Simon happy to use RSV.

Reigning 125cc world champion is confident that the Aspar team's decision to use the RSV chassis for the inaugural 2010 Moto2 World Championship is the right one.

Simon and Aspar's Moto2 preparations were thrown into turmoil late last year when Aprilia, whose chassis the team expected to use, suddenly announced it was canning its Moto2 project - just weeks before Aspar expected to test the machinery.

Typically, there was no knee-jerk reaction from team principal Jorge Martinez and Simon revealed that no less than five alternative chassis designs were evaluated before deciding on the Italian-built RSV.

"I'll use the official RSV, which I'm happy about because I tried five different bikes", the official MotoGP website quotes Simon as saying. "After experiences with those we decided on the RSV because they have a lot of technical experience with the 600cc four-stroke engine, and I think it's possible to have a very good year with this machine."

Simon and team-mate Mike di Meglio plan to test with the RSV chassis at Valencia this week.
