re: "Aprilia is now in need of a replacement"
a vacuum has been created. how it gets filled is going to be interesting. does aprilia promote lav to first string and it's really the 2nd seat that needs to be filled...? and what of the elephant in the room that says, "there really is no replacing a max biaggi".
ape's italian, do they want to try and continue the success of having an italian rider...? or without the notoriety of max, does the focus now shift on growing the brand in the best way possible...? can norge and guinters do this...?
that would almost point to a focus on US wealth (ie. like ducati) and attempt to rebuild their presence stateside. where's spies or dovi when you need them...? oh that's right they've signed on to have their careers shortened on ducati's jr. team. 2 stroke revenue replaced by wobbling CRT's in grandprix, and now no biaggi in production... noale's future once again hangs in the balance.
