The sun also shines for the 250cc qualifying practice defining the Italian GP starting grid. Riders extensively tested their bikes’ set-ups for dry conditions, which are also foreseen for tomorrow’s race. Aprilia performed brilliantly placing two RSAs in the first two positions ad six bikes in the first ten. Hector Barbera, on his RSA of the Toth team, got the pole with the time of 1’52”675, setting the new record of the Tuscan circuit. The Valencian rider proved to be very fast these two (...)

Here’s a lesson that all of us could take: it’s the rider not the bike that makes the difference and you can have a blast on a mid-size motorcycle too. To convince you, here’s a video where a Kawasaki ZX-R ...400 competes against three other bikes but the weird thing is that the 400cc is far from its place in this pile of cubic centimeters and watts.

Before you watch this video I must remind you that the 400cc has a maximum power output around 57HP while the other three at least three times more.

Vanjey-design visualizes the road version of the RSV 4 in the best way we’ve seen so far, but the concept is surrounded by mystery so far. It is strongly recommended that you leave your opinion in order to help us to see it unveiled and ready for a test run. Although it is premature to talk about such thing now, you have to admit that it looks inviting.

A few days ago, the new Aprilia Dorsoduro 750 was introduced to the international press for a first ride contact.

This unique, elite bike applies all of Aprilia’s vast racing experience to just one mission: pure riding enjoyment. 92 HP and exclusive Tri-Map ride-by-wire technology mean that the lightweight and powerful SMV 750 Dorsoduro can satisfy even the most experienced riders in search of a state-of-the-art bike.

Just like the picture shows, it is not always recommended to go strong before a corner and this rider has learned its lesson in the bad way. This also shows that the protective tire wall is sometimes useless or even worst as it is built for cars, not for the trouble getting two wheels of this crashed racing Aprilia RS 125. Let’s just hope that behind those tires there was a soft cushion on which landing in your head would be a bit less painful (like that’s a consolation).

It is certainly no easy matter to take the lead in a class as fiercely competitive as the middleweight naked class. A class where the battle is not just about technology and performance, but also design, component rationality and riding ease and pleasure, elements which are not always compatible and are particularly demanding for designers and engineers. Aprilia accepted this challenge and addressed it by applying its own successful philosophy to a completely new design, destined to set (...)

The 250cc Spanish GP was absolutely breathtaking. The wide audience on the hills of Jerez de la Frontera was incredulous up until the end, when the race turned out in the most unthinkable way. Aprilia performed brilliantly, but has to be contented with the second step of the podium. The race began quite monotonously with Bautista starting well from the pole followed by a tiny group of riders. Right from the second lap he managed to outdistance the others together with Simoncelli who, by (...)

After its opening in Qatar, the championship comes back to Europe with the Spanish GP of Jerez de la Frontera. The 125cc class opens the event with the first qualifying practice. Thanks to the great weather conditions, the bikes performed in a brilliant and balanced way, with the first sixteen riders in the span of just a second. Nico Terol, on his RS of the Jack & Jones WRB team, got the provisional pole with the time of 1’48”078. The young Spaniard proved to be extremely fast since (...)

It is a profoundly redesigned bike that operates around a powerful 77° V twin engine. The main difference in respect to the previous version is a more rigid yet lighter frame, including upright anterior latticework with a different diameter and material. The (...)
