The Aprilia RS 250 SP was also launched at EICMA.
It’s a purpose-built race bike.
Aprilia will hold a 6-race championship next year.
It’s a purpose-built race bike which the manufacturer aims to find the next grand prix superstar.
The bike is the result of a collaboration between Aprilia and Ohvale.
It’s fitted with the right high performance bits such as 17-inch wheels that will fit Pirelli race tyres, Brembo brakes, Ohlins suspension, SC Project race exhaust, among others.
The engine is sourced from Aprilia, while Ohvale will be in charge of production.
As promised, the Aprilia RS 250 SP will be the star of the Italian FMI Aprilia Sport Production Championship. The single-make series will run through six rounds in 2020, and Aprilia hopes to find the next Capirossi, Biaggi or Rossi.
“The new championship takes up a tradition that makes Aprilia unique, a brand that has taken generations of young people onto the track and that has raised up great champions,” said Massimo Rivola, CEO of Aprilia Racing.
“From 2020, thanks to the partnership with the Federation, we will once again be providing fun for young people who, in this championship, will find a way to make their dreams come true and perhaps, this is our wish, the start of a path in the world of competitive motorcycling.”
“This is why we have designed an easy bike and formula that will attract the highest number of young people to competitive motorcycling.”
