I thought 2012 was to be his last year, its good for the series that he is continuing. Contracts time is always very late in WSBK, I guess we'll know where he is going around Magny Cours.

Of course Max wants to sign with Aprilia.
Why would he want to give up the huge advantage of riding a MotoGP bike against the (mostly) genuine road bike based field. Put him on a Honda and watch him finish dead last.

Damm 41 years old and still rocking.. GG Biaggi thats the motorcycle spirit!! Also Aprilia is very good bike.. People can enjoy the BMW and the road version can be more Powerfull but Aprilia is allways nice because it loocks like one bike that was design him 2015 insted of 2009..lolo The bike loocks and sounds cool and its more like one Motogp then one Wsbk.. I had one Aprilia Rsv Mille, Vtwin style i like t have the bike for 2 years can only say good about qualaty and realiability the perform was a little bit sad the Top Rpm dont have the Power we whant but it was nice bike.. If i had to choose one Italian no doubt Aprilia is the manufactor.. But i only buy the bike to have the feeling of the Vwtin the experience.. I think i will be more happy now or with one Ninja 10r or with one Yamaha R1=)

It's common for riders who are close to signing to engineer a bit of "other interest" to secure their final demands.
Max should, and will, stay with Aprilia. They appear to be the only team who are prepared to put up with his behaviourisms.

If other riders are abondoning ship at Ducati after testing the panigale, its harly an appealing riders who can already get a decent ride elsewhere. While Aprilia are falling behind in the development race/have lost their advantage, its still better than taking a risk with Ducati.

I like the fact everyone slates him and says he's only doing well because of the bike etc. He's 41 & blown all his team mates away so he can't be that bad can he ? He's good for the racing, he wins, he gets coverage so overall he's better to have than not. Most people on here love Leon Haslam, anyone want to list what he's won & how he's getting on against a world class team mate ? Max is a top top rider in this class & people like Haslam & Rea etc could do worse than see how he puts a championship together, ie stay on & get faster over a weekend/season. Forget whether he's cut it in GP, he rides in WSB.
