BACK to basics. That seems to be the mantra in motorcycling at the moment, from 'yard built' cafe racers to unashamedly gadget-free budget bikes.

It seems that a growing core of bikers are searching for that honest motorcycling experience, from an era where you could tweak the throttle and trace the tightening cables through the bike. Old-school. Just you and the bike. No gizmos, no gadgets.

If you follow this back to basics mantra, well, you'll hate Aprilia's RSV4 RF.
