Anyone know what a V990RO engine is from?

I've seen one for sale, it's a gen 2 NG engine but I can't seem to find any reference to it. I asked on the AF1 website but had no response as of yet.

Sorry - I don't know.
I'd be asking Griff at Aprilia Performance.

OK .... tonight I was chatting with Griff and mentioned this to him.

He hasn't heard of it either.

Are we sure it's not a typo or the RO being shorthand for "Rotax".

Do you have any links, pics or further info?

It's gone now but...

Hopefully that'll work rather than me trying to post screenshots!

Had a reply from Griff - He says the markings have been changed (I wondered this too) and looks very dodgy.

Barge-pole not long enough to touch it.

Cheers for the response and taking the time to ask Griff.

It did look a bit odd but the fact it was being offered with two sets of 57mm throttle bodies was a bit enticing. If I hadn't just bought some I would have been even more tempted!

Still tempted by an engine swap to a gen 2 though.......
