Power and versatility for Aprilias new big engine displacement bike. Technology handling, performance and fascination for a new "light" concept sports twin. APRILIA SL 1000 FALCO R Motorcycling in the pure state. A new concept twin in a light-sports version aimed at all those who identify with the pleasure of a sporty but not extreme ride. The quest for sensations and thrills, where the machine's rationality and versatility guarantee performance, safety, handling, exclusivity, and comfort. The Aprilia SL 1000 FALCO R incorporates all the sports and performance concepts typical of Aprilia motorcycles, but creates a new and effective mix for an easy, enjoyable machine, fascinating in every shape and detail. A bike with loads of character and a powerful, generous heart, capable of delivering the maximum power with incredible ease and control in any situation. In the design and construction of this motorcycle, Aprilia has closely analyzed the positive trend of the market - in particular in Europe - for large engine displacement motorcycles, its constant evolution and the need to offer an ever more diversified range to meet every need and requirement. The constant growth of Aprilia in this segment as well has enabled the company to achieve major objectives, offering products of an extremely high technological and stylistic level. The company is now in a position to present the international market with a complete range. A product such as the SL 1000 FALCO R confirms the creativity of this Italian motorcycle company, able to take on the traditional competitors and set new standards in an ever more crowded and fragmented scenario. The Aprilia SL 1000 FALCO R is the motorcycle for the pure enthusiast who rides for passion and fun, for all those who want to avoid the monotony of multi-lane highways to seek out the side roads, even better if tortuous and in the mountains. A rediscovery of the pure, "primitive", and sincere pleasure of motorcycling. A quest for harmony between machine, rider, and surrounding landscape. The thrill that comes not so much from the lap time, as from the motorcycle's flexibility of use, from "light" medium-range touring. A motorcycle where the riding pleasure is always as great as the performance.
