WARNING - PRECAUTIONS - GENERAL ADVICE

Before starting the engine, read this manual carefully, and in particular the chapters “WARNINGS - PRECAUTIONS - GENERAL ADVICE” and “SAFE DRIVE” see pg. 19.

Your safety and that of those around you depends not only on your skill as a rider, but also on the knowledge you have of your vehicle and riding safely. Therefore it is essential that you avoid using your vehicle on public streets or highways until you have received training from a qualified safety organization such as the Motorcycle Safety Foundation, and are properly trained and licensed.

REPORTING DEFECTS THAT AFFECT SAFETY

If you believe that your vehicle has a defect that could cause an accident or result in injury or death, you should immediately inform the

National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in addition to notifying aprilia. If the NHTSA receives similar complaints, it may open an investigation, and if it finds that a safety defect exists in a group of vehicles, it may order a recall and remedy campaign. However, the NHTSA cannot become involved in individual problems between you, your dealer, or aprilia. To contact the NHTSA, you may either call the Auto Safety Hotlinetoll free at 1-800-424-9393 (or 366-0123 in the Washington, D.C. area) or write to: NHTSA, U.S. Department of Transportation, Washington, D.C. 20590.

The Hotline also provides other information regarding motor vehicle safety.

INFORMATION ON THE NOISE AND EXHAUST GAS EMISSION CONTROL SYSTEM

ORIGIN OF THE EMISSIONS

The combustion process produces carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons. Hydrocarbon control is very important, because under certain conditions they react to exposure to sunlight and produce photochemical smog.

Carbon monoxide does not react in the same way, but is toxic and poisonous. aprilia utilizes “lean” carburetor settings and other systems to reduce the production of carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons.

TAMPERING WARNING

Tampering with the noise control system is prohibited. Federal law prohibits the following acts or causing thereof:

a)The removal or rendering inoperative by any person other than for purposes of maintenance, repair, or replacement, of any device or element of design incorporated into any new vehicle for the purpose of noise control prior to its sale or delivery to the ultimate purchaser or while it is in use, or

b)The use of the vehicle after such device or element of design has been removed or rendered inoperative by any person.
