Quick newbie question

Recommended Posts

Hi guys! Can anyone confirm whether this is actually the 2018 model? (LINK) My friend says its not but the sales representative claims that it is. I've been burned before and I want to take all precautions before going any further with this dealer.
Thanks and happy riding!

Frame number.

ZD4 is the european code for aprillia. The next 3 digits are the model , ie RS4.  The next 3 digits signify special extras ( like paints or special models). The tenth digit is then the year of manufacture. For you , this would be an 8 (18?).The next 6 digits are the unique code for your bike.  

For example - ZD4RS40006000001. This would be the first standard RS4 made in 2006.  Hope that helps.

Always ask a dealer or seller for the actual date of manufacture.  This is a good way of ensuring they are on the level - and possibly have paperwork to go with the bike , or at least some kind of reference (and class!).
