Aprilia RS4 125 The RS4 125 took over from the legendary RS125 in 2011, bringing four-stroke reliability to Aprilia’s 125cc sportsbikes for the first time.

Steve Farrell, 26 April 2013 07:00

1. Kawasaki Z800Bystanders gawp at the new Z800 and take photographs in this preposterous video from Kawasaki Australia. It's as though they've found a portal to another universe and not a mass production motorcycle. A trucker radios his mates and weirdly gets a nod from the passing rider. Two hairy Antipodeans applaud and give thumbs up to the parked bike. Clearly ...

Video: Aprilia USA in Space Shuttle tribute

Dan Aspel, 08 July 2011 10:39

Aprilia’s USA division has released the following tribute to the now decommissioned space shuttle program. It’s essentially an RSV4 advert, but with enough heart-stopping shots of 81 million horsepower rockets to justify the association. The Aprilia team says: “Crossing performance boundaries never thought possible and forging new frontiers in innovation… making and racing motorcycles wouldn't be entirely alien to the ...

Guy Procter, 23 June 2011 17:17

Look at bike ads from decades passed and you come away thinking some manufacturers today aren’t fighting hard enough for the customers they have. Most of all, why did they ever decide to let cars get away with selling themselves as fast or exciting or reasonably priced? So we're pleased to see a tentative return to the glory days with ...
