I may look into getting shocks with stiffer springs and adjustable damping. With the preload set on high the damping is to light. The suspension on my Kymco S-8 works much better for sport riding but at the cost of a much stiffer ride.
BTW, one thing I do like about the Aprilia is that it has much better cornering clearance than my S-8. I have yet to scrape anything in the curves and I have done quite a few twisty roads on it.
