Aprilia RS 250 SP — #Be a Racer Realised

  • 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.

Aprilia is on a roll. Besides the RS 660, Tuono 660 and updated RSV4 1100, they’ve added this Aprilia RS 250 SP.

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.”

Wahid's lust for motorcycles was spurred on by his late-Dad's love for his Lambretta on which he courted, married his mother, and took baby Wahid riding on it. He has since worked in the motorcycle and automotive industry for many years, before taking up riding courses and testing many, many motorcycles since becoming a motojournalist. Wahid likes to see things differently. What can you say about a guy who sees a road safety message in AC/DC's "Highway to Hell."
