I think that the marketing guys made a gaff. The late-teens/early-twenties set are primarily interested in crotch rockets and garish paint. Naked bikes appeal to the 35-and-uppers; these buyers prefer low-key paint jobs in order to avoid too much attention from Officer Friendly. Unfortunately, that pictured paint scheme will scare away a lot of prospective buyers (shallow, yes, but we do live in a material world). Aprilia loses out... and so do a lot of real motorcyclists. So, be smart Aprilia, and make sure some version of 'magnet grey' is still offered.
