I don't know why everyone is saying the Aprilia is the best bike out there? Yes, Max is doing great, also his teammate is progressing quite well, but couldn't it be they are both strong riders? If they were finishing 1 - 2 every race I'd begin to question. Leon doesn't look too shabby, nor does Johnny Rea on his day (when he keeps it on the road).

Good look Jakub, you've been riding your balls off, hope this pans out for you.

PLEASE stop it with the RSV4 MotoGP bike rubbish! It is a production bike FFS! Can you go out and buy one from a dealer? Yes! Enough said. Besides the BMW has more power than the Aprilia, so is the S1000RR a MotoGP bike?

Biaggi and the team are the reasons why they are doing so well. The engineers are making the bike work perfectly for Max and his riding style. Who else is doing any good on an RSV4? No-one. Not even Camier can come close to super Max!

Another double win at Brno? I hope so! :)

I have to think that a key aspect to the switch has to be that Aprilia have pledged more (parts) support for the team than whatever (if any) Ducati was providing. Looks to be a win-win situation: more competitive machinery for the team, more development data--and exposure--for Aprilia.

Everybody says RSV4 is fast because, you can see the bike pull 10-bike lengths (exaggeration) by the end of the straight over the next bike.RSV4 has so much more usable power than BMW s1000R, the two powerful bikes ATM.

Yes, Max is a talented rider, but the RSV4 ain't no kawasucki. Just like casey stoner and the desmo in 2007. Skill + Machine
