Suzuki DR600 & Aprilia Pegaso 650con
A dozen years ago, Aprilia's first large-capacity road bike, the Pegaso , went on sale. The single-cylinder machine was developed in conjunction with BMW's F, which not only shared some components but was also built at Aprilia's factory at Noale, near Venice. Both machines were trail bikes with such a strong road bias that the majority of owners never took their machines near the dirt, instead using them for the usual cross-section of roadgoing duties, from gentle touring to commuting. It was the Pegaso that distinguished itself as class leader, partly through superior performance and partly because it was simply more fun to ride. Aprilia went on to produce many more, mostly successful road bikes, including the excellent RSV Mille V-twin superbike, but the company suffered badly from a collapsed scooter market and an expensive MotoGP race programme. Administrators were called in and earlier this year the Aprilia Group was taken over by Piaggio.

When the original Pegaso was introduced it was the most sophisticated single-cylinder production bike available. That was a full 10 years ago, and Things don't move so fast in this class, largely because the motivation, in the form of big showroom sales, isn't there. These bikes sell quite consistently but only in relatively small numbers. The reason for that comes down to the limitations of single-cylinder engines, which compared with their multi-pot counterparts are slow, vibratory, difficult to start and with narrow powerbands.
