aprilia updates for offroad

the mxv mini-twin get's map switch and loses weight of a starter in favor of classic kickstart. normally map switches are gimmicky, but this was a bike that needed one. unlike a single, kickstarting this when hot should be cake. c'mon ama make 'em legal. offroader's rejoice...

It's a race motor, and the demands for upkeep and maintenance intervals don't discredit that.

Since 08 they've been MUCH more reliable and longer intervals for service, but it's not a motor you can just forget about in order to keep at peak performance.

Ask any rider with a modern motocross bike what maintenance is like. if you use them the way they are intended to be used, they want parts.
