Aprilia showed its revolutionary bet to stand up to Ducati in MotoGP


In a performance in the pitlane of the Lusail circuit that lasted a quarter of an hour, the Aprilia Racing has fulfilled his promise to show his RS-GP version 2024 that the revolution is not so much in the decoration, even if the violet color gains prominence over the traditional black and red, but in the aerodynamics inspired by F1 that they show in all their splendor.

Before connecting, they broadcast another of the shocking ‘made in’ Aprilia Racing fiction shorts with the RS-GP24 escaping from the Noale factory after being assembled by the engineers, it steps on the moon to dance with Aleix Espargaró, Maverick Viales and Lorenzo Savadori.

Aleix Espargaro will start his 8th season with Noale and more than deserved stripes of being his ‘Il Capitano’ with three victories contributed in the last two campaigns: “The project has grown a lot, you can’t imagine how far the we arrived. Come. I’m very proud to still be here. I think I have the strongest human team since I came eight years ago, so we’re ready to fight.”

“The growth we have shown in previous seasons is incredible. But in 2024 we have to take another step forward, last year we lacked the consistency to fight until the end but we still proved to be a tough rival for everyone. It won’t be easy because “Although it seems impossible, the level of MotoGP has risen even further. I feel ready, physically and mentally, and I believe in the work of the Aprilias.”

After the first look “It’s nice, as you can see it’s a very racing livery. The first test is good, quite positive. Obviously, aerodynamics changes the way you ride a bike, we have to do more test before the first race , but looks promising.

“The plan is to go as fast as possible. The competition will be very high, but that is why we are here, to fight with the best in the world. We can say that Aprilia is at the best moment in its history. , must let’s try to prove it and win more races in the early part of the season,” concluded ‘Il Capitano’.

Maverick Vinales They insisted on the theme “We are working a lot with Aprilia to transform this bike into an incredible bike. Every time we go out on the track, we improve and improve. That is good news. I trained a lot this winter. I hope to bring of incredible results in the team”.

If Aleix was among the best in the Sepang test, Maverick Viñales was more ‘covered’, making sure that “we took it very quietly, trying to get an idea of ​​what was going well or not, because of a test it’s always complicated but we still continued that silence because we know we have two more days we’re doing the simple things to move forward and that’s the objective I know if I can do it. in front from the first corner I can I want to give a good performance, so of course that’s my goal.

With former Sky Italia pit reporter Antonio Boselli, now the new head of communications for the Piaggio Group, he acted as a common thread that introduced Massimo Rivola. is highly motivated, otherwise we wouldn’t be here.

“We want to be the protagonist in MotoGP and we have all the credentials for it: four top-level riders, a brave racing department with the ability to innovate, and that bit of Italian pride that never hurts racing”

“In 2024, we will raise the level even further, as Miguel Oliveira will start the season with an RS-GP with the same specifications as the factory bikes and Raúl Fernández will receive it later. An important effort for the department of competition but also a sample of the evolution of this project.”

Albesian Romanthe technical director, recognized that “the RS-GP is a mature project, true to the philosophy of Aprilia, which we tried to improve in all aspects. The differences are great compared to the previous RS-GP, there is a different concept On the front wing, the aerodynamic part is the most noticeable part of the evolution. At the back, we think a lot and it’s a completely new concept. The chassis is also new, the swingarm, many transmission parts, electronics … “many parts what’s new about this bike.”

“The aerodynamic care is perhaps the most obvious, we have introduced some specific innovative concepts to improve the load and penetration characteristics. But every detail has been analyzed, as is mandatory in a championship that has carried out technological research at levels never seen before,” stood out.

Paolo Bonorathe team manager of the official team, pointed out that “the winter break is too short for us and very demanding for us with six 2024 bikes for Aleix, Maverick and Miguel (Oliveira) and some time is Raúl (Fernández will also have two “Trackhouse is not just a partner, it is a great opportunity for both teams to analyze more data together and do better than last year.”
