    I own a2012 rsv4-great bike. Live in Florida/ bought from superbikes out of Houston Texas. Bobby the owner is a class act. Had a warrantee issue with radiator– a recall! Took to unique superbikes- aprillias dealer in miami. Totally unprofessional and a poor representation for such a great bike. There r a lot of great bikes that can be purchased– where people have a much stronger service base ten aprillia. You will never gain respect or penetrate the exotic sport bike market with such poor representation!
