Video: Aprilia RSV4 v Nissan GT-R: Battle of the computers

Electronic rider aids are where it's at right now, love 'em or loathe 'em, and the Aprilia RSV4 Factory APRC (Aprilia Performance Ride Control) has the smoothest, most sophisticated system of any current motorcycle.

Aprilia SR Max 300: Taken to the Max

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 ...
