strange from Aprilia...
also they didn't turn up at the sydney moto show this WE...only major manufacturer missing...was looking forward to checking out the new RSV4
BMW had their new RR there which looks great - was expecting a larger bike actually

Face it, an Aprilia with a Honda engine is a bit strange and not good advertisement for the factory. They are more than capable of building their own engines and I hope they return to MotoGP.
If only we could have that fabulous Apriilia Cube triple back, dog of a bike but what a sound! :) Vroooaaaaarrrrrrbbllleblblblblbbllllsplutter..splutter!! :) :p

Very Unproffessional and too late.
Being as is the Most Expensive For 100k€ each single frame Aprillia is However Behind all the others with NO testing yet.Their customers should decide to switch to any other Brand.
Probably theyre not willing to face a brand new non-monopolistic scenaryo.

The difference is that Rotax and Cosworth don't produce bikes.
Honda is a main competitor of Aprilia in the motorcycle market.
So yes, it is strange, I'm sure they would prefer to be allowed to run their own engine instead of this one.
