MCN, 20 October 2011 16:04

The Italian machine's clever computerised brain will help you change gear, control a spinning rear wheel, keep the front wheel on the ground under hard acceleration ...

Would you buy a hyper-scooter?

Guy Procter, 19 October 2011 15:29

It might be the first big scooter ever to catch your attention – and then only for an instant, because you thought it was a melted RSV4 – but the new Aprilia SRV850 begs the question: would you? It's 2011 after all, sports bikes no longer attract universal esteem and we've all got a bit more broad-minded. Are you ready ...

New Aprilia SRV850 superscoot debuts

Phil West, 18 October 2011 11:50

Aprilia has just released this picture of its new maxi-scoot – the SRV850. It’s basically an updated, face-lifted version of sister-company Gilera’s GP800. The Noale firm took a similar approach recently when it launched the  SR Max 300 scoot which was also essentially an updated, facelifted version of Gilera’s Nexus. The SRV has the same basic rolling chassis as the ...

Aprilia SR Max 300: Taken to the Max

Trevor Franklin, 07 October 2011 14:26

Aprilia’s new SR Max 300 fits neatly into the overcrowded maxi-scooter class, but with a less than subtle difference from its rivals – the Aprilia actually looks exciting to ride. With styling allegedly based on the RSV4 superbike – a little far-fetched, although the black/red colour scheme is eye-catching and the angular layout of the bike is striking – it ...

Michael Neeves, 03 August 2011 14:14

Our world-first test of the stunning new 201bhp F4 RR Corsacorta has revealed it to be not only the fastest MV Agusta we've ever ridden - but also the most refined. MCN rode the new £18k superbike at a special test on the Adria circuit, north-east of Bologna, Italy and can reveal that, thanks to the RR's new Ohlins suspension and lightweight ...

New Aprilia SR Max 125 and 300 scooters

Andy Downes, 23 June 2011 17:14

Aprilia has unveiled two new scooters called the SR Max 125 and 300 with styling Aprilia optimistically suggests is inspired by the RSV4 Superbike. The SR Max will go head to head with bigger scooters like the Suzuki Burgman and the Yamaha T-Max combining big wheels, larger than normal diameter forks for a scooter and decent brakes while keeping the ...

Tuono V4R too ugly? French to the rescue!

Guy Procter, 27 April 2011 17:26

Fabulous new Aprilia Tuono V4R too ugly for you? Here come the French, with what they hope is the answer - a modified RSV4, dubbed the V4 Street. Arriving just after the launch of the Tuono V4R the V4 Street would be the perfect riposte, if its prolapsed air intakes and hat-wearing headlight didn’t achieve the opposite of what was ...

Aprilia Tuono V4R: "An astonishing all-rounder"

MCN, 20 April 2011 16:37

The new Aprilia Tuono V4R (Don't like the looks? Find an older Aprilia Tuono for sale) knocked us for six at its world track and road launch in Valencia, Spain.

New Kawasaki ZX-10R gets mean (not green) makeover

Guy Procter, 01 April 2011 17:02

Kawasaki’s new ZX-10R may have lost the outright power battle with the BMW S1000RR and the handling scrap to Aprilia’s RSV4 APRC but it’s determined to walk away from the tussles head held high in the styling department. To that end Kawasaki USA’s taken the big Ninja to the ‘king of custom sportsbikes’ Robert Fisher, boss of Florida’s Roaring Toyz, ...
