This is the proposed new Aprilia Tuareg that may be making it's first appearance at the Milan show.

Looks lovely, steel & aluminium frame, with Shiver mechs, and its 750 motor, like a modern day Africa Twin?

Which begs me to ask, that if a tiny company like Aprilia can see a market for this kind of bike, why can't Honda... Discuss?

I suspect Honda see it as a market that is too small to be worth developing a bike from scratch (they'd have to now...) and so it makes a nice niche in the market for Aprilia to tempt some customers, such as the likes of us....

I quite liked my 650 Peg.
Was my first big bike and I passed my test on it.

Never had much trouble with it (other than blowing the head gasket) I'd still have it now if it hadn't been nicked....
