=9. RSV-1000R: 4 out of 5

With looks and performance akin to a kick in the pods, Aprilia's RSV-1000R proved that not every Italian sportsbike had to be a blood-red, 90° V-twin from Bologna. It piles out a claimed 128hp and handles too, thanks to competent all-singing Ohlins suspension. Offers more oomph and comfort than a Ducati 916 - an everyman’s exotica, if you will.

=9. RS50: 4 out of 5

A modern Fizzie? Not for the mechanically ignorant, but a proper motorbike nevertheless. The RS50 was the first production 50cc motorcycle to be equipped with a die-cast aluminium frame that boasts light weight and strength. It has real racing heritage and is guaranteed to get you a frenchie at the school gates. Probably.

8. SL1000 Falco: 4.05 out of 5

The Falco is one of those classic forgotten about bikes - a shame as it actually has a fair sized fan base in the UK. It uses a de-tuned RSV-R lump housed in a fairly sporty chassis and has a decent half-fairing for weather protection. Bad points? Some will say the package is a tad utilitarian next to the Mille.

7. Shiver SL750: 4.06 out of 5

The SL750 used an all-new 749.9cc 90-degree V-twin engine that put out an adequate 94hp with strong mid-range pull, perfect for road use. It cost £5,600 at its launch in 2007 and you got plenty for your money, including four-piston Brembo brakes, fly-by-wire throttle and a dash full of information.

6. RS125: 4.08 out of 5

If you want a bike to tickle your senses then it's a two-stroke every time. And for the last 18 years RS125s have stimulated over 82,000 teenagers the world over. Strong brakes, razor sharp handling and a revvy 28hp engine when derestricted. Just the tool for teens to mis-spend their youth on and learn how to be a GP star.

5. RSV Mille 1000: 4.19 out of 5

In 1998 Aprilia launched the fast and affordable RSV Mille. Whilst the V-twin has handed over its flagship status to the new RSV4, it doesn’t make the Mille any less of a gem. The fuelling is beautifully smooth and the gearbox shifts slickly. You can almost forgive the woefully underpowered engine (115hp is typical) when you feel the linear power delivery. The grunt is there almost regardless of gear choice, shoving the big bike forward with a strong, insistent surge that’s the sensible side of silly.

4. Tuono Fighter (03-08): 4.21 out of 5

The Tuono Fighter is, in some respects, the affordable, naked version of the RSV Mille R. The 126hp 60-degree V-twin engine made it the most powerful in its class and it handled well too, thanks to adjustable 43mm Showa forks and a fully adjustable rear shock. A real sportsbike without the fairing.

3. ETV1000 Caponord: 4.37 out of 5

Battered senseless with the ugly-stick but a rapid and capable bike, the Capo has plenty of plus points. You get a reliable, powerful V-twin engine, nimble handling and effective brakes. Seat height is incredibly low for a big trailie, and an even lower version was available as an option, suitable for shorter riders.

2. Tuono Fighter R: 4.38 out of 5

Once the wheelies are over, the Fighter R turns into a full-on sportsbike. High, rear-set pegs complete the effect and it all works really well in the turns; there’s one rule however: you need to be committed. Just cruise along and the suspension feels too stiff and the tyres skit around. You need to be braking hard, accelerating hard and muscling it about. It’s a proper motorbike that does do everything. Just keep your wits about you when you ride it.

1. Tuono V4R: 4.39 out of 5

The new Tuono V4R has had multiple revisions for 2014 and now comes fitted with ABS as standard. The V4 engine has a soundtrack like no other, going from an ominous crackling rumble at idle to a full-on intoxicating symphony of raucous bellowing towards its 12,300rpm redline. Despite its hooligan reputation the V4 Tuono is much more enjoyable with both wheels on the ground. The Aprilia makes hard work of wheelies and skids and implores you to set faster lap times instead of larking around. It offers one of the most sophisticated electronic packages around matched to one of the most exciting engines you’ll find in a production bike.
