MotoGP France: Development continues for Aprilia

“We will definitely be able to take another important step forward, continuing development leading up to the Italian Grand Prix” – Fausto Gresini.
Development of the new Aprilia RS-GP MotoGP machine continued during a private test, alongside Ducati, at Mugello this week.

“On Monday at Mugello we completed a few important electronics tests with Bautista and Bradl in terms of power output, whereas on Tuesday and Wednesday the tests continued with Mike di Meglio and the Aprilia test team,” explained Aprilia racing manager Romano Albesiano.

“At Le Mans there will once again be aerodynamic changes, engine performance improvements and some further fine-tuning on the electronics package that we will be trying out on the French track. We are coming from a race at Jerez where the RS-GP showed some important signs of competitiveness and we aim to continue the positive trend.”

Team manager Fausto Gresini added that chassis updates will also be available.

“At Le Mans we'll continue testing the chassis upgrades that already gave us positive indications in Spain with improvements in terms of stability and the way the bike performs coming out of corners,” he said. “We will definitely be able to take another important step forward, continuing development leading up to the Italian Grand Prix at Mugello, which is a very important found for us.”

Aprilia, which ran winglets for the first time in public at Jerez, have scored points in each race so far this season, with Bradl leading the way with 13th in the world championship.
