I guess the only thingh that Espargaro needs this time is for Aprilia to put there name rigth there Fully Factory, no bullsht of ART, Aprilia is the name and we whant a Top Motogp machine again..! for me is the best manufacter from Italy, Ducati is doing really bad and Motogp go to better days again.. This could be a good chance for Aprilia to Fight agains Japan and rival Ducati..

Agree will all above comments! Also very agree that Aprilia to go full factory next year. It's time to do something much bigger & of greater impact. Go on, add further value to this well established brand, re-branding itself as necessary. Changes are inevitable. Establish further via full factory support. Ya easier said than done, but good to have some strategies & goals as the company move forward.

On the other hand, Aleix is well qualified & deserved of a better machine. Someone has got to let him try out a higher spec machine. I think he is more than well deserved of the Tech3 bike. :)

Ya challenging, but Keep Fighting, Aleix!

Aprillia engines are fast in WSBK but to compete with Honda and Yamaha in GP would need to pump out more power. With the Factory Engine Allocation I don't know if they'd get through a season without having to start from pit lane.

@Insidejob
cannot agree more with you regarding the need for more power. If the Aprilia engine is equipped with a pneumatic valve and configured to add 30-50 more HP, then the Aprilia would surely be competitive against Honda or Yamaha. I'm willing to bet that should the Aprilia have another 20 HP that it would consistently destroy any of the Ducati factory bikes.

The only way Aleix Espargaro can move to NGM is if he can get rid of his 2013/2014 contract with his current team. He deserves a decent bike, but his contract could play parts in the NGM deal, there are more riders possible for the NGM seat at the moment.

Didn't Yamaha say they could serve up to four riders with engines, apart from the factory team and Tech 3? If there is a team deserving better equipment, then it is Aspar.
