WSBK » Aprilia boss talks World Superbike future


re: "Winning that title would be the best way to garner a profitable deal to continue in the WSBK." see, neals on wheels gets it. but alas, i think it's an indicator, they've "thrown in the towel" on SBK. even if they won, they know forth coming rule changes handicaps their bike. as we read (and just like i said in the past) they've ALWAYS known. more specifically, they know any potential satellite team worth their salt...? is going to be aware of this (aarrgh) and won't touch their kit with a 10 ft. spanner. aprilia unfortunately, has come away with the short end of the stick in a lot the big decisions made by Dorna in the past few years.

WSBK » Aprilia boss talks World Superbike future


re: "If we confirm to be in MotoGP next year there are two scenarios: One scenario is that Aprilia will disappear from here, it will stop. The other, which is what I hope will happen, is we are working on an agreement with a partner to allow this participation to go on.” romano baby you're not dead yet, there's a 3rd scenario... RTE, redesign the engine. and we both know this means opening the V angle (which you're going to do for GP anyway). but no worries, you still have good market position on production side. Ducati hasn't produced a mass market RVF (and prolly won't), and neither has Honda (despite their claims), and an even bigger question mark surrounds KTM...? so you still have the lead. KEEPING IT however means making the right decisions at the right time, and guess what...? the time is NOW.
