The Aprilia RSV4 is so much fun that despite a soaking wet track and pouring rain, MCN's Michael Neeves didn't want to give the keys back.

Neeves says that the Aprilia RSV4 is far less brutal than the RSV or Ducati 1198, making it much easier to ride. "Usually wet weather riding is something you have to tolerate but on the RSV4 it’s serious fun.

"There is so much feedback from the chassis and short shifting through the gears is the fastest way around the track because the engine is so flexible."
