Aprilia’s 2019 Lineup Explained

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

Stripped of bodywork and power, can these naked streetfighter bikes be as much fun as out-and-out sports bikes? Here’s a list of top 10 naked streetfighters

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.

This is our list of the top ten naked streetfighters available in 2022.

Top 10 Sports Bikes Under $15,000 in 2022

There are a lot of sports motorcycles for not a lot of money just waiting to be ridden

Not all of us can afford high-end sports bikes but, equally importantly, not many of us could ride them properly, either. 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? For the purpose of this list, we’re assuming the latter, just to make you think a bit.

More powerful and affordable than the KTM 200 Duke

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.

Here’s a chance to get your hand’s on Aprilia’s last-known V-twin flagship superbike

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.

Thanks to Aprilia now specializing in V4 engines, these two bikes are essentially a piece of rich history and if you’re looking for the latter, Iconic Motorbike Auctions has got you covered.

Settling The Inline-4 vs V4 Debate: 2019 Aprilia RSV4 1100 & 2019 BMW S 1000 RR Fight It Out In A Straight Line

Team inline-four or team V4 - Which team are you putting your money on?

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. But talking only gets you so far, so the folks at 44Teeth took matters into their own hands and took a ‘19 Aprilia RSV4 1100 and a ‘19 BMW S 1000 RR to a drag strip to find out which one’s faster. Here’s how it went.

Drag Race: Three Sports Tourer Motorcycles Try To Take Down A 200+HP Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R

Will the BMW S 1000 XR, Kawasaki Ninja 1000 SX or Aprilia Tuono V4 succeed in beating Kawasaki’s flagship liter-class bike? Let’s find out

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.
