Aprilia RS-GP

SC-Project will continue to supply exhaust for the Aprilia MotoGP team until 2024 after agreeing on a two-year extension.

  • SC-Project supplied Aprilia’s RS-GP exhaust system since 2021.
  • The Italian company becomes Aprilia’s Official Technical Partner. 

Aprilia and SC-Project partnership began in 2021 with the Italian manufacturer developing the exhausts for Aprilia’s RS-GP machine.

Since then, Aprilia took its first MotoGP podium in 2021 before claiming the maiden MotoGP race win in 2022 and is currently fighting for the World Championship with Aleix Espargaro.

That said, SC-Project has become an integral part of Aprilia’s climb to world championship glory.

“A solid and ambitious project like ours needs partners who share our same values.

“The one with SC-Project is a natural bond: two great Italian companies, technological leaders in their segments, with a sporty and innovative DNA.

“This is why we are proud to announce the continuation of our relationship, a path of common growth that, I have no doubt, will lead Made in Italy to excel on tracks all over the world,” said Aprilia Racing CEO Massimo Rivola.

Also, the two-year extension will now see SC-Project become the Official Technical Partner of Aprilia MotoGP. The SC-Project exhaust will be found in Aprilia’s production race bike department, including the RS660 Trofeo and the RS250 SP.

Meanwhile, Aprilia Racing Technical Director Romano Albesiano is relishing the extended partnership.

“The exhaust system is a key element of our new V4 engine, which is proving to be one of the most competitive in MotoGP.

This is also thanks to the technical synergy with SC-Project, a dynamic and competent company with whom we have established a profitable relationship. In a championship where it is the details that make the real difference, it is essential to be able to count on a supplier that has the technology and expertise to contribute to the development of our RS-GP project,” he said.

Aprilia telah pun mengesahkan bahawa bekas pelumba Yamaha, Maverick Vinales, akan membuat penampilan sulung bersama pasukan itu hujung bulan ini di Misano.

Vinales akan menunggang jentera RS-GP Aprilia dalam sesi ujian dua hari yang akan berlangsung pada 31 Ogos dan 1 September ini.

Ketua Pegawai Eksekutif (CEO) Aprilia, Massimo Rivola dalam satu kenyataan berkata, “Dari pandangan teknikal, amat mempersonakan untuk mendngar maklum balas pelumba yang menguji jenter baharu buat pertama kali.

“Terutamanya bagi sang juara seperti Maverick, yang kami rasa amat berbesar hati untuk menerimanya dalam keluarga Aprilia Racing.

“Dengan bakat dan kelajuan dimiliknya, kami tak sabar untuk bekerjasama,” jelasnya.

Difahamkan, ujian dua hari tersebut bakal menilai sama ada Vinales sudah bersedia untuk beraksi di GP Aragorn pada 12 September ini.

Bagaimanapun, dengan peluang uji jentera RS-GP diserahkan kepada Vinales, tidak dapat dipastikan apakah status seterusnya bagi Andrea Dovizioso, yang sebelum ini telah pun giat menguji jentera RS-GP bagi 2021.

The third time’s the charm.

It seems Aprilia might hand Andrea Dovizioso the factory seat for 2022 after the team confirms the rider to continue testing for the third time this season.

The three-time MotoGP runner up will continue testing onboard the Aprilia RS-GP next month in Misano ahead of a possible return to the grid next season.

The third test will take place on the 23rd and 24th of June at the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli.

The move will allow Aprilia to assess the strength and weakness of the RS-GP properly ahead of next season.

Moreover, since the second test at Mugello was heavily impacted by bad weather, the third test is crucial for Aprilia’s preparation.

“Since I wasn’t able to test at Mugello in dry conditions, I’m pleased that Aprilia Racing asked me to continue the work we started in Jerez and to be able to provide my contribution to developing the bike.

“I think this will be beneficial for both of us – for me, to continue training on a MotoGP bike in anticipation of a possible return in 2022 and for Aprilia to receive what they feel to be interesting information. For this reason, we decided to do more tests,” said Dovizioso.

Andrea Dovizioso got on the Aprilia RS-GP for the first time since his departure from Ducati at the end of last season.

It was a big day for the experienced rider who will push the RS-GP to the limit for a three-day private test in Jerez.

Although there is a lot of curiosity, the Italian will reserve his comments until the final day of testing.

Nonetheless, Aprilia gladly shared a few Dovizioso lap photos with the RS-GP clad in an all-black livery.

The Jerez test might just be focused on Dovizioso getting a feel of the bike, as the Noale-based company already booked a second test session in Mugello in the next few weeks.

There were also other familiar faces with Cal Crutchlow, Mika Kallio and Stefan Bradl joining Dovizioso in Jerez.

Meanwhile, it is not confirmed whether the Italian will remain as the team official test rider after the three-day testing in Jerez and Mugello.

It has become known that Aprilia is looking hard for a replacement to ride their 2021 Aprilia RS-GP in the MotoGP 2021 season.

The current Team Suzuki Ecstar rider Andrea Iannone has announced that he will be riding for the Aprilia factory squad for 2019 and 2020. This comes to as no surprise thanks to a number of rumours floating around for a while and further discussed after announcing his exit from Suzuki at the end of the season. (more…)
