Top Speed 2019 Aprilia Buying Guide
Aprilia is an Italian manufacturer mainly in top-end racing machines and streetbikes, though it does have limited scooter range to round out its lineup. It falls under the same Piaggio & C. SpA umbrella as does famed builder Moto Guzzi, but unlike it’s sister company, Aprilia completely shuns the standard body-style machines and focuses on performance. In so doing, it serves as the racebike division for the Piaggio conglomerate. The marque is heavily involved in the MotoGP circuit, and at the time of this writing is listed as 6th in the world manufacturer’s standings.

Top Naked Streetfighter Motorcycles
At one point in history, all motorbikes were naked, but that all changed as the 1980s came around. Putting an aerodynamic fairing on was a good way of getting more performance without the costly development of the engine. Fast forward to the 2000s, and manufacturers are busy taking the fairings off their superbikes to create naked streetfighter models, which are much more practical and suitable for everyday use, while being just as dynamically impressive. This is our list of the top ten naked streetfighters available in 2022.

Lowering the asking price brings a lot more bikes into the equation and most of them are brilliantly user-friendly while still offering all the thrills you could wish for. Talking about sports bikes is quite difficult because what exactly is a sports bike? Is it a bike with a fairing or can a naked bike be a sports bike also?

Since the dawn of motorcycling, speed has been the only obsession worth talking about and the top speeds of production motorcycles have climbed steadily over the decades.

Aprilia’s New Baby Streetfighter Looks Like A Shrunk Down Tuono V4
In the motorcycling industry, it’s sort of an unsaid rule to follow up a successful faired sportbike with an equally bonkers but more versatile streetfighter, and we’ve seen all leading manufacturers do this from time to time. The latest one to do so is Aprilia, who has taken the wraps off the new GPR250S naked motorcycle, based on the fully-faired GPR250R sold in Asian markets.
Gold & Bold: ‘07 Aprilia RSV 1000 R Factory Is One Stunner That You Can Take Home
Aprilia sportbikes have been synonymous with V-4 engines for quite a long time. However, few know that the Italian giant first tried its luck with the good ol’ V-twin setup, birthing two superbikes, namely the RSV Mille and its successor, the RSV 1000 R.

Settling The Inline-4 vs V4 Debate: 2019 Aprilia RSV4 1100 & 2019 BMW S 1000 RR Fight It Out In A Straight Line
Liter-class bikes mostly comprise two engine configurations, either four-cylinders stacked in a single line i.e. inline-four, or four-cylinders stacked in a way that they create a ‘V’ shape i.e. V4.
There’s always been a huge argument between fanboys of either configuration suggesting their favorite one is better.

Here’s how it went.
Drag Race: Three Sports Tourer Motorcycles Try To Take Down A 200+HP Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R
With each passing day, motorcycle manufacturers are pushing the envelope of peak power that you can churn out from an engine. As a result, both sportbikes and sports tourers are getting more powerful and faster, to the extent that the gap between these two categories has shrunk.
This raises a very valid question - Can a modern-day sports tourer motorcycle keep up with (let alone beat) a modern-day liter-class sportbike? I’m sure this is a question, that many people want to know the answer to.
Lucky for us, Revzilla had the same idea, owing to which they brought along three leading sports tourer bikes - the BMW S 1000 XR, Kawasaki Ninja 1000 SX, and Aprilia Tuono V4 - to a drag strip, pitting them against a Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R. Here’s how it went down.
