I expected to see some custom bike that echoed the space shuttle in looks, not an ad.

"Aprilia USA pays tribute to the Space Shuttle" would be more appropriately titled "Aprilia shamelessly uses the Space Shuttle's last flight for self promotion"

Hey I thought it was pretty good. If you want a space shuttle look alike custom bike... just start watching repeats of American Chopper, it's been done already.

Not what I 'wanted', didn't want anything, just not what I expected based on the title of the video. The video itself is kind of cool, but it sure as hell isn't a tribute to the space shuttle, it's an ad.

yeah... kept waiting for them to show a bike that was coloured schemed & paterned after the shuttle or something like "This is what we've done, and it pales to what you've done."

Aprilla showing off their specs & etc, then the shuttle's spec. "This is what we've(Aprilla) done, and it pales to what you've(NASA) done.."

It would have been nice if that was what they had done with the commercial, rather than make an add trying to capitolize on the end of an era.

Talk about the pesimists vs the optomists

I thought the ad was more to thank the shuttle program for all the advances they have made, yes it was an end to an era to which many have capitolized.
