Social scene

line of bikesThere’s a thriving community of Aprilia Futura owners worldwide, but it’s easiest to find other owners online.

Aprilia Futura – Forums

Warning!

These links have not been tested in a while so I can’t guarantee they work!

There isn’t a Futura owners’ club as such – at least not in the UK – but there are many online communities for owners.

The daddy of them all is the AF1 Futura forum, where you’ll find owners from all over the world offering advice and arranging meets. It’s free to join and members are helpful and polite. Mostly.

There’s also a Futura-based mailing list on Yahoo groups. Many of its members are also on the AF1 forum.

There’s also a Futura section on Aprilia Ridersite , a British site.

The Futura has a devoted following in France, and French owners have their own site and forum devoted to the bike, RST1000.info . It also has an English language section on its forum.

There’s an Italian Futura Forum and the the Italians also started the I love Aprilia RST1000 Futura group on Facebook.

Other Aprilia-related forums

In the UK, there are a few Futura owners to be found on the Club Aprilia forum, though you have to be a member to post there. The club has a section of the forum devoted to Futuras, Caponords and Falcos but the AF1 forum is far busier.

Futura and Aprilia-related websites

Wolfie’s Futura site came back on line in April 09 after disappearing for several months. It doesn’t get updated these days but there’s some useful stuff on there.

RST1000.info is a French language website

Divers modifications is a mini site with info on modifications including English versions, while Befbever’s site has manuals and tech info, pictures and videos in the Futura folder.

There’s also an Italian Futura specifications site

Ken’s Falco site is a mine of information on the SL1000, which means there’s some useful how-to’s for Futura servicing, including oil changes and valve checks.

Todd’s Capo site is also useful since the Caponord and Futura also share a lot of parts.
