Laverty's confidence high for 2013 title challenge

“We tried some swingarms at Jerez and with the 17-inch tyres we are going to have to re-evaluate some things all over again.

“One swingarm made the bike very stable but we lost a bit of grip in some areas, so we still have not quite cracked what we need from the swingarm but at least we have narrowed it down to two swingarms now,” he added.

“Honestly, there is not much in it, everything is good, and what we have been working on most is getting that front-end feeling.

“It was important to do some good laps in the test to show what we are capable of, and it is good for Aprilia to know how strong the bike can be.

“Hopefully I can pick up where Max left off and win some races.”

That bike is just gorgeous. And what a spectacular riding style! I can't wait for the beginning of the season... so many potential winners and Laverty is surely one of them.
