour or a touring bike that handles like a sports bike.
Build Quality & Reliability
Great engine, Italian electrics... need I say more?
Engine Rating
Great low down torque. Not as powerful as modern bikes but more than enough to keep up with most.
Brake Rating
Good brakes. Full stop
Running Cost
If you have a heavy right hand you are going visit the pumps a lot. Parts are expensive and can take a long time to arrive. Second hand parts are getting scarce.
Overall
Pros CommentsFor the money you will pay for a second hand one, it's amazing value but beware you will need a toolkit. It's definately worth a look, unless you are not at all handy with a spanner. There are amazing forums with a huge fan base which have probably all experienced any problems you may have. The engines are bullet proof but sadly the electrics not!
Cons CommentsIt could do with a bit more storage. For a touring bike there is a distinct lack of storage. Even under the seat!
