She's home

Picked up the bike today from the Aprilia dealership. Everything looks/sounds good with the new motor and they made good on their promise to give us a free A-stars leather riding jacket.. which actually fits pretty well surprisingly. The process was pretty smooth. The service manager at Atlanta Motor World even picked up my bike personally (2 hr drive). They also installed some frame sliders I provided at no cost to me

Cool . Now go ride it and report back as to whether the replacement motor makes the same power that the original, "grenade" motor did, or if it's been quietly de-tuned for reliability/longevity's sake.

Sorry to disappoint you Pimmie, but I don't think they offered a complimentary WSBK "Alitalia" paint job/decal kit along with the motor swap.

Although, Khan's bike is (already) white...hmmm...
